Sanders: No surprise 'establishment' Washington Post doesn't like me


"I am not greatly beloved by the economic establishment, by Wall Street, by the big money interests, or by the major media of this country including the Washington Post," Sanders said on CNN's "State of the Union."

The editorial, published last week, said Sanders is peddling "fiction” to progressive voters.

“Mr. Sanders is not a brave truth-teller,” the editorial stated. "He is a politician selling his own brand of fiction to a slice of the country that eagerly wants to buy it."

Sanders said on Sunday he's being attacked because he's too ambitious, noting campaign proposals to expand Social Security and reform healthcare.

Bernie Sanders Campaign Signs Up More Recruits in Tampa

Zach Exley has been working for the Bernie Sanders campaign since last July as a senior adviser on digital operations. He previously worked on campaigns for Howard Dean, John Kerry, and Barack Obama‘s 2008 effort, but says they all pale in comparison to what the Sanders campaign is doing this cycle with phone volunteers.

Speaking at the North University Area Community Development Center in Tampa Saturday morning, Exley said, “This calling program is literally a hundred times bigger than anything any campaign has had at this stage of the campaign.”

“I know,” he added, “because I worked on this same program for Obama in the ’08 general election, and our numbers are bigger than what we had every day.”

A month ago, Sanders organizers began coming to places like Tampa for the first time to start recruiting supporters to volunteer their time to contact voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. Exley says now tens of thousands of people are making calls every day, with an average of 100,000-200,000 per day. That’s barely scratching the surface, he said, which is why Exley and an assistant were in the Tampa Bay area on a three-day, five-city campaign to recruit more people to host phone bank events at their homes or offices. Their goal is to reach voters in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and the states that will vote on March 1, also known as Super Tuesday.

First on CNN: Chong wants Sanders for next 'commander in kush'(video at link)


Tommy Chong loves Bernie Sanders, and he describes that affection for the insurgent candidate in a way only Tommy Chong can.

"Bernie's like a kush, like the best kind of weed you can get, because he's the answer to all our problems," Chong told CNN this week.

To prove it, he's releasing a public service announcement supporting Sanders for president rife with the tongue-in-cheek marijuana jokes that ran throughout the "Cheech and Chong" comedies of the late '70s.

"To me, Bernie seems more suited for the country," Chong said. "There was some writer from the Washington Post who said that Bernie would be a disaster because he's a socialist. Well, people don't realize that ... in the last eight years, socialism is not a dirty word anymore."
