Our corporate media is a joke. I can’t even watch the debates because they are so rehearsed and so rigged with how and who asks the questions. And you would think @MSNBC would actually hold the candidates accountable versus the fluff we see from the other side. Sadly, it’s just not the case. Both sides are loaded with propaganda.
Nomika Konst nailed it in her Tweet asking these simple questions:
Imagine a debate where the moderators asked:
“What percentage of your money came from Wall Street?”
“How much is your average donation?”
“Have you ever taken oil, insurance, charter school money?”
“What do you think about unions?”
“What should the minimum wage be today?”— Nomiki Konst🌹 (@NomikiKonst) June 28, 2019
Can you imagine the faces of the candidates if they actually had tough questions?
Who would rise to the occasion and who would collapse under the pressure? Who would drop out and who would stick around?
From all the articles and coverage I’ve read about the debates, Bernie Sanders ideas are everywhere causing Jamie Dimon alarm. Poor Jamie hates being the target of anything but trillion-dollar bailouts. And the net loser — Joe Biden who bailed out Jamie and his fellow banksters.
Let’s be clear, the debates are almost meaningless because real journalists aren’t allowed to ask the questions of the candidates. Independent journalists running the debates would make for interesting viewing but what we have now is simply entertainment. And if you cannot succeed under a Hollywood environment, we don’t want you in the White House.
I believe that’s the angle David Sirota was taking as well in writing:
Personal opinion: I think it would be good for there to be a presidential debate in which the questions don’t come only from millionaires paid by billionaires.— David Sirota (@davidsirota) June 28, 2019
