I think the media — from lofty New York Times to Politico — is addicted to chasing down alleged Clinton scandals which, on deeper investigation, turn out to (as Joy Reid said) result in them having to admit that “there’s no there there.”
Trump is a legitimate scandal machine, he has so many that the public doesn’t care. His scandals are egregious and have been documented six way from Sunday.
HoHummm — so he shot somebody in Times Square, big deal; but what about Bill Clinton using Hillary’s taxpayer funded computer to play on-line poker?
Trump has more Teflon on him that 100 sets of cookware. By and large the mainstream media has given up reporting on them. Despicable Bannon getting a top spot on his campaign? Pervert Roger Ailes working for the campaign. HoHum.
The media is desperate for something that will stick to one of them, and have given up on Trump. That’s leaves Hillary. So they keep throwing allegations at her without thorough investigation hoping something will stick. They figure the clickbait titles will get attention, increase readers, and the day later “ops, so sorry, we were wrong” articles are published only when the Clinton campaign or another journalist (often on MSNBC) catches them in the distortion or outright life.
Reporting like this used to get journalists fired. Hell, they got fired for less.
Now these media are behaving like there’s a journalist “morning after pill” that can undo the accident of the night before.
Afterthought — Why did we have to rely on this guy on Twitter to report this?
