CNN gets it wrong, initially shows Bernie as winner of Mississippi

On Tuesday, voters in six states went to the polls to make their voices heard in the presidential primaries.

Will it be a good night for Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden? With places like Missouri, Mississippi, Washington, Idaho and Michigan voting, who really knows.Michigan, with it’s 125 delegates up for grabs, is the big prize.

However, for at least a few seconds, the Biden campaign was experiencing heart palpitations. That’s because CNN initially showed that the Vermont senator was the winner of the southern state.

Of course this wasn’t right. Biden was eventually projected to win the state’s 36 delegates.
