The decaying US liberal class (w/ Chris Hedges)
Lee sits down with two journalists on VIP today. Chris Hedges is a renowned war correspondent, RT host, and author. He came into the studio to discuss his latest article on TruthDig about the 2020 presidential election and the decisions being made by the US’ corporate state as it backs Joe Biden. He has found himself disappointed in Bernie Sanders for failing to hold the DNC to account for their blatant rigging of the election, and he thinks Bernie should’ve left the party after the drama in 2016. They also discuss the war economy, the US’ weakness to the coronavirus pandemic, and the persecution of Julian Assange.
Jordan Chariton is a journalist and the founder of Status Coup, an independent news group, who has reported on the ground from the DNC primaries in 2016 and 2020. He also has been one of the main journalists reporting on the lead in the water in Flint, Michigan. They discuss his firsthand view of how the DNC has suppressed the progressive vote with dirty tricks like closing polling places without sufficient warning to voters, building corporate media narratives about Sanders’ weaknesses, and more ploys to undermine the movement behind Sanders.
