There can be no doubt that the majority of media outlets favor Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the Presidential election. Heidi Przybyla of USA TODAY agreed today with Bill O’Reilly on “The Factor” that the media favors Trump, though she stopped short of O’Reilly’s claim that 80 percent of them do. But the favoritism goes further– the same media supports Hillary over anyone, including Bernie Sanders. The bias for Clinton is so strong that the tentacles of prejudice seep into the minds of reporters, debate moderators, and it appears clear, even the thinking of the bosses at the DNC, who were once thought to be impartial.
The Bernie Sanders people now know that they were screwed over by the press, and more importantly, the individuals who run the DNC. The only thing saving Clinton is the historic nature of electing the first female President and contempt by many Democrats of Donald Trump. If Clinton wins, it is not because she is an honest or decent person, she clearly is not. Rather those who vote for her will justify their decision by concluding that the unfavorable impact of Clinton’s squalid character is outweighed by Trump’s perceived bigotry.
Moreover, a vast majority of those who vote for Clinton will make that unexamined decision based largely on racial lines: Although the evidence shows otherwise, Clinton is perceived as a friend of minorities, and this falsehood is seemingly unshakable by Trump.
However, you would think that real Bernie Sanders supporters would reject Hillary Clinton because she cheated their candidate out of the nomination.
