1. Would you please share a few words re: what this is about?

 

A little context would be most helpful.

2. I should know, and I'm not sure either.

Whatever it is, the channel is always great.

4. It has started.

John Ellis started a channel called Bernie2016TV. Now he has a news show every day
at 9 am. He just said this is nothing special but is reporting on the news he didn't have time
for this morning as it dealt with global warming. I like watching him.

5. This guy drives me crazy, he's so disorganized. BUT...

...he had so much great information to convey! For instance, he shows screen shots of two articles about the Sanders vs Clinton primary at this point, that I really, really want to read, but he provides not a clue as to the authors or sources. He provides an informal newscast at 9 am (I'm not sure how many or which days a week) and in this broadcast talks a lot about the Ap for Democracy, which sounds like a thrilling new, independent and direct action news organization, which will put us right into the middle of legislative decision-making and give us a voice with legislators. I want to know more! But he gets distracted trying to put on some vids that he can't get to work. I like his informal style but he goes way to far with it, into chaos. I get annoyed. I switch him off.

Also, I think he's wrong about Stephen Colbert. Colbert gives Susan Sarandon a great platform--his show--to recover from the abuse she suffered with all that Brockian Trump business (as if she would vote for Trump--Gawd!) and she uses this gift effectively to explain why she can't support Hillary, though they once were friends. Yeah, Colbert mocks her a little bit about worshiping Bernie Sanders, but it's good-natured, it's the sort of thing he's always doing to his guests, and she laughs about it gracefully and enjoys it. (And the audience loves her!)

No, our Real News Host (have never been able to catch his name--that's another bit of disorganization--he never says his name) takes Colbert all wrong and doesn't realize what a favor Colbert is doing for Sarandon. I was so glad to see her on his show--so glad that is still undaunted. She is one courageous woman! When she stood up on the Iraq War, it was so heartening to me, and I'm sure to many others! A courageous woman! A great woman! And a great actress!

6. He's on every day at 9 am pacific. He's in Portland, Oregon.

His name is John Ellis. He started this youtube show as Bernie 2016 TV last spring/summer.
Then he added the channel Political Revolution. I know what you are saying. If you signed up for
google you could tell him in the chatroom. I've never signed up. But he does try
to pay attention to the chat. He's not a professional. He's kind of learning on the fly. I learn a lot
from him. Sometimes I don't know where he gets his videos/info. When I can't listen live
I listen at a later time. He gets very excited at times and very depressed at times. A lot of highs and
lows. All just so very human.
