It's so nice to see a progressive interviewing a presidential candidate. What a difference.

Here are some quotes from Bernie in the interview:
"We need to break through the fog of the corporate media, which do everything they can to keep us entertained."
"The media is an arm of the ruling class in this country and they want to talk about everything else except the most important issues."
"Television stations love Citizens United."
"Hillary Clinton is the establishment candidate. They (the MSM) are scared to death (of Bernie.)"
"Sometimes I feel my audiences 'don't accept the status quo or their options.'"
Cenk asked Bernie if he would support Hillary if he loses. He replied, "What will the Democratic establishment do for us." and "If we can't win we want to completely revitalize the Democratic party and make it the party of the people.
Further discussing the idea of supporting Clinton if he loses, Bernie listed criteria required for his support:
  • medicare for all
  • $15/hour minimum wage
  • Rebuild our crumbling infrastructure
  • vigorous effort to address climate change
  • making public colleges and universities tuition-free
  • Cenk asked, "Do you think Obama has done enough to get money out of politics?" Bernie replied, "No. He could have done more."
    "What we need is to create a movement that holds politicians accountable."
    "We need to have public funding of elections."
    "We need a political revolution which starts electing politicians who are accountable."
