86. Bill Clinton is responsible for the state of the media today in some ways,
He was the first president to try and manipulate the media to present him in a positive light, although Bush has taken it to a higher level. To suggest that Kerry was afforded the same treatment in the media as Clinton was given during his campaigns and during his presidency is absolutely false. The Clinton's have enjoyed much media attention and much of that has been positive. Senator Kerry on the other hand was greeted with hostility and ultimately had to do battle with the press for any attention. he competed with Reagan's funeral, Clinton's heart surgery, OBL tapes, color coded warnings, and a media bent on helping Bush. Tell me what Clinton went through during his run for president that was not of his own making?
