Ok. Let’s have a candid moment.
Of course, during this presidential contest where Hillary Clinton is in the fight of her political life against Donald Trump, (and he may very well, win the election) Hillary Clinton is judged with a double standard. Let’s stop the non-sense, and this charade that they are covered the same way.
Hillary may have extremely high negative approval numbers, but faces a double standard. She is NOT covered the same way as Trump. The media holds her to a tougher higher standard. Dare I say it, because she is seen as much more creditable.
Whenever you hear a candidate while answering questions about whether they are judged with a double standard respond, “I’ll leave that to others to answer,” then the answer is yes, they feel exactly that way but they are afraid of the repercussions to simply tell the truth. To be seen as whining.I know a thing or two about this, because it was exactly the same thing with NYC’s first African American David Dinkins. He would face the identical question about news coverage like Clinton did at her recent event, and respond exactly the same way basically that Hillary Clinton did.
Dinkins would often respond by saying “Why do you ask? I’ll leave it to others to judge.”
Then literally minutes later privately, he would often fume to me about how greatly unfair he felt media coverage of him was.
