I tried to watch some of the TV coverage of the West Virginia primary results last night, but couldn’t get any further than the graphics put up by CNN and MSNBC with their misleading and false Democratic delegate counts.
To explain why I get angry when MSNBC uses this graphic,
including the “super delegates” in their total delegate count, even after they’ve been told implicitly by the Chair of the DNC NOT TO!
CNN does the same thing. Here’s their delegate count graphic from last night
Still using those superdelegates to mislead the public about how close Clinton is to winning, discouraging potential Sanders voters from turning out. And yes, they were also told, in no uncertain terms, NOT TO DO THAT!
Sadly, as citizens concerned about the blatant propaganda being presented as “news” are left with no recourse; cable so-called-news channels are not subject to FCC rules that would prevent this type of medial malpractice. I supposed I’ll have to start watching the network news shows to see if they’re as blatant in their shilling as are the cable channels. Stay tuned.
