Fareed Zakaria's take on his show today:
https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/202 ... ps-vpx.cnn
He warns about the Dems nominating a socialist or Democratic socialist and provides the Corbin example of a sure way to lose. See the last minute of this video clip.
He and his news channel (CNN) are part of the corrupt establishment from the point of view of left wing populism.
The rise of populism cannot be separated from the wider use of social media that ended news channels monopoly on interpreting the political reality. It began on the right because the establishment in general utilizes politically correct rhetoric to advance its agenda, but that does not mean that the left leaning are not learning.
Some YouTube channels such as The Young Turks, Secular Talk and David Pakman show are hard-core Bernie supporters and anti establishment, and they appeal mainly to young voters who spend much more time on the internet than watching TV. In the last democratic debate, Bernie mentioned that the involvement of younger voters would help defeat Trump.
If any of the democratic candidates have a slight chance to defeat Trump, it would be Bernie. He is a true idealist in a non-pretentious way hence many of Trump's tricks wont work against him.
Criticizing Bernie seems to be working in his favor so far.
