One of the major things that got him elected, isn't it? Him being among the few who calls out the mainstream media to their on their constant BS'ing. A lot of people end up relating to what he says because it's true despite the fact that he's a fake person.
Fortunately, Bernie has been critical of the media as well and has been telling people that the media isn't discussing the issues that affect their daily lives for decades, and you can bet Americans will ditch Trump for Bernie IF they're given the chance.
Who do you consider to be "mainstream media" and on the other side "non-mainstream media"? Thanks & cheers!
A very difficult question to answer. MSM has become an overused term but I personally use it whenever journalists behave purposefully dense, or whenever a news network don't make big deals about what should be a big deal and vice versa. As for news sources, I use news aggregators and add as many news networks from different countries as possible, including French, German, Russian, Qatar, Saudi & Turkish news, and recently I have been following Chinese news as well. You get different perspectives on the same story.
You won't get the TheIntercept_ on any of the aggregators though, so that's one website I need to bookmark and follow: https://theintercept.com/about/
Apple News had a rough relationship with RT Russia,
ZeroHedge is worth a read: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/how-us-wages-war-prop-dollar, Globalresearch is another website I run into frequently: https://www.globalresearch.ca/hillary-emails-reveal-nato-killed-gaddafi-to-stop-libyan-creation-of-gold-backed-currency/5594742
There are also many independent political commentators on youtube that I follow, they highlight BS that airs on the MSM and add some valuable perspective to incomplete headlines, it's what they do for a living after all, so you can expect some political enlightenment. The downside of these youtube channels is that the commentators can be sensational. Nonetheless, here is a list if you're interested:
Secular Talk has been one of the few channels that tries to stick to logic & principles whenever he dissects any piece of news, Jimmy Dore is a bore-fest but he has his moments of brilliance, Krystal Balls from Rising/The Hill is a new fave, Dave Rubin has some really interesting guests sometimes but it's not always political, I stopped following the young turks because they disgusted me with their biased russiagate reporting. On the right side of the aisle, you have the Daily Caller, Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler, the controversial Ann Coulter, Akkad daily is rarely a good show to watch, as he's stuck in 2016 with the identity politics BS (a waste of talent, because he can formulate good arguments), Mark Steyn has some interesting guests on, Ben Shapiro might be your cup of tea. I guess if you look them up, youtube's algorithms will start juggling you between them and many more of the ones I forgot to mention. Keep in mind that I don't believe everything I read or link, I also acknowledge the fact that any of the above youtubers is capable of doing and saying unbelievably stupid things but so am I.
Not sure if any of the above answers your question
Edit: Economists are worth your time as well, check out the beautiful Micheal Hudson on youtube or read his articles: https://michael-hudson.com/2020/01/america-escalates-its-democratic-oil-war-in-the-near-east/
