Stupid media pet tricks
Journalists used to cover politics more like a sports event or, with the best, on behalf of their readers, viewers and listeners. The get Bernie behind Hillary obsession of current media is a classic example of how they have become a passive tool of campaign managers (in this case Clinton's) dutifully repeating political messages as news and fact. Thus the public does not know that 45% of the delegates to the Democratic convention are for Sanders and don't have to follow the Clinton-media campaign orders but can make up their own minds.
