Though the talking heads were allowed to ramble on and on and on Tuesday night, the major cable and network news made no time for people to watch this. With more than half the delegates yet to be chosen and a calendar that favors Bernie he is STILL in!

The Media is run, not by REAL newspeople, but by Ad money men who could care less about reporting important news.

Why even media conglomerates need to be broken up into smaller corporations. Thanks Dandelion

Actually, I had just watched his Phoenix speech tonight on C-Span. Yep, Bernie's dangerous, to the media as much as to Wall Street! Still, he'll be getting more ratings eventually,- with all of your help.
One day the lying witch will fall!

Mainstream media is owned by .... part of the 1%
And along comes this man of integrity who shows them up

So what we are seeing is how the 1% democracy ensures that people don't understand "democracy" as anything but continuing the "status quo"

THIS IS A MARVELOUS SPEECH.....no wonder CORPORATE ENTITIES didn't want too many to view or listen to it.

Pass this around and encourage others to listen to it. Get the rest of America out there to vote for Bernie. If not you'll be stuck with Corporate Hillary or Corporate Donald either way we have lost.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Dandelion.
I hadn't been able to watch this until now; really glad I took the time! Yes, that was a fantastic speech---much more worthy of viewing than the sorry excuses they did run on cable networks. I didn't see this on msnbc. They put on T-Rump and I think it was Cruz's speeches....don't remember because I changed channels. But, I flipped back to see election updates, and their speeches were very long, because I kept switching channels.

I also never found out how large that rally was in Phoenix. The one last summer was 12,000 or more. (And there's another one in Tucson tomorrow). I have noticed that TV media rarely tells the size of Bernie's crowds. Only from what I've read online have I found out how small Clinton's crowds are. Yes, it is very clear to me how Establishment Media is doing their best to sideline Bernie. This speech definitely indicates why.

Sad to see so much bias. 'The squeaky gate gets the most oil', and Trump 'squeaks' louder the rest. Why would someone vote for Bernie if they aren't allowed to learn anything about him?

It is a great speech, so common sense and true. The media blackout of Sanders is unbelievable, especially considering how popular he has proven to be, but of course he threatens the owners of the media. And of course there will still be people yammering about the "liberal media" even after this.

I voted for you Bernie! Over 70% in my township voted for you too! Too bad the rest of IL voted for the wrong one!

This is a great speech! Thank you Dandelion. Also thank you for clearing up the current state of play with the primaries. With the data given out by mainstream media here in Australia as is the same in the US, I was feeling that the ship was sinking. Now I see that this thing really can happen, it is possible that there will be a sane and brave President of the United States! Keep going US, you can do it!

The only things the 1% don't own and operate are Bernie Sander's and his supporter's souls. Ty Dandelion.

TY Dandelion for sharing this. I watched for Bernie and could not believe he wasn't on the media after the 5 states voted. But, not surprised since corporate media own the airways. This a wonderful speech. Go Bernie noted.

Thanks Sheryl for all your hard work and for your granddaughter standing up to her teacher too. This is shameful that our "free press" is not delivering to the American public all the news and information about Bernie.

I still have high hopes, though they are waning, for Bernie and if not him in the Oval Office, then his ideas at least. There's a ways to go but it truly is uphill.

Thanks!

It is difficult (at least for me) to hear a bad Bernie speech simply because he always emphasizes the Sources/Origins of our present predicament not the political/media distractions.

The media ignore Bernie as much as possible. He is a threat to their corporate owners. We don't get real news anymore. I am still feeling "the Bern"!

Well, we have Saturday Night Live where, last week, "Hillary" (over the course of several capsulized speeches), morphed into Bernie. Clear as a bell...

Excellent Nancy, had not seen it but I'll place it below for others to view. As they say, if you want the REAL DEAL vote for Bernie Sanders. They hit the nail on the head and most people see it. Hillary thinks we are all blind.
Hillary Clinton Morphs Into Bernie Sanders
