Should never have been allowed to let corporations buy news outfits.
They can't survive otherwise

Just heard today that the Miami Herald, who was BIG in getting Epstein finally arrested, has just filed for bankruptcy.

Too many people nowadays are getting their "news" from Facebook and Twitter

That's why I have subscriptions to about 5 different sources. I prefer to read them, then something unvetted on Facebook for example.

I don't think you understand again

Sanders is now acting like Trump.

From the link


Sanders’ reversal on health records—in the fall he pledged he would “certainly” release “comprehensive” health information before votes were cast—is notable in at least three respects. One, it shows how pervasive the Trump precedent is. Even politicians who stand against him on every issue, and who speak solemnly about the need to restore norms shattered during this presidency, are ready to follow trails he has blazed in taking flight from public accountability.


When I mention editors of an earlier generation who used their agenda-setting power on behalf the public interest, I am thinking of people like Robert G. Kaiser, who started at the Washington Post in 1963 and, for much of the 1990s—a long time ago, in media terms—was its managing editor. He is just a year younger than Sanders and said he was taken aback by his renege on health records. (Sanders told Todd once he begins releasing medical records “it never ends.”)

“What are the chances that what he is hiding shows him to be unusually healthy and ready to go four or eight years at top speed? “ Kaiser asked. “I'd say, in logic, they are zero. He's holding stuff back because it will cause him political problems—isn't that by far the safest presumption? The most logical?”

He agrees that institutional media power has been diminished but cautions against “exaggerating our power in the ‘good old days.’" But, he said, there is no doubt the Trump precedent is spreading: “To a much greater extent than I would like, he has changed the standards of the culture — very much for the worse.”

In other words, Trump has managed to hide things over and over. Things that the public should know about. And that is dangerous. Say Sanders wins, then goes on to hide everything. I suspect you would NOT be happy with that.

Acting like Trump? Thats a huge leap, in fact its true hyperbole. I do think his health is good enough to be campaigning and he is still around from last election when people said he was too old or sick....its a silly issue and his personal health IS his business and I think the fact that he can rigorously campaign AGAIN after the last round is enough.....to say this means he is acting like Trump is silly....I bet Trump talked about the weather once and so did Bernie, it must mean he is acting just like Trump!

He is 78 years old and just had a heart attack - and he won't even disclose a "generalized" health report?

That sounds pretty sketchy to me. Like the sketchy doctor who did Trump's "health" evaluation.

He said he would release one, and now is not

You know like Trump and his tax returns.

No, its called not playing whack a mole...lets stick to real issues. We always have old folks as president! I think calling such a thing "acting JUST LIKE TRUMP" is such an exaggeration that I suspect its an attack than dealing with actual issues. I also think his lack of worry about being called a socialist is the same.. refusing to be defensive and play whack a mole, they arent REAL issue based, they are just playing politics and thats toxic and gotten us into trouble, its time to STOP that bullshit.
