#HologramTHREAD: DNC Bullshit

I've slept on this. I've thought about not saying it. I've thought about just keeping it to myself.

I can't.

The DNC made a special provision to keep Tom Steyer in the race and give him a shot at Debate #5.

Billionaire Tommy Boy, late to show up
to the Election of the Century, (1) bought his way into Debate #4 with dubious means, and now (2) had the DNC kowtow to him to keep him (and his money) around for a while longer.

As someone representing a true grassroots candidate, this is INFURIATING. Here's what it is:
Because Steyer has been pouring his $$billions$$ into Iowa and New Hampshire. Every so often, odd polls would show up with Steyer pulling 6% in an early state. There's no way that Steyer can get 3% nationally: He has zero grassroots. He runs $$millions$$ in online ads to get

1/15 This race reminds me of the rule in boxing, a split decision goes to the champ. That's how Biden has stayed on top, plus he's authentic both in screw ups and in sincere moments such as talking about the loss of his wife/kids. #ABCDemDebate #joebiden beta.washingtonpost.com/politics/biden…
2/ Elizabeth Warren's strength is her wonky, thoughtful "I'm not a typical Washington politician" and "I have a plan for that". Dodging the tax question makes her a typical Washington politician. #ewarren #ABCDemDebate #taxes theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
3/ Sanders seems incapable of modulating his speech beyond shouting and haranguing. It was interesting, however, that he finally was willing to abandon Venezuelan President Maduro. #berniesanders #venezuela #ABCDemDebate cbsnews.com/news/bernie-sa…

Two of these people are 40yrs older than four of the others.
At some point we need to talk about that.
The 2020 nominee must be able to be the 2024 incumbent.
Otherwise, 2024 will cede the White House back to the #GOP, like in 1980.
Three of these people would better serve the country by running for the Senate 2020. Without winning back the Senate in 2020, a Democratic president will continue to be limited by having no control over the judiciary which is already being packed by Trump.
Half of these people have not polled above 1%.

So last month the MSM was treating #BernieSanders like the nominee.
Now they're treating #Biden like he's the nominee.

THE FIRST VOTE IS NEXT YEAR.

It's two months till debates. But if other candidates are shut out of coverage, how many will be allowed on the stage?
Where were
#KamalaHarris, #ElizabethWarren, #AmyKlobuchar, #KirstenGillibrand, #JulianCastro,
#CoryBooker,
#Beto
and
#Buttigieg--the remaining top ten candidates--campaigning Monday? Because all we heard about was #Biden in #Pittsburgh.
In an interview on @AC360, Sanders was asked about Biden only. Sanders said he was running against 19 other candidates.

He's right. The MSM is wrong.

For weeks I have been covering the news blackout on women candidates.
Tonight THREE have Town Halls on @CNN.

Women candidates are getting shut out of mainstream media coverage epgn.com/news/128-polit…
#KamalaHarris continues to poll in the top three of the 20+ candidates running for the Democratic nomination. She gave the top-rated town hall of the primary season in February. She's back tonight at 10pm EST on @CNN.
Last year #AmyKlobuchar stood up to the #GOP in a town hall on #healthcare and riveted the country with her calm takedown of #BrettKavanaugh when he attacked her during the Senate hearings.
Watch her tonight in a @CNN Town Hall at 7pm EST.

Women candidates are still being shut out of MSM coverage.
Not one female candidate on the Sunday shows for the third week in a row.
@ThisWeekABC has @TimRyan.
@FaceTheNation has @CoryBooker.
@MeetThePress has @JayInslee.

I've been writing about this for several weeks.
1/
If women keep getting shut out of MSM attention, their polling numbers will drop. Then it becomes self-fulfilling that men poll better.
Remember, Biden polls highest because he's not in the race.

I wrote about this here:

There are more stats on the coverage here:

This week in MSM: "Bernie is grumpy and shouty and yells at everyone and never smiles, but he's just a lovable curmudgeon."

Last week in MSM: "Klobuchar thought she deserved to eat her lunch with utensils, not a comb, what an entitled sociopath."

When #AmyKlobuchar wanted to eat her salad with a fork instead of a comb, there were a bazillion articles about how monstrous that was.

But in Bernie's office....

Last week, I did a thread on the article by Vermont journalist Paul Heintz about how Sanders has refused to speak to the press in VT for years and doesn't hold press conferences.
He also holds grudges against reporters.

As documented by @TheAtlantic's always-excellent @JamesFallows, one of the underappreciated factors in 2016 election is the failure of #journalism to do its job (one Jim story-- he has many others).
...My thoughts on how to prevent repeat in 2020: <thread>
theatlantic.com/notes/2017/09/…
In 2016, MSM obsessively covered @HillaryClinton emails, while ignoring the far-more-important story of #FBI investigation of the Trump campaign. This failure had a major impact on the election's outcome. My analysis is shaped by experience in both in #journalism and politics:
We're seeing exactly the same dynamic in the 2020 campaign that we saw in 2016: MSM is focusing on horserace issues & GOP talking points, rather than delving into SUBSTANTIVE differences between the candidates. This could determine outcome of Dem primaries-- & general election.
