MSNBC is out of its mind over Sanders leading Nevada

They aren't pleased.

Only 2% of precincts are reporting right now in Nevada, but they match what polls have been showing in recent days: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is likely to win the Nevada caucus.

That would cement him as the clear frontrunner in the 2020 Democrat primary, especially given his surge in national polls in the past two weeks.

While his ascension isn’t surprising, it sure is alarming anchors, reporters, and analysts over at MSNBC, who you could say are having a “normal” one.

So much so that many on Twitter started to notice just how anti-Sanders the coverage was.

As results poured in, MSNBC analyst James Carville said things were going “very well” for Vladimir Putin, saying “hi” to him while talking about how a Sanders victory would make the Russian president giddy.

Carville was citing a recent report that, along with helping President Donald Trump’s campaign, Russian trolls were working to promote Sanders’ campaign.

Anchor Chris Matthews even compared Sanders’ strong showing to the Nazis overrunning France.

Also noticed was an MSNBC reporter letting out a giant sigh when she mentions the number of voters at a caucus who had lined up for Sanders.

The apparent bias made its way to people watching online, with memes being made as viewers flagged MSNBC’s, let’s just say, point-of-view.

Sanders’ own campaign criticized the coverage MSNBC was giving Sanders after his New Hampshire win, saying Fox News had been fairer to Sanders in its coverage.
