DOES THE MEDIA WANT HILLARY CLINTON TO LOSE?
I presume its that, if not its all about ratings, how else can you explain Drumpf
A not so funny thing occurred to me today, does the media have it in for Hillary? I was scrolling the articles on Huffington Post today, when I realized that there was not one article showcased with is a positive spin on Hillary Clinton's candidacy. Every single one had something negative to say about her. Even when its an article discussing her leading Bernie in the Delegate math, its spun as if Bernie is tightening the race or she should be doing better.I note, that this wasn't the first time I started to notice this, but today it felt like it was so slanted against her, that it was almost palatable. I've noticed this on Facebook a lot, where they post their articles on for us to find in our feed and read on their site. All of the articles by HufffPost are always negative about her. All. Or maybe I just missed the one good one about her, I guess it could happen, I mean I'm not on Facebook 24/7 am I? Lets just say, I've been on it enough to have seen at least one good thing about Hillary, but for the life of me, can not recall any.
Maybe this was a one time thing, perhaps there was an article I missed. Maybe it was just a one time thing, and yesterday there was a piece mentioning her being the most admired woman on Earth for the last 20 years or so, I know I keep reading that somewhere.
I must say, this negatively towards her, is not just only a Huffington Post thing. Every time I flick on my television, all the news channels are doing similar things. Not just FOX FAUX NEWS, but MSNBC and CNN are doing the same thing. There seems to be nothing positive to write about her.
Before every Primary or Caucus the media's talking heads are discussing that this is a must win for Hillary. Even when the polls show she's gonna destroy him that day, and if she does its never by as much as she should have won, and its showcased to be nothing really important. And if she doesn't win by a landslide, its always spun as a victory for her opponent. In states she's expected to lose, all niceties go out the window. We do get the occasional talking head that sounds like they're trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but thats normally forgotten once the votes have been totaled. As if their spin before the Primary was completely forgotten and the facts have been shown out to prove their message. It seems no matter how good or bad the numbers are, its always spun as a negative for her.
I can't wait for Inauguration Day when she's putting her hand on The Bible to swear her oath of the Presidency and the talking heads will bring out all of her scandals and her very low poll numbers. That now she's the most hated person to ever become President. This after she wins the election by anywhere from 3 million to 30 or so million votes. I mean the woman is the most admired woman on Earth for decades now, and thats always ignored.
Even when she wins in a landslide, for them to say it, it feels like its pulling teeth, it was a good day for her. Pretty much the only person on television at least reporting reality about Hillary, has been Rachel Maddow, who has done several pieces showcasing her in a positive light. And in some instances her segments have been the only ones who knock down her negatives. I know there are others on MSNBC and CNN that have shed positives on her, but those are few and far between.
Every time she's discussed the first thing everyone says is that she's disliked. Overtime she's interviewed, they bring it up. And she has to sit there and answer it, sometimes jokingly, sometime dismissively, but it happens every freaking time. Point blank to her face they ask: Does it bother you how much do people hate you? Wow. Yup they hate her so much, she's gonna be our next President, that is if the media seemingly gets their way. How both she and Donald have the lowest positives of any twosome who has ever led their respective parties? As if its a universal belief by all.
Sorry, I don't get it. The woman has the most delegates, the most votes, by millions mind you, but that seems to be the least importance fact that they ever report. Its like its their mantra, they keep bringing up all of the scandals that were proven bogus, to remind people of them. Seemingly to use the FOX playbook against her.
On the reverse, we get Drumpf, who one would assume would be the perfect person to go after. But instead of doing their jobs, they seem to be enjoying the fact that this possible insane businessman somehow has bamboozled a nation. Bernie has been using this bogus idea for months now. I'm the most popular, everyone loves me, look how I'd beat Trump easily in polls.
Sadly after 40 years of attacks by The Right Wing zealots, on Hillary and her husband, which have all been thrown out, are now the line of attacks and questions against her on the air and in print. So now, it seems, seemingly all of these so-called reporters has forgotten what their previous incarnations, the newsmen who proved that the attacks were all lies and bogus, never happened. Its as if the news media had turned away facts for ratings, and lies and gossip for ratings. Even when they reported the facts years before.
Instead of going after Trump, as if, look we better be doing our jobs, cause all of our futures depend on it. They ignore real news about him, And use his very talking points as jumping off points attacking her. For example, the orange face buffoon brought up the Vince Foster conspiracy, but instead of laughing in his face, the news media ran with it, in fact making it into another bogus attack on her again. Its maddening, and when some reporters and talking heads, try to remind us of that, those few voices are drowned out by most of the others trying to bump up their numbers.
I understand this isn't a normal election cycle. The news media keeps harping on that. But this attack against Hillary is nothing new. Maybe its because she's a woman. maybe its because she's a Clinton. Maybe its simply because she's Hillary, and when you try t do something, those standing in your way will do anything to stop you. All I know is, I find it astounding that a woman with her resume, with so much going for her, is always showcased to be everyone negative they can come with. And all the positives never actually occurred, thats all made up. Let's just believe the bull and forget her numerous accomplishments. I mean f you listen to Donald, all Hillary's done in her life is let Bill Clinton cheat on her, and everything else she's failed at dramatically. I mean it is almost laughable, all he says is Believe me or Trust me, and all reality goes out the window.
Again I understand its ratings, but we are talking about electing the next President, and it seems the media is ignoring the fact that she's winning, in everything that matters except for their interpretation of what people like. So every article begins with her being so hated. How she's blowing this big time. That its hers to lose. Well, they're trying their best to help her lose.
It sometimes feels that The Donald is actually the person running the news. Maybe if we ever get the chance to see his taxes, we will discover that he's actually the one paying their bills and runs the media. Maybe thats the real reason he's playing games.
And now as she gets closer to the nomination, all I keep hearing is how all her advantages are gonna slip threw her fingers, cause she's a bad candidate, doesn't know how to attack, to respond, to, blah blah blah. It seems everyone is an expert in how she's not who they want her to be. It really is amazing how, all these experts seem to be blind to facts and reality.
These same experts, still can't figure out how Donald has won his parties nomination. They gave him 24/7 free advertising, use everyone of his tweets as important as our Declaration of Independence. In fact, breaking into real news to have segments on them. And then they're confused that his numbers keep going up. At the same time, all they do is bring up old conspiracies against her and Bill, and spend hours discussing them. Its simply maddening to me.
I can understand why people hate her, I have lots of friends who spout off these slanted talking points that have been drummed into our brains as fact. When you try to argue with them, these victims of corporate brainwashing refuse to listen to reality. It doesn't matter to them whom they've learned it from, if its on TV it must be real.
When the same losers that tried to destroy our nation are drummed out as experts against her, and somehow, their lies are treated now as reality, it makes me sick. Its like former President Nixon, after his Impeachment, and resignation, the man used to go to Yankee Stadium to watch Yankees games. And the few times I was at the stadium at the same time he was, whenever they would showcase he was there on the stadium scoreboard, as if, look which celebrity was attending todays festivities, people would be cheering him. Forgetting what he had done, and why he left his gig early. I seemed to be the only one out of the all the fans, booing him. Seems in all politics its the same game, doesn't matter how bad you were when in office, as long as you were in office you must be good. I mean we voted them in right.
Well if thats the case why is Hillary the villain here? She's never once been caught. Never once been convicted and never once has lost her job for doing anything wrong. But if you listen to these talking heads she should be put into a cell, locked away for good.
Whats gets me is how easily it was for the right to seize anything that could be used to attack her and make it into the biggest offense that anyone on Earth ever did. Somehow benghazi and her email server situation, discovered because of the Benghazi witch hunt, is worse in the publics eyes then anything, one could even imagine. And anything others have done, doesn't matter lets all go nuts on something thats really not an issue.
Its astounds me that people, would rather attack her on these possible offenses and skip over everything else that her haters have said about any and all issues or their own peccadilloes. Bernie's taxes, his wife legal issues. Somehow all of Trumps, are ok, but Hilary's are real bad… Trust me.
I used to trust the media, I used to listen to the talking heads on the air, or the reporters I read in print or online but sadly, most of these experts have been replaced with people with personal vendetta's and no real facts.
So either I'm alone in my opinions and crazy, I mean I know I'm not the only one out there who sees this, but if the media isn't reporting it, maybe I am one of the few, who know, the ones who have pushed her to the bank of being the next President of the United States. Or maybe, most of the voters out there, are not watching the news or the talking heads or the media saying these negative things about her. I mean the numbers ofr news shows are pretty dismal, that is expect for the debates. Those got ratings, but the never ending hate against her actually isn't seen or read by too many, what 5% of the public watches FOX or MSNBC to CNN. Maybe that would explain why she's the one getting the votes and winning the race. Maybe the media doesn't speak for the population, just for whose paying their bills. Perhaps, all of my sleepless nights, my aching stomach is all because I watch and read too much of this garbage. Wow, I just made myself feel better. All of this negativity is the media trying to gain ratings. And sadly, the few viewers who are watching it are spreading the virus of hate against her. I just hope that those who haven't been brainwashed into hating her, will be the majority buy the time election day happens and Hillary wins in a cake walk. And all the haters can sit back, and ponder how they all got it wrong. That the polls were wrong. That the people were number suckered into voting into office a man named Drumpf.
