CNN Recently Called Alaska the “Most Diverse Place in America.” Today When Bernie Sanders Won Alaska, CNN Called the State “Largely White”

ALASKA (VFB) — Today, Bernie Sanders won the Alaska caucus handily over Hillary Clinton, taking in a whopping 80.7% of that state’s vote.

In covering the landslide victory, CNN revealed its undeniable bias against Sanders, by suddenly changing its own narrative about the Last Frontier State.

In its Five Takeaways story, CNN reported:

“These caucus states — largely white and rural — are the type of places Sanders traditionally does well. In order to win the nomination, he must replicate this success in other, more ethnically diverse states…”


“…he must replicate this success in other, more ethnically diverse states…”


What’s ironic about CNN’s report on Bernie’s victory in ‘largely white and rural” Alaska, is that only weeks ago, the mainstream outlet ran a much different story that promoted Alaska as the “Most diverse place in America.”

According to CNN in January, Alaska’s diversity “may surprise folks from the Lower 48 who picture Alaska as a largely homogenous and snowy American extremity. But Alaskans are quite proud of their distinctive demographics.”


“There’s no white part of town. No Aleut village. Or Chinatown.”


“We all live together. Even white people like me. Think how it would be if the whole country had been organized like this. It does people good to break out of their comfort zone and mix with neighbors who are different.”

What a difference a month (and Bernie Sanders) makes!

Last week, Alaska was the “Most Diverse Place in America.”

This week, Bernie Sanders won the Alaska Caucuses, and the state suddenly became “Largely White and Rural.”
