TV Broadcaster’s Union Endorses Socialist Bernie Sanders For President (VIDEO)
In recent years the American people have begun to believe that those who work in the mainstream media lean left politically. Frankly, hard left. As a matter-of-fact so hard left that many of us just assumed most of those in the mainstream media are outright Communists. Well if a recent union presidential endorsement is any indication, the American people are more right, than wrong.
The Communications Workers of America (CWA) consists of a dozen or so unions from several diverse professions. The most eyebrow raising being The National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians (NABET-CWA). The NABET-CWA represents most everyone in the Broadcast industry from all the major networks: NBC, ABC, and Fox, among others. From anchors and writers, to producers and directors, even the news station’s truck drivers, everyone falls under the umbrella of the NABET-CWA. And according to the NABET-CWA they all were allowed to vote in the CWA Presidential Poll in order to help the union to decide which candidate to support. The results are disturbing.
Last Friday CWA President Chris Shelton announced that after tallying the results of their member poll the union is endorsing Socialist Bernie Sanders for President:
“CWA members have made a clear choice and a bold stand in endorsing Bernie Sanders for President,” said CWA President Chris Shelton. “I am proud of our democratic process, proud of CWA members, and proud to support the candidate whose vision for America puts working families first. Our politics and economy have favored Wall Street, the wealthy and powerful for too long. CWA members, like voters across America, are saying we can no longer afford business as usual. Bernie has called for a political revolution – and that is just what Americans need today.”
After the announcement, while CWA members chanted “Bernie, Bernie!”, Senator Sanders took to the podium to say that he is proud of the CWA endorsement and that he looks forward to working with the CWA to create a “political revolution” in the United States.
While the News Guild, which represents print journalists, is also a member of the CWA the Guild did not take part in the CWA poll. The Guild has a standing mandate to abstain from endorsing political candidates in an effort to keep their “objectivity”.
So remember, as you watch your favorite mainstream news broadcaster on television tonight rest assured that what was once considered paranoia, is now proven to be true. Those who spoon feed you the news everyday are at best Socialists, and at worst Communists, but in the end they are really just…un-American.
