This is the kind of #FAKENEWS we have to put up with on a daily basis even from the "leftmost" MSM network.

How can someone lie so blatantly or know absolutely nothing about the major candidate he is covering and still have a job the next day? These networks have no credibility. Obviously, they get lucky and hire some credible journalists here and there but its all blind luck.

I feel like one of the worst things the media could do right now is try to get the populace to believe that in the event of a Trump victory, it was Russia (or some other country, or a combination) that actually got him elected. Regardless of who wins, the results shouldn't be de-legitimized.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/21/politics/intelligence-briefing-republican-behind-the-scenes/index.html

And of course a foreign country is going to prefer a weak candidate. Why wouldn't they?

What Trump should really do, is instead of being (very) reactionary to assessments such as what is listed in the CNN article, get out in front of the assessment, find out how it detailed Russia as meddling, and do his best to prevent it in 2020. That isn't going to happen though. Knowing Trump, he'll probably just let it happen because he thinks it will help him get elected.

So you're saying if there's evidence that Russia is interfering, and all of our intelligence agencies are saying there is interference, the media shouldn't report that?

No fuck this bullshit. The Russians magically helping everyone the democrats don't want as soon as they start to lose. Now they are just going to play on widely held misconceptions that Russia and Bernie are communists who want to help each other.

This is all establishment democrats can do to try to win because they have no real policies.

Bernie gave the perfect answer and now CNN is wondering why Bernie didn't come out and announce that Russia was helping his campaign a month ago? Its laughable and you are laughable for not seeing the same carbon copied routine being used to undermine candidates who are on opposite ends of the spectrum.

DNC corruption? Russia
HRC's emails? Russia
HRC black problems? Russia
Donald Trump election? Russia
Jill Stein campaign? Russia
Tulsi Gabbard? Russian agent
Bernie surge? thanks to Russia

Super cool that the MSM just parrots Trump’s “greatest visit ever” nonsense instead of reporting what actually was going on in India when he was there.

I swear Chris Hayes (who RT’d this) might be the only evening host across all networks to actually come close to the needed journalistic rigor this time calls for.

It’s still amazing to see how a rambling, semi coherent and contradictory presser from Trump gets repackaged into headlines, stories and tv clips that turn him into a normal President.

i wouldn't say that is an extremely well accepted claim among Americans. Bernie supporters might like to say this bc it makes it easier to deflect from the socialist boogeyman critiques, but that doesn't make it actually true no matter how close those 2 terms may be. if bernie had branded himself a "social democrat" years ago, he would have had a lot easier time appealing to more Americans. the fact that he insisted on calling himself any kind of "socialist" is 1) telling and 2) very dumb (politically, at least)

sanders positions are as a social democrat. he wants to regulate capitalism. i don't think his label hurts him, its essentially part of his brand and he wouldn't be attacked less as a socialist if he didn't use that label. sanders embracing the term has really weakened it's effectiveness as an attack, having a prominent national politician use the label really detracts from the boogeyman status.

i'm hardly the first to point this out

he probably wasn't a social democrat 40 or 50 years ago, but he is now

Doesn't Hannah Arendt have a quote to the effect of "revolutionaries don't make a revolution". I think she is talking about physical confrontation but I think it translates to today.

All these nerds voting for Bernie wouldn't know what to do if a revolution walked up and smacked them on their pimply face. It's a guy like this Carlos who understands power and has capital and can push abunch of worthless virgins towards whatever weird agenda he has.

With that being said, I never heard of this person until now.
