Accuracy in Media

During a brief discussion of Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions, CNN’s New Day anchor Chris Cuomo commented that she had better run, after all the media have done for her:

We couldn’t help her any more than we have. She’s got just a free ride so far from the media…we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign, so it better happen.

Cuomo is right. The media have invested a lot of time and effort in promoting Clinton as a potential 2016 presidential candidate—something she has not discouraged. If she decides not to run, for some inexplicable reason, it could be devastating to their hopes of continuing Democratic rule, given the relative weakness of the rest of the likely candidate pool.

    Now that it’s August of 2016, I’d say that their efforts to force Hillary down the collective votes of the electorate are going to fail, in spite of help from the likes of Nate Silver and his presstitute polls.

    The video is from 2014, more than two years ago and Cuomo is not bragging about promoting Clinton but pointing out media publicity, which I take as a kind of veiled criticism.

    He is saying: She is getting all this media attention, and so she better make up her mind whether to run before it is too late.

    Trump got even more media attention in the past year……courtesy the same media.

    This video is more than two years old and Cuoma can as well be criticizing the media for paying so much attention to Clinton. Since the Trump announced, he has received much more free publicity, most ignoring to challenge his lies and demand details on how he would Make America Great Again, return jobs, end crime, etc.

    Trump, literarilly, , just phoned it in. At 70 and 100 lbs overweight and consumed with anger and hatred, Trump is a walking time bomb. He will likely drop; out
