It helps if it fits a well-established narrative about a candidate. And there is no substitute for a high-impact visual element — preferably live video that includes the candidate.

NPR wrore a nice article about why Trump is on constant rotation and Clinton's problems are all but ignored.

Clintons problems require thought and are boring to the average person.

Because they want, nay, need a HRC presidency to continue the globalist agenda.

Trump had been a good lackey so far spouting off one day after the other.

Now they both want returns for their investment...


You can deliberate amongst yourselves about such.


It's an atrocious presidential election.

Isn't it obvious?

Because Hilary is the chosen establishment candidate and has Obama and his crooked State Deptarment, DOJ and the media under his thumb.

Although the White Huse has been corrupt for quite some time, Obama has brought ChiTown style thuggery into politics.

Six people connected to Hilary have died from suspicious circumstances or murdered.

Trump speaks to the press (or at them) while Hilary hides from the light. If Trump were to win Hilary would likely get a pass anyhow but if she were to win and the Republicans can retain a majority in House and Senate she will be impeached if not imprisoned.

Because every media outlet but one has a liberal agenda. Some are more centrist some are more radical, but they all spin to the left.

I think this is partly true.

Mostly, however, exposing the Clintons' scandals would implicate the Bushes and highlight the fact that both parties are in collusion.

Yes, it is a tangled, vast web that most people don't have the headspace for -- drug/gun running, financial spying, and money laundering -- but mostly, no one is allowed to know the truth about U.S. politics and the shadow global government.

Honestly I think they cover quite a bit of it, I think your more mad that it fails to sway Americans. Disclaimer were screwed either way, I hate both of them and almost don't care who wins. But I love bashing them both.

HRC's emails expose why:

Washington is one giant pay for play scam on a global scale and the media is part of it. Many of the most important media personalities are married right into the scam. They have all spent time paying into the scam so they are invested in the gravy train continuing, even the RNC players are.

No one has spent time paying into Trump's graxy train, not like they have the Clinton Foundation.

Imagine all the wasted time and money around the globe if HRC is not elected and everyone from DNC to RNC to crony business to media loses that money they paid in expecting to get favorable returns.

Because Trump is a bloviating orange pustule whose campaign is imploding at a truly astonishing rate whilst Clinton runs a tight & competent ship?

Because she has raised the funds to pay off the media to lie for her, and if she can’t bribe them, there is always blackmail. Problem is she is imploding so badly, it is nearly impossible to prop her up any more, and they (media) are beginning to show the strain. The only ones that believe those fake poll numbers anymore are the faithful few, and since Trump supporters actually listen to his speeches, the lies and spin from mainstream about what he says is falling on deaf ears.

"Why Are The Media Obsessed With Trump's Controversies And Not Clinton's?"

I'm gonna take a whack at it:
Because Hilary's a communist...um, I mean democrat...
She loves planet earth and Lena Dunham thinks she's cool...
Hillary appreciates Radical Muslim Regimes(Saudi Arabia and The Muslim Brotherhood come to mind) and makes sure they feel good about their misogyny and homophobia...

Trump is an evil republican and wants to burn planet earth to the ground all while stealing pensions from your grandparents...
He also wants to legislate against people aborting babies during the third trimester(you know, that period when a baby could survive outside the womb and the mother has had 20+ weeks to decide what to do)...so therefore he hates women
Also, he is an admitted capitalist as opposed to a whatever the hell skill got the Clintons a quarter billion dollars...

That might be true but that's besides the point of the article.

Even if manufacturered Trump's controversy are brain candy and Clinton's are not.

Why? you ask?

It's because the Democrat organization buys the media.

WikiLeaks Just Revealed Mainstream Media Works Directly With Hillary, DNC

The DNC does not deny the authenticity of the proof.

Because Trump is doing his job... and doing it well. He keeps telling you "the fix is in". He's the false flag, the distraction you all keep waiting for... in the flesh... staring you in the face and laughing at you.

Nice Post. The reason is that the media is largely made up of younger people who have been told that capitalism is evil and socialism is good. They have not been allowed to study history to learn that socialism fails. These are the same people that believe they can pick up a turd (socialism) by the clean end.

That's not quite true. No one is prevented from going and doing the legwork to learn something for themselves. The sad fact is that most people just don't have the intellectual curiosity needed to go that extra mile, so they simply trust that all they need is what they're fed by their teachers and professors and that it is all they will ever need to know.

Because the leftist controlled MSM has more in common with regimes like North Korea than many want to admit.
