If Donald Trump makes a statement about something that is clearly and demonstrably at odds with the facts, do you think the media will wait even five seconds to tell you about it? Or Ted Cruz for that matter?
But when Bernie Sanders goes around railing on corporations for “not paying their fair share” or “not helping America,” when was the last time you saw a news report delving into the numbers to determine if his bluster was actually true? You won’t. So it’s left to CEOs themselves to publicly correct the record. You want to know one of the reasons the dinosaur media types don’t like social media? It’s because they people they ignore in their coverage now have a platform to talk to you without going through the dinosaurs, and they don’t like it one bit.
