A Two-Month Study on Just How Much MSNBC Ignores Bernie Sanders

Author 512932
Message Al Hirschfield

To understand how MSNBC may be shaping the 2020 election, In These Times analyzed the network’s August and September coverage of the Democratic presidential contest’s leading candidates—Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. We focused on the network’s flagship primetime shows: The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, All In with Chris Hayes, The Beat with Ari Melber, Hardball with Chris Matthews, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell and The Rachel Maddow Show...

The coverage quickly revealed a pattern. Over the two months, these six programs focused on Biden, often to the exclusion of Warren and Sanders. Sanders received not only the least total coverage (less than one-third of Biden’s), but the most negative.

I think the tide is turning on Bernie. Today, Sunday, on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd actually said "Maybe Bernie is more electable than Biden." He then pushed that idea for the rest of his program. Remarkable. I actually applauded him in my kitchen when I heard him say that. Question -- did he do that on his own, or did MSNBC suggest he could help them out of the bias bind they're in if he focused on Sanders for a whole show?
