I wrote about CNN and MSNBC relying on "Republican strategists" to comment on the largest climate bill ever proposed without disclosing that their PR firms represent a who's who of oil and coal corporations and carbon-emitter lobbying front groups. thecolumn.substack.com/p/cnn…

Good on @RoKhanna for pointing out Sinema voted against the Trump tax law that set rates where they are now. She also campaigned against them in 2018. Watch this campaign ad
Some fresh deets on Sinema and taxes: Biden + Schumer have known about her position on taxes since early Aug, per her team. Yet she and @ewarren (!) are now discussing plans to impose mark to market (billionaires’ tax) and 15 percent corporate minimum rate washingtonpost.com/politics/…

If you’ve been wondering why Manchin and Sinema oppose adding dental, vision, and hearing benefits to Medicare, turns out it could slightly trim their health insurance donors’ Medicare Advantage jackpot. Here’s your explainer from @jul1arock @dailyposter dailyposter.com/insurers-fig…

"Manchin is not just an ardent coal supporter — he is a literal coal baron. He makes more money every year from his family’s coal brokerage ... than he does as a U.S. senator. Punchbowl did not mention Manchin’s coal interests ..." via @dailyposter dailyposter.com/all-the-news…

Neera Tanden's job over the last several months has been building support for Biden's domestic policy agenda and specifically his budget and infrastructure plans. Since that has been such a huge success, she now has a second job. theap.substack.com/p/what-do…

Film clearly shows linebacker handing over a few hundred thousand dollars in exchange for the ball, NYT correspondent only sees a fumble.
How did you manage to write this story about Scott Peters and Kurt Schrader's opposition to Medicare negotiating drug prices without mentioning their massive pharma campaign cash hauls? It's honestly quite an achievement.

I am still marveling at this shit. So many journalists' outright refusal to cover the money is a good part of why we have so much original content at @dailyposter, but it's a shame that papers with huge circulation misinform their readers this way.

Sinema voted against the 2017 Trump tax law and campaigned against it in 2018. These facts have been systematically memory-holed by the media as they furiously report about how raising taxes at all is now a red line for her
NEWS: @kyrstensinema is blocking Dems' plan to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations, after voting no on the Trump tax law and slamming Trump's "huge tax breaks for the wealthy and large corporations" in a 2018 campaign ad dailyposter.com/kyrsten-sine…

The Democrats going along with this bullshit are doing so because they do not want to raise taxes on the wealthy either and would rather not have to say it

Sinema voted against the Trump tax cuts for the rich, then aired this Senate campaign ad against those tax cuts
The Daily Poster
Biden says Sinema is “very supportive” of family care, his environmental agenda. BUT “she says she will not raise a single penny of taxes on the corporate side and/or on wealthy people. Period. That’s where it sort of breaks down,” he says on CNN. Says they are down 4-5 issues

Rep. Scott Peters is the U.S. House's #1 recipient of pharma cash: dailyposter.com/follow-the-p… Any corporate media outlet writing about Peters' health care votes without mentioning this fact is deliberately trying to mislead you. Just remember that.
Here’s the @nytimes letting a pharma-funded congressman say he’s not taking “the easy political route” blocking lower drug prices, weeks after he said he couldn’t stop taking pharma money because it would “defund my campaign”

The congressman is literally the #1 recipient of pharma campaign cash in the entire U.S. House, but apparently this fact cannot be mentioned in corporate media.
