As Bernie Sanders climbs to an unfathomable 5-point lead in the Michigan primary, CNN focuses its coverage almost exclusively on Donald Trump. Had Hillary Clinton been leading, CNN no doubt would focus on the Democratic primary, which is easily the largest delegate prize since Texas.

As the corporate media continues to write off Sanders, Sanders continues to defy expectations. The Senator from Vermont has now won Michigan, Maine, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Colorado, Vermont and New Hampshire.
