Bernie Sanders Receives Media Respect

Bernie Sanders is getting more positive attention than most people expected. For example, when he first announced his run for president, TYT rather dissed his effort. Now they are covering the Sanders campaign with respect.

“When it comes to filling a venue, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is not exactly 2016’s underdog.

Sanders, who is running as a progressive alternative to presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, spoke Wednesday at Madison’s Alliant Energy Center, which seats 10,231 people. The campaign had expected a massive turnout in the left-leaning city, which has deep roots in progressive politics and activism. Their prediction was correct: Arena staff said 9,600 people were in attendance.

“Tonight, we have more people at any meeting for a candidate of president of the United States than any other candidate,” Sanders said, according to the Associated Press, who put the turnout at 10,000.”

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
