Bernie (and Warren) Refuse to Take Media's Bait



Progressives Sanders and Warren refuse to join a circular firing squad. Instead of attacking each other,
they focus on promoting their plans in order to help real working people.

1. "Sanders and Warren refuse to join a circular firing squad"

 

Because they didn't shoot at each other.
doesn't mean they didn't aim at the other Democratic candidates.

25. Cenk is not popular on JPR

 

He is seen as being top favorable to most democrats. Jimmy Dore is a more beloved figure on that site.

11. How does (former?) genocide denier Cenk define "subscriber"?

 

Fewer than 28,000 pay for subscriptions to the "news channel" funded with a Republican billionaire's seed money.

19. LOL! Great catch!

 

There's always something "fishy" when it comes to Cenk. Even his "Justice Democrats" groups is fishy... apparently it's now under investigation, too.

23. Sam Seder is excellent as well

 

I can't believe i wasted thousands of hours watching the likes of Chuck Todd, Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell, and countless others.

The argument against Cenk seems to be that he took a loan from GOPer Buddy Roemer, thus his show is biased. You probably feel like I do when I see a segment on MTP "brought to you by Boeing." The MIC and big pharma have put a TAINT on mainstream media.

26. "Brought to you by Boeing" is better "by a Republican billionaire & a genocide denier"

9. How can anyone recommend a video by a guy who accepts millions of dollars from....

 

...a right wing republican and Russia Today?

He also spent decades denying that the Armenian genocide ever happened, and named his show after the group that perpetrated the genocide.

"The Young Turks" is a slap in the face of those affected by the genocide.

16. They don't?

 

I DON’T understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Tuesday night, in the most notable zinger of July’s Democratic presidential primary debate. “I get a little bit tired of Democrats afraid of big ideas,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the other major candidate on the field’s left wing, piled on. This got us thinking about some big ideas in U.S history. Like, say, amending the Constitution to outlaw liquor. Or sending half a million troops into Vietnam. Or passing a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy in a time of massive deficits.
