Bernie Refuses To Take Media's Bait

Bernie Refuses To Take Media's Bait



>> You appeared to have a kinda of a non-aggression
pact with Elizabeth Warren. Do you two have a deal to not to attack each
other at least at this stage? >> There's seems to be a very aggressive attempt
both by debate moderators and members of the mainstream media to get Elizabeth Warren and
Bernie Sanders to fight. Now they're the two most progressive candidates. They are very similar when it comes to some
of their policies. However, there are some settle and significant
differences, which we've talked about on the show and we'll get into again, but it would
be a bad move for them to attack one another. So I think that it's a good idea that they're
staying away from that and resisting pressure to attack one another. And you know what, luckily,based on the answer
Bernie Sanders gave to CBS, they're not planning on doing so. So let's take a look. >> Elizabeth and I had been friends for over
20 years. She's running her campaign and I'm running
my campaign, they're different campaigns. But I think the most effective way to campaign,
to be honest with you, is to talk to the American people about why the middle class is disappearing,
why we have massive income and wealth inequality, the great challenge we face in terms of climate
change. The thievery that is now going on within the
pharmaceutical industry, where there is not only price fixing, but there is just incredible
greed. You talk about those issues, you do well. You try to beat up on somebody else, frankly,
I don't think that's good politics. >> But, Senator, at some point, you and Elizabeth
Warren, as most pundits seem to indicate, will make that next debate. How will you differentiate yourself from her? You're two progressives. >> Well, I'll tell you, I'll let you guys
and the punditry and the American people make that decision. >> It's amazing to me, because I get the sense,
and maybe I'm wrong that the media thinks that they're the same, like they're exactly
the same. And that it is Bernie Sanders' job or Elizabeth
Warren's job to attack, like they have to attack one another to make their case provide
them the best. And it's frustrating because he's absolutely
right there. First of all, they never read the policy. They don't care, they don't care about the
policy. None of them, I guarantee you, none of them
who have this insanely high paying jobs with these fat salaries have sat down and actually
read Bernie Sanders' Medicare for all bill or Elizabeth Warren's proposal on student
debt or Bernie Sanders' proposal on student debt. I'm not talking about some lame summary that
was written by some lame writer in some lame publication. I'm talking about the actual bill and what
it would do. Why don't you know what the difference is? Why don't you know and why don't you talk
about it? >> No, so, look, a couple of things. First of all, I agree with you that they care
more about the drama than the substance. >> Yep. >> So do they have a top line sense of the
difference? I'm not sure. Do they know all the details? I'm sure they don't. Okay, I'm keeping it real, right? But they don't really particularly care about
that. They care about the fight. >> Yes. >> And so is there a little bit of a group
thinking while those progressives fight, they might actually hurt each other's causes and
we're all kinda have an establishment bias? I think that does happen subconsciously, nobody
gets together at CBS and goes, should we get them to fight so the progressives will lose? No, there's no actual meeting like that but
there is a group think in Washington. But more importantly, that's a smaller part
of it. They just can't understand why the moderate,
the conservative Democrats, the corporate hours, whatever you wanna call them, are willing
to fight each other, and the progressives aren't, they just actually genuinely flummoxed
by it. Okay, so let me explain. And I was turning a reporter today about this
same issue and the reason that the corporate Democrats don't mind fighting each other is
because their objective is not policy. Even if they agree, even if, for example,
their healthcare proposals are incredibly similar, they'll fight anyway. Why? Cuz their goal is not policy, their goal is
power. They want to be president for the sake of
being president. And so if Cory Booker and Carla Harris agree
on something, they'll fight anyway, because maybe their number two if you're being fair
and kind to them, you'll see their number two objective is policy. But their number one objective is power. Now for Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren,
the reason why a lot of progressive voters like them or love them is because they are
genuine. They actually do care about policy. So they're like, why would I fight Bernie
Sanders if we agree on Medicare for all? What's there to fight over? Why would I fight Bernie Sanders about Green
New Deal if we agree on Green New Deal and vice versa? And so I think Bernie genuinely looks at it,
well, I don't know what you want me to fight about. Right? >> Yeah, look, if you wanna work for World
Star, go work for World Star, right? Like we wanna talk about substance and that's
one of the more frustrating parts of these debates because it's set up in a way where
all these candidates are looking to make these sound vitable moments that can be played later,
and they can feed into the drama in an effort to increase their name recognition. That's what it's about. And it's frustrating, because this is not
the time to play these stupid little games. Now is the time to talk about real solutions. People are suffering right now. Things continue to devolve under the Trump
administration. And they're sitting there having a conversation
about, why aren't you guys gonna to fight? Who's gonna to throw the first punch? Again, it's not World Star. >> It's kind of a weird, ironic to be fair
to them. But most of the media have never seen two
progressives at once in the same race. You often never see one progressive in a race,
let alone two progressives in a race. And so it doesn't compute, because almost
all the politicians care about power and not principles. So it's almost a foreign entity that they
don't know how to deal with. And they assume that, no, of course they don't
actually care about policy, like all other politicians, they just want power and they
wanna be able to call themselves president. So I kinda get why they're confused, because
it is so different than anything else they've ever dealt with. But even if you just wanna do strategy by
the way guys, it would still be bad strategy to fight today. And by the way, mainstream media, if you want
a fight, they gave you one, just wasn't against one another. Those two as one of the reporters told me
in the middle of the debate turned to me and he's not a progressive, he's just a normal
reporter, said, it seemed like they went back to back, like you see in the movies. They were kinda cornered against superior
forces like many more people and they started doing, like, wheel kicks out of the corner. >> Yeah, that was great. It was it was wonderful to watch. >> Yeah and they kicked the living crap out
of the conservative Democrats. You gotta fight and they want it. It's just that they didn't fight against each
other. >> Exactly. I mean, I really appreciated the solidarity. And if that solidarity confuses these top
dogs in the media, then honestly, it's just another example of mediocrity in our mainstream
press like it just is. I mean, they should understand these things,
they should know these things. I mean, it's incredible to me that they have
all the resources just right there in the palm of their hands and I don't know why are
you guys fighting. I mean, that is how deep this conversation
goes. In fact, final video on this, let's take a
look at the follow up question. >> What is the single principle there? What is the biggest difference between you
and Senator Sanders? Senator? >> No. >> No? >> By half no. I have to tell the American people what I
believe. And I'm gonna take on the greed of Wall Street,
the drug companies, the insurance companies. We are gonna tell the Fossil Fuel industry
that they cannot continue to destroy this planet for their short-term profits. >> Look, I love that Bernie is focussed on
a message and he's not straying from that message, but I'm not gonna sit here and say
that I don't want him to fight, period. I think it's important for him and for Elizabeth
Warren to remain in solidarity while talking about the substance and the differences in
their policies. I want him to fight the conservative Democrats
because they are gonna be punching him in the face. And what we saw in this last debate was more
the fighter. We saw him throw some punches and it worked. So he does need to fight in an effort to differentiate
himself from their policy but more importantly to defend himself cuz there's gonna be a lot
more attacks. >> Yeah, actually, that's good point. So that leads me to my final two points. If you notice Bernie was far more combative
in this debate than the first debate, why was that? Because Bernie doesn't like fighting in debates,
he just doesn't. He never really challenged Hillary Clinton
in any of the debates. He barely laid a glove on her. I mean, Jesus, if it was me. Would have been totally different, right? And if you watch the show, you know what I
mean. So why did he come out fighting in the second
one? Because he didn't, they attacked him. If you remember, John Delaney, in his opening
statement, attacked Bernie Sanders. And why should I be President? Cuz I hate Bernie Sanders. And so since they personally attacked him,
it was the wrong strategy. It forced Bernie to fight back, which he doesn't
actually like to do in the debates. So they had the wrong strategy. Now why is the progressives staying together
the right strategy? First of all, again, if you only cared about
politics, it'd still be right. Because they actually have fairly different
voters, if you look at the demographics of the polling, and so why would a progressive
like Bernie Sanders wanna alienate other progressive voters that are backing Elizabeth Warren and
vice versa? It's actually smart. Plus, they actually do care about the policies,
and the last thing is Republicans made a giant mistake in 2016 when they all attacked one
another and left Trump alone. If you remember, they did that for like 80,
90% of the primaries. They're like, it's okay. We'll be down to one against Trump and then
that one establishment person will beat Trump and obviously didn't work that way. Progressives are not making that same mistake. They're saying, hey, it would be a dream come
true if the final two were progressive. We ain't got time to worry about that. We got 20 other conservative democrats that
knockout first. Eyes on the prize, know what your real objectives
are. So they're both doing a terrific job of doing
that.

  2. Bernie is the man. MSM cant STAND that it is trying to divide and conquer and its not working as well as the last couple times.

    MEDIA is complicit, there Ana, so come on already. that curtain on all the secret-dudes is ripped back, so.. yeah. Big Media is bad at the top, it explains the rampant sex-shit in the corporate offices down to the cheep talkinghead seats.

    we see this
    MSM courtiers need to get STRAIGHT fast
    too much weird shit is happening in OUR COUNTRY
    we got weird stuff goin down over on LITTLE SAINT JAMES ISLAND

  3. this is Mel chicken a collector of beautiful things feet and wings from wings I flew from wood I took riddle Who am I that cute little bird I sent to the podium how is this possible I am The Impossible why right now because everything is at a set time I am time that's set you are a night in my chest bored rock tonight for

  4. If we were voting strictly on Authenticity & Trustworthiness, I place Bernie #1, Tulsi #2 and Warren a distant #3

  5. MSM is taking the Russia approach; stoking division and sowing discontent. They just want to see the top two progressive candidates go at each other. For entertainment, and because they desperately want an anti-progressive soundbyte. Bernie and Warren are too smart to take the bait.

  6. If I were bernie I would have said "If the media paid more attention to the American people's needs and less on the horse race and personal attacks in politics then maybe we wouldn't have trump as president right now".

  7. America refuses to ever allow Bernie to get the nomination. He'll never be more than a senator from a tiny odd state.

  8. Yessss!!! Y’all two need to be on cnn instead of Anderson cooper Vanderbilt asking Liz why she didn’t fight Bernie lol

  9. I have this theory, that Bernie Sanders plans on dropping out before the first vote is cast. Now, let me be clear, he's my #1 and Warren's my #2 'cause he was the first person who woke me up to my own political leanings. But, I know he cares more about the policies than his potential presidency, and Warren is almost exactly in step with him on that. I think she told him that she was running, and he, remembering 2016, decides to run as well, hoping to keep the press from attacking her by being a more juicy target.

    We know that is how things played out, to the point where they are raising up Warren in hopes to split Bernie's vote. I bet he sees the split vote as a big threat, and I genuinely believe he's willing to swallow his pride and support his friend instead. She may even choose him as VP, who knows.

    I'm betting, right before voting starts, that he's gonna step down, and tell his supporters to vote Warren in. They'll probably be together on that stage, too.

  10. Man, it's HILARIOUS.
    They (The TV and Cable companies) are against' Med4All because if that happens the insurance/big pharma companies won't spend all the money they do currently on ADVERTISEMENTS, directly affecting the profits of these TV/Cable guys. It's so obvious it's painful. They want the top two candidates who are for actual change to fight so some asshat centrist can take the cake. Well, hopefully the citizens of the USA don't fall for this again. I know I sure as hell won't. Bernie or BUST.
