LOL: Bernie Sanders Gets Trolled on Social Media for Standing with Deadbeat ‘Deadspin’ Writers

Sanders is a joke.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is getting trolled hard for coming out in favor of the writers’ revolt that is happening within the failing sports blog, Deadspin.

The fledgling Democratic presidential candidate issued a message of solidarity to the website’s writers on Thursday who are staging a revolt after being asked to do their jobs and write about sports instead of writing about unpopular social justice topics.

Bernie followed his embarrassing tweet up with a link to his op/ed to save journalism through massive government intervention meant to prop up left-wing propaganda outlets that the market has rejected.

“Real journalism requires significant resources. One reason we do not have enough real journalism in America right now is because many outlets are being gutted by the same forces of greed that are pillaging our economy,” Sanders wrote.

He also wants to “reinstate and strengthen media ownership rules, and we will limit the number of stations that large broadcasting corporations can own in each market and nationwide. We will also direct federal agencies to study the impact of consolidation in print, television, and digital media to determine whether further antitrust action is necessary.”

Twitter was not kind to Sanders for his plan to essentially bail out Deadspin. They blasted the socialist fossil for his absurd and out-of-touch rhetoric.

The Deadspin writer exodus occurred earlier this week following an internal memo telling writers to stick to sports and drop unpopular woke takes:

The sports blog Deadspin, which is owned by G/O Media, is falling to pieces after an internal memo from management told writers to “stick to sports” due to a massive fan backlash against political content.

The entitled social justice warrior staffers have staged a revolt, with many quitting their positions rather than performing the jobs they were hired to do…

However, G/O Media claims that the changes they are making are in fact good for business. They are responding to market demand at a time when demand for “woke” sports media is in the toilet.

“In September, unsurprisingly, 24 of the top 25 stories on Deadspin were sports-related while non-sports content accounted for less than 1 percent of the page views on the site,” a spokesman for G/O Media said.

The spokesman added that “our writers have a free hand to cover the intersection of sports and politics, sports and pop culture, sports and business, or, frankly, just about any topic even tangentially related to sports.”

Sanders response to Deadspin’s fall demonstrates the problems with the ideology of socialism. It completely ignores the economic reality of any situation, and props up entities in the marketplace that have zero worth to consumers.
