Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Sunday’s Democratic Debate between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders on CNN will take place under unprecedented circumstances, both politically and logistically. Although there will be no in-person audience at the event, Sling will be offering the debate totally free to everyone, no credit card or subscription required.

As mentioned above, Sunday’s debate – the first to feature only Biden and Sanders, the two remaining Democratic candidates – has undergone multiple changes as a result of the public health situation surrounding the COVID-19 virus. In addition to moving the event to Washington DC from Arizona and closing it to a live audience, CNN moderator Jorge Ramos has stepped down after possible exposure to coronavirus. Instead, Ilia Calderón will join Dana Bash and Jake Tapper as moderators of the event.
It goes without saying that Biden and Sanders will be discussing much more than just their Presidential qualifications, so truly, this is an important debate you won’t want to miss. Follow the link below to watch Sling now.
