Bernie Sanders And Republicans Have This In Common
Republicans and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders share this criticism ... as do the majority of Americans.By Kate Grumke | December 25, 2015
Criticizing the media is becoming a bipartisan pastime. Bernie Sanders said this about political coverage this campaign.
"I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart," Sanders said. "He knows that media is not so interested in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks."
Sen. Bernie Sanders cited a report that analyzed every nightly newscast from NBC, ABC and CBS. It found Donald Trump has received 234 minutes of coverage. The next closest candidate was Hillary Clinton with 113 minutes. Sanders didn't even come in second for Democrats; that went to Joe Biden, who's not a candidate, with 56 minutes. Sanders has received 10 minutes. And Ted Cruz, who is currently polling second in the GOP, has received even less time than Sanders.
