With the news of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton getting off the hook for her use of a private email server to conduct official government business, liberal media have already started to spin the story to create a narrative that fits the agenda they so desperately want to force feed our culture.
According to CNN host Don Lemon, part of the reason Hillary took such harsh criticism for her actions — which were illegal — was because of sexism.
Because there’s absolutely no way it could possibly have anything at all to do with breaking the law or something.
The Free Beacon reports, Lemon compared the tumult over Clinton’s emails to fireworks on the Fourth of July, in a clip flagged by media watchdog NewsBusters.
“This is CNN Tonight. I’m Don Lemon. When you’re the first woman with a real shot at winning the White House, you know at least one thing is for sure,” he said. “The men at the top are going to have a lot to say about you. First, I want you to listen to the FBI Director James Comey’s blistering assessment of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.”
That is how Lemon led his report on FBI Director James Comey’s 15-minute statement Tuesday in which he did not recommend charges be brought against Clinton for her conduct at the State Department. Comey also called Clinton “extremely careless” with her handling of classified information and refuted her talking points about never sending or receiving such information on her private server. The Washington Post subsequently published an article discussing how Comey “systematically dismantled Clinton’s email defense.”
Lemon also played clips of both Donald Trump criticizing Clinton and of President Obama emphatically praising her while on the campaign trail. Trump and Obama are both men, playing into Lemon’s narrative that sexism may play a role.
The whole “it’s because she’s a woman” thing has most definitely run its course, so it might be a wise idea for liberals to start finding new excuses to use when attempting to defend their new progressive hero.
Being a woman is the least of Hillary’s issues, and this is something the left already knows. The problem isn’t her gender, but her absolute lack of any semblance of moral character.
Hillary is notorious for corruption and has backed up her reputation with both the Benghazi ordeal and this email debacle.
Given her track record, it seems a lack of trust in Clinton is certainly a reasonable response.
Perhaps the day will come when our news media will return to its roots of presenting objective facts in order to enable citizens to draw their own conclusions, rather than attempting to tell others how to think. Not holding my breath.
