  1. I don't understand why Bernie would choose to go on a network that continuously pumps out negative stuff about him, can someone explain that to me.

    I'm just confused, there are so many online media sources that would love to shine a spotlight on how great he is, yet he keeps on going back to establishment media sources to get pummelled.

  2. Stop being a jerk to Bernie! You’re just scared of what he has in mind for the country! To me, he will transform our country into the right direction and I know it will! It’s time to end the absurdity of greed and corruption ONCE AND FOR ALL! #Bernie2020

  3. Bernie Sanders……. GET out of the RACE…….you can NOT handle the STRESS……..
    Notice how you are NOT YELLING anymore!
    Just because you had a STENT…….does NOT mean you do NOT have more BLOCKED ARTERIES……YOU are a HIGH RISK…..too OLD, HEALTH, and STAMINA!!!

    Just DO NOT give your campaign money to HILLARY like you SCREWED your supporters last time!

    We DO NOT TRUST YOUR JUDGEMENT especially as PRESIDENT!
    America will NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY!!!

  4. Someone tell Bernie to do his job and call out Warren flip flopping on campaign finance. If not Warren will solidify her support and have a base that can challenge the political revolution.

    No need for the nicety. Do what Obama did attack fiercely in campaign and have dinner later to soften the blow. This next debate is Bernie last chance to stop Warren from stealing his thunder.

    At least he should attack her because he knows she will be defeated by Trump. Or he has the best shot to win against Trump.

  5. Disgusting that a Comcast owned network like NBC has the guts to make a full interview with a candidate and then only upload 2 minutes. This type of interference in the US electoral process should be the main issue of next weeks DNC debate, not stupid Russiagate

  6. I am old enough to recall and remember when Dr. King was called a Communist in the media and by people against him. They are doing the same to Bernie.

  7. If Bernie is not able to continue, may the next popular candidate take over his wishes and fulfill his hopes and dreams

  8. Bernie is exactly what this country needs he is for the people especially the working class Americans are crazy if they don't make him our next president God bless Bernie for everything he does

  9. Keep going Bernie! The media will smear you I jope you turn up the heat Trump sryle on corporate owned dems…hint Lying Liz WARren

  10. Bernie is strong and the love of public through the greatness of his work, will heal him and his loss in his family, as the resistance against the insane current system grows. He and his work on its own is a legend, and the old model of corporatocracy is already dead. Hard workers like us working to survive until this model 🙁 is out for good 🙂
    The social democratic system is the only choice towards freedom, and true wisdom where the public can finally enjoy the fruits of education, is peace and evolution on a productive way, compared to what is currently is going on

  11. I m 38 and Latino! And yes he’s our # 1 choice for president Bernie 2020. We got your back my friend keep fighting the system with us

  12. Go Bernie! I will be cheering you on during the next debate. You're the one we can count on to get money out of politics!

  13. White People shouldn’t vote for Bernie.Warren is a better choice for White Values.Besides , Bernie is a jinx
    He has taken millions from his fan base and delivered defeat after defeat with zero..absolutely ZERO results.

  14. FDR got us out of the depression in a wheelchair, there is a VP appointed in case the president is no longer able to serve and he's running against someone who is close to the same age so physical health means very little, mental health on the otherhand is vital and that is where Bernie soars he's as sharp as a tack!

  15. Boo NBC and MSNBC and the Washington Post and NYT. C"mon. His campaign was transparent, honest, forthright. Yet you again and again find fault with Bernie. You even find fault with his heart attack. Why don't you report EVEN ONCE thst Bernie raised the most money, the most. The… MOST last quarter. More thsn Warren. And why don't you report that more people from the states Donald won in 2016 would vote for him than Warren and Biden combined?

  16. Bernie, I love you but please become a Democrat. They will never let an Independent become their nominee. We will end up with Trump again. Force them to show their true colors. Force them to transform or die. Do it for us.

  17. That’s why I wanted this to be confidential and not reported.

    Now all the disingenuous media outlets will run with this nonstop and act like they care about his health because they want voters to turn away from Bernie.

    So annoying and deeply frustrating…Why Bernie and not Biden or someone who we don’t care about.

  18. You were already downplayed because you are to old and now you have a heart attack, this is just the primary, even if you best the other noms and Hillary doesn't come back for a 4th try, it's still a year out with stress and Trump will not hold back on you. THEN you still have to run the country for at least 4 years, meeting with world leaders, flying around the world, negotiating policies, fighting Congress for legislation, dealing with the issue of the day, all while being a strong leader, not a wimp like Obama.

    You are a frail old man, I get that young people like your ideas because it means they don't have to work as hard as older generations, but M4A is not happening, you are not just shutting down private insurance and signing up 350 million people to M4A especially when you don't know how much it will cost but still lie and say we will save money. Is it 30 trillion or 40 trillion in the first 10 years, you didn't know in August and you still don't now.

  20. No Harry I am part of the Public and it did not feel like there was a "cover up". This is an allegation you and the swine that call themselves media made up -they were simply waiting to get the facts before putting them out, something YOU should learn how to do! You are nothing but a skunk!!!

  21. These negative comments are pathetic, yet very telling. You degenerates have no answer for Bernie's politics so you are left hoping for some health problems to save you. To the contrary, the man has stated that he has no intentions of giving up on his run, and if, god willing, Bernie's health recovers, his supporters will only be more committed to his campaign. But hey, why let that stop you from continuing to show who you truly are.

  22. I hope he gets cancer. I don't want the old Bolshevik to die from a heart attack. I want him to suffer. He's bled the American taxpayer for too long.

  23. Look at all the people concern trolling in the comments. You don't care about Bernie's well being, you just want him out because you know he's in a very good position to win. If your candidate can't win with him in the race, that means your candidate is a** water.

    10.Elizabeth Warren Declares War on Lobbying, Hires Lobbyist One Day Later
    https://news.yahoo.com/amphtml/elizabeth-warren-declares-war-lobbying-112400418.html

    Here is my gripe with Warren:
    She can’t call herself a progressive…

    ❌ When her record on foreign policy is poor.
    ❌ When she says she’ll take corporate money in the general election.
    ❌ When she voted for Trump’s military budget increases more than once.
    ❌ When she says she’s open to a middle ground approach in regards to universal healthcare. She won’t take on the insurance companies.
    ❌ When she applauded Trump for saying “America will never be Socialist”. Nobody is even trying to be a socialist country. It’s the sentiment that she knew what he was referring to. He was referring to progressives and she stood up and clapped for him.
    ❌ When she endorsed Hillary over Bernie. She could have endorsed him early in the race. Instead of waiting when it was clear Bernie wasn’t going to win. She after admitted the race was rigged.

    If Bernie gets an A as far as being progressive, someone like Biden would get an F and Warren would get a C-. Which is nothing to brag about. But because the media wants to prop her up because she won’t cause as much damage to the Status Quo.

    ✅ I’ll vote for the candidate with real conviction.
    ✅ I’ll vote the candidate with a proven record.
    ✅ I’ll vote for the candidate that doesn’t do what’s popular all the time but does what’s right all the time.

  25. As soon as Bernie explains the factors more important than perfect health they cut him off. So here are 3 of those factors:
    WHERE IS THE CANDIDATE GETTING THEIR CAMPAIGN MONEY FROM?
    IS THE CANDIDATE NEW TO WHAT THEY'RE SAYING? ARE THEY JUST PRETENDING FOR VOTES?
    HOW DOES THE CANDIDATE'S CAMPAIGN SPEECH MATCH THEIR VOTING RECORD?

    WHERE IS THE CANDIDATE GETTING THEIR CAMPAIGN MONEY FROM? We all understand that we prioritize the financial interests & instructions of those who pay us money. THIS is why our politicians serve their wealthiest donors, who determine most laws which serve corporations, and not ordinary people.

    Bernie's the only candidate whose fundraising is only from small donors & does not accept big donor money in both the primary & general. He's been fighting for working people his whole life, not just campaign time. Bernie's big donors are us!

    IS THE CANDIDATE NEW TO WHAT THEY'RE SAYING? ARE THEY JUST PRETENDING FOR VOTES? Bernie's been a people's champion for the longest by far, even when there's no campaign for president, is the original the other candidates now copy from (Medicare for All, Taxing the richest, College for All, Getting big donor money out of politics etc).

    HOW DOES THE CANDIDATE'S CAMPAIGN SPEECH MATCH THEIR VOTING RECORD? Many candidates say one thing during the campaign while their voting record says another. For example, many pretend to be against increasing the military budget (which is already bigger than the next 8 nations' militaries COMBINED) yet come voting time they vote in favor of increasing that bloated budget. Bernie voted AGAINST increasing Trump's military budget. Warren & others voted FOR it. That money is sorely needed here at home.

  26. Just 2 years of President Bernard Sanders will bring more progress for this country than the past 10 years (Big donor money out of politics, Quality affordable comprehensive healthcare, eliminate student debt, Green New Deal jobs program, etc etc)

  27. Honestly I would rather see Bernie take mitch McConnell job's. That's where the real power lies. Most Americans overlook that

  28. Eisenhower (64) had a heart attack in 1955. Won the 1956 election. Mick Jagger (76) & Paul McCartney (77) had stents. Still touring. Unless there was substantial damage to Bernie's heart, he'll be 100%.

  29. Should Bernie be standing in one place for three hours? Nobody should be standing in one place for three hours. This is the same as the people who have circulatory difficulties when flying. However there is no reason why Bernie will not be able to stand as much as the others on the stage.

  30. Doing their best to smear the Bern. A lot is at stake in this election – income inequality, campaign finance, privacy, climate change, and the media will promote their sponsors and worsen the problem.

  31. He'd have the best health care on the planet, but also the most stressful job.
    Very glad he's ok buy it's not just about now, it's about the Office.
    Any Dem president, especially a farther left one, will face enormous challenges from both Democrats, let alone complete obstruction (again) from what's left of Republicans.

  32. And he's right about getting money out of politics it is a dirty game, no politician should be working for a rich donor or corporation interests and not the American people's interest at heart, it should be a vacation in their psyche not a way to get extremely rich. just read his manifesto on it makes a lot of sense you can see it on his website.

  33. Tulsi Gabbard has proven trustworthy and she is saying that the DNC and the Corporate Media are both trying to HIJACK the Election again! This is an excerpt from the National Review "Democratic Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) announced Thursday that she is “seriously considering” a boycott of the upcoming Democratic debate on Oct. 15, alleging that “the DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process.”

    “They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten,” Gabbard said in the statement.

    Gabbard’s campaign, which is currently polling at just over half a percentage point, has focused in recent weeks on grassroot efforts in early primary voting states.

    “There are so many of you who I’ve met in Iowa and New Hampshire who have expressed to me how frustrated you are that the DNC and corporate media are essentially trying to usurp your role as voters in choosing who our Democratic nominee will be,” Gabbard says in the announcement, before stating that she will announce her final decision in the coming days.

    Gabbard qualified for the upcoming debate but missed out on the last one this past month, after reaching the donor threshold but falling two DNC-approved polls short of clearing the public support threshold. Gabbard’s campaign slammed the committee’s decision-making, arguing that the standards were arbitrary and lacked transparency.

    “It creates a lack of faith and trust in the process,” Gabbard told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in August. “… Really what [the voters] see is a small group of really powerful political elites, the establishment making decisions that serve their interests and maintaining that power while the rest of us are left outside. The American people are left behind.”

    Gabbard was the most-searched candidate after the first and second Democratic debates earlier this year.

  34. Wish you well Sir Bernie Sanders should be President because He fights for all of us even though you might not understand that..

  35. Oh, COME ON. You asked him if the heart attack will hurt him and didn't even show his answer! WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING AT??

  36. With the incident that happened with Bernie, it is more than ever USA needs universal health care no two ways about it.

  37. Age is not a problem. Integrity is what is most important, and no other candidate has the Integrity Bernie has. Bernie Sanders 2020

  38. Honestly, as someone who is trying to decide between Bernie and Warren, I have actually begun to lean towards him in the last week. I think his progressive wealth tax and his plan to get money out of politics are clearly far better than hers. And she has been saying odd things about medicare for all…. this heart issue does not effect my opinion. Top 3 candidates are all in their 70s.

  39. Hey Harry, you‘re too old. I want you to quit your job and so you can be replaced with a younger, more alluring, man with a connection to Harvard or Yale. MSNBC thinks so too, and you could die at anytime because, let‘s face it, your time on this Earth can no longer be measured in years, old man.

    Keep your words short and sweet, Harry, because you may have to eat them, you corporate puppet.

  40. I haven't been watching much corporate media lately, as it's gotten so bad and there are quite a few good alternatives now (Kyle Kulinski, Jimmy Dore, David Doel). Seeing NBC do their [biased, corporate] thing here only reinforces that.
    Go Bernie!

  41. And now the entitled media will get butt hurt because after his heart attack he didn’t immediately notify the biased mainstream media of exactly what happened. But, Joe Biden and Warren get a pass on everything.
