Silence: Nets Cover as Sanders Lobbies for Voting Rights for Boston Bomber


[See NewsBusters for more.] Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders shocked many on Monday night as he lobbied for the restoration of voting rights for the Boston Marathon bomber, as well as those guilty of sexual assault. But you wouldn’t know this if you relied on the network morning shows. ABC, CBS and NBC, despite a combined six hours of available air time on Tuesday, ignored the startling comments, remarks that even baffled liberal CNN host Chris Cuomo. Sanders appeared on CNN for the network’s night of town halls. Anne Carlstein, a student at Harvard University, pressed the 2020 candidate on insisting that felons should be able to vote: “Does this mean you would support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murder? Do you think that those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women's rights?”
