AUDIO: ‘Left, Right & Center’: GOP Hopefuls Compete on Party Values; Bernie Surges
On this week’s edition of KCRW’s “Left, Right & Center,” Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer says he sees Bernie Sanders as the only interesting candidate in the 2016 election, while the others praise Donald Trump.
“Hillary Clinton is the Goldman Sachs candidate,” Scheer says. “Let’s not kid ourselves.”
Scheer is joined by Josh Barro of The New York Times moderating from the center, Rich Lowry of National Review on the right and Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report as special guest.
