Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well do you have an example of such a politician in recent memory? Yanis Varoufakis is one of the best public speakers I know and he could make a very convincing case for his position in maybe ten minutes of allotted time. The Guardian ran 1:50 minutes outtakes when he was elected and then gave some low effort summary. The opportunity to convince the undecided comes only rarely when you don't run on think tank drivel. There is no free media time for leftists. And why would there be? Covering abominations like Trump or Farage at least can give a member of the professional classes a smug feeling of superiority. A socialist droning on about social justice and how the system that works for them doesn't for most people can only make them uncomfortable.
