While Hillary Clinton is running for office the New York Times is worthless for political news. Read it for recipes and fashion news.
"VATICAN CITY — On Thursday night, Bernie Sanders was standing under the lights in Brooklyn, being pressed by journalists and his rival at the Democratic debate, Hillary Clinton, to provide details about his often-vague policy ideas.
Less than 12 hours later, and more than 4,000 miles away, near the residence of Pope Francis, Mr. Sanders was basking in the attention of appreciative figures from around the world and fielding questions he seemed to enjoy."
The Guardian wrote an article that does not assume the readers are Clinton supporters that work on Wall Street.
The Guardian's article of Bernie Sanders at the Vatican is their lead article.
"Bernie Sanders launched one of the most powerful indictments of modern capitalism of his campaign in the Vatican on Friday, saying that the greatest challenge facing the world was a moral imperative to redirect “our efforts and vision to the common good”.
The sweeping remarks were delivered in the shadow of St Peter’s dome, about an hour after the Democratic presidential candidate touched down in Rome for a short stay in the Eternal City to take part in a Vatican-sponsored academic conference...
But his most effusive praise was reserved for Pope Francis, whom he heralded for raising the “most profound issues” of the day – from the problems of the dispossessed, to the loneliness of the elderly who cannot afford their medication, to the challenge of climate change – with a “vision and articulateness”, while others chose to ignore the issues.
The pope, he said, had tapped into an “instinctual” belief held by many that there was something “profoundly wrong” with society today.
'I have been enormously impressed with Pope Francis speaking out and his visionary views about creating a moral economy, an economy that works for all people, not just the people on top,' Sanders told a group of reporters who had gathered just outside the Vatican gates.
'And what he has said over and over again: we cannot allow the market just to do what the market does, that is not acceptable.”
“Speculation, illicit financial flows, environmental destruction, and the weakening of the rights of workers is far more severe than it was a quarter century ago,” Sanders said. “Financial excesses, indeed widespread financial criminality on Wall Street, played a direct role in causing the world’s worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.”
Chances are there won't be much mention of Bernie Sanders at the Vatican from American News sources. That is a demonstration of how incredibly corrupt our political system has become.
