MSNBC Shilling for Hilliary

It was disgusting to watch (3/30/16) Maddow misquote Bernie Sanders to set Hillary up. Hillary then went on to go along with Maddow's suggestions and imply that Bernie does not think womens' reproductive rights are important compared to economic issues. That's clearly not what Bernie said over and over again in his interview with Maddow, and Hillary absolutely knows Bernie is a life-long defender of women's rights. Also, Hillary's deliberate defamanation of Bernie's ethics last night once again demonstrates the character flaws that argue she should not be our next president.

It was also very obvious when Maddow avoided asking Hillary (or Bernie) the most important question about future delegate counts at the Democratic convention: What will Hillary do if Bernie has more pledged delegates than she does? Does she intend to demand Super Delegates over-ride the will of the electorate despite past practice? Instead we got gibberish about Hillary's vs Bernie's total votes equating caucus votes with primary votes. To state the obvious, a caucus vote requires much greater effort and thus one caucus vote represents many more easier-to-cast primary votes.

Also, no questions for Hillary about poll after poll showing Bernie beating all the potential Republican candidates with margins much larger that Hillary's, that includes the essential related discussion of the importance of Independents in the real election. Bernie wins independent's and even some Republican votes, where Hillary can not. She is a weak candidate specifically because she represents the old Corp Democratic party most voters have learned to distrust through direct experience. Center-Right has been a lie for way too many years and Center-Left does not trust Hillary.

Finally, at the end of broadcast, I got to watch the MSNBC hit squad claim Bernie was "cranky" after Maddow forced him to talk endlessly about delegate process issues when his entire campaign has been a never-ending attempt to get the media to discuss real issues and not the daily reality-TV distractions of the cynical monsters that currently engineer our political conversations. That, by the way was the real context behind Maddow's ugly distortion that Bernie had said econmic issues were more important than a woman's right to choose. Bernie was once again asking the ^%#$^&*(*^%&*(&^ media / MSNBC to address all the issues, not just the latest crafted insane distraction from Trump.

I wonder whether the folks at MSNBC really think such obvious bias is not obvious to their viewers? Why should I ever trust Maddow's judgement and MSNBC programming again?
