Politico, far from a neutral news outlet, wrote a feature piece entitled, “Why Do They Hate Her?” In the piece, the writer focuses on how everyone is piling on Hillary Clinton, a losing presidential candidate for the Democratic Party.
Here are the list of excuses, after the reader gets through a history lesson of Richard Nixon and Henry Clay:
- Gender (sexism!)
- Today’s political climate is too divisive
- Republicans “did more than demonize her”
- Glanced over her bad campaign: “For running a bad campaign? Perhaps, though the jury is still out on that question.”
However, the piece does not recognize that people do not like Clinton because of the combination of several things: Her lack of personality, her e-mail scandal and secrecy, her “deplorables” comment, and how she continues to blame everyone else for her Election Day loss to Trump.
The media continues to excuse Clinton for her stunning loss, which ultimately lies at her feet.
