While noticed by an astonished national press, if you're in Wisconsin you likely had little to no idea that Bernie Sanders drew a record breaking crowd in Madison on July 1. The highest read newspaper in the state (the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) covered the event on the bottom of page 3, never once mentioning the size of the crowd (estimated at 10,000 - 13,000). The second most read newspaper, the Wisconsin State Journal, did include the information, but not a peep about it being the largest.So, while national outlets have their jaws on the floor at the enormous crowd, the response of Wisconsin media was to just let it pass by with barely a mention.
