Bernie Sanders SHREDS The Media Over Their Obsession With Howard Schultz
During his interview with CBS This Morning where he announced he plans to run for President, Bernie Sanders also took a shot at the media for their obsession with former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. Sanders said that the media is only giving him a platform because the guy is a billionaire, but that he really has no substance whatsoever to offer on the issues. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains why Bernie is 100% correct in his analysis.

Yesterday on CBS this morning, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president of the United States. But everybody already knew that, right? We, we knew that he made the announcement. We saw that he raised over $4 million in a single day. And we know that a lot of people are excited. There's also a lot of establishment types that are super pissed off that he's running. But nonetheless, in his interview on CBS this morning, he did something that I had been waiting for any candidate to do and it was absolutely phenomenal to see somebody called a media out like this and what he did. And we'll show you the clip. And just a second, he called out the media for their obsession with billionaire, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. Take a look.
He would not run as an independent if the Democrats moderate, uh,
nice. But you raise a good thing. Why is, how would Schultz on every television solution in this country? Why are you quoting Howard Schultz? Because he was a billionaire. All right. There are a lot of people I know personally who work hard for a living and make 40 $50,000 a year. We know a lot more about politics than role do respect us, Mr. Schultz, but because we have a corrupt political system, anybody who was a billionaire who can throw a lot of TV ads on television suddenly becomes very, very credible. So what Mr Schultz, what is he blackmailing the Democratic Party? If you don't nominate Bernie Sanders, he's locking to run. Well, I don't think we should succumb to that kind of blackmail.
The other reason is that he represents an argument that some people make, which is if you're worried about Donald Trump, the democratic party to win voters in various parts of the country needs to pick somebody who is
not so radical. That's also what his theory rail, I think is deeper theory is, Hey, I'm a billionaire. Leave me alone and let me make as much money as I can without paying my fair share of taxes and let me continue to have undue political fluids, which you weren't putting me. All right, here's a billion or no one's ever heard of this guy or not many people have you used the billionaire is thinking of running for president. Something is a very famous guy that's, that is a problem with our political system.
