NYT: Fawning Over HRC Costs Some Papers Even More Readers

    It looks like just about all major newspapers this year will endorse Hillary Clinton as before the first debate words were spoken, papers in AZ, TX and OH joined the NYT and WaPo in backing the former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State.
     In this story we hear some of those papers are getting backlash in the form of cancelled subscriptions, something few papers can afford.
     It may be the gratuitous fawning over Mrs. Clinton right out of the gate, as well as an ethos this year that journalists have a higher calling than just reporting this year and should use their position to halt a particularly pernicious politcal force.
      Most people are not going to cancel over an editorial as they have little impact anyway, but the overall lurch in coverage is annoying to readers who believe there is a rigged system in politics and media.
       The essence of newspapers and broadcast outlets is mass appeal, but by becoming house organs for one side , they are becoming either obsolete or part of the growing niche media where everyone retreats to their intellectual corner for comfort and reenforcement.

Just saw a snippet of the carpetbagger B.S.'ing about free college tuition for families earning less than $100K a year. Bwahahaha, just like the 250,000 jobs she brought to NYS while she was Senator.

When did Hillary Clinton, ever claim she was bringing 250,000 jobs to NY, 722? :D

Dannie/D, she said she had a plan for upstate NY when she was first anointed senator. We realize her plan worked for people like you, wallowing in freestuff and excused from paying taxes. But most of us are still waiting for the plan to kick in.

So you cannot show where Clinton made such a statement 1159? Shocking.

My bad. May I correct myself Mr. Mayor? Hillary promised 200,000 jobs for Upstate NY. Washington Post, August 7th.

August 7th??? What year did she state this? I don't remember Hillary saying any such thing during the any August during her term as senator. Where is the quote that shows the original statement? Do you even know how to do research daheep? Jeez...
