...Go to the 40 minute mark and you will be gob smacked by the angry truth. Plotz says that the worst example of presidential campaign coverage is not 2016. It was 2008 specifically because of what the media intentionally did to benefit Obama. It’s refreshing to finally hear it but it’s also cold because we will never know how much of a difference it would have made if they had just done their jobs critically and honestly.
I think we can all agree that this is what we witnessed in 2008. Obama could do no wrong. Everything he did or didn’t do was covered favorably. Anything Hillary did was picked to pieces, made to look sinister and calculating, and was portrayed in the most negative light possible. So, thank you David Plotz for laying it all out so clearly...
