Honestly the media is being far too fair to Trump under this false equivalency that he should be treated like a genuine option for president. By comparison the media is being quite unfair to Johnson and Stein who are more legitimate candidates for the presidency. Not that I think they are legitimate but by comparison to Trump, just about everyone is.
This is laughable, John Iadarola is that you?
I get it, you don't like Trump. I understand that, it's hard to like him for plenty of reasons that were covered here ad nauseam. But notion that media was fair to Trump majority of the election is just false, I can point to the plenty of examples that, you can't really see past your bias.
Trump has only been as successful as he has been thus far in this election due to the media. Do you think he'd have been able to have almost zero ad buys and zero ground game and won the Republican nomination if he had received the same amount of media coverage as other candidates? Absolutely not. He's a media whore. .
i agree with that, but that does not imply he was given as fair coverage as other candidates. Especially compare to Hillary, there are many outlets who regularly look past her 'sins' give her good press etc, only outlet on that does that for Trump is quite small Breitbart. And Hillary sins outweigh does of Trump, her positions and statements do not, but what she actually done, her and DNC is far far worse than Donald being insufferable ass and yet we hardly hear about it.
Hillary getting a free pass really manifested in primaries vs Sanders. There were several hit pieces on him wrote by big outlet and some of those were inspired by Hillary campaign. Like spreading the myth of Bernie bros of him and his voters being some closeted sexists- which is fucking absurd. I'm not even that huge fan of Sanders, but cmon.
