Voting for the Clinton Clan would like a vote for Caligula in Roman times…okay, maybe not that bad, but STILL! Go Bernie!
Back in 2008, the New York Times endorsed Hillary Clinton (over Barack Obama and Jonathan Edwards) in the Democratic primary in an editorial.
These days, the New York Times is continuing its endorsement of Clinton—but on the news pages.
Consider the difference in coverage. Clinton gets a straightforward article on how “she would ‘fight’ back against Republicans, ‘fight’ climate change, ‘fight’ to ‘strengthen America’s families’ and ‘fight’ to ‘harness all of America’s power’.”
Meanwhile, Sanders gets a snide article on his call for a “political revolution of 2015,” which follows on the earlier hatchet job on how Sanders’s “revolutionary roots were nurtured in in ’60s Vermont.”
It’s tough enough for a socialist to run for political office in the United States. The least we can hope for is balanced coverage of the political campaign in one of the leading newspapers in the country.
