Pundit Summary for Jimmy Dore

<= Back to All Pundits

With the obligatory caveat that you should trust your own judgement and form your own opionions on the various voices across all forms of news media, this is my own list of the pundits I've settled into listening to at one point in time or another.


Jimmy Dore of The Jimmy Dore Show
Jimmy Dore is a standup comic who hosts a Political Show on YouTube, The Jimmy Dore Show, which is an affiliate of The Young Turks. He breaks down news from a progressive left point of view. He is supportive of Bernie Sanders but at the same time doesn't believe the Democratic Party can be saved/transformed into a Party that will represent a truly progressive agenda which should include a single payer healthcare system, a rejection of corporate money, and a reduced role for the US Military, and for wealth inquality to some how, some way be reigned in.

Dore doesn't take any news passed through from deep state agencies such as the CIA at face value and instead looks for the evidence, considers the more believable motivations of foreigh powers, seemingly subscribed to a Noam Chomsky type cynicism for US Foreign Policy. There is a humor to his show but more often than not these days its a type of gallows humor of a comedien who perhaps has resigned himself to the fact this is the way the world is. As Geogre Carlin says, 'its a big club and you ain't in it.'

Cornel West Smacks Down Chris Wallace's Loaded B.B. Question on Looting
Show: The Jimmy Dore Show
Watched on June, 2020

Notes/Summary:

In this case Dore is just dissecting the great Cornell West not tripping over Fox News framing and landing solid points about looting of protesters versus where that 

fits into the larger scheme of the looting going on with corporations and the covid19 stimulus bills.
