By Any Means Necessary Discussion of Upcoming Bernie-Biden Debate (3/13/2020)

Sunday Debate Crucial for Sanders as National COVID-19 Outbreak Looms

In this segment of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Jim Kavanagh, a political analyst and contributor to Counterpunch and, where you can read his piece “The Party’s Over: Bernie’s Last Dance With the Dems," to talk about the upcoming Democratic debate between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, whether Sanders has to go on the offensive and point out Biden's habit of taking liberties with the truth if he wants to stay in the race, why the COVID-19 outbreak represents a key opportunity for Sanders to highlight the need for Medicare for All, why Sanders' reluctance to hit back at other Democrats may represent one of his greatest weaknesses, why recent exhortations by establishment types to maintain Democratic 'party unity' seem to ring so hollow, whether the momentum in the race could turn once more if Biden commits another of his signature gaffes in the debate, and why many media personalities are now using fear of the national Coronavirus crisis to call for the debate to scrapped altogether.
