@yogthos @clacke The US government has almost no say on the discourse of news channels. Also, local tv news is not indicative of mainstream media in the US. Sanders was not sidelined, he came in 2nd place, twice, and his ideas have become mainstream in the US with Millennials.

Tech press, repeat after me:

$1bn+ valuation does not make a company a unicorn anymore. If it did, then we would have to accept that unicorns are as populous as horses now.
