Hillary Clinton “Rope-A-Dopes” The National Media

AND THEY LOVE HER FOR IT …

|| By FITSNEWS ||  At this point it’s hard to dispute the fact that former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has put the best interests of American citizens and taxpayers second to the interests of her family’s foundation.

Brazenly so, even …

Rather than rip her to shreds for her bad behavior, though, America’s mainstream media has barely even addressed Clinton’s foundational scandals.  What might have destroyed another politician has barely amounted to a speed bump on Clinton’s red carpet ride to the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

The irony?

The press has given Clinton a hall pass despite the fact she hasn’t coddled them.  If anything she’s ignored them.  Treating them the same way she treats, um, “everyday Americans.”

Worse, even …

At a Fourth of July parade in Gorham, New Hampshire this weekend, Clinton’s staff went so far as to use a rope line to ensure members of the media kept their distance from the candidate.

Wow …

“Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate her obvious contempt and disdain for the Granite State’s style of grassroots campaigning,” New Hampshire GOP official Jennifer Horn said in a statement. “The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke and insults the traditions of our first-in-the-nation primary.”

Clinton’s response?

“While the GOP might want to spin a good yarn on this, let’s not get tied up in knots,” Clinton’s campaign told CNN.  “We wanted to accommodate the press, allow (Clinton to) greet voters and allow the press to be right there in the parade with her, as opposed to preset locations.”

Maybe so, but the visual of reporters being herded along a small town street like cats ahead of Clinton’s posse of bodyguards was a disturbing metaphor for her candidacy up to this point.

Will such demeaning treatment cause the media establishment to rethink its warm, unconditional, sustained embrace of Clinton’s status quo candidacy?

Don’t be silly …
