Clearly, the idea of having a successful Asian male presidential candidate is too much for some audiences to handle.
Last night, CNN was caught red-handed after omitting Andrew Yang from their latest graphic for “Top Choice” Democratic nominees and was shortly accused of deliberately hiding the presidential hopeful from the public eye.

This isn’t Yang’s first time being mistreated by the media, in June, he was completely left out of MSNBC’s list of 2020 democratic presidential candidates.
Earlier this month, Twitter users also pointed out that CNN had allegedly taken down at least two different videos of Anderson Cooper interviewing Yang.

Since CNN’s latest mishap, Yang responded to his loyal Yang Gang in an email:
“Now you may not realize it from this image, but we were actually ahead of one of the candidates in this poll,” he wrote.
In fact — in several of the polls released this week — we have been leading more than one of the candidates in this graphic.
“I’ll admit I’ve never been a politician before, but the treatment of our rising national poll results has been odd and confusing.
“That said, this tells me one thing — it’s important for us to send a message before the September debate that our movement is real and growing. And, most importantly, cannot be ignored.”
Last night, CNN was caught red-handed after omitting Andrew Yang from their national poll results graphic and was shortly accused of deliberately hiding the presidential hopeful from the public eye.
The presidential hopeful was undeterred by the situation and looked to greater possibilities in the future, writing, “The trend of this campaign is already very positive — think where we could be if we received the same level of coverage as folks like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Joe Biden. “
“We must prove to everyone this is a movement that can’t be ignored. And the power to do that is in your hands now. Let’s do this Yang Gang!”
On Twitter, Yang addressed the situation in another tweet, adding, “I’ll admit to finding some of the treatment of our national poll results to be odd and confusing. I don’t think my picture looks THAT bad.”

However, CNN’s omittance of Yang’s success has only fired up the Yang Gang as his loyal supporters have since brought back the #GoogleAndrewYang and made #YangMediaBlackout go viral on Twitter.

In response to the buzz from social media, CNN has invited Andrew Yang to appear on Christopher Cuomo’s show tonight.
