CNN: Don’t Leave Me Yanging!
Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang is pissed, and it appears he has a case. CNN aired a graphic Thursday night that didn’t list Yang when discussing primary candidates’ standings in a recent poll. Yang’s 3% has qualified him for the next national debate, and wonders why CNN would do him like this.
“I’ll admit I’ve never been a politician before, but the treatment of our rising national poll results has been odd and confusing. The trend of this campaign is already very positive — think where we could be if we received the same level of coverage as folks like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Joe Biden,” Yang said to his supporters in an email yesterday.
Yang along with nine others, qualified to take the stage in next month’s third Democratic debate, having reached the threshold of 130,000 individual donors and at least 2 percent in four of the DNC-approved polls.
