Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Sun May 12, 2019, 01:16 PM

 

Can we stop falling for misleading, inflammatory media spin against our candidates?

There's no Biden/Ukraine scandal nor did he cross a picket line.
Harris didn't put marginalized parents in jail over their children's truancy.
Warren is completely likable, as evidenced by live crowds' reaction to her.
O'Rourke has substantive policy ideas.
Buttigieg didn't say that peoples' identities don't matter or that they don't have a huge impact on their lived experiences.

1. This post reminds me of a twitter "thread" I saw yesterday by a US Marine (Beto O'Rourke specific)

6. You're welcome...

 

It's very frustrating as a Beto supporter because the majority of the media reports on him are so bogus it's not even funny, lol. I'm glad he's going to be on Maddow tomorrow night and The View on Tuesday. Then the HBO documentary on May 28th should help clear up a lot of the misconceptions about him. He really is an incredible candidate. I'm sure supporters of other candidates can relate when they get bogus coverage, too.

19. Absolutely!

 

I swear, they smell blood with a certain narrative, and they want their story to crest the wave when the narrative goes viral. They hear a buzzword and none of the context around it. Today it was blah blah blah blah IDENTITY POLITICS oh my god, Pete said IDENTITY POLITICS. I worry that the narrative about Buttigieg is solidifying before most voters have heard him for themselves, and at that point it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy.

And yes, they've been awful to Beto, too. I'm looking forward to watching him on Maddow. I've heard campaign clips but haven't heard him interviewed before.

18. You're welcome...it's really sad how accurate that is, lol

 

But I still have confidence he's going to be the nominee. Not only can he win...he can do it by campaigning on progressive policies because he is brilliant at explaining what is appealing about them.

3. None of it's true. Mass public eats up sound bites.

 

🤷🏼‍♀️

Joe will survive this

Pete will as well.

Beto won’t be President this time.

But they all have a huge future ahead of them or the right wouldn’t be attacking them.

Lot of the smears backfire anyway.

One of the comforts of early candidate choice is I don’t have to pay any attention to most of it.

7. It's a good question. CAN the American people stop falling for this "divide and conquer" media spin?

 

I am not sure that we can.

8. not using those headers on threads would help.

 

using the op headline is only a requirement in lbn.
we dont need to do that here. subject line could just as easily be-
more bullshit coverage of ______________________.
