In a nutshell, here’s what happened in 2016:
While political pundits and the mainstream media were cowering in the back of the bus and kissing Donald Trump’s immense ass (i.e. ego), their real prey was a familiar one: Hillary Clinton.
The media has been trashing Hillary from the day she first set foot in the White House as First Lady. Anyone who has followed her career could have predicted that when she ran for president, starting with the 2008 primaries, the media’s gang rape would start anew.
If there was one reason I didn’t want her to run again in 2016, it was the spectacle of seeing her mercilessly attacked in the press while her opponent was given a pass despite his crude, dangerous, and misogynist behavior.
Do we really think that Hillary’s use of a private email server deserved the attention it got, while Trump’s “vagina groping” and psychopathic behavior was barely mentioned?
Along with the Russians, the FBI director, Sanders, and terrible advice from her campaign staff, Hillary can thank the media for helping Trump get elected.
Now that Hillary has reappeared with her book, What Happened, the media is doing what it always has done: reshaping facts and events to suit their bias against her. Nevermind that the book is meant to portray her perspective on the campaign. Even as I write this, dozens of journalists are out there writing their own versions of what Hillary really thought, said, and did during the campaign.
Here are links to some current news stories and opinion pieces about Hillary and What Happened. I’ve tried to include a few positive, less prejudicial stories about her. No doubt you’ll find one or two that align with your own political prejudices.
