I know we have spoken about Andrew Yang but could not find a subject heading for him.  

My children who are in their 20's both appreciate Yang and follow him on Twitter.  They brought to my attention that MSNBC on Sunday had to apologize after the network ( once again) left Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang off a presidential poll result graphic, with the network calling the error inadvertent.  The problem is that the error has happened before, repeatedly.  I remember when it first happened and Yang handled their apology pretty well.  I think he is beyond annoyed now.  He is polling at nearly 3 present, and in 6th place.  

"Thank you @MSNBC, for making this apology for the 15th time. The #YangGang is very excited for #16," Yang campaign manager Zach Graumann reacted.

Anyone have a feel for why this continues to occur?  Fox News have been loving the fact that it is MSNBC making the mistake.

For those who don't know, I am updating the above subject.  Yang tweeted this recently link.  It is a history of all the times he has been left out of graphic and poll results , mostly on MSNBC.  It is VERY interesting.  "Stuff happens,"  but this seems much more than that now.  By now, MSNBC should be hyper sensitive to leaving Yang off a poll result or leaving him last in questions during a debate, especially since he isn't polling last.  

IF it is intentional, and by now it sure seems a possibility, that is concerning for a whole bunch of reasons.

Something else I noticed, on SNL this week, they covered the debate and included every candidate.and the characters all spoke  However, while they had every candidate give a closing remark, only "Yang" was not covered for a closing remark.  It could have been a funny moment if SNL  focused on that as a joke. SNL is known for making fun of its parent network in the past, but there was no actual joke done about it.   It just didn't happen.and no reference to it.   So that was weird too.  

I truly think this is a bigger story than we are aware.  

Yang is beginning to pick up some former Trump supporters too who dislike Trump and dislike MSNBC and CNN is now covering this a bit too.

Yang is an unconventional candidate in several ways. The media may have trouble wrapping their heads around his mix of positions (combined with the fact that he's never held elected office). But we have to ask ourselves whether the Bamboo Ceiling is at work in all of this, too. I can think of at least one other unconventional political figure who never held elected office, but who the media lapped up anyways (hint: he has yellow hair and likes to boast about his "good genes").

Bamboo Ceiling!  That is a new term for me but yes, I have been more aware that this is an issue that exists recently.

Just updating to say Yang met the threshold in the latest poll and will be in the next December debate.  One of the reasons this is important is because there will now be some diversity on stage.

Evelyn Yang, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, revealed publicly for the first time to CNN that she was sexually assaulted by her obstetrician-gynecologist when she was pregnant.

Evelyn Yang was one of 18 victims who were part of a lawsuit against Robert Hadden, who lost his medical license after pleading guilty to a criminal sex act.

n a statement to HuffPost, Andrew Yang praised his wife for sharing her experience.

“I’m extraordinarily proud of Evelyn for telling her story, and my heart breaks every time I think of what she had to experience. She is my best friend and the bravest woman I know. No one deserves to be harmed and treated the way she and countless other women have been. When victims of abuse come forward, they deserve our belief, support, and protection. I hope that Evelyn’s story gives strength to those who have suffered and sends a clear message that our institutions must do more to protect and respond to women.”

After her story aired on CNN, he tweeted in support of his wife: “I love my wife very very much.”
