  1. Biden took on the NRA and won the first time. Biden took on the NRA a second time and lost because the Republican party of no was in the majority. Republicans owe the NRA their first born.

  2. I found Yangs information in maybe 30seconds….

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/amysterling/2019/06/15/automated-future/amp/

    It’s the first page…first result.

    This one is a gathering of studies…..

    https://www.technologyreview.com/s/610005/every-study-we-could-find-on-what-automation-will-do-to-jobs-in-one-chart/

  3. It's not as black and white as she makes it seam. Read about it yourself here. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/10/17/are-jobs-lost-due-bad-trade-policy-or-automation/%3foutputType=amp

    In short, outsourcing is currently cheaper than automation, but automation is cheaper than made on america. Automation is the only thing going down in price and affects far more than manufacturing, especially when in the USA.

  4. I need only to look at the dislike ratio to know that this fact check is going to misconstrue the arguments of the candidates.

  5. Maybe she should get the data that AY was referencing. She can get a copy when Warren gets one. It seems he has it at the ready.

  6. Maybe we need to lower the minimum wage and pay corporate news hacks that rate. Then we can pay the rest of the citizens a livable wage and make the media accountable for their bees essses.

  7. Seeing how NBC tried to stop Weinstein reporting, claimed by Farrow, I would not trust what these fake news media have to say to sway the voters to NBC's own direction.

  8. You know if you’re political biased, you shouldn’t be called fact checker. There was a lot more facts to check in this last debate than petty numbers but of course they will never do that because it will hurt their candidates. Fake news.

  9. Two women way too gleeful tearing down with disingenuous statements. And BTW the hostess has a bad voice for broadcasting.

  10. This NBC Fact Checker needs to find another Job, pure lazy Journalism at best. Blantantly calls out false misleading information and does not repeal information or issue a apology statement for misleading the public with wrong information.

  11. Yang was referring to national numbers. He posits the number is 4 million and not 5 million because only 80% of new job loss is due to automation. This lady is a quack who should be more careful before going up against Yang.

  12. starting to enjoy these hit pieces on Andrew Yang. Makes the biases so obvious, voters on the fence are starting to see through the facade of "objective news". Its just going to turn more voters to be pro-Yang LOL
