Behind Bernie vs. Hillary in Brooklyn's Navy Yard
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton may be meeting for their final head-to-head debate tonight in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, ahead of a heated primary for delegates in New York state, where Sanders is trying to overcome the odds to beat Clinton. The debate, hosted by CNN, promises to be as intriguing and explosive as any Democratic presidential debate could be.
Redux’s Mark Peterson takes you behind the scenes to see how this debate looks behind CNN’s stage and scaffolding. An earpiece dangles from the back of a chair, counterterrorism officers sweep the terrain and so on — nothing can hide from Peterson’s lens, not even a grilled cheese.
