The Democrat Party, along with left-leaning mainstream media outlets, hasn’t hesitated to move against 2020 Democrats who fail to toe the line. We’ve seen this treatment happen time and time again with candidates like Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang.
On multiple occasions, various left-wing outlets have taken aim at Gabbard for censuring the flaws within the Democrat Party and going after Hillary Clinton. Aside from branding Gabbard as a “Russian asset,” the DNC recently excluded the veteran from a Democrat Election ad.
2020 candidate Andrew Yang has also experienced similar treatment. Last month, the tech entrepreneur took aim at MSNBC for failing to ask him enough questions at the fifth Democrat debate. Yang also threatened to boycott the network until they issued an apology for unfair treatment and exclusion from various on-air graphics.
However, the 2020 Democrat ended his boycott of MSNBC on Friday, per reports from Washington Examiner.
The End of the Yang-MSNBC Feud
By Yang’s own admission, he terminated his feud with MSNBC because of his belief that campaigning is “too important.” The 2020 Democrat also noted that various journalists who work for the network have attempted to contact him more than once. Yang expressed that rather than persist with his boycott, he views “[speaking] with as many Americans as possible” as a wiser call.
After thanking everyone for their “support,” the presidential candidate then expressed an interest in “[shocking] the world in 38 days” and spreading the “message” of his campaign as far as possible.
In recent weeks, Andrew Yang has given various interviews and made certain remarks which somewhat break from the general consensus of the Democrat Party.
During the sixth primary debate, Yang opined that the left must end the “obsession” with impeachment, stating that it’s actually working against the Democrat Party. Yang shared this assessment despite previously noting his personal favor of impeaching President Trump.
The Pull of Fake News
Over the course of 2019, Americans have seen that fake news is not mutually exclusive to President Trump or other members of the GOP. Time and time again, the media has shown that they have no problem going against leftists who even slightly dissent from the party.
Despite Yang’s decision to move on from his feud with MSNBC, Americans are still very much aware of fake news’ pull. This explains why trust in the press has declined so rapidly. If the media were more invested in covering current events (rather than censoring individuals who dissent from far-left talking points), they’d be much better off.
