Dem Voter Tells MSNBC She’s Voting for Bernie Because of Their Negative Sanders Coverage
It appears that some Democratic primary voters have noticed MSNBC’s increasingly strident coverage of Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)—and not only do they not like it, but it is causing them to cast their votes for Sanders in response.
“I think it is completely cynical to say that he’s lost 50 percent of his vote from the last time when there were two candidates,” the New Hampshire voter stated. “Now there are multiple wonderful candidates that would be great presidents, people that I think we can unify and get behind, but the kind of stock Bernie cynicism that I heard from a number of people, I watch MSNBC constantly, so I heard that from a number of commentators, it made me angry enough, I said Bernie has my vote.”
“This is an interesting point,” he said. “What you’re saying is, and we take criticism, we’re journalists, we have to be open-minded, you’re saying that hearing from people—whether guests, contributors—the conversations you’ve heard that you felt were designed to tear down Senator Sanders or ‘stop him’ actually endeared him to you.”
