1. Most all of our candidates have made some bad moves.

 

I take issue with any presentation that gives the appearance of being comprehensive while omitting major positive accomplishments.

3. Democracy Now has put out a number of hit pieces on Biden in the last month.

 

They completely ignore his positive accomplishments. That is why I can rightfully define them as hit pieces.

Twitter is littered with them. They're sniping at Biden even more than Trump supporters are.

9. "Who is Democracy Now?"

 





Democracy Now! is an hour-long American TV, radio and internet news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman, who also acts as the show's executive producer, and Juan González.[1] The show, which airs live each weekday at 08:00 ET, is broadcast on the internet and by over 1,400 radio and television stations worldwide.[2]

(snip)

Democracy Now Productions, the independent nonprofit organization which produces Democracy Now!, is funded entirely through contributions from listeners, viewers, and foundations such as the Ford Foundation,[not in citation given] Lannan Foundation, J.M. Kaplan Fund,[4][5][6][unreliable source?] and does not accept advertisers, corporate underwriting or government funding.[7]

(snip)

Democracy Now! and its staff have received several journalism awards, including the Gracie Award from American Women in Radio & Television;[24] the George Polk Award for its 1998 radio documentary Drilling and Killing: Chevron and Nigeria's Oil Dictatorship, on the Chevron Corporation and the deaths of two Nigerian villagers protesting an oil spill;[25] and Goodman with Allan Nairn won Robert F. Kennedy Memorial's First Prize in International Radio for their 1993 report, Massacre: The Story of East Timor which involved first-hand coverage of genocide during the Indonesian occupation of East Timor.[26]

On October 1, 2008, Goodman was named as a recipient of the 2008 Right Livelihood Award,[27] in connection with her years of work establishing Democracy Now! and in 2009, she, like her frequent guest Glenn Greenwald, was awarded the first annual Izzy Award (named after journalist I. F. "Izzy" Stone) for "special achievement in independent media."[28] Her co-host Juan Gonzalez was inducted into the New York chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists' Hall of Fame on November 19, 2015.[29][30]

But I appreciate your posting the link. I see the link between it and Glenn Greenwald, too. How interesting. Are you a fan of Glenn Greenwald?

12. Will get truly ugly

 

Disinformation and smear campaign going to ramp way up. Expect more YouTube mashups, more insistence that Biden exercises a touching fetish onstage with women and children, posters accusing him of “unforgivable acts towards children” in front of their families, filmed for posterity, and I do not put it past conservatives to do a false-flag whereby they infiltrate or front a progressive group and put up a compelling “story” about “creepy Uncle Joe” to jive with the misogynistic molesting Biden meme already in play.

32. Unfortunately

 

it has only just begun, but fortunately, Joe has been through it before, so he is undoubtedly prepared. However, as a long time Biden supporter, I have a bad habit of taking it personally on his behalf. I am determined to tune it out this time, it is emotionally exhausting!

16. It won't help...the more you all and your friends attack the more determined I am.

 

Sanders has a record too. Did you know he voted for the crime bill and against Russian sanctions ( or wasn't there for the vote) numerous times. He also voted against the immigration bill and don't get me started on his mixed record on LGBTQ. Maybe we should hang out in this decade and century.

33. Definitely agree

 

It would be best if we hung out in "this decade and century". The longer someone has been politics, the more baggage he/she accumulates. There is always a bigger story behind every vote.

Joe brings a wealth of valuable experience with him, it is inevitable that there would be some baggage mixed in as well.

22. This is the show that used ex-Bush military guys to rip the Obama administration.

 

They LOVED Glenn Greenwald and his hater pals, like uber-nitwit Jeremy Scahil, who used to get on every day to "report" that Barack Obama was a bigger menace to the world than Bush-Cheney because drones.



They also loved Edward Snowden, Chris Hedges, Noam Chomsky and every other righteous nutjob.
