Description

Today: Part 2 of our series on pivotal moments in the lives of the 2020 Democratic presidential contenders. Michael Barbaro speaks with Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist senator from Vermont. 

Mr. Sanders reflected on his early schooling in politics and how he galvanized grass-roots support to evolve from outraged outsider to mainstream candidate with little shift in his message.

Guest: Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator and candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. We also speak with Alexander Burns, who covers national politics for The New York Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. 

Background reading:

  • Mr. Sanders has staked his presidential campaign, and much of his political legacy, on transforming health care in America. His mother’s illness and a trip he made to study the Canadian system help explain why.
  • We asked 21 candidates the same 18 questions. Hear Mr. Sanders’s answers.

I gave up this Podcast for other news that isn't so corporate friendly. But was looking for some new news sources and just clicked on this one to see what they have been working on. When I saw the Bernie interview I was curious and of course expected it to go negative and you Neoliberal pos never disappoint.

In the Buttigieg interview it's nothing but praise, but with Sanders they rail against him about the Sandinistas and then claim he's being defensive about it? This episode was overtly biased and completely undermined the journalistic integrity of the New York Times.

What a bummer. Should I just give up expecting unbaiased coverage from The Times? It's so frustrating to watch them needlessly and repeatedly attack candidates who don't confirm to their centrist agenda. Unsubscribed.

You left out how quickly Sanders has been transforming the Democratic Party since 2015. That shows his plan works on a national scale.
