Sanders Goes After Media’s Most Sacred Cow

MSNBC‘s report, for example, cut from Sanders comment, “The secretary is right, and that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails,” to his words, “Enough of the emails. Let’s talk about the real issues facing America.”

What came in between, which MSNBC and others cut out, was Sanders saying to CNN‘s Anderson Cooper:

Anderson…let me say something about the media, as well. I go around the country, talk to a whole lot of people. Middle class in this country is collapsing. We have 27 million people living in poverty. We have massive wealth and income inequality. Our trade policies have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know whether we’re going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of Citizens United. Enough of the emails….
