FEATURING JEFF COHEN – Mainstream media coverage of the Democratic National Convention has focused on the dissension within the Party but with little explanation of issues and why so many Bernie Sanders delegates are refusing to go along with the Clinton nomination. Former president Bill Clinton spoke from the floor of the convention on Tuesday night and painted a rosy picture of his wife’s policies. Most news outlets also failed to critically report on his claims.
