A trifle to get pleasure from whilst we hold out for final results tonight.
There is one thing so common about cable-news-observing populists picking a burn-it-all-down outsider applicant partly in the name of spiting the media.
I cannot set my finger on it, but it’ll arrive to me.
What is novel in this clip is that it’s the left’s network of preference, MSNBC, that she’s aiming to spite, not Fox Information. I under no circumstances observe it so I just can’t vouch for her issue but it’s unquestionably accurate that 1 effectively-acknowledged host on the community is vocally anti-Bernie. It would not surprise me if his assistance inside of the network is lukewarm at best — not between the harder ideologues like Maddow and Chris Hayes, who will surely truly feel the Bern if he’s the nominee (assuming they’re not now) but among the majority of their anchor steady. They are all lefties, but they are also all nicely paid out. And they are elites irrespective of whether they want to confess it or not.
Those people are Warren voters, the wine established. The “progressive but not grubby about it like individuals DSA types” established. The sort who get a gleam in their eyes when watching precocious technocratic manchild Pete Buttigieg prior to concluding that he’s far too youthful and slick. The form who like Amy Klobuchar and want to be supportive of a female but obtain her … unpredictable when push comes to shove. In their hearts they are Warren voters. It stands to rationale that they’d resent Bernie.
Gonna be a tough night for them. A tough month, definitely.
*On MSNBC* a New Hampshire voter claims she ended up voting for Bernie Sanders mainly because of how unfairly *MSNBC* lined his marketing campaign.
