What? Bernie says he will not raise money for Hillary? He will continue his Independent movement?

Just heard this on MSNBC. WTF?

I am glad he raised the acclimation but are we going to be in for more of the bs through the entire GE??

started. Maybe they can have a few more photoshoots of Jill Stein, or search for that 1 or 2 supposed Sanders' supporters who say they won't vote for Hillary.

Screw MSNBS, and the MSM

Too bad for them that at the end of this Convention, the Democratic party will be unified

The media is all about attacking Clinton. No matter what BS they have to shove at us.

Evidently the problem is MSNBC. I have been watching CNN where the coverage of the convention has be very positive especially after last night. The normal Republican commentators are almost apologizing for saying something negative. (That was kind of funny.) Early in the first day they were playing up the rebellious Sanders' delegate angle, but that emphasis by CNN dropped off dramatically after the situation started to stabilize.

I don't watch MSNBC so I am not qualified to comment, but it seems like their emphasis on trying to find disunity in the convention may be motivated by their desire to pacify their hard left viewers, an important part of their market, whereas CNN doesn't feel the need to do that. Those people are really not part of their market.

I would be interested in the views of more knowledgeable people on this subject.

to stay involved, to run for local and state offices. To vote in the mid terms. That will be an indication that his revolution has legs and wasn't just a flash in the pan.

MSRNC is rapidly going to the dogs - and its going on my "do not watch" list - but let's face it. Sen. Sanders has no long term interest in the Democratic Party. He will run for re-election as an Independent, and he truly believes he has a "movement" wait for him to lead.

I welcome his help electing Sec. Clinton but it seems to me he is mostly interested in feathering his own nest.
