Sander’s Campaign Slams Press For ‘Bernie Write-Off’

The Bernie Sanders campaign is expressing its frustration with press coverage of their Presidential campaign. As Real Clear Politics reports:

Jeff Weaver said Sanders has gained momentum in the presidential race but he complained that the Vermont senator hasn’t received the coverage he deserves after a strong showing in the second primary debate. The senior campaign adviser told reporters Monday that the imbalance isn’t fair.

“We also wanted to have this call just to encapsulate some of the thinking of the campaign. Last time there was this experience — which has now been well-documented but wasn’t recognized by some at the time — called the ‘Bernie blackout,’” Weaver said of Sanders’ 2016 bid for president…

“There seems to be a direct correlation between the media coverage of polls and Bernie Sanders’ specific standing in those polls,” Weaver said. In his telling, “the better the number is in the poll, the less coverage it receives. And the worse he does, the more it receives.”…

The campaign is rolling out evidence to support an alternative narrative. “The polling data clearly shows that Bernie’s campaign is doing very well in a solid second place and has momentum and has made up ground especially after the second debate,” pollster Ben Tulchin insisted. “There is a lot of data to verify that, as opposed to cherry-picking a couple polls that don’t have Bernie doing as well, which are outliers.”

Although Bernie’s campaign may have legitimate complaints about biased media coverage, could it simply be that most Americans just don’t support socialism?
