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

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

Published

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.

IRONY: Atlanta Protestors Take Riot, Vandalism to CNN Headquarters

The fake news network being targeted by the mob.

Published

Riotous protestors assembling in the wake of the George Floyd death in Atlanta picked a peculiar target for their demonstration- none other than CNN’s headquarters. The mob assembled in front of the entrance to the fake news network’s primary building on Friday afternoon.

The mob could be seen pitching glass bottles at the network’s doors, and most notably, vandalizing a giant ‘CNN’ statue with graffiti of various sorts.

“F*** CNN.”

That’s a harsher insult to the liberal mainstream media company than President Donald Trump has ever tweeted.

The protestors appear to be no fan of the fake news network, even as CNN has dishonestly presented the activities of other Floyd protestors in Minneapolis and around the country as ‘peaceful.’ Network operative Brian Stelter had tried to blame President Trump for violence during a segment Thursday night, claiming the President was escalating an already dangerous situation through a tweet announcing he’d send in the National Guard to Minneapolis.

Protestors could later be seen trying to bust into the profitable media company’s offices, banging against the glass doors.

Police cars on site were seen in a state of destruction during the protest. It doesn’t appear as if the law enforcement presence at CNN headquarters is big enough to deter the rioters from acts of vandalism targeting the news network.

Some protestors could later be seen burning an American flag in the vicinity of the CNN Center, making it all but certain that the riotous crowd is politically aligned with the left.

Any sort of vandalism or wanton property destruction is to be condemned, but it’s clear that CNN failed to consider the ramifications of the riots. Perhaps they’ll be more inclined to think of the consequences for small business owners and innocent bystanders after their own offices have been targeted.
