The Hillary Free Pass

The double standard of the MSM continues to dismay me. For example, when an organization of the current administration, FEMA, faked a press conference the media circled on that for days. Yet, when "Hitlery" Clinton is reported to have planted questions in at least 2 campaign events the MSM buries those stories as quickly as possible.

Need evidence? Go to each of the MSM news web sites today; ABC News, CBS News, MSNBC, CNN and Fox News. None but Fox News has a story on this on their front page.

Now search for "Hillary Clinton" on each of those sites. Count how many titles mention this scandal. Here are the links for my searches and the scores:
CBS News: 0
CNN: 0
ABC News: 1
Fox News: 1 (but only in video section)
Remember this is 24 to 48 hours after the first report broke, and there have been reports of a second incident since then. The stories are there, they are just buried.

Here we have an issue that points right to the honesty and integrity of a person who is asking to be President, the presumed front-runner for the Democratic nomination, and the media apparently doesn't want us to know about it. More evidence to me that MSM establishments have moved from reporting events to trying to shape them. Sad.
