The mainstream media is trying to erase Bernie Sanders. They’ve hated him since 2015—we’ve been dealing with this for four years now—but this time their attempts to bury his campaign are so brazen and conspicuous it can no longer NOT be called out by everyone. This includes people who don’t support Bernie Sanders, but are concerned with fairness and objectivity and realize this may one day harm a candidate they support in the future. With that being said, we’ll discuss the #BernieBlackout and talk about the election results, Elizabeth Warren’s plan to finance Medicare For All, Trump’s takeover of the federal judiciary, a new warning from scientists about climate change, Amazon’s attempt to defeat socialist Kshama Sawant, and we’ll be joined by Nomiki Konst and Jovanka Beckles to talk about the launch of their new Justice Democrats-esque organization called Matriarch. We’ll close the show by talking to 2020 congressional candidate Russ Cirincione who’s running against Frank Pallone in New Jersey’s 6th congressional district.
