In this video, “Democracy Now!” host Amy Goodman discusses the U.S. media obsession with polls and why we should focus on candidates’ records instead.

Appearing Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Goodman said, “… it is astounding that Bernie Sanders is where he is today. Look at that Tyndall Center report that found in 2015, in the months leading up to December, you had 234 total network minutes, like almost four hours, CBS, NBC, ABC, covering Trump. That’s four hours and how much got coverage? Sanders got 10 minutes. On ‘ABC World News Tonight’ in that year, Sanders got 20 seconds. Trump got like 81 minutes.”
