    It's been looking to me like the mainstream media is trying to steer the Democratic primary to Biden. Biden, of course, represents the candidate who is most conservative on his side of the aisle. He is, in fact, to the right of Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon. Naturally, the corporation-owed mainstream media loves him.

    Check out this evidence the MSM is trying to throw things Biden's way.

    spiritual anti-theist : )
    I'm fairly aligned with Warren, Sanders and AOC - does that count?

    If so, I would hazard a guess that Biden is more in the pockets of the same oligarchs that run the media than the more socialist candidates are. So the uber rich are just backing the horse they own.

    To answer your question, I think I'd have to see a breakdown: how many favorable mentions versus unfavorable.

    It seems to me that there is some amount of deliberate emphasis, of decreeing out of the blue that Biden is the favorite or main candidate from the Dems, despite no shortage of explicit alternatives - including Bernie Sanders, for one.

    At this early stage, premature, even suspect, to disregard the other contenders so uncerimoniously.

    Dems would rather lose than put someone with even a superficial anti-corporate slant into power.
