The so-called progressives over at Slate spent the entire primary bashing Bernie Sanders. The fact that he’s now the most popular politician in the country must really grind their corporate neoliberal gears. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go
“Within a week of its release earlier this month, Bernie Sanders’ podcast had climbed to the number two slot on iTunes, just behind S-Town. (It’s now sitting at number six, still firmly in the top ten.) Which is to say: The Bernie Sanders Show, the product of a sitting U.S. senator’s Washington press office, is currently competing head-to-head in the same market as the likes of This American Lifeand TED Radio Hour. I’m not sure what that means, but I think it’s significant—certainly more significant than the show itself, which is almost as intellectually lazy as it is technically incompetent.
A popular talk show that’s hosted and editorially controlled by a current government official is something we normally expect from a Latin American dictatorship, such as the late Hugo Chávez’s hilarious and terrifying Aló Presidente, where Venezuela’s socialist leader would chat with his people, rant about capitalist conspiracies, order around his bureaucrats and occasionally tell a general to send thousands of troops on hostile exercises—all on live TV.”*
