Description

Two weeks ago, the biggest story in the country was the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Another effort of biased support of Joe Biden. calling him the crisis candidate, despite him essentially disappearing during this crisis. Meanwhile, not a single mention of the efforts of Bernie Sanders during this time - raising money for relief of this crisis, working on legislation, and leading with action. Everyone who put this episode together should be ashamed, and this episode was the tipping point for me to unsubscribe to not only this podcast, but to cancel my Times subscription.
