Sanders Campaign Manager Admits: Fox News “Fairer” Than MSNBC

Faiz Shakir is this close to calling the liberal mainstream media channel ‘fake news.’

Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, slammed MSNBC in an interview with Vanity Fair, calling out the mainstream media network’s bias in a manner that some might expect to hear from a conservative Republican.

Shakir even admitted that Fox News is “more fair than MSNBC.

The network has generally adopted an editorial stance in opposition to Sanders, refusing to admit that the Vermont democratic socialist is a front-runner for the Democratic nomination after winning the New Hampshire primary.

According to Shakir, MSNBC exhibits a prejudice against Sanders supporters that doesn’t appear entirely unlike the editorial stances mainstream media entities like CNN adopt towards conservative Trump supporters.

You can feel the disdain they have for Bernie Sanders’s supporters. It’s a condescending attitude: ‘Oh, they must not be that intelligent. They’re being deluded. They’re being conned. They’re all crazy Twitter bots.’ My view is that there’s a bit of detachment from MSNBC and the people who this campaign gets support from. It feels like they’re covering progressives from an elitist perspective.

Shakir claims to have approached the President of MSNBC, Phil Griffin, seeking to confront him on the topic of slanted coverage from the channel regarding the Sanders campaign.

Sanders generally has proven more willing to appear on Fox News than other Democrats have, even doing a town hall event with the right-of-center news network.

One could hope that the Sanders campaign’s experience with the dishonesty of mainstream media networks like MSNBC and CNN could lead them to understand what the concept of fake news really means. But conservatives should hold their breath until well after the 2020 to see if they’ve learned their lesson.

CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes

The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.

CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.

Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.

Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.

Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…

Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.

What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?

The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
