MEET THE DEMOCRATIC 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES (Update will appear 4/9/19)
We need to stick together for these next four years (and longer, but these years are critical). This isn’t about winning or losing, Democrat or Republican, urban or rural, milennial or baby boomer (I’m neither in fact), but the time for passivity is long over. This election was a farce. The Electoral College must be reformed or abandoned as no longer relevant.
These are political resources that I rely on for information. As far as I’v seen there has been no fake news promulgated from these sites or organizations. Some of them do have some opinion writing and editorials, but they are clear that they are just that.
MIchael Bechloss – historian
Charles Blow – journalist with the New York Times
Sen. Cory Booker
The Carter Center
CNN – Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon
Stephen Colbert (satirist/comedian)
Committee to Protect Journalists
Rep. Elijah Cummings
Sen. Al Franken
Sen. Tim Kaine
Rep. John Lewis
Rachel Maddow – yes, she’s a liberal, but she also explains things really well, in excruciating detail so you can understand it. She’s also a journalist and makes her opinions clear as her opinions and not as facts.
Seth Meyers (A Closer Look segment)
The New York Times
John Oliver (satirist/comedian)
Planned Parenthood Action
Robert Reich, former Labor Secretary. Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley
Sen. Bernie Sanders Facebook – if you were a Bernie supporter or if you weren’t
Sen. Bernie Sanders
Connie Schultz – Ohio journalist
Southern Poverty Law Center
Vox – excellent for explaining an issue in the news.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren
The Washington Post
White House (although with it controlled by Mr. Trump and his team, I don’t know how reliable this will be.)
