Media and Hillary Clinton.
The Clinton campaign and supporters have been complaining that the media were unfair and, guess what, they are probably right. However, it brings 2 points that everybody should ponder:

1/ Why is everybody surprised? Fair or unfair, the media has been unfair with the Clinton for more than 10 years. Why would it change all of a sudden? How is it possible that the Clinton campaign did not anticipate this? It is another of these incompetences that we have seen all through this campaign and that does not augur well of a Clinton presidency.

2/ WHO THINKS THAT THE MEDIA WILL ACT DIFFERENTLY AGAINST MC CAIN, the media's darling? I am not suggesting that Clinton supporters stop supporting her, but, if the media are mean to her NOW, during a democrat vs democrat contest and she has trouble answering, how do you think she is going to be when the media throw their full venom in a race against Mr Clean (or at least their image of Mr Clean).

So, stop whining about that, start drawing a strategy for her if she is the nominee, and stop helping the enemy if Obama is the nominee.

That is, if you care about this country more than about having her the nominee.

2. How many weeks did it take her, and only because they want the Democratic nomination to last
longer, in order to help McCain.

3. I find it telling that while the Clinton supporters cry bias every chance they get
...that after seeing the MSM try and completely undermine Obama over the last week to give Hillary a last shot at staying in the race how few Obama supporters are crying about it.

Not one poster has said fire someone, nor boycott this network or that network.

I guess the Obama supporters have more confidence in their candidate to win than the Hillary supporters.
