The eyebrow-raising oversight was first by Paste Magazine, which accused CNN, in concert with the Democratic Party, of "stacking" the audience against Sanders by not being upfront about who was tasked with asking the senator questions.
Sanders, who competed for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 primaries, which were won by Hillary Clinton, began his second campaign on Saturday in NY where he addressed thousands of followers and vowed to defeat Trump, describing him as "very dangerous" for the nation.

Sanders has always used demagogic phrases to hide the class content of the issues that he very tentatively raises, and to disguise the central issue facing working people: the need to break with capitalist politics, including the Democratic Party, and build a mass independent political movement to fight the profit system.

On Thursday, he will hold a rally at Council Bluffs' Mid-America Center, an arena with a listed "concert capacity" of 8,000.
