Last edited Wed Aug 12, 2015, 02:58 PM - Edit history (2)

Lots more in my newsfeed from a wide variety of MSM sources... I may add others to this OP shortly by edit.
Reactions vary a lot it seems, but at least this news is being covered in the land where cords have not yet been cut.

1. The associated meme they were pushing on MSNBC was that NH votes for Bernie were 'protest votes'

because even though more NH folks were backing Bernie now, many still expected Hillary to eventually win the nomination.

Thinking back to 2008, I remember expecting Obama to lose but still voting for him. I never considered my vote a 'protest' vote, though. Just a hopeful one, even as I expected worse.

10. I noticed that too

 

Every anchor and guest led with "protest vote".

We have a career statesman on one side, and three fucking clowns a top the other side, yet the statesman's support is due to protest/unrest.

Fuck them.

6. I was amazed the one commentator saying "Bernie's had NO controversy so far"

 

and they've stopped replaying endlessly that clip of BLM shouting down Sanders
in Seattle.

Have we turned a corner here?

7. I caught that.

Amazing is one way to put it, lol.

Still, overall, it was reasonably positive.

5. Kind of irresponsible to be making hay out of a poll that could be an outlier, considering the

polling firm only has a poor track record (C- rating) and the results have yet to be replicated in other polls of NH. Also the poll was conducted for a right-leaning NH newspaper.

9. NH is tailor made for Sanders.

 

A strong place for him. While I understand this is a first, the trend has been apparent and he is going to get there in NH. I wouldn't just discount this poll. I said early on with Sanders, this is his path. If he does well in the debates, and continues momentum, watch out in Iowa and NH. Momentum means a lot. We know he isn't going to fair well in many states. Some states can flip for him if he has a strong showing early.

12. It is consistent with the trend. Go Bernie.

 

Hillary is sinking, thank goodness. As her lies are exposed, she'll fall more.

14. Wow! Every single clip is positive for Bernie.

Sure, they report Team Clinton's spin, but only perfunctorily.

15. one more - With All Due Respect

I add one last clip here from today's daily Bloomberg Politics show "With All Due Respect":


Bloomberg TV is a mainstream cable news channel for some folks (mostly business news/analysis) but their political commentators Heilemann & Halperin are frequent guests on all the MSM political shows on the other networks also. This youtube video is the entire WADR show for today (8/12/15), but John and Mark spend the first 5min discussing Hillary and Bernie... including their take on the new NH poll.
