.@andersoncooper to Sanders, Oct. 14, 2015:

"Senator Sanders, let’s talk about income inequality. Wages and incomes are flat. You’ve argued that the gap between rich and poor is wider than at any time since the 1920s. ... What are you going to be able to do that Obama didn’t?"
@andersoncooper .@jdickerson to Sanders, July 12, 2015:

"A lot of the issues you have mentioned both on wages and income inequality are going to be the topic of a speech by Hillary Clinton ... on Monday. How do you distinguish yourself from her for Democratic voters out there?"
@andersoncooper @jdickerson .@TheRevAl to Sanders, March 15, 2016:

"What do you say to black and Latino voters who you need to support you in November if you`re the nominee ... what do you say will be their particular way of dealing with racial inequality in the fight about income inequality?"
@andersoncooper @jdickerson @TheRevAl .@wolfblitzer did an interview with Sanders in May 2015, the whole first section of which is about income inequality
@andersoncooper @jdickerson @TheRevAl @wolfblitzer There are other questions about the details, including whether his tax hikes are about deficit reduction or income inequality, etc.
@andersoncooper @jdickerson @TheRevAl @wolfblitzer There's a reason many of these are from 2015/early 2016. Sanders talked about income inequality *all the time.* Asking him in broad terms what he would do was liable to be repetitive.

From that point on, the questions appear to be more about the finer points and process.
@andersoncooper @jdickerson @TheRevAl @wolfblitzer I also appreciate those countering with, "You had to go all the way back to 2015!"

1) See the above point.

2) Sanders said, "Not one reporter has ever asked me."
