Just a collection of tweets to exemplify the media’s bias against Bernie Sanders.
No big, just invert the poll numbers and change one of them:
Hey @MSNBC @SRuhle @AliVelshi @VelshiRuhle - what's going on with this graphic? Did you just decide to give @JoeBiden an extra 3 points in the poll?#ManufacturingConsent #Bernie2020 #BernieBlackout pic.twitter.com/XKin3Iedm6— Ԍεοϝϝ 🌹 (@SpittingBack) April 29, 2019
And a bit of lying:
Maybe someone didn’t hit the ‘sort’ button?
How about you just skip over the second place:
It's weird — in this poll, there's a candidate in a strong second place position, and yet once again, this particular candidate's name is apparently not allowed to even be mentioned by media organizations promoting the poll. https://t.co/eI2wgHt0uY— David Sirota (@davidsirota) July 9, 2019
Misquoting? Misquoting. Sure.
NBC, NYMag and https://t.co/3lLtokHTBy attributed one of Bernie Sanders’ quotes from the debate to Elizabeth Warren. I checked and it looks like it might have stemmed from an inaccurate rush transcript CNN sent to reporters.— Holly Otterbein (@hollyotterbein) October 17, 2019
The funny thing is it’s a very on-brand Sanders quote. https://t.co/0NOBsp4Br2 pic.twitter.com/ylmsdNG0Rd
Or just not mentioning his name in any headline.
CNN has five articles up about its new NH poll that shows Sanders in front, yet none of the five say that in the headline pic.twitter.com/ECJ11xEYLL— Ryan Grim (@ryangrim) October 29, 2019
Also not mentioning his name in the chyron:
getting kind of ludicrous pic.twitter.com/tjjPRWw5yF— wideofthepost (@wideofthepost) November 1, 2019
Or just change the poll entirely.
The poll on the right actually found Sanders in first. It’s even CNN’s poll. They dropped him to 2 anyway. pic.twitter.com/bNDfyZVwJa— Ryan Grim (@ryangrim) November 2, 2019
Quoting “expert” opinion except the “expert” just happens to work for Buttigieg. That’s not strange at all. Part 1:
this lede is fucking shameful https://t.co/AcV1Kajjp0— noah kulwin (@nkulw) November 15, 2019
no less bad: the first expert called in to criticize it is a "professor of international relations" who works as a climate adviser to Pete Buttigieg— Turkbert Cransauceko (@AlbertBurneko) November 15, 2019
Let’s skip over the second place again:
Here they import the Tories’ smear against Corbyn:
Bernie Sanders' associations paint a pattern of proximity to antisemitism, which raises the question: Is it that he really doesn’t notice, that he’s willing to tolerate it, or that he somehow also supports it?https://t.co/yinzXFICmH— The Federalist (@FDRLST) December 10, 2019
Why use new information when it contradicts your narrative?
CNN is now saying Bernie is in 4th place in Iowa.— Chicky Hearn (@ChickHearnBern) December 23, 2019
They had to use a poll over a month old to mis-inform it's audience this morning. We have had over 15 Iowa polls released since then that have Bernie in 1st or 2nd.
Still think this is not deliberate? pic.twitter.com/NRsbLcbwcv
One candidate is “trailing behind”, the other is in a “strong position”.
Compare and contrast the framing of these two stories. pic.twitter.com/BkOzAjcNLk— Matthew Sitman (@MatthewSitman) January 2, 2020
In which @vladduthiersCBS claims that the top three candidates in Iowa are Biden, Buttigieg, and Warren.— Samuel D. Finkelstein II (@CANCEL_SAM) January 7, 2020
Bernie is *leading* in Iowa, per RCP.
With just weeks to go, this is unacceptable. Vlad should do the right thing & make a correction on air tomorrow.pic.twitter.com/a2AMrGfyy3
