CBS Pushes Sanders to Drag Biden Left: 'Ban on Fracking,' 'National Rent Control'


[See NewsBusters for more.] CBS This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil on Thursday lobbied Bernie Sanders to drag Joe Biden to the left, touting ideas such as a “ban on fracking” and “national rent control.” Offering no hint that these ideas could be extreme, Dokoupil asked the socialist if Biden “has promised you anything?” In an exclusive interview, the first since Sanders dropped out, the co-host pressed, “I made a little list of some of the things that have been central to your campaign and I hope you'll let me know which of these you think could be part of a Biden administration. Universal health care is a biggie. Free college for all. Canceled college debt. National rent control. A ban on fracking. A wealth tax. Marijuana legalization. A 50 percent reduction in the prison population.”
