More on Hillary, Barack and the Press

After he co-opted them, the media assisted King George II in his 2000 coup of the presidency. But the mediots have raised the bar in 2008 with their Obama ass kissing. Maureen Dowd of the NYT has been portraying Hillary as an addled uber bitch for weeks. The Washington Post weighed in Sunday with this insidious commentary trash in covert Hillary bashing. Check it out here.

Now that Hillary has proclaimed her foreign policy superiority to the nation, she is being challenged on what she actually did. This was inevitable, and she should have foreseen it. Clumsy.
-Ken Hart

One note -- that the press declined to "mock" Hillary for not dropping out of the race after losing 11 states in a row hardly seems to constitute "cushy treatment" of her. She was still mathematically very much in the race, still neck and neck, with good prospects looming in Ohio and Texas and now Pennsylvania. And to suggest that the press treated her differently than they would've treated, say, Rudy Giuliani in the same situation, well, I don't know where you're coming from on that. Rudy was never in a similar situation. He spent millions and won one delegate.
