Jill Stein censored by PBS?
A key chunk of the Green Party presidential candidate's recent 15-minute interview with anchor Judy Woodruff on the PBS News Hour was apparently left on the cutting room floor. The section of the interview contained Stein's criticism of Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.
Stein was in the process of responding to Woodruff's inquiry about whether she thinks that Clinton and GOP nominee Donald Trump are equally "as bad" for the country. The differences between the two are insufficient to save American jobs, Stein answered, but the bulk of her analysis in context set forth below was edited out of the PBS broadcast (although the entire interview video appears on the PBS NewsHour Facebook page).
"Hillary Clinton and now her transition director Ken Salazar, they're big proponents of Trans-Pacific Partnership which is basically NAFTA on steroids, and most observers believe that it will send our jobs overseas as well as undermine American sovereignty by bringing in these international tribunals that get to pass judgement on our laws, on our public health protections, on our worker protections. So we can't count on saving our jobs — saving our lives. One in three Americans now can't afford healthcare under Obamacare. Or saving the planet because Hillary has been a big proponent of fracking as is Ken Salazar, her transition director."
