The cable news giant has recently had to come to the conclusion that Senator Bernie Sanders is a player in the Democratic race for President. MSNBC can no longer just give him an outlier status with recent Iowa polling showing that he is surging. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has struggled to be relevant on the cable news channel since they just don’t seem to give a damn about his candidacy. Anchors for the channel only seem to mention Mr. Sanders when he is doing badly to recognize his challenge to the other Democratic contenders. The polls and political donations however have maintained his relevance no matter how hard MSNBC has tried to dampen down enthusiasm for Bernie Sanders.
