Blackout Tuesday: The Bernie Sanders Speech Corporate Media Chose Not To Air

Though Bernie Sanders had an admittedly disappointing night on Tuesday, losing four of five primary contests to rival Hillary Clinton, he still took to the stage in Phoenix, Arizona to speak to his supporters and television cameras about his vision for the nation and the drive of his campaign moving forward.

The problem? No cable or major news channel ran the speech. Not all of it. Not even some of it.

      Kamtan, while I’m not a fan of Hillary Clinton and still feel the Bern, I find it offensive that you refer to her as a “wicked witch” and “first female bitch.”

        At long last we see someone calling out. Kamptan on his condescending if not misanthropic attitudes towards women. Way to go! Sexist comments are out of place here.

    You have to be here to read the tea leaves. Sanders means well but he is going nowhere. Dont know where you get your news but If you are a church going man pray that who you call the “wicked witch” becomes the next US President. If the U.S. go down Europe going with us.

      I agree with you, Albert: “If the U.S. go down Europe going with us.” I would go even further in saying that the future of our world rests in the hands of the next person Americans elect as president.
