Democrats don’t need to “come up with a message for rural America,” they need to *listen* to rural Americans.

Corporate Democrats don’t listen to the people, because doing so would conflict with the needs of their donors. They don’t “need a message for rural America,” they need to listen to rural America! Doing so would make that message blazingly obvious.

Hence the success of TYT Politics, Unicorn Riot, We Are the Media, and my own Citizens’ Media TV.

We are the only ones, despite being invited in because of our press credentials, who spend three hours in the freezing rain, listening to the suffering of those shut out of a supposed public meeting for comment of a natural gas pipeline. Suffering with them. We are the only ones who thoroughly cover the DNC from the perspective of Bernie Delegates and the humiliation and suppression they (I!) had to endure. TYT Politics’ Jordan Chariton is now out at Standing Rock for the sixth time and, thanks to a tip from a TYT viewer, broke and still covers the Indiana lead crisis. We are the Media just got some footage and now NBC wants it. They responded with, “No. If you cared enough you would have showed up.” Unicorn Riot talks to those divesting from DAPL banks.

You can’t know what people want if you don’t talk to people. And not talking to people show exactly what you care about.

They have access, money, and power. We have the truth.
