When it comes to the Clinton Rules 2.0, It’s not just conservatives working the refs, it’s telling the refs we’re playing Calvinball, where the rules are made up and points don’t really matter. Spongefrommom Loadpants:
When President Bush was selective about who he took questions from, the press ate him alive for it. And Bush was far more open to the press than Hillary’s being (and he was the president). And Hillary is running unopposed which makes the press’s role much more important. Why not err on the side of the truth, particularly when the truth hurts? Every meeting with pre-selected human props should be described that way. Every “event” should be reported in hostile — and more accurate! — terms. “Mrs. Clinton held another scripted and staged event today where volunteers asked pre-arranged safe questions the scandal-plagued candidate was prepared to answer . . .”
I understand the press is liberal, but they also have a very high opinion of themselves. The Clinton campaign is making fools of them. It’s time for some payback.
So according to the luminaries on the right, we’ve reached the point where journalists covering Hillary Clinton at all is now proof that they’re stupid dupes who can no longer be trusted, or worse, partisans in the tank for the Democrats who need to be dealt with. As such, the only option going forward for “fair and balanced” media outlets is to simply and openly attack her at every opportunity.
And that’s not partisan at all, right?
Better question: how many Villagers are going to go along with this?
Forget trying to make the media throw the game, just make a new game where Democrats can’t win.
