keep hearing the talking heads on the corporate news saying “nobody” expected Bernie Sanders to win Michigan. It’s a good thing that many Americans have stopped listening to the pundits. Most Americans are not sitting around waiting for CNN to tell them what will happen.
Gone are the days of reporters waiting for a story to develop. Instead they try to shape the story themselves. There is a place for opinion-based journalism. I for example don’t hide my support for Bernie Sanders. The problem is when reporters are selling themselves as nonpartisan but are participating in the selling of one candidate.
RSN readers know we are a progressive site that has endorsed Bernie Sanders. CNN, MSNBC, and other news networks claim to be nonpartisan. We see them constantly creating their own reality.
