ABC News Has Covered Sanders for Only Seven Minutes in 2019

A new study from the Media Research Center finds Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) has received only seven minutes of total coverage from ABC News in 2019.

The MRC study tallied the amount of time ABC News has spent covering each candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. Former vice president Joe Biden received the most coverage with 68 minutes, nearly 10 times the amount Sanders received. Sanders is tied with South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg with the fifth-most attention from ABC News out of the 2020 candidates, despite Sanders’s consistent top-three showing in early state and national primary polls.
