JB: Agreed. Were you surprised to read about the leaks revealing the DNC collusion with Hillary's campaign as well as the corporate press to push her candidacy?

EH: I was not surprised by what the leaks revealed because on the internet, many Bernie supporters were reporting the scandals in Arizona, New York and California. Many reports of the mainstream media bias were also fueling the Bernie Sanders Facebook Pages. It all pointed to a likely very biased DNC with a chair who had been leading Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2008. It was clear that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was only helping Hillary. As a result, a class action lawsuit was filed last week in Florida. I hope the lawyers win to teach an ethical lesson to the DNC or parties in general.

JB: Thanks for mentioning that, Elisabeth. Anyone who donated to the DNC or to Bernie's campaign directly or via Act Blue can join this class action lawsuit at no cost to themselves. They're hoping that thousands of people sign up: The more, the merrier. [Here's the FB page which gives information about how to join.] You made at least one of your videos because of and to counteract what you felt was unfair press coverage that the Sanders campaign has gotten. Can you explain why you felt that way? What evidence do you have?

EH: The evidence I have is the absence of reports on the many rallies that Bernie Sanders conducted. There were tens of thousands of people in each rally (including 60,000 I believe in Oakland, California) but the mainstream media kept showing Hillary Clinton instead. If you noticed, she never had more than 500 people in a room, and many times these people were paying to come in!!! Not only all mainstream media were not reporting accurately but they were frequently mocking him for his age, his hair, his shoes, his suits, for his "utopian" ideas, for being a democrat socialist, for waving his finger when he spoke. Never to discuss his intelligent, well thought platform or how he was proposing to fund it. They were never reporting how many states he won or split and the fact that many states won by Hillary Clinton were Red states anyway that the Democrats had no chance to win in the general election.

There was also the reporting of the superdelegates always added to the pledged delegates to show Hillary Clinton leading by a wide margin from even before Bernie announced his candidacy! The truth is that she did not win the number of pledged delegates required to win for sure and there will be a contested convention, with the winner only decided by the superdelegates. No mainstream media explained why it would be a contested convention. On the contrary, they focused all their energy on trying to shame Bernie Sanders and portray him as a sore loser and spoiler. It was never appropriate to include the Super Delegates because they do not vote until the convention at the end of July. Just for this reason, I would so much like to see an indictment to teach the mainstream media a lesson on blind, despicable bias not reflective of excellent journalism by far!

JB: I'm looking forward to seeing what else you have up your sleeve. Anything you'd like to add before we wrap this up?

EH: I am currently working on a video that I hope will be fun to watch*.

And, as of July 2, 2016 10 pm, the number of viewers has passed 80,000.

JB: Wow!

EH: I want to say I am very appreciative of the people who watched my video and are leaving smart, nice, and interesting comments raising good questions and/or arguments.

JB: I've enjoyed both your videos and your enthusiasm. Thanks so much for talking with me, Elisabeth. Best of luck to you.

*Post script from Elisabeth: My latest video "What happened behind the FBI walls on 7/2/2016?" Dedicated on this 4th of July to the Founding Fathers and to the memory of my grandfather, who fought in WWI.
