Sound like a bunch clowns try mounting a donkey. A lot of noises and ##just that
Some more, somewhere
If they do such a crap job answering the first question of the show, when recent events offer EASY INSIGHT to begin the discussion, WhY Should that Company's Polls Be Considered Accurate? Isn't that what POLLING is about? Recent Opinion?
Some more, somewhere
This is so damned depressing. It's so painfully obvious, that these hosts are avoiding Yang as a topic. The skirt around the question of media coverage on POC candidates, totally ignores RECENT events. This is Asinine, biased and guarantees reputation damage among aware audience members. I was a prospective target audience hoping to hear quality content, now I'm certain not to regard anything sourced from this podcast as legitimate or accurate. I listen to CNN and FOX just to contrast their news segments, and this is the same kind of dishonesty I find on those stations.

What unique obstacles do candidates of color face in the media coverage? Hmm, they get completely ignored from coverage even when the topic is about people of color. How has @fivethirtyeight played into those blind spots and how can these problems be mitigated in the future? What blindspots? We dont see our blind spots...... or Asians. The use of the word novelty to describe POC in politics is fitting for this panel. This is why diversity is important. Otherwise you have an embarrassing response to a good question like this.

How fucking cringe is this podcast? Talk about wrong doings in the DNC and the media and you completly dodge Yang? Is this intentional or are you just ignorant? I persoanlly dont know which is worse as this is your fucking job and to be this ignorant on something thats so blatant and front and center. On the other hand being a paid shill is just as gross but LESS surprising as its the status quo. Serious question, what is wrong with you people? "Data driven news" LuL.

Explain to your viewers why no mention of Andrew Yang AT ALL, he is the only POC on the last debate stage. Can anyone trust you guys can be objective on anything even fact are right on your face when you watch the debate? Everyone saw the fact except you guys. You guys should feel ashamed even mention the word "Data". Your nose should grow an inch longer whenever "Data: or "Analysis" coming from your mouth. Shame on 538!!!

I used to love FiveThirtyEight and I used to nerd out about every podcast and read every article. But for Five Thirty Eight to completely ignore Andrew Yang's historic and inspiring insurgent candidacy is highly disappointing. The data shows that Andrew Yang is the person most likely to beat Donald Trump. medium.com/@benamy.yashar/a-data-scientists-take-on-electability-and-the-democratic-candidates-77426ea3f97? As a person of color, I feel personally attacked. I've deleted and unsubscribed from FiveThirtyEight and I'm happier for it.

538 straight BIAS you totally ignore the facts that Yang has been completely ignored by the media even though he has surpassed seating senators and Mayors during this campaign. You are a bunch of "Basuras"!

If you recognize the lack of diversity why aren't yall the leaders to change that instead stay the same amount %70 . Like everyone else (supposedly) besides this cast Is all white. This already naturally skewed to one opinion... maybe have someone of color on your panel. Why yall team is not 70/30 ratio?

Donald Glover/Childish Gambinbo endorsed Andrew Yang. Let me sum this video up for you in one song. Childish Gambino-This is America
W. R. Hale, Information Engineer
Intersectionality: Definitively, it is a theoretical framework for understanding how aspects of one's social and political identities (e.g., gender, race, class, sexuality, disability, etc.) might combine to create unique modes of discrimination. As someone who values your (collective) thought leadership across a wide spectrum, I am sadly disappointed that you (collectively) are tone death to your racially implicit bias. Please continue to (inclusively) broaden the intersectionality of your thought leadership; thus; inhibiting (to the extent possible) your parochial (racially implicit bias) concerning your social, political identities on race and gender. (Hancock, Ange-Marie (June 2007). "Intersectionality as a normative and empirical paradigm". Politics & Gender. 3 (2): 248-254. ; "Kimberlé Crenshaw on Intersectionality, More than Two Decades Later". Archived from the original on 23 February 2019. Retrieved 9 March 2019.

Where is Andrew Yang? It’s way too early in the election cycle for you to show so much bias to the candidates who are not in the top 4. Why not the top 5 or 6? Do you not like Asians?

You should ask that Andrew Yang guy about unique challenges candidates of color might be facing. They actually asked him a similar question on the debate stage. I'm not exactly sure why they asked him of all people though. I think it might have had something to do with the fact that he was the only candidate of color up there...anyways, love to hear more about Kamala, Castro, and Booker!

My God! One of Andrew Yang’s debate question and his best response of the night was about being the lone person color on the debate stage. How do reporters who claim to follow politics not bring that up. It happened two weeks ago. Booker, Harris and Castro who weren’t at the debates were mentioned but not Yang.

ABC or Disney must hate Andrew Yang. The question was tailored to get an Andrew Yang response and yet everyone one of them was doing their damnedest to not bring his name up. Can someone please find or leak that memo that proves the real coordinating Yang Media Black out.

Very disappointed that you didn't bring up the only person of color on last debate, Andrew Yang. Instead you all rambled about Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Julian Castro. Total blackout on the only Asian candidate. I expected this type of behavior from MSM, but you all are doing the same. WTF. I think your organization needs to be more ethnically diverse. Too mono-ethnic.

What is going on, I thought 538 is all about the data and representing, but no mention about Andrew Yang, WTF! The USA finally gets a candidate for the people and what do they do, make it hard on themselves to get him elected. Wake up 538, wake up America, Andrew Yang is the best thing for you and the rest of the world. I wish we could have him here in the UK!!

Hey FiveThirtyEight, I have lost respect for you. You omitted Andrew Yang again. He was the ONLY candidate of color at the December debate. After looking at your site, only about 3 or 4 people of color work for you. You are less diverse than FOX!!!! I think you guys have an unconscious bias against Asians. We are not the invisible model minority.

How do you not even mention Andrew Yang when you are talking about candidates of color and media coverage? He was the only person of color in the last debate and he has been under covered by the media, but you choose to focus on someone who has dropped out of the race and someone who is polling at 1-2%. It is difficult to tell if they are actively excluding him from the conversation or if the bias runs that deep.

On the off chance you aren't familiar with the Yang media blackout, Andrew Yang has been actively ignored to an extreme extent in utterly blatant ways. For instance being left off of "top performer" graphics repeatedly in lieu of MUCH lower polling candidates like Julian Castro. Also, do some more due diligence on ranked choice voting. You clearly don't understand how it would affect the election in general. Outside of getting corporate money out of politics that would be one the next most powerful ways you could empower voters to vote their conscience rather than just who they think is the "most electable".

Hey 538, you are either unconsciously biased or intentionally discriminating when it comes to candidates of color, but how can you ignore the only candidate of color on the last debate stage Andrew Yang, who has been painfully shunned by mainstream media, especially MSNBC???? Are you telling us you are NO DIFFERENT from them? #YangBlackoutOn538

#Yang2020 Just mention it here because they do a good job to "black" him out like others. The canditate with the by far biggest online support and constantly growing support from all kind of people. Many still dont even know him because he is not a politician and is only financed by the crowd. That means no fair media coverage which translates directly to the "official polls". But if you dig in the numbers and how it works you will see that the numbers in the polls are wrong. Lets not talk about color, lets talk about policies. Lets talk about the future! Get more info on yang2020.com or just search on YT for countless hours of good podcasts and interviews.

Andrew Yang is a unique candidate, total grass root, no corporate money. That alone should get some attention, but just totally ignored. MSM, and now 538, find other less thoughtful candidates as better talking points. He has brought to the forefront ubi, m4a, democracy dollars, human centered capitalism, etc., that no one talked about in the early primary discussions. Now other candidates are copying him, but MSM gives him no credit as the originator. What does it take to get your attention?

@snoflake yes. The trick is to grow Yang's support fast, in Iowa, NH, SC, and NV. If he does well in those states then people will look into who he is and with that, yang will win. Phone bank for yang

Q: “What are the unique issues facing candidates of color in media coverage” A: *Proceeds to ignore the candidate, Andrew Yang, who has been purposely ignored, left out of coverage, left off of infographics in favor of candidates polling and fundraising far lower than him, and even been outright denied as a person of color - who actually had to mount an online campaign just to get MSNBC to admit to “significant errors”.*

After the disaster of Donald Trump, the flippancy with which some push someone like Stacey Abrams who has never served as anything more than a state rep as VICE PRESIDENT boggles the mind. Let's get this straight: Mayor Pete is not qualified to be president; Stacey Abrams is not qualified to be Vice President. End of story.

I don't necessarily believe endorsements generate support for a specific candidate, but it's usually a sign that party loyalists are getting behind a certain candidate. An endorsement will only go to a candidate who's views reflect those of their constituents, so you're probably not going to see Doug Jones back a far-left candidate. There have been studies that show local newspaper endorsements *can* sway votes in local elections, but I'm not sure how that translates to a national scale with party leader endorsements.

Tbh if you want us to watch on youtube (I literally only came here to say this) I think you shouldn't cut content from the youtube one. Like ive seen a bunch of comments about this but I noticed it the most in the "primary according to the early states" episode where I noticed entire chunks of banter got cut bc I started listening to it but then saw the video was out and switched over. I'm not watching them now because I feel like I'm missing something gnarly.
