Voters who have relied on the network evening newscasts for information about the 2016 presidential candidates saw four times more airtime devoted to controversies involving presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump than to the scandals surrounding his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, the only Clinton scandal to receive more than a minimal amount of attention from the networks during the primaries was the ongoing investigation of Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server and her mishandling of classified information while serving as Secretary of State. The networks paid little or no attention to a host of other Clinton controversies that likely would have been big news if they had been associated with her GOP opponent.

Neither Trump nor Hillary are fit to be President.

Never mind that for months on end, Trump got tons of free air time by every freaking network - every morning, I watched while he would call in to Good Morning America on ABC and tell his side of whichever story - while Hillary was getting beat up every single morning on the news.

But now that it's Trump getting beat up for racism and xenophobia and repeatedly - and demonstrably - lying through his teeth, well, now y'all start whining about it!

Gee...Big Surprise!

Hillary has been under investigation or involved in a scandal her entire political career. She has been involved in so many scandals people are bored with them. If Hillary wasn't lying or involved in a scandal one day now that would be news.

more fanciful foolishness, at the moment his numbers are crashing, you need to look up the word honesty.

Not according to the latest reports I have read. But I don't read leftist media outlets. You need to look beyond the low information media that keeps the rank and file leftists ignorant.
