From The Intercept, “Bernie Sanders Spoke Up for Suffering Palestinians, but Few in Broadcast Media Covered It”:
Sanders did get a chance to expand on his views on the issue during a sit-down interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and a CNN town hall. In both cases, the topic was discussed only briefly. “Overwhelmingly, the United States has time and time again looked aside when Israel has done some bad things,” he said during a two-minute segment with Anderson Cooper. https://theintercept.com/2016/03/22/bernie-sanders-spoke-up-for-suffering-palestinians-but-few-in-broadcast-media-covered-it/
The only reason Bernie Sanders gets away with being even slightly sympathetic to the Palestinians is that he is not begging for AIPAC money, unlike Hillary and the rest of the Republicans. There are very few Zionist Jewish voters; the huge, disproportionate power of Zionists over our government and media is based on the power that comes from enormous wealth.
