Bernie Sanders 'censored' by MSNBC while criticizing trade deal


US broadcaster MSNBC is facing criticism for cutting away from live coverage of a Sanders press conference, just as he was condemning the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.

Media critics point out that the network's owner Comcast stands to benefit greatly from the trade deal - and has largely been silencing any negative coverage.

You've been listening to Bernie Sanders, less of a press conference, more of a speech," opined host Kate Snow. "I want to turn back to the Republican side of things."

Mainstream media outlets have been slammed for over-covering Republican candidates and Hillary Clinton as compared to Sanders.

Viewers took to social media to say they felt the break in coverage was because MSNBC's owner Comcast does not want to air opposing remarks about the controversial agreement, with some branding the cutaway as censorship.
