Bernie has been whining a lot lately about the media not giving himself enough attention. He's correct. So whining is probably not the right word.
David Brock is the Super PAC tool who owns or started Media Matters. He was the guy behind the "Correct the Record" smear of Bernie a few months back. That thingie backfired. A lot seems to be backfiring on the coronation committee. Nate Silver describes such phenomena as negative feedback loops. Harry Enten, on the other FiveThirtyEight.com hand, says there is nothing to see there, move along to the coronation.
I have to make this quick. There's a Celtics game coming up soon and they are desperate for a win. I will jinx them if I do not watch it.
Bernie and Hillary are now big time in the news. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is getting her ass chewed out on Twitter by supertrolls, myself included.
Bernie is fighting back. There is talk of a lawsuit. Something about a security patch and some H. info getting through to a Sanders' employee. That dude got canned or maybe I don't have my facts straight.
This is being covered by folks such as CNN who usually ignore Bernie, so I see no reason why I should be expected to write much on it. This isn't some hidden story like Clinton Foundation corruption. Ugh, I also don't seem to give much DFQ2 coverage to a lot of stuff. Yet, it's not always about me. This is about Bernie and Hillary.

I'll wait for the dust to settle. My initial conclusion from a 100% zeitgeist sniffing angle is that this helps Bernie. When the media is covering mostly just Trump and the GOP circus for political coverage, that only reinforces the idea that Bernie has no chance to win the nomination.
This is also good timing. The Democratic Party debate is on tomorrow night. Even Arianna Huffington knows that bad news is good news. It's all about page clicks. Or in this instance, it's about votes.
Hillary needed to keep it kosher with Bernie. No pun was intended, but I'm not going to deny it's there whether intended or not.
She needed their relationship to remain copacetic. She needed more, "Thanks, Bernie, my friend, with the damn email support." She needs things to be under the radar. She needs the Bernie Enough is Enough movement to stay out of mainstream Amerikkkan view.
This is what's referred to as an unforced error. The Hillary people have now given Bernie an opening.
They are idiotic and that's why those kinds of fake leftists tend to dominate the numbnut demographic.
They do not know when to quit when they are ahead. Maybe they are not ahead? If the Hillary people are 20-30 points ahead, why are they acting as if Bernie has a real chance? Why would they risk alienating the progressive keyboard commando base which constitutes a big chunk of the Democratic Party's base?
This is what zeitgeist sniffing is all about. We now know that modern polling has become obsolete in regards to accuracy. They no longer work unless one shells out a lot of money and polls by the book to ensure the respondents represent a true picture of a close approximation.
If Hillary is in such fine shape, why such worry about non-viable, kook uncle in the attic Bernie Sanders? Watch some poker on t.v.. It may all seem a crap shoot and luck, but the best card players are the best zeitgeist sniffers for their sport. Is cards a sport? They show it on ESPN the sports channel. It's very confusing.
