We just learned that CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta doesn’t think “neutrality for the sake of neutrality” applies under President Trump, and now we’re learning another lesson. It’s Democratic primary season, and MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace wants to hear from the candidates what they find lacking in their media coverage.
What, for example, could they do to give Beto O’Rourke a boost?

Maybe it’s us, but we don’t remember a Republican candidate ever being asked that.
Meanwhile conservatives are begging the MSM not to report FAKE quotes. But there’s no left-wing bias, nooooo. https://t.co/gOIX1Cs4Vt

Since when do news reporters ask such a question of a candidate? Appearance of impropriety? 100% YES. Beyond bias and pandering. Truly revolting.

Coverage = promotion?

Even Beto laughs at how fawning this question is.

When Beto looks taken back with surprise you've probably gone to far. LOL

Candidate O'Rourke surely replied, "Ask how high taxes must rise to cover single payer insurance for all; if open borders w/populous migration leads to our Republic's failure; if climate change science is funded by federal grants requiring a predetermined outcome." #LeftTVSucks

? Love it when they can’t help themselves, and the veil is pulled back on their sycophancy! Too funny.
