- The media manufactures consent.
- Trump is pumped into everyone's home.
- Trump got 23 times the coverage of Bernie Sanders (example: 81 min. on Trump, 20 sec. on Sanders).
- Sanders is breaking every record, he is shaming the media. You break every record and there is a blip in the corporate media radar screen.
“According to one tally of nightly broadcast network news during the 2015 primary season, Sanders received a total of 20 minutes of coverage, compared to Clinton’s 121 minutes and Trump’s 327.” (NY Times)
“Another study that focused solely on network coverage showed Sanders receiving 6 percent of the coverage Trump did on network news in 2015, and 16.5 percent that of Clinton.” (Alternet)
The most impressive here is not that Sanders has so little time coverage compared to the other two. This was something, more or less, expected. The most impressive, is that Donald Trump, who is promoted as "anti-establishment", takes more time coverage in the media, even compared to the definitely-pro-establishment Hillary Clinton!
