  1. I have to confess to not watching much TV but I never knew this woman existed before seeing her in this video. I didn't know that she ever was on TV and after hearing her talk I can't figure out why she was ever on TV. Who the hell is she? What is she supposed to be famous for? Is she just another liberal blabber expert?

  2. I really like Naomi Klein, and agree with what she is saying about Trump being the culmination of our 2 party politics.

  3. I wish TyT would listen and learn from her and what she is saying here. Look at your own behavior and live as you preach.

  4. We are the Dems who are New Deal Franklin Roosevelt types. The establishment hates us and will always hate us. Bernie is only trying to take us back to our roots. Staying with the Democrats is a waste of time. We need another Party to represent us.

  5. Same reason Noam Chomsky hasn't been on tv since the 80's. Corporate America doesn't like people telling the truth about it.

  6. MSM don't want an honest, intellect on their MK Ultra rectangled box. Hollywood know what YOU want. Repeated dribble for maximum propaganda in the users mind.
    Naomi's my hero!

  7. Maybe because many people learned that she is working for the wrong kind of green? The Rothschild legacy of treachery makes people seriously weary of those who work for them as was proven with her "help" in Bolivia. Shame on her for helping NGO's like the Rothschild's, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet etc…( the OIL-garchy) in hijacking other countries ability to self perseverance while dealing with their own success on environmental matters. She asked to learn how and what was done in Bolivia to make it so successful just to turn around and back stab them, sabotaging everything they worked hard for. These 1 percenters claim they are the only ones who can deal with climate change and environmental disasters when they are the ones who monopolized the oil industry making them billionaires and the architects of all the disasters we are now facing. No one trusts them, nor should they. Naomi is just the front man/woman for these leeches who now want to monopolize the green movement, controlling ALL resources globally. Enough already.

  8. The GOP and DNC Democrats are closely affiliated with major media in the United States. The former is a far right party, the latter is a solidly right wing party with a far right foreign policy amenable to abortion rights. –We shouldn't expect two right wing parties and their media arms to be even remotely interested in having Naomi Klein on. Klein is fundamentally opposed to everything they're trying to foist on us.

    This is the latest form of censorship. Corporations buy politicians, who in turn pass legislation allowing the rich to become so much more rich that a guy like Amazon owner Jeff Bezos can buy The Washington Post for little more than couch cushion money and turn it in 2016 into an arm of the Clinton campaign.

    Six conglomerates now own something like 95{110202e4b0545ba7d82f832dfdef697f1165b8ffb4f37afa9b7f9a509eaa0583} of mainstream media, so there's no competition to air or publish a voice like Naomi Klein's, therefore no pressure to get her on air before a competitor does. She's simply cut out of the loop as is someone like Thomas Frank. More and more, most people never even hear thoughtful challengers to corporate and MIC hegemony, never mind hear them debated.

    Most young men who think they're on the right have never even heard a voice espousing left-economic populism since with the exception of Bernie Sanders forcing his way into the national consciousness those voices are simply marginalized out of public existence.

    Thus those young men believe the only alternative to corrupt, right-wing Democratic policies that give them little hope is the sort of "blow it up" faux populism of the likes of Donald Trump. They have no idea there was once a labor movement on the left that fought for them, for example–now the only lefties they hear about are the identity politics types disinterested in economic justice.

  9. She has no college degree and what she publishes has been ripped apart. That's why. People are not going to take advice or try to learn from someone that foolish and unqualified.
