President Obama said that Hillary Clinton was not treated fairly throughout the Presidential Election. Do you agree with President Obama?
Th media had their nose so far up Trump's ass, they could see his esophagus.
That's hilarious and exactly 180 degrees out of phase from reality. The media was in the tank for Hillary the whole way, as they are for anyone with a 'D' after their name on the ballot.
Maybe it depends on what people were watching too. Fox was pro Trump. MSNBC hated him. I don't know about the others
Valid point - I neglected to account for the Fox News outlier.
Are you for real? The main stream media are all liberal (CNN, CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC). The only media organization that gave Trump a fair shake was FOX News!
You must have been asleep for eighteen months during the primaries and the election!
She was given one free pass after another in all phases of the process. She stole the nomination, was given questions for the debates, every single scandal was dismissed and ignored as irrelevant by so called "reputable" sources, and nobody even considered the possibility trump could win.
If anything she was given an unfair advantage, and trump was screwed over. But he still came out on top, thanks to the thousands of Americans who saw past the deception and voted their conscience.
If treated fairly = treated justly, then she was treated unfairly gentle by the media. The mainstream media constantly glosses over the actions of Clinton and her DNC ilk.
The Clinton started it from Bill ran the first time. They just got their pay back.
She was rightfully skimmed from from the top like scum.
Well, maybe I do agree. After all, if she had been treated fairly, she would be in Federal Prison right now.
Soon to be Unemployed man said what?
Hilary was treated way too nicely during the election. Jail for her would have been more appropriate.
Clinton? No. Sanders? Yes.
Yes, that is true. A false equivalence was established that Hillary's private e-mail server and paid speeches was somehow just as bad or worse than Trump's bigotry, racism, xenophobia, sexual assaults, sexual abuse, abuse of gold star families, tax avoidance, sexism, bankruptcies and encouraging Russia to commit cyber espionage.
Agree. Clinton actually broke the law and should have been treated far worse.
... She wanted to be called a racist, sexist. Homophobic, Islamiphobic, lying, egotistical, loud mouth who doesn't have the temperament to be president?
She did have her staff rope the media off (with actual rope).
I guess the media didn't want actual sex with her.
Only insomuch as she gets was given every last possible advantage that government and media personnel could give her.
Is he insane , the only thing the media didn't do was literally kiss her ass on live TV
Exactly. She was treated unfairly to the advantage
He is right! She was not treated fairly. If she had been treated like an average American she would be in jail
Came here to say that!
Indeed. She got lots of largesse.
Ok, and Trump was...?
Given hours and hours of free coverage and ensured everyone heard everything
He went everywhere he was invited to be on news networks. Clinton didn't. The more he went, the more they covered him. That does not include Sean Hannity licking his ass. He would have done that anyway but Hillary didn't go on many news shows. She minimized her own exposure.
New excuse. Is it the new Russia?
Don't you think bernie sanders was treated unfairly?
Extremely unfairly... And I am no fan of Sanders
Well, she wasn't treated fairly. She was given special treatment. She was fed questions prior to debates. She/her campaign was permitted to vet media reports before they were released. She was barely questioned about the pay to play and money laundering allegations being investigated within the Clinton Foundation. She wasn't challenged or argued with by moderators during debates like Trump was, and so on.
Obama is an idiot.
She was unfairly favored I would say.
In a manner of speaking she was treated unfairly she got all the good PR and Trump got bad PR. Press was totally in her pocket and did not cover any of her trash. Obamas back to where he was when he first started blaming everybody
She was given preference and great deference by the media.
I agree, but neither was DJT.
Sort of. The media was desperate to spin controversy out of nothing and find equivalence in Hillary for all of the nonsense spewing from the Drumpf that they made a mountain out of her emails and managed to convince a gullible, uneducated populace that there was something nefarious there.
I don't think they intended to do that to her, they were just trying to present themselves as unbiased by trying to force 'balance' to the controversies of the Drumpf, because the mouthbreathing public think that news is only unbiased if it gives equal air time to all opinions, no matter how well founded they are.
Hillary's emails were never a focal point to the media until the last few weeks.
Liar. They spoke often and at length about her emails from the moment she announced her candidacy. It was the only thing they could 'dig up' about her that was remotely based in reality, so they ran with it.
It was always brushed off. They much rather switch the camera to Trump's controversy way more.
Well, he had a new one nearly everyday, they couldn't skip em and fall behind in the ratings, but they always compared them to Hillary's emails, over and over again, discussing them in contrast to each other as if there was some sort of equivalence. What it did was remind viewers every day to be afraid of Hillary's emails, but keep forgetting the last Trump controversy to make mental room for the new one.
You're right. Comparing Trump's flaws to Hillary's flaws isn't even comparable. No wonder she lost.
What a joke. Leading up to the election everyone knew she was being favored by the media. Since she lost, history is being re-written.
She colluded with the DNC to rig the primaries and she had essentially all of the corporate media (save Fox 🙄) on her side throughout the General Election, while they blacked out the third party campaigns. No, I don't think that's 'fair' at all.
Would be nice for the President to apologize to Bernie Sanders for the unfair treatment extended to him during the election.
MrO take responsibility for his failure? 😂😂😂
It baffles me that anyone would claim that a Clinton was treated unfairly. Hillary had the mainstream media, a rebounding economy (while artificially stimulated), and a terrible political opponent, and she still couldn't win.
She *was* treated unfairly, just in a way that benefited her much more than anyone else.
Well - sure. Usually, people would say that Trump was treated unfairly in that context though.
I suppose. Trump had a HUGE advantage over the third party campaigns.
In a way, but not like Obama claims.
I think the media unfairly favored her.
How was she treated unfairly? She has worked her whole life to be the most elite person in America.
