In NH today, @BernieSanders sounds a lot like @realDonaldTrump as he trashes Amazon: “I talk about that all of the time and then I wonder why the Washington Post, which is owned by Jeff Bezos, who owns Amazon, doesn't write particularly good articles about me I don't know why.”

THEY SAID THEY LOVED HIM FOR HIS VAST POLICY PROPOSALS, BUT NOW THEY ARE MOCKING HIS SAGGING POLLS!
.@PostBaron responds to absurd attack: “Sen. Sanders is a member of a large club of politicians—of every ideology—who complain about their coverage….Contrary to the conspiracy theory the senator seems to favor, Jeff Bezos allows our newsroom to operate with full independence.” https://t.co/fAF5piqQ4r

Newspapers are in the business of reporting news, something new since yesterday. When Bernie gives a speech and says basically the same thing he said last night, the same thing he said last month, the same thing he said in 2016, there's no news.

We've been tracking press coverage all primary long and Sanders has consistently been at or near the top of the field in terms of the volume of news coverage he's received: https://t.co/BDoiWOjwJs https://t.co/2xzDPHfPxf

A week or so ago I posted an (unpaid) Op-Ed in the Washington Post which was fairly favorable to @KamalaHarris. It was attacked by some Bernie supporters as being a hit piece by Jeff Bezos. https://t.co/OfZ5PTC8Ym

On call with reporters for the Sanders campaign, co-chair Nina Turner said just now Sanders drew the largest crowd at the Iowa State Fair, noting this as a demonstration of his strength.
He didn't. Warren had a visibly larger crowd.

Seems the BernieStans are consoling each other by shares of his prowess around the digital campfires, and the mockery thereof has been fierce…

#MyBernieStory During the 2016 presidential campaign, I wrote a silly column gently poking fun at Bernie Sanders. It led to more death threats that I’ve ever received, and one particularly hideous email wishing death on me and my family. ??

In 2006, Bernie "voted in the House with hard-line Republicans for indefinite detention for undocumented immigrants, and then he sided with those Republicans to stand with vigilantes known as Minutemen who were taking up outposts along the border to hunt down immigrants." – HRC

The only reason Sanders keeps winning in his tiny white state w/ cheap media markets is his sugar daddy’s Ben & Jerry keep him flushed with money. You know, the Ben and Jerry who fought against an union: Maybe Warren should get union busting sugar daddies https://t.co/bgxdTj60F8

I remember when Hillary Clinton was on the heels of being the FIRST woman President of the United States, after 227 years of only electing men- 44 in a row. And women weren’t even allowed to be excited bc the angry white men on the left harassed us into silence. #MyBernieStory
