Why The Media Wants Clinton To Shut Up

Nobody in the media is eager to hear Clinton’s perspective on that catastrophic election cycle — especially not the part about them and their performance. They would rather not reflect on why her “damned emails” were so ridiculously overemphasized. Or why Trump enjoyed constant and groveling promotion as a television spectacle. Or why journalists produced so many misleading “investigations” of the Clinton Foundation, yet so very few examinations of Trump’s longstanding connections to organized crime. Or why vital policy differences between the two candidates received a tiny fraction of media attention...

I'm not even going to buy the book.

I voted for Hillary in the national election (not the primary), and supported her vehemently against Trump. But that had more to do with Trump than Clinton.

She has already stated that her active elected political life is over.

I'm not interested in anything else.

I don't hate her...but I'm really tired of all the shit.

I believe that says more about the echo chamber that you live in than what the majority of the people experience.

In the real world....

Assessing a Clinton argument that the media helped to elect Trump
The Washington Post
Sept 12, 2017
(A few short excerpts)
By the end of the campaign, Donald Trump had been the beneficiary of the equivalent of some $5 billion in free advertising, according to the media tracking firm mediaQuant...
Nearly 70,000 sentences were written about Clinton’s emails. In contrast, fewer than 50,000 sentences were written about Trump’s various scandals. About twice as much attention was paid to Clinton’s emails in total than to Trump’s scandals...
A report from analyst Andrew Tyndall...estimated Clinton’s emails earned three times as much nightly news coverage as policy issues from the beginning of 2016 to mid-October...
Thanks from Clara007

Clinton and Trump were equaling disgusting, vile people. 2016 matched two of of the worst candidates of all time. This wasn't an election of who you wanted, but who you didn't want, and that's the truth.

Hillary Clinton was a horrible candidate with a lot of baggage. Lots of bad baggage. No reason to rehash what is commonly known about her. If she were elected, she would be mired in scandals and whatnot. Hillary is not that liberal either, she is a Democrat because her husband was. If the Republican Party was the stronger route for Bill Clinton back in Arkansas, he would have become one. Hillary used to be a Republican in her youth, and has made lots of money from Wall Street, Big Business like Walmart, all that.

I am not a liberal or a Democrat, but there are some good Democrats. I think Al Franken is a good dude who cares about people and the country. I probably would not like his policies, but I would know a decent, knowledgable person who likes/loves people is up there. Hillary is a witch, and she wouldn't have been good for liberal/progressives.

One good thing if Hillary won would be able to see Huma Abedin everyday. I love Huma, that's my baby. She's so beautiful......I want to kick Anthony Weiner in the nuts with a steel toed boot. Hopefully someone in the joint will do my work for me. Not that Huma would dig me, she has taste and class.
Thanks from BubbaJones and Panther

I saw an article talking about air time given each person. I can't remember how long the time frame was. But it was during the primaries. Trump was receiving almost an hour and a half from most of the major networks. Hillary was getting under an hour.

Bernie ??? At a time when he was drawing more people to his rallys than either Trump or Hillary, some times more than both of them combined, he received a whopping 32 seconds of air time !!

Why The Media Want Hillary Clinton To Shut Up
If even the Third Way Democrat media want Clinton to shut up, that must mean she's really bad for their brand! Most corporate-sponsored Democrats are pretending to be progressives now..and then along comes Hillary again to remind everyone why Donald Trump is sitting in the White House today.
