1st Update: Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will face off Sunday night (TONIGHT) in a town hall in Ohio. CNN and TV One are hosting a primetime Democratic town hall Sunday, two days before five states are holding primary elections that are vital in the race to the nomination. The town hall is to be held at Ohio State University in Texas at 8 p.m. ET. -- CNN's Jake Tapper and TV One's Roland Martin are scheduled to host the event, which will follow the same format as previous town halls. CNN has so far hosted five this year, both Democratic and Republican. Questions for the candidates are generated by the moderators and Ohio voters. (As usual, Clinton spoke last and was allowed to get in the last lick.)
2nd Update: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in Springfield on Monday (TOMORROW) to participate in a town-hall meeting hosted by cable channel MSNBC. The town hall, moderated by Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball" program, will air at (6 p.m. CT?) on the cable channel. No other details, including the venue and whether the public can see the event in person, were immediately released in an announcement from MSNBC. Clinton's opponent in the race for the Democratic nomination, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, will appear at an MSNBC town hall from Columbus, Ohio, at 5 p.m. CT Monday. The appearances will take place the night before Illinois voters go to the polls. (Chuck Todd to moderate.)
Meanwhile, especially since Bernie Sanders has won Michigan, the cable news channel MSNBC has been totally in the bag (no pun intended) for Hillary Clinton — even more more so than usual. All morning long they keep flashing poll numbers to show Bernie trailing in the upcoming primaries. They keep showing delegate numbers to show Bernie trailing behind Hillary. Their pro-Hillary guests might out number pro-Bernie guests by a margin of 10-to-1. What is Comcast (MSNBC's owner) so afraid of?
