Media Bias Continues

liberal-media-bias

For two days, I’ve watched the coverage of Hillary’s medical episode, as well as, general campaign coverage.  Equal coverage or time spent on each candidate is one thing; how that is done or the spin it takes, is another.

I am reminded of a story from the Cold War:  In Russia, an American Ford had a race with a Russian car. The Ford won by a very large margin.  So how did Russian media report it:  The Ford finished next to last, while the Russian car took second place.  You may be telling the truth, but manipulate in such a way as to change or adjust the perception.

Back to the coverage:  As I watched, on virtually every report I saw, comments on Hillary’s health issues were immediately segued into a Trump challenge or negative, therefore blunting the reports on Hillary.  Some spins were more subtle than others and few were blatantly obvious.

Far and equal coverage and commentary?   That would be nice.
