The media really hates Tulsi Gabbard

In case you missed it, US House Rep. Tulsi Gabbard announced Saturday that she will be seeking the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination.  Even before the official announcement, the media was attacking her.

One attack?  The lie that Russia's working to get Tulsi elected.

  1. And of course the point of these tawdry smear pieces isn’t to take down Tulsi (she’s not even really campaigning) it’s to send a message to Sanders and Warren that if they don’t take the Correct Line on Russia, perma-war in Syria etc they’ll suffer the same sleazy innuendo.
  2.   Retweeted
    Holy shit, this NBC piece actually cites New Knowledge—who were just busted by NYTimes planting fake Russian bots on behalf of Democratic Party operatives—as experts who caught Russian bots working for Tulsi. These sleazebags aren’t even trying

  1. This NBC News report is a total disgrace from top to bottom. It's a joke using the most minimal journalistic standards. But that's because NBC is in partnership with the Democratic Party (and intel community) to smear any Dem adversary, on the left or right, as a Kremlin tool:
  2. "What’s particularly unethical about the NBC report is it touts New Knowledge as “the company the Senate used to track Russian activities in the 2016 election,” while concealing the fraud that this firm’s CEO just got caught perpetrating on behalf of the Democratic Party"
  3. NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party

MSNBC John Harwood's leading the charge that Tulsi is the only Democratic Party candidate who doesn't stand "a realistic shot."

  1. John Harwood on MSNBC this morning: "Anybody of these candidates, except maybe Tulsi Gabbard, you can see a realistic shot for them breaking through." Glad he decreed that ahead of time, before voters have a say. Media consensus is so blatantly dismissive of Tulsi, it's amazing
  2. Just seen John Harwood on MSNBC saying 2020 was an open eace with everyone in with a chance - except Tulsi Gabbard! Liberals just can't hide their resentment for a progressive candidate

And the print media -- such as it is -- joins in the attacks.

BREAKING NEWS: launched their 2nd hit piece . Vanity Fair smeared a Veteran because she refused to rely on rumors about Syria so she actually went to Syria to investigate for herself. It's insanity. It's 2016 all over again only worse.

The media attacks on Tulsi should be a sign and indicator of just how much power and change a President Tulsi Gabbard could deliver.

  1. As commander-in-chief, I will work to end the new cold war, nuclear arms race and slide into nuclear war. That is why the neocon/neolib warmongers will do anything to stop me.
