Unauthorized Disclosure

Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola, hosts of the "Unauthorized Disclosure" weekly podcast, discuss what unfolded in the Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, days before the Nevada Caucuses.   

This is the show's first video broadcast, and we're excited to be able to do this. We plan to do more videos, particularly for patrons, in the future.

During the episode, Rania and Kevin focus attention on the final question of the debate, where Senator Bernie Sanders was the only one who mentioned superdelegates and endorsed democracy—the idea that if a candidate has the most delegates they should be the Democratic Party's nominee.   

They share hare how delighted they were to see all the candidates absolutely hammer former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg. His debate performance certainly undermined the "electability" argument for him.   

Later in the broadcast, Rania and Kevin highlight Bloomberg's answer on his role in racist stop-and-frisk policing. They also lay out the way in which a "feud" between the Culinary Workers Union leadership and the Bernie Sanders campaign was manufactured by interests, which want to maintain the status quo for health care.
