Sanders Not Surprised ‘Media Establishment’ Backing Clinton
Bernie Sanders talked about the media’s bias for Hillary Clinton when discussing the Des Moines Register‘s recent endorsement of Clinton.
“We are taking on the economic establishment, we’re taking on the political establishment and, with all due respect, we are taking on the media establishment,” Sanders said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I expect that Secretary Clinton will get a lot of the endorsements from mainstream media, but I have the endorsement – and I’m very proud to say – of 2.5 million individual contributions to my campaign,” he added.

Sanders also said he disagreed with the Register’s reasoning that Clinton is the most qualified candidate in terms of foreign policy experience, pointing to her vote for the war in Iraq as a senator.
“When we talk about foreign policy, let us be very clear – one of the candidates running voted against the disastrous war in Iraq,” he said.
“What I feared would happen –and it gives me no pleasure to tell you that much of what I feared would happen in terms of the destabilization of the region did in fact happen,” he added. “And Hillary Clinton voted the other way.”
