Here is a recently published insight from columnist H.A. Goodman:
Millions of Democrats are voting for a presidential candidate linked to an FBI criminal investigation. These voters either don’t know there’s been a year-long FBI investigation of Clinton’s emails, don’t care, or would vote for Clinton even [sic] she faced Espionage Act indictments. … This state of affairs would never take place in any other leading democracy, but American politics is unique. (emphasis added)
Goodman acknowledges the obvious, yes, but without a requisite specificity. For American politics is not so unique as is Democrat Party politics; more specifically, Democrat politicians and liberal orthodoxy as portrayed by America’s liberal media (a.k.a. ‘mainstream’ media) establishment; the very media who have shielded Mrs. Clinton, much as they did her husband before her, from the scrutiny and skepticism regularly applied to Republican politicians and conservative causes.
Establishment media have helped the Democrat party herd Hillary supporters toward a cliff-side state of sheer delusion, toward believing her corruption, demagoguery and apparent criminality ought not inhibit her candidacy for the White House.
This is one reason a history of America’s 2016 election cycle, and of modern American politics, will not be complete unless it includes a detailed examination of the role America’s mass media have played and the impact they have had.Follow @PolitiQuick
