Nets Tout Socialist Sanders in 2016 Race, NBC Skips Left-Wing Label

More in the cross-post on the MRC's NewsBusters blog.

On Thursday, all three network morning shows noted independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders entering the 2016 presidential race as a Democrat. However, NBC's Today left out any mention of the self-described socialist's radical left-wing views.

Today co-host Matt Lauer informed viewers: "Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will formerly announce his plans to enter that race. The 73-year-old is an independent, but he's going to run as a Democrat. That makes it easier to get his name on the ballot in all fifty states."
