How Sen. Bernie Sanders sidestepped corporate media to talk to one million people directly

(NATIONAL) – In the old days if you wanted to talk to one million people at one time, you had to be on television – assuming TV wanted you on TV's airwaves.

Then this thing called the Internet happened and last Tuesday Sen. Bernie Sanders used it for a special event: the first nationally broadcast town hall meeting to take place outside the confines of television (e.g., “corporate media”) where Sanders spoke to an estimated one million people directly.

“This is, I think, kind of revolutionary, is it not?” Sanders said in a pre-town hall interview. “This could be the very first step in bringing millions of people into serious discussion about the serious issues facing our country.”

According to a report by InTheseTimes.com, “The majority of the 90-minute town hall focused on laying out the pragmatic case for single payer (health insurance): It costs less and it works better. The United States spends about 17 percent of GDP on healthcare, versus roughly 9 to 11 percent in other G7 industrialized democracies. But for all its spending, the United States lags far behind in outcomes.”

The 'Medicare for All' bill that Sanders introduced in the Senate last year now has 16 Democratic cosponsors. If passed into law it would phase in an expansion of Medicare over four years, reducing the age of eligibility each year by a decade. Polls have shown that roughly 60 percent of Americans support such a system,” said the report.

Sanders also mentioned this about health insurance in general: “Most Americans do not know that in virtually every other country on earth, not only is health care considered a right, with limited out of pocket or no out of pocket expenses, but the same thing in many cases applies to higher education or to child care.”
