Adam Johnson, a contributing writer for Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), joins the show to talk about media bias against Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. We highlight how the three cable news networks refused to air Sanders' speech after last week's primaries. We talk about the rapid response teams at Hillary Clinton's network of super PACs, which feed talking points and "off the record" tips to media organizations. Johnson also addresses the media's Donald Trump obsession and how Trump understands how to work the media so any and all coverage, negative or positive, benefits him.
