The Media Never Seems To Mention Bernie Is Not Corrupt [View all]

They completely ignore this basic fact.

No matter who it is, and what they say about Bernie's platform, supporters etc.

Why Bernie is so popular is the fact that he hasn't sold out.


Not once.

Seems to never get mentioned by the "media" who completely ignore corruption 100% of the time.

(We're so screwed)
