Here's another perfect example of what is wrong with the "traditional media". On Sunday morning Republican Party Chairman, Ken Mehlman called Hillary Clinton "angry". He went on to say:
"I don't think the American people, if you look historically, elect angry candidates. And whether it's the comments about the plantation or the worst administration in history, Hillary Clinton seems to have a lot of anger."
This is a typical ploy from the right. Throw out some "swiftboat" style attack on a political enemy. It's par for the course. We all expect it.
But what the media does with it is appalling. I personally saw three TV news programs that did stories or had discussions yesterday where they asked the question "IS HILLARY TOO ANGRY TO BE PRESIDENT?" Not only did they do the stories but they teased them over and over before they got to the segments. GOP mission accomplished!
All of this planted by a political enemy - and, the TV producers and newspaper editors just act like sheep and go with it. A better story might have been - why is the GOP so worried about Hillary that they are taking shots two years before the next presidential election?
Here is my suggestion for the next big story - IS KEN MEHLMAN TOO UGLY TO CONTINUE AS GOP CHAIRMAN?
