Last month, “The Benjamin Dixon Show” discussed the strong bias that Chris Matthews has consistently shown against Bernie Sanders by focusing exclusively on trying to smear Sanders’ Democratic Socialist label.
During an interview with Hillary Clinton, he tried to get the candidate to agree with him when he said that labeling oneself a Socialist is a bad thing – of course he ignored the strong difference between a Socialist and a Democratic Socialist. Clinton fumbled, trying not to alienate Sanders’ base, especially when so many young Democrats view Socialism in a favorable light. Matthews, though, declared that he would never want to be labeled a socialist.
Dixon argues that people like Matthews, Clinton, and even Debbie Wasserman Schultz are more obsessed with power than staying true to real progressive Democrat values.
