I've written many pieces on the antagonistic and almost hateful way the media treats Hillary Clinton. It happens in a lot of these little news pieces that cover the hot topic of the moment and ask yourself if they would ever use the same words to describe John McCain. CNN's Candy Crowley gives us the perfect example of this phenomenon. Please show me an instance where any other candidate would be described like this?
CROWLEY: Not much need for an answer, anyway. It's a pretty good bet that if Bill Clinton feels that way -- and he does -- then she does, too.
SEN. HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON (D-NY), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Obviously, we want as many people as possible to be able to participate.
CROWLEY: It's been like that a lot lately, a rendition of good cop/bad cop, ganging up mostly on Barack Obama.
She applies the velvet shiv.
H. CLINTON: I'm running for president because I believe that there is not a contradiction between experience and change.
Maybe John King will say that I'm a biased blogger who doesn't understand the years of experience Candy has and that she's equally been criticized by the right and the segment probably was edited a bit and she has said some really nice things about the Clinton's in the past. I guess using Prison Break and OZ analogies with Hillary stabbing Obama in the back is the new norm for excellence in journalism. Just think about the imagery a "shiv" conjures up to the viewer. It's unseemly. (h/t Mark Groubert)
