지난주, the ADG printed an op-ed written by Sanders’ rival Chris Jones, 누가 샌더스를 비난했는지 “결석” 교육 및 교사 급여 인상 문제에 대해.
“내가 내 계획을 발표했을 때, I invited Sanders to participate in this important statewide conversation. 운수 나쁘게, she’s still an unexcused absence on education at this time,” Jones wrote Thursday.
잘, according to Sanders, the ADG did not afford the same opportunity for her to lay out her education plan, telling her Twitter followers there’s a “reason Americans don’t trust the media.
“This February, I reached out to @ArkansasOnline to publish a column outlining my education priorities as governor. They refused,” Sanders wrote Monday. “이유? Discovered on an internal email accidentally sent to my staff… They said it was too ‘campaign-y’ and wanted me to purchase an ad.”
Sanders then shared a screenshot of ADG editorial page editor David Barham, who told a colleague, “I dunno. Should I tell her to buy an ad?” 나중에 추가, “This seems very campaign-y. But I don’t know if we’ve done this sort of thing before on Voices.”
In a separate email shared by Sanders, Barham is seen telling the campaign, “Thank you for considering us. But because Mrs. Sanders is a candidate for office, this wouldn’t work for our Voices page,” suggesting to reach out to Voices editor Brenda Looper for questions about the paper’s policies.
“Americans know the liberal media has one set of rules for Republicans and another for Democrats… But they can’t – and won’t – silence me or YOU,” Sanders tweeted. “That’s why I’ve taken my campaign straight to the people – meeting with thousands of Arkansans in all 75 카운티. I’ll never sit back and let the liberal media peddle their bias and double standards and get away with it.”
Neither Looper nor Barham immediately responded to Fox News’ 의견 요청.
샌더스, daughter of former Arkansas Gov. 마이크 허커비, is eyeing to become the state’s first female governor.
She became a national figure when she served as White House press secretary during the Trump administration. Sanders was also a Fox News contributor.
She will face off against Chris Jones, a physicist and minister who will have an uphill battle defeating his GOP opponent in a deep red state like Arkansas. Like Sanders, Jones would make history if elected in November, potentially becoming Arkansas’ first Black governor.
