Sanders’ plan to protect journalism draws concern


GOOD EVENING, I’M DAVID AS AN INTERVENING ON PENN STATE JONATHAN, CHRISTINA, CAROL AND JOHN. THE 2020 DEMOCRAT MAY NOT LOVE HOW THE MEDIA COVERS HIM BUT HE SAYS HE WANTS TO SAVE QUOTES, REAL JOURNALISM, BY DRIVING OUT ITS CORPORATE OWNERS. HE SLAMS THE LIKES OF JEFF BESOS SANDERS NEW PROPOSAL AIMING TO STOP CORPORATE CONSOLIDATION TAKE ANTITRUST ACTION AGAINST TECH GIANTS LIKE FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE AND BOLSTER INDEPENDENT NEWS BY ENDORSING A QUOTE, TARGETED ADVERTISING TAX FOR FUNDING NEWSROOMS. SANDERS STATING PART QUOTE, TODAY’S ASSAULT ON JOURNALISM I WALL STREET BILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMAN SILICON VALLEY AND DONALD TRUMP PRESENT A CRISIS AND WHY WE MUST TAKE CONCRETE ACTION AND WE SHOULD NOT WANT EVEN MORE OF THE FREE PRESS TO BE PUT UNDER THE CONTROL OF A HANDFUL OF CORPORATIONS AND BENEVOLENT BILLIONAIRES WHO CAN USE THEIR MEDIA EMPIRES TO PUNISH THEIR CRITICS AND SHIELD THEMSELVES FROM SCRUTINY. JONATHAN, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BERNIE’S SOLUTION?>>FREE PRESS THAT MEANS FREE FROM GOVERNMENT. BUT OUT BERNIE. THIS IS INFURIATING THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO ROLE ZERO, ZILCH NO ROLE IN JOURNALISM AND IN SPEECH AND IN IDEAS BUT BOTH BERNIE IN THE LAST AND ON THE RIGHT AS WELL HAVE CONSISTENTLY BEEN ATTACKING THE FREE PRESS NOT JUST ONE INSTITUTION OR ONE PURE RADICAL OR REPORTER FOR THE INSTITUTION AT LARGE AND THAT’S WHAT PAVING THE WAY FOR THESE CALLS ARE MORE GOVERNMENT REGULATION OR INSTITUTION INTO WHAT COULD BE MORE SACRED THAN A FIRST AMENDMENT OUR FREE PRESS. BUT OUT, BERNIE.>>CAN WE GET AN AMEN OUT IN HERE? I AGREE WITH YOU JONATHAN. THE FUNNY THING IS I FEEL LIKE WE HAVE NOT HAD A FREER PRESS THAN WE DO NOW IN THE FACT THAT EVERYONE HAS A VOICE WHETHER PUBLISHING YOUR OWN BLOG ON THE INTERNET OR GOING ONTO A BIG, BAD CORPORATE SITES LIKE FACEBOOK OR TWITTER AND TO HAVE YOUR OWN VOICE AND PUT IT OUT THERE. WE’VE NOT HAD THAT BEFORE. UNLESS YOU ARE A JOURNALIST OR KNEW SOMEBODY WHO WOULD PUBLISH YOU CANNOT GET YOUR VOICE INTO THE MIX SO I WOULD ARGUE THAT THE PROBLEM IS NOT THAT WE DON’T HAVE A FREE PRESS BUT CONSUMERS HAPPEN TO CLICK ON CLICK BEAT ALL THE TIME YOU DON’T HAVE THE BEST TASTE. DAVID: PANEL, STAY IN. I WANT TO BRING IN THE MEDIA RESEARCH CENTER, DAN GAYNOR. YOU MIGHT NOT LOOK HIS SOLUTIONS BUT BERNIE HAS HAD ON REAL PROBLEMS WITH JOURNALISM, NO?>>JOURNALISTS HAVE A TON OF PROBLEMS AND BERNIE’S SOLUTIONS ARE NOT GOOD. LET’S HAVE THE SOCIALIST MESS WITH THE CONSTITUTION IN FREE PRESS. NOT ALWAYS A GOOD THING. THESE ARE NOT EVEN NEW SOLUTIONS AND I – I WROTE AN OP-ED FROM BOX NINE YEARS AGO TALKING ABOUT HOW A FREE PRESS IS TRYING TO GRAFT FROM GOVERNMENT FROM JOURNALISTS $230 BILLION THAT BACK THEN BECAUSE THEY KNOW IF GOVERNMENT IS FUNDING JOURNALISM IT WILL END UP FUNDING LEFT-WING JOURNALISM JUST LIKE IT DOES IN EUROPE AND JUST LIKE IT DOES HERE IN AMERICA WHEN IT COMES IT. PBS, JOURNALISTS BASICALLY ARE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT OPERATION ALREADY AND CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THEY GOT MORE MONEY? THEY WOULD NOT BE MORE CONSERVATIVES BUT MORE LIBERAL.>>PART OF THE GOVERNMENT OPERATION JOURNALISTS ARE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT OPERATION DID I HEAR THAT CORRECTLY?>>YEAH, THAT’S WHAT – [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS]>>THAT’S COMPLETELY INCORRECT. I WANT TO GO BACK TO ANOTHER POINT BEFORE DAN JOINED JUST, HE SAID GOVERNMENTS ARE NOT IN BEING AND EVERYONE HAS A VOICE BUT HAVEN’T YOU IN THE PAST, ON THE SHOW, ARGUE THAT MAYBE THE LIKES OF FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE ARE SHUNNING THE RIGHT WING VOICES AND FAVORING LIBERALS BY US OR HAVING THE LIBERAL BIAS SO ISN’T THAT GOING CONTRADICTORY TO WHAT YOU’RE STEALING RIGHT NOW THAT EVERYONE HAS A VOICE AND OUT THEY DON’T? THERE IS A CONCERN THAT THE SOCIAL MEDIA GIANTS IS THAT THEY DO HAVE A LOT OF CONTROL OVER WHAT WE SEE AND CONTRIBUTE OR GET A LOT OF THE ALGORITHM AND MORE PEOPLE ARE TURNING TO THEM SO I DO THINK IT’S AN ISSUE AND NO, JOURNALISTS ARE NOT PART OF THE GOVERNMENT INSTITUTION OR WHATEVER YOU JUST SAID, DAN. [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS]>>IF I COULD RESPOND BACK TO CHRISTINA TO ADDRESS THAT HE POINT. IF YOU LISTEN TO I SAID ON THE PROGRAM BEFORE I SAID I FEEL LIKE THESE FORMS SHOULD PROTECT THE SPEECH AND THAT’S WHAT THEY SHOULD DO BUT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT INTERVENE AND THEY SHOULD BE THE FREE MARKET THAT PUTS PRESSURE ON COMPANIES AND SHAREHOLDERS SHOULD PUT PRESSURE ON THEM AND FOLLOW FREE SPEECH OUT OF PRINCIPLE NOT BECAUSE THEY’RE REQUIRED TO BY LAW. I AM NOT ARGUING FOR GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION BEFORE OR TODAY.>>NO, BUT IN THE PAST – GO AHEAD, JOHN.>>CHRISTINA, I WILL AGREE WITH YOU BECAUSE YOU SAY THAT REPORTERS ARE NOT FOR THE GOVERNMENT INSTITUTION BUT LOOK TO THE WASHINGTON POST WITH – BY THE WAY, BERNIE SANDERS CALLED OUT AS WELL. THEY HAVE 47 PULITZERS AND THEY ARE THE ONE THAT BROKE THE WATERGATE SCANDAL AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT THEY WERE SUPPOSEDLY WORKING FOR. ANY POLITICIAN WE HAVE, RIGHT OR LEFT, WILL GO AFTER ANY PRESS THAT’S AGAINST HIM AND US HURTING OUR PRESS AND YOU HAD BILLIONAIRES WITH THE GRAHAM FAMILY WASHING THE WANTING TO POST AND WE’VE ALWAYS HAD BILLIONAIRES – NOT ALWAYS GREAT LIKE WILLIAM RANDALL HEARST AND JOSEPH PULITZER. WE HAD BAD THINGS HAPPEN BUT WERE STARTING TO SEE MORE FREEDOM OF PRESS NOW AND I DON’T THINK THESE POLICIES WILL TAKE. DAVID: DON, YOU WOULDN’T BE FOR A SYSTEM WHERE THE GOVERNMENT HAS A TAX AND PAY FOR SOME KIND OF GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED OR GOVERNMENT REGULATED JOURNALISM SYSTEM THAT IS PAID FOR BY TAXPAYERS, WOULD YOU?>>OH MY GOD, NO, DAVID. ABSOLUTELY NOT. I’M WITH JONATHAN. I DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT IN ANY OF IT BUT I THINK IT’S UNFAIR TO BE JOURNALISM COMPLETELY AS A LIBERAL PROPAGANDA.>>I AGREE WITH YOU BUT HONESTLY I ASKED THIS QUESTION TODAY IF IT DOESN’T THE PRESIDENT, ON SOME LEVEL, BEAR SOME OF THIS RESPONSE ABILITY BECAUSE HE TAKES EVERY OPPORTUNITY NOT TO GO AFTER ONE PARTICULAR NEWSPAPER REPORTER BUT A TAX THE PRESS AT LARGE AND THE MEDIA IS IN THAT SEWING THIS ELEMENT OF DISTRUST THAT ESSENTIALLY PAVES THE WAY FOR BURNING?>>I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THAT.>>ONE THING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP. HE DID NOT START THIS FIGHT. THE MEDIA SUPPORTED – THEY LOVE TO TRUMP FOR A LONG TIME AND THEN THEY DID EVERYTHING THEY COULD SO HE FOUGHT BACK. HE SAID SOMETHING THAT I WIDELY DISAGREE WITH. HE SAID THE PRESS IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. THEY’RE NOT THE ENEMY OF THE LEFT. THEY LOVE THE LEFT. BUT I ENEMIES TO CONSERVATIVES? ABSOLUTELY.>>HE DID NOT START IT? WHAT KIND OF ARGUMENT IS THAT I HEAR THAT FOR MY EIGHT -YEAR-OLD KID. [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS] DAVID: JOHN, ARE YOU SUGGESTING THAT THE MEDIA GIVES DONALD TRUMP A FAIR SHAKE?>>I THINK THE MEDIA HAS AN INHERENT LIBERAL BIAS, YES, I AGREE WITH THAT BUT WE DON’T HAVE NEWSPAPERS THAT ARE BASED IN DES MOINES OR CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA SO YES, THE MEDIA HAS A LIBERAL BIAS AND I DON’T THINK THAT LEADS INTO STORIES. DAVID: YOU DON’T? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN – DO YOU REMEMBER THEY TRY TO PUT OUT A HEADLINE THAT SEEMS LIKE IT MIGHT BE PRO- TRUMP AND THEY HAD TO CHANGE IT AT THE LAST MINUTE BEFORE IT HIT THE PRESSES.>>DAVID, ISN’T THAT THE BEAUTY? CAROL ALLUDED TO THIS. THERE ARE MORE SOURCES NOW AND MORE JOURNALISM FOR MORE VOICES THAT’S EVER BEEN HAD BEFORE AND CITIZEN JOURNALISM WERE PODCASTING.>>PEOPLE THAT ARE SPEWING LIES ON THE BLOG IS NOT JOURNALISM. YOU HAVE MORE PEOPLE BUT TO JOHN’S POINT THERE’S BEEN 1400 COMMUNITIES THAT HAVE LOST THE NEWSPAPERS AND WHERE THE LOCAL NEWS OUT THERE? [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS]>>LAST TIME I CHECKED THE FIRST AMENDMENT INCLUDED FREEDOM OF PRESS BELONGS TO ALL OF US BUT YES, IF SOMEONE BLOGS WHETHER THEY ARE A HIGH PAY NEW YORK TIMES REPORTER OR ORDINARY PERSON ON THE STREET THEY ARE BLOGGING THAT JOURNALISM BUT THE PROBLEM IS ->>CHRISTINA WOULD DECIDE WHAT JOURNALISM IS. DAVID: HOLD ON. HOLD ON. AS AN OLD PRINT GUIDE LET ME GO BACK TO DAN ON THIS BECAUSE I THINK CHRISTINA MAKES A GOOD POINT. IN THE OLD DAYS I WORKED AT THE JOURNAL FOR MANY YEARS AND WE HAD FOUR LEVELS OF EDITORS BEFORE ANYTHING WOULD HIT THE NEWSPRINT. THAT IS GONE NOW AND A LOT OF JOURNALISM IT’S JUST RIGHT FROM YOUR FINGERS INTO THE INTERNET AND BECOMES COLD, JOURNALISM. THAT, JONATHAN, IF YOU HAVE THESE LEVELS OF EDITORS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO CHECK THE ACCURACY OF YOUR STORY THAT DOES PROVIDE – NEVER HAVE A GUARANTEE BUT MORE EVIDENCE THAN WHAT YOU HAVE PRINTED IS TRUE. RIGHT?>>AND IT HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.>>WELL, THIS HIGH LEVEL OF ACCURACY ARE THE SAME ONES, DAVID, THAT LATE JASON BLAIR . DAVID: BIG MISTAKES WERE MADE.>>YEAH, BUT WHAT I THANK YOU MIGHT QUIBBLE WITH THE NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL BUT TO CRITICIZE THEIR ACTUAL REPORTING THEY SEND REPORTERS OUT AND DO REPORT THE NEWS AND AT THE END OF THE DAY IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, TURN IT

  1. not a free press it's a mocking for bird press one says something and they all say something in other words there's nothing free about it it's just reap Pete and Repeat sitting on the fence Pete fell off who was left same thing over and over again you get online 1 company or just name a name CNN NBC you know CBS all these name the Free Press it's a bulshit is what it is because you know do your own investigation basically it's just repeating what's already been said on television any given day you can turn it on anything new they say it and then the next one says it then the next one word for word

  2. Seeing Trump supporters defend the Mainstream media now that Bernie is criticizing it is beautiful hypocrisy <3

  3. The Washington post ran 16 negative stories about Bernie Sanders in 16 hours and conservatives think he’s beloved by the media LMAO

  4. Bernie is tax crazy he wants to tax the weather, for a guy who never had a job he's been living off of tax payers all his life he has more schemes to tax everything and everybody but himself. Bernie will tax the fleas on a dog.

  5. BERNIE SANDERS IS A CAMELEON CONMAM, JUST LOOK INTO HIS EYES WHEN HE IS CORNERED AND QUESTION, HE KNOWS VERY WELL THAT HE IS DECIEVING THESE SNOWFLAKES AND HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR FUTURE, UNFORTUNATELY THESE STUDENTS ARE SOO STUPID AND LAZY TO RESEARCH FOR THE TRUTH

  6. These people at Fox News living in their own bubble have clearly never heard of the BBC, which is leagues above any corporate news in America.

  7. That hurt to watch… it’s like they all agreed but disagreed and were arguing over details (except for the Janeane Garafaolo lookalike in the bottom left who had to grit her teeth and smile while everyone else got to butt in)

  8. Go home Bernie and spend some time with your wife before she or both of you go to prison for the loan fraud in the money that you and your wife took from the college and the banks

  9. Hilarious–and telling–that Fox News doesn't like Bernie's plan to split journalism from corporate domination. Fox News is the primary propaganda organ of corporate rule. It uses the taxpayer-funded publicly-owned airwaves to distract the 99% from the fact that its corporate masters are fleecing millions from our pockets.

  10. Bernie is trying to help make media more independent less cooperative control and this corporate media doesn't want more independents media? Haha

  11. Sanders protects journalism and now after a $trillion medicare for all? Hmm🤔.
    What Bernie wants to protect journalism from? The most media in USA is Democrats players and also Democrats have media plantation around world in every Nation. The journalism is also one of the medicare policies the Democrats effectively used and using. That's how Democrats opened many channels of TV and even started Youtubing to make money with kick of likes. If Sanders protects journalism then what Obama/Michelle doing with media journalism? And many journalist and media journalism got addicted to sharing-caring of news with meat and lusty toppings.

  12. Mr. Trump promised during his first campaign to eliminate the national debt “over a period of eight years,” but huge debt does not seem to matter much to him now. In his State of the Union address this year, he did not utter the words “debt” or “budget deficit” once.

    His biggest legislative success, for instance, was a $1.5 trillion package of tax cuts for individuals and corporations that has pushed the national debt higher than nonpartisan forecasters projected.

    “This is Keynesian on crack,” said Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s former chief strategist, referring to the theory — to which he is sympathetic — that the government can stimulate the economy through aggressive steps like cutting taxes and increasing spending. “We have the largest tax cut ever,” Mr. Bannon added, “and $4 trillion in government spending.”

  13. There is no journalism left. It's propaganda leftist Protectionism. We've been in the dark about so many ill deals within our government whether Trade deals or state laws. Now we see how corrupt and one sided everything has been thanks to social media, actual investigative Journalist and a more transparent white House.

  14. Our elections are far more influenced by biased journalism than by any other nation. We have become a country manipulated by biased, misleading propaganda.

  15. I agree that we need a CONCRETE solution on our border! The concrete should be placed , very carefully, in the mouths of those trying to change our laws, our freedom, our government, AND WORST OF ALL, OUR AWESOME CONSTITUTION WHICH IS THE ENVY OF THE REST OF THE WORLD!
    This is the only country that I know of, besides the Great Wall of China, that has to build huge walls to keep people OUT! The Most fences , like the BERLIN WALL, ARE TO KEEP PEOPLE IN, NOT OUT!
    In the past, people came here not just to be free, but to be able to work and to make a better life in a FREE country, Many early immigrants got off those sailing ships and kissed the 'freedom ground. (possibly just solid, not moving ground! ) but they came to WORK, and make a better life for their families, and the only thing those hands got was a chance for the FREEDOM to choose how to work, worship, and make a better life for themselves and their families, there was NO welfare, Just a the opportunity to work hard!

  16. Plan to protect their hateful corrupted leftards propagandists of cnn msn cnbc … etc.. those who are diffaming, manipulating, pushing insidious traitorous narratives,…
    not making professional journalism or investigations .

  17. It's hilarious how they're arguing against Bernie! Bernie is talking about ENFORCING LAWS which are ALREADY on the books!! And they're arguing against that!? They're conservative???! LMFAO😅😄😅😄😃😂😂😂😂😂😃😂

  18. SOCIALIST SWINE BERNIE SANDERS USING YOUR DONATIONS TO RUIN YOUR LIVES. KEEP GIVING STUPID DEMOCRATS THAT IS ALL YOU DESERVE. TO BE TREATED LIKE DRONES WORKING FOR HIS WEALTH.

  19. Let the market determine which Media outlet survives. CNN is going away as ratings drop because of fake news. Print the news and let readers determine which is true. Taxpayer funded news outlets is a kin to socializim.

  20. This is what Justin Trudeau is doing in Canada. Giving hundreds of millions of tax dollars to the "news" organizations of his choice.

  21. Bernie would like the North Korean press if he were President. You media guys will push what I want or I will feed you to the dogs. Just imagine Bernie in charge of what the citizens get to see or read? Gives me shivers.

  22. The Brady bunch format never works in television for sensible discussions ,the only thing it's good for is if you like your television opinion programs to descend into a out of control screaming match ,I thought CNN were the only ones that aired this type of pantomime.

  23. The news is NOT protected by the constitution under most of their formats. THE guidelines of the strict constitution interpretation nullifies them for following foriegn interest and not reporting the deep state excess .

  24. all this lib want free everything who going to pay for the 1 1/0 no is tax payer mean time politico person fill their wallets

  25. Democratic socialists like Bernie have a habit of accusing others of doing exactly what they themselves are doing. So, when he points the finger and says people shouldn't be able to control media and punish their enemies…it's because he wants to control media and punish his enemies…

  26. But the press is not free when they tell you lies and propaganda and the american Public does not get serve by it. This is why Donald Trump attacks the practice of fake news and Propaganda. Not The right of free press.

  27. We don't have a free press!! We don't. We simply are lie to by the press every day and night and never get the real events that are going on. It is all a propaganda Operation to hide the truth and squeeze the alternate universe. Wake up people!

  28. There are some Extremely good reporters out there! They work at EPOCH Times, One American New Network OANN, and some at FOX News. I have even followed a few people that do their own research and report this findings AND links to where they get all their information! There are some good ones… Just that there are as many Bad ones that have a very long reach and are pure Liars in the MSM! Those reporters are acting AGAINST America and it's Citizens Best interest and should be held Accountable for their lies! Everyone in America knows this… They are fooling no one!

  29. Be nice if it was a law again that you could only report substantiated facts instead of opinion pieces for each party.

  30. Paid liers all. Bernie is right. 90% of outlets are far left activists. No one is talking about the government funding the press, just cancelling out the protections giving freedom from libel and slander. The press is not supposed to be gatekeepers, like they all seem to think they are. The 2nd lady is the silliest, saying we have freedom to speak, when Silicon Valley is the biggest censors of all.

  31. Yeap that is the socialist way so you will never criticize the government. They will tell you what to publish and you cannot ever exposed their crooked behavior. I won’t vote for you Bernie. But I’m all for punishing the media. So sick and tired of their hate.

  32. Thanks to the democrats and Obama and CIA and FBI the media journalists has become a weapon to smear and lie and frame innocent people , their Jussie tv ! Their a Hoax machine to sway votes and smear/frame people and pollute minds with lies !

  33. Lol, the media is getting scared because not Trump nor Bernie like them.
    The fall of CNN, FOX, MSNBC, etc is coming.
    Maybe we'll get actual news again instead of these daily lies.

  34. babbling barnie is like hearing gears flying apart in a transmission. he`s kind of like listening to interviews with crazy Charles Manson. scary old man.

  35. Hypocrite …he is …Los Angeles, Paris, London…Once great cities. LA a sanctuary city … full of illegals who have invaded our borders looking for promised handouts.

    These cities are Now all shitholes. Flooded with homeless, standing in line waiting for a FREE TENT…

    Coming to your town very soon. Run by Democrat Socialist

  36. Uhhh what Bernie is trying to say is that media outlets like FOX, CNN, MSNBC etc are OWNED by corporations such as Viacom, and wealthy billionaires like Rupert Murdoch. These same corporations and billionaires donate thousands, sometimes millions, of dollars to political campaigns. Murdoch donated thousands to establishment politicians like Hilary Clinton and Obama so that they could continue to own the news narrative. Bernie wants to end the power of these CORPORATIONS AND POLITICAL interests. In other words, media today is currently being dictated by politicians pushing their agenda on naive people who believe these "journalists". A simple google search will confirm what I just wrote.

  37. 6 individual companies run all of the MSM. Those same companies sponsor the " news" Every social issue, endless wars, health care big oil, climate change, lack of transparency in our democracy, all has a direct correlation to our present world event's

  38. Did any of these people even listen? If government wanted to allow 1 on 1 fair fights and ban gangs from jumping individuals by the logic they are going by, let the gangs be gangs free choice. The market is not free. Many who want a free market only want to be free to prey on people. Why then can we not be free from the market and those predators?

  39. First frame is exactly what's wrong with the 'news': five wealthy talking heads ready to give biased disinformation.

  40. Why should we believe these buffoons who get paid by the wealthy to keep their mouth shut, and keep brainwashing the public. Capitalism is killing America.
