Bernie I hardly knew ye

This was the the picture illustrating the NY Times article about the MoveOn endorsement of Bernie Sanders:

The article itself was buried in a backpage column on the web site.  The Washington post gave the announcement similar treatment.  Seems like a pretty good illustration of the major media effort to ignore the challenge to the establishment candidate.

MoveOn members cast 340,665 votes.  78% went for Bernie.  15% went for Clinton.  O'Malley got 1%.

The Nation site reported the endorsement with a headline story very shortly after the results of the MoveOn vote was announced.
