Bernie Sanders: Unfiltered?

by

3 comments

Sen. Bernie Sanders and filmmaker Robert Greenwald have teamed up to create "Senator Sanders Unfiltered" — a roughly two-minute online "TV show" in which Sanders offers an unscripted take on major issues facing the country.

The inaugural episode of "Senator Sanders Unfiltered" was launched this afternoon. In the future, each new episode will air on Thursday.

While viewers in other parts of the country may be hearing and seeing Sanders for the first time, we in Vermont have to ask: When is Bernie ever truly "filtered"?

Each episode begins with a TwitVid question from a viewer. This week's question asked how Sanders felt about Wall Street bankers seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses from taxpayer bailout money.

Guess how he answered?

"I think the greed on Wall Street is absolutely out of control," said Sanders. "These people have no shame. Remember, this handful of Wall Street speculators are precisely the people who caused the greatest economic downturn and recession since the 1930s."
