Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been struggling with a media blackout throughout the campaign – and even during those rare moments when he is covered, he’s still being censored.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.
