After Saturday night's debate, it's more evident than ever that the senator from Vermont isn't getting a fair shake.

The media has incredible power to manipulate swinging voters before an election It has the power to destroy a candidate the media barons dislike ,We saw evidence of this in my country when the Rupert Murdoch press and radio with constant slagging and criticizing of the then P.M Gough Whitlam managed to turn destroy him.I've already notice some negative criticism of Bernie He has some very powerful opponents and they will stop at nothing to discredit him and put him down,You cannot allow his opponents to succeed.America needs this man to lead it into a new era ,to abolssh poverty, to restore equality among people and true democratic freedom for all

Bernie is terrifying to some - he wants a political revolution which this country desperately needs. It's SO important that we stand up to those who would destroy his chances and that we all vote.

You better believe he isn't getting a fair shake and it's so obvious to anyone paying attention. I also just placed a story onto C2 concerning where else his message is being blocked.

I Bernie won't need the media if everyone who supports him keeps spreading the word to the world just like Dandelion , Cal, TomCat , et al here on c2.....the bigger issue is whether whomever does not support the DNC primary winner will come out and vote for the other so as to avoid a PresidenttRUMP or Cruz or whomever

I am supporting Bernie Sanders in the primary and the general election. I will not support Hillary. She is as much a corporatist as any Republican. Even though she appears to be moving towards the left, it's certainly not because that's where she would be heading if Bernie wasn't in the race. We need a political revolution and so far, Bernie is the only one who has been talking about it.

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
While what the media is doing is wrong, my bet is that Bernie will turn these lemons into lemonade. Trump is sucking up all the oxygen right now, and I think that will be his downfall. Bernie's campaign is about as "grassroots" as you can get. He got 12,000 people in Phoenix, AZ to his rally a few months ago. And, he's getting similar crowds in other red states. The power of the people will overwhelm the media in coming weeks, and Bernie can't be ignored or sidelined. Feel the Bern!

I will be voting him no matter what the media does. They are such manipulators and not always truthful. I don't trust most politicians and the media can be bought. Oy vey!

Dave C. is right on the money. End run the media, leave 'em behind in the dust, in the dark. They don't represent our interests, we won't be concerned about theirs.

Its our country, doesn't belong to the media, doesn't belong to the special interests, corporations, republican or democrat party.

i will vote for Bernie over Hillary any day. It is unfortunate the corporate media influence pushing people to vote against their best interests. A shame people can't think for themselves. We need a serious shake up like Bernie has in mind. I think Bernie has a better shot than the media would like to portray.

Corporate Media and SuperPacs makes it difficult for Bernie but now he also have to fight the DNC.

All difficulty disappears, barriers will melt away to greater and greater degrees as more see their interests best represented with Bernie Sanders and invest their confidence in a man willing and able to spearhead a vision for a productive, safe and healthful future.

Of course the inverse is valid as well. As soon as we become less vigilant, step away, are no longer supportive. The success of the vision will erode. It only works if support remains, shoulder to shoulder, each doing his or her part to the degree that they can through the campaign, election and then especially during the entire term of office.

We see it now. Obama had a huge mandate and the electorate believed that it was enough simply to elect a man to office. The persistence of the mischief makers prevailed while his support melted away in complacency. That electorate failed him, he has not failed the electorate

It can happen again, its really just up to us. There is no substitute for standing up for your values, staying informed, sharing thoughts, forming opinions and then selecting a person willing to champion those values politically.

Its your world, what are you going to do about it?

The media is working hard to get Trump elected. 1%ers all!! The oligarchy we now function within is rapidly becoming fascist thanks to the blind supporters of Trump.
