    (AFP) Bernie Sanders won New Hampshire’s high-stakes Democratic primary on Tuesday, according to US network projections, leaving rivals including party stalwart Joe Biden in his wake as he staked his claim to challenge President Donald Trump in November.

    Sanders, the flag-bearer for the party’s progressive wing, had 26 percent of votes with most of the count complete in the northeastern state, where he routed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    “Let me take this opportunity to thank the people of New Hampshire for a great victory tonight,” Sanders told cheering supporters after NBC and ABC called the result in his favor.

    “This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” the senator from neighboring Vermont added as raised the roof with his rallying cry for fairer taxes and health care reform.

    I came to JPR first this morning to see how Bernie did, as I knew  the MSM reporting would piss me off.  CNN headline is “Five Takeaways From the New Hampshire Primary.”  Below  that, a photo of Sanders.  Caption is “Sanders got the celebration that eluded him a week earlier. But Buttigieg made him sweat.”

    And then finally, in small pale type, is “Bernie Sanders Wins New Hampshire Primary.”

    CNN’s  home page is just the most blatant example of news manipulation via headlines, layout, type size/color.  Yes, most every story the write is manipulation, but they keep getting bolder about it.

    As for Butti, his rise from the obscurity of small city mayor to presidential contender is even more spectacular than Obama’s, and 100x more suspicious.

    And Klobucher?  Isn’t she the one who treats staff and underlings poorly? Not that the DNC cares, but how did she muster up a third place showing?

    However if Amy and Butti can make Biden throw in the towel, they will serve a good purpose.  It is downright painful to watch Joe at this point.  Warren shot herself in the foot.

    Sad to see Tulsi did not do better.  But the DNC and MSM  may hate her more than Bernie, so she has  gotten no help from either.

    the centrist vote, and so a Buttigieg/Klobuchar ticket would suit the DNC just fine.  The little coverage I saw last night downplayed Bernie’s win.

    Bernie or Green.  If the centrists are so numerous, the DNC should not worry about Bernie’s supporters one whit, I would have thought.

    I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.
