CNN, MSNBC BLACKOUT ON BETO O'ROURKE'S EL PASO SPEECH

The entrenched Democratic Party forces (read: Biden/Clinton/Obama) are firmly in control of the cable news Presidential campaign coverage

CNN and MSNBC both spent days hyping the "duelling" rallies in El Paso, Texas. Trump and Beto O'Rourke with competing gatherings at the same time. Guaranteed to be a must watch! But when the big moment arrived for this championship bout both networks suddenly got cold feet. MSNBC covered some of the march- marches are always good television fare. People watching from the comfort of your living room. But when O'Rourke began his speech, the anchor talked over all of it and then as an afterthought began a few seconds of actual live audio from the stage but quickly returned to some boring commentary. CNN was even worse. Democratic Party media puppet Chris Cuomo was, at that very moment, interviewing not Beto O'Rourke, but Julian Castro. Castro of course is the spoiler Presidential candidate the Dems are backing in his home turf of San Antonio, Texas in order to derail O'Rourke's huge following. Beto gives the fossilized Dems the heebie-jeebies. His grass roots populist appeal is in a long tradition of Texas political mavericks that emerged from nowhere that shook the system. Cuomo's inexcusable decision to place this party hack in a position of "representing" the progressive side of longhorn politics during the very moment of O'Rourke's incredibly huge moment of total opposition to everything Trump and the GOP stand for is incredibly underhanded. Neither one even mentioned Beto at all, much less allow America to actually hear for themselves what he had to say. A total blackout. If the MSM knew O'Rourke was going to officially announce his running for President they would have covered it more. That's real news. To the MSM, what 's on the candidate's mind is irrelevant. During the 2016 campaign, CNN ran every single ugly Trump/MAGA rally live from beginning to end. When Trump farted it was always "breaking news". These idiots want Joe Biden to be the candidate. All these newcomers are just window dressing. The NWO always wins in the end..
