During the primaries, one in particular frightens the Democrats – at least when it comes to the media: Bernie Sanders. He senses a conspiracy of the “large group press”.
Whe is afraid of Bernie Sanders? “asked the Washington Post recently – three days before Sanders won the primaries by a considerable margin in Nevada, polled voters in almost all demographic groups and outnumbered his competitors and surprisingly clearly identified them Top of the democratic presidential candidates.
Now the American media is struggling for an answer. When CNN declared Sanders by far the winner on the evening of the Nevada primaries, CNN commentator and former Obama administration employee Van Jones said: “The people in the establishment are drooping. If you are looking for a way to slow him down, you will soon find it. The man is already out of the starting blocks. ”Jones described Sanders’ success as“ Youthquake – it is a new generation, they are voters who are not afraid of his ideas ”. But he also said that “this could be a disaster for us in the presidential election”.
