Bernie Sanders is hosting a national town hall meeting to discuss Medicare for All on January 23 at 7:00pm Eastern. Have no worries if you are unable to attend the Washington D.C. meeting in person. It will be aired on Facebook Live by three leading progressive digital outlets: NowThis, ATTN:, and The Young Turks. In fact, the only way to watch the broadcast is online.

Why the Internet-only venue? Mainstream media networks were not eager to televise the national meeting, even though it will explore a topic of vital interest to most Americans. With that door closed, master strategist Sanders moved to Plan B and partnered with his independent digital allies to livestream the Medicare for All meeting.

The Young Turks break it down, in the video above.

Does this important digital event herald a future bypass of mainstream media, at least, on the part of progressive leaders? I don’t know. However, Bernie was certainly the trendsetter when he refused corporate donations for his 2016 presidential campaign; all the Progressive Candidates are following in his footsteps.


The political revolution is on!
