In what has to be some kind of record, The Washington Post ran 16 positive stories on Bernie Sanders in 16 hours after his upset victory over Hillary Clinton in Michigan’s Democratic presidential primary.

It’s obvious from this tiny sample of 1/547th of the calendar year, taken after an objectively huge Sanders win in Michigan, that The Post has a pro-Sanders bias. Are Post “journalists” even capable of criticizing the Vermont senator? Doubt it.

(If you somehow failed to detect the sarcasm in the above — or don't get the joke — this should help. Basically, Sanders supporters noted Tuesday that The Post had run 16 "negative" — in their minds — stories about Sanders in 16 hours after Sunday night's debate, in which his performance was seen as less-then-stellar.)
