To what extent were the 2016 primaries actually rigged against Sanders/ for Hillary?

This question was sparked by the fact that I've recently become aware of some outrage movements (some of which I have been a part of) that are actually based off false premises or ignore the details/nuance in the situations. Because of this I have become increasingly skeptical of any large claims that are easily stoked by anger, because I felt like I was cheated, tricked, and otherwise manipulated to feel a certain way about perceived slights.

Anyway, I had took it as a given from hearsay that the primaries were rigged against Bernie, but some googling gives me sources that say the primaries weren't rigged against him, and instead in some aspects actually favored him.

But then looking at a segment of a Michael Moore video, he says that Bernie had basically swept all the counties for a state, but Hillary somehow still got the votes for it, with similar situations happening across multiple states. The sources that say it wasn't rigged don't discuss this at all so I'm kind of confused.

I know that asking this in a Bernie subreddit will obviously give me biased info and probably a decent amount of low effort hive minded responses, but it's also the place I feel like I can get the most all round info without worrying about secret agendas and the like.

Thanks!

Hillary talking about M4A

In the article, Clinton says Warren's M4A plan would never get enacted but this is also kind of a jab at Bernie since Warren is pretty much copying Sanders.

Hillary really seems to be trying to help Biden. I also think she kind of holds a grudge against Bernie from the last election.

Bernie Sanders’ narrow win in the 2016 Michigan primary is widely considered to be one of the biggest upsets in modern American political history, with polling before the primary showing him trailing Hillary Clinton by an average of 21.4 points

since then, polling has only gotten less reliable and less effective at sampling the struggling working class.

don't put undue stock in any polling. Bernie's path to victory is through expanding the electorate and activating millions of new voters and people who don't normally vote, which historically-based polling models rightly aren't going to consider.

we fight until we get the nomination (beating the DNC), then we fight until we get the oval office (beating Trump), then we fight until we get Medicare For All (beating the health insurance industry and big pharma).

A former Hillary staffer said Bernie is too angry, a joyful campaign is the winner.

I know Bernie has to fight with mainstream media, but we as his supporters need to be joyful. Don't get angry with other people, just explain how you think Bernie is the most electable candidate, be joyful of the idea of a bunch of these candidates working in Bernie's cabinet. What we've done is Independents invaded and took over the Democratic Party. We won because we are smarter than them and have better strategy. We're going through some growing pains as they realize we're now Democrats. And then they'll just be glad we have a winning campaign.

Don't spread any negative energy. That's what the mainstream media does. Don't let it bother you. We have the clearest path to victory and everyone should be happy

Studebaker: The Left Cannot Win the Country by Campaigning Like Hillary Clinton

Excellent post here.

TL:DR: The Squad needs to leave behind identity politics and wedge issues and focus on concrete material benefits for the population, which have broad popular appeal and unite us rather than dividing us. In other words, learn from Bernie, who won over the audience when he went on Fox News.
