Bernie Sanders makes Trump-like attack on Washington Post
Bernie Sanders makes Trump-like attack on Washington Post Bernie Sanders makes Trump-like attack on Washington PostThe Washington Post is pushing back at criticism from Senator Bernie Sanders 2020 Democratic hopeful last of the post coverage of his campaign, and he argues that it is biased because it is owned by Amazon. Ceo Jeff Bezos, listen to Sandra answer yesterday, how much Amazon paid in taxes last year. I don’t know why the comments along those lines were echoed by his campaign and prompted by Marty. Baron executive editor for the Washington post code. Senator Sanders is a member of a large Club of politicians of every ideology who complain about their coverage. Contrary to the conspiracy theory that the senator seems to favor, Jeff Bezos allows our Newsroom to operate with full Independence, as our reporters and editors can a test this year for USA Today and Brittany Shepherd National politics reporter for Yahoo news good morning guys. I was a little surprised, sanderstead himself, but it’s not Embassy his campaign really taking on the media without providing any evidence of bias. Just listened to his campaign manager secure, he was unreliable sources of Brian stelter. Just a few weeks ago, you’re going to cut the commercial breaks and going to see some pharmaceutical ads you’re, going to see a lot of ads that are that are basically paying your bills in the bills of of this, the entire media Enterprise and what is incentivizing, You and others to make sure you’re asking the questions and driving the conversation in certain areas and not in certain areas, so evidence, provided. I think it’s perfectly inbounds to complain about your coverage right if you think this is this is what every single campaign doesn’t even Barack Obama’s campaign people often sink when they’re running for president that they are the only person who doesn’t like their coverage, and that’s that’s Just not true this moving into these kind of conspiracy theories about. Why is what’s different and I think in the climate there were in right now, the president of United States, who has really gone after all, media that hasn’t fallen completely in line with him and really is offering full to support. Everybody else has been attacked, and so I think what the Sanders campaign is doing it is falling into is using that same Playbook Franklin up and it would be problematic even without Donald Trump – is considering the culture that were in where the media is under. Such constant attack, I think that you should be very purple about the activation to making you better be able to back them up. The washing post has been really critical, reporting Amazon to absolutely Kirsten, said something that you said to Poppy’s that Bernie Sanders and his campaign is not really put forth any facts or evidence when they’re pressed about what the Washington Post is doing – and I do think there’s A concern, and especially concerned as we were gearing up in this Mary Ann, is going to be compared to Donald Trump again again, again, again, that’s on a comparison he wants. He wants to hear Elizabeth Warren saying he wants to hear more Progressive parts of his party. Like AOC and when you’re going against such a standard, like the Washington, just come out and said from Marty Baron himself that you are perpetuating a conspiracy that sounds just like the president United States, calling the Washington Post Amazon’s Washington Post getting too very sticky Camp painters. So I just wonder if there’s no, if you think that this is going to be picked up by other Democratic 2020 contenders, the Biden Camp is not happy with the media covering the multiple gas and Miss statements is made over the past few weeks. Listen to Tim Ryan, Ohio, Congressman Tim Ryan, also presidential candidate and his read. Let me tell you what he said. He said this is such an important election. We’Ve got to all be our best. We can’t make mistakes because the right-wing noise machine they take. Something like that they put up a false equivalence. I mean that’s a fine thing to say it is dividing campaign believes, and I said I don’t think I thought about. I don’t think it’s out of bounds to to say that you don’t think you’re getting Fair coverage and you know an end to detail why you think you are you know I don’t agree with what Simone said. I think it’s the fact that you have a president that the age of Joe Biden who seems to be mixing things up and not getting things right. It does raise the question of who is this guy going to be ready to go up against Trump? That’S a fair thing: I don’t expect the campaign to agree with hot for them to push back. I think what’s problematic, CNN asking questions are behaving in a certain way because of the ads that are playing while they’re on are which, as we all know, we don’t know what ads are coming on when we’re by there and it’s so it’s so. You need to be able to 2 if you’re going to make that accusation better, be able to offer some proof. Otherwise, you are acting. I’M sorry, it hasn’t been beneficial to Donald Trump in some groups, Britney meaning is there a? Is there a political price to pay? Keeps making unsubstantiated allegations like this absolutely nice, specially with young voters and swing voters – and I want to Joe Biden’s campus saying – is – I think it’s the Bernie Sanders is that true is a media narrative and a voter narrative? I think that’s about it, but the voter narrative is definitely not solidified and even though in the polling resting that Bernie Sanders among the top for your top for Joe Biden is usually the front runner and all national polls they have Duty into their base to get Not only solidify the support they have, but to get new voter, so young voters about to make up 10 % of the electorate in 2020 and young voters are across-the-board, not necessarily gunning for any of the top contenders. The Bernie Sanders if he wants to risk losing those young people, he should really be aware of what he saying in regards to the fake news: fake news, media coverage. Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders sounded eerily similar to President Donald Trump when he took a swipe at Washington Post suggesting there was a link between the coverage he receives from the Washington Post and his rhetoric toward Amazon because both are owned by Jeff Bezos.
