Once again revealing their panic that Bernie Sanders could win the Democratic presidential nomination, CNN has moved to break their own rules to allow Vice President Joe Biden, who hasn’t even declared a run, to enter the party’s first debate.

Originally, the debate rules set by the Democratic National Committee stated that, in order to qualify for the debate, candidates had to have at least 1% support in three credible national polls within the six weeks prior the debate, meaning by early September.

They have now extended the timeline — to the actual day of the debate — so that Biden could announce his candidacy on the same day — literally — and still be eligible.

For CNN’s Republican debate in early September, candidates had to have visited and have at least one paid campaign staffer in two of the four early primary states, in addition to at least 1% support in three national polls, Politico reported.  There are no such requirements for the Democratic debate.

The DNC has been under fire for weeks for their decision to only allow six debates — which many believe is a set-up to keep Sanders and his increasingly popular message hidden from voters.  As Sanders’ name recognition grows, however, so does his favorability and numbers in the polls.

In comparison, during the 2008 primaries, there were more than 20 scheduled debates.

Despite not having announced a run, Biden has also been included in most recent polls, giving him the advantage of seeing how he would do, without having to actually do it.

With the media elite and political establishment being called out by Sanders at every turn, it is no wonder they’ll do anything in their power to prevent his win.

Ladies and gentlemen of the United States, this is your democratic process.
