Stacking the deck for tonight's debate

We know where the DNC stands in this race. They will do anything they can to put their thumb on the scale, or to stand on it if needed.

The debate is hosted by Univision. Univision is owned by the largest campaign contributor to Bill and Hillary Clinton over their political careers.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/clinton-money/

<The couple’s biggest individual political benefactors are Univision chairman Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl, who have made 39 contributions totaling $2.4 million to support the Clintons’ races since 1992. The Sabans have also donated at least $10 million to the foundation.>

One of the moderators of tonight's debate is Jorge Ramos. His daughter works for Hillary Clinton's campaign.

http://fusion.net/story/153677/a-note-from-jorge-ramos/

<As journalists the most important thing we have is our credibility and integrity. We maintain that, in part, through transparency with our audience, our colleagues and our critics. That is why I am disclosing that my daughter, Paola, has accepted a position working with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.>


This garbage is really getting old.

there is no media that is not corporate controlled. We know who corporations donate to.

36. What was "good" about it?

Consolidating our (at one time diverse) Media into the hands of a few Billionaires
is NOT a good thing IMO.
That brought us Rush Limbaugh and Clear Channel, canned vanilla music with no local reporting.

to beat the other team AND the referees but it can be done. Thanks for posting this. We can add it to the ever growing list of 'news' organizations that are NOT.

8. Bernie handled Mr. Ramos just fine the last time he was on Univision.

 

Ramos tried to get up in his grille and Sanders allowed him to make a fool of himself. Expect the same tonight.

22. I suspect he knew.

I suspect he didn't really care. His message will continue to resonate with the masses because he tells the truth and is fighting for things that almost all of us want. Sanders has a great deal of courage, that kind of shit is never going to stop him.

11. thanks for the enlightenment

I am so grateful I have found democratic underground. Unfortunately, I can believe all this garbage that we dig up. We no longer live in a democracy. Everything is controlled by money and power. And, in the democratic party I question why we even have primaries if the SUPER delegates can do whatever they want. As a young adult my father would try to tell me this was the way of the world, but my starry-eyed youth refused to believe. I do now, but glad my Dad is no longer here to have to watch what is going on.

Happy to have you here.

20. They are being tough but fair to both candidates so far. The audience seems pretty balanced.

I was impressed that Jorge Ramos made a point of disclosing that his daughter works for Hillary Clinton's campaign at the beginning of the questioning. It was a higher standard of disclosure than I usually see in political discussions on the cable networks.

At times they're cutting off the candidates when they have barely had time to start speaking.

16. It as if there isn't an honest person left in this election but BS.

It's all a big conspiracy to keep your guy down. Do you realize how really childish this sounds. Let the candidates either stand or fall on their own. Truth is truth whether you like what side it falls on.

17. Love the way you frame this. "... to keep your guy down." There's a straw man in there somewhere.

 

It's not a conspiracy to keep "my guy down". It's a fucking gaming of the system to get "your girl in."

Forgive my metaphor but it's at a colon-blow point.

This race has been so stacked against Bernie and I'm mad as hell about it.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

the candidates dodge.

So far so good, IMO.

I think Hillary's people should tell her that laughing at those issues doesn't help.

33. that's really pretty disgraceful

I admit, if they were on Bernie's side I'd be happy that all that money and influence were going his way. But it would still be wrong for the broadcast not to acknowledge all of that straight up front.
