"Sanders Wins 2 States, But Clinton Retains Lead" - AP Headline on MSN

Another excellent example of misleading media bias.

3. Total BS. Should have said: "Sanders Wins 2 States, But Clinton Retains Nomination"

Silly AP.

6. Whoa

I just started another thread posting how terrible the Washington Post coverage was:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511583036

But the Associated Press is even WORSE! Amongst other things, it's remarkable how they managed to not mention the actual margins of victories at all.

And this bit is a masterpiece of bias (the only mention of actual election result numbers), making it seem Sanders only gained a couple dozen delegates:

He was unlikely to emerge from his Saturday sweep with significantly more delegates, winning at least 36 delegates to Clinton's 11 for the day after his victories in Alaska and Washington. More are likely to be allocated to Sanders in several weeks, when Washington state Democratic party releases vote shares by district.


Back in realityland, we already know he's going to cut into Clinton's lead by at least 55 delegates for the night, and that's not counting Hawaii yet. UGH!

7. The AP headline is quite true

but to be fair, most people expected that Clinton would retain the lead after tonight
