The Washington Post has decided it doesn’t need to pretend to be neutral anymore, and wants to wade into the realm of political opinions… but only when it comes to Bernie Sanders. Challenging a Republican on what their deficit holes go to pay for is bad form. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“In what has to be some kind of record, the Washington Post ran 16 negative stories on Bernie Sanders in 16 hours, between roughly 10:20 PM EST Sunday, March 6, to 3:54 PM EST Monday, March 7—a window that includes the crucial Democratic debate in Flint, Michigan, and the next morning’s spin…
All of these posts paint his candidacy in a negative light, mainly by advancing the narrative that he’s a clueless white man incapable of winning over people of color or speaking to women.
