The Debate in Full:
As far as I am concerned, it is clear that the DNC has rigged the Democratic Debates in favor of Hillary Clinton.
How could the DNC rig the contest?
The best way to minimize the possibility that anyone other than Clinton will win the nomination is to insure that the other candidates do not get wide exposure.
Why would the DNC rig the contest?
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, chairwoman of the DNC, was co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the Democratic Nomination in 2008. No small part of the reason she failed was that Wasserman-Schultz secretly pledged her support for Obama once the nomination of Obama was in the bag. Thus, there is evidence of sabotage of the Clinton 2008 campaign. Therefore she is certainly capable of subterfuge.
Clinton has universal name recognition. Neither Sanders nor O’Malley have. Therefore, she has sabotaged Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley’s chances by insuring that they do not get the exposure necessary for all voters to know them and their views.
The circumstantial evidence is compelling:
In order to ensure low numbers of watchers for a debate is to schedule it on a Friday night or a Saturday night–especially opposite a big football game. The DNC certainly knows this.
The DNC has its pundits on the corporate media give Sanders and O’Malley much less exposure/mention than Clinton and they virtually always assume she will be the nominee.
As well, the corporate media has a vested interest especially in marginalizing Bernie Sanders. Sanders is intent on eliminating corporate control of Congress by campaign finance reform (publicly financed campaigns and reversing, by legislation, the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, thereby blowing up the money pipeline that runs from Wall Street to congressional pockets.
Were Sanders to be successful (and, as president, he would take the issue to the American public if Congress balks), then the corporate media would stand to lose hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign attack ads. (Now, wouldn’t that just make you cry for them?)
Therefore, the only way the public has a shot at snatching our republic from the jaws of Oligarchy/corporatocracy and bring about a virtually just social and political system in America, is for all people of integrity to network and blog Sander’s message everywhere possible. We can expect no help from the media or the DNC. We need to join the political revolution and make America feel the Bern!
