Desjardins, Lisa. "What Does Bernie Sanders Believe? Where the Candidate Stands on 10
Issues." PBS. PBS, 30 Apr. 2015. Web. 24 Jan. 2016.
<http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/bernie-sanders-believe-candidate-stands-10-issues/>.
Lisa Desjardins is PBS NewsHour's Political Director. She has written several other pieces on
the election, but mostly covers anything political. In this article, I was able to gain knowledge on
issues summarized in a succinct way. I used the information I learned here on my issues page
and even looked at some of the many links included in this piece.
This is a secondary source, for Desjardins is merely summarizing and restating issues that
Bernie has focused on and that had been commented on in multiple places.

Stratford, Michael. "Bernie Sanders Calls for Two Tuition-free Years." Inside Higher Ed. N.p., 20
Feb. 2015. Web. 24 Jan. 2016. <https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/02/20/berniesanders-calls-two-tuition-free-years-all-public-colleges-and-universities>.
This was a very valuable site. I reached it by following a link in source #1. Since it is focused on
education, it was a very in depth and analytical view of what Bernie Sanders wants to do for
education. I didnt need to use all of the information for it was a little too specific for my
purposes, but I was able to quote it in a synopsis of the issues he supports related to education.
This is a secondary source, for Stratford is simply retelling Bernies plans for education.
Source #3:
Leibovich, Mark. "The Socialist Senator." The New York Times. The New York Times, 20 Jan.
2007. Web. 24 Jan. 2016. <http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/21/magazine/21Sanders.t.html?
_r=0>.
This article happens to be Mark Leibovichs first article with New York Times, and I found it
extremely informational as well as very good writing and journalism. This particular article was
rather long, so I only read about half of it. But I got a clear image of Leibovichs perception of
Bernie and how he pushed these high schoolers thinking. I especially enjoyed what this article
brought, for it was written in 2007 so it was free of presidential-related opinions. It was a clear
example of Bernies character and how he really hasnt changedwhich is really nice to know
about a candidate.

This is a secondary source, but it has many primary elements including several direct quotes
from Bernie, and I believe that the journalist was actually there getting quotes and then retelling
the scene for anyone else who reads it. Though thats just the beginning of the article,
everything else was acquired through research.
Source #4:
"Who Is Bernie Sanders?" FeelTheBernorg. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2016.
<http://feelthebern.org/who-is-bernie-sanders/>.
This website helped by giving me an overview of the candidate Bernie Sanders. I especially
benefited from it being formatted as a question/response sort of thing. I was able to look through
and see which questions I also had and the answers to them. I didnt cite anything from this
site, although it helped in making me more knowledgeable. It is very accurate and through.
This is a secondary source, for its directly supporting and discussing Bernie Sanders, but it is
not his own website.
Source #5:
Inside Gov. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2016. <http://presidentialcandidates.insidegov.com/compare/35-40/Bernie-Sanders-vs-Hillary-Clinton>.
This site was very helpful because it basically boils down a candidate or candidates into a bunch
of statistics. In this particular link I was able to view Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders side by
side and see the differences in opinions and funding. I used one of their graphs to help illustrate
my point.
I would consider this a secondary source, for its interpreting all the data and information and
presenting it in a new way. Then again, these things are constantly changing and everything is
currently happening, so its just hard really say.
Source #6:
"Issues." Bernie Sanders. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2016. <https://berniesanders.com/issues/>.
This is Bernie Sanders personal site for his campaign. I originally used this site to help me write
a one paged campaign flyer. So I need to credit it for that, especially since I included some of
the same information in this website.
I would consider this a primary source, for this is the site that Bernie had created for his
campaign, and even though I dont know if he actually wrote any of itit is a direct
representation of him and what he stands for.
