Some Bernie Sanders supporters have had enough of CNN’s shenanigans when it comes to providing unbiased coverage of the 2016 presidential primaries. The latest call-out comes from the network “whitewashing” the gray-haired candidate’s supporters.
Earlier this year, CNN called Alaska “the most diverse place in America,” but changed its tune on Sunday when Sanders won the state’s Democratic presidential caucus, as well as the Washington and Hawaii caucuses:
In Alaska, he was winning by nearly 60 percentage points with 73 percent of the delegates in at 6:40 p.m. ET. In Washington state, he was ahead by more than 50 points with 31 percent of the delegates in. If that margin holds, he’ll outpace then-Sen. Barack Obama’s performance in Washington in 2008. These caucus states — largely white and rural — are the type of places Sanders traditionally does well. In order to win the nomination, he must replicate this success in other, more ethnically diverse states that hold primaries, as he did in Michigan last month.
