    That is the whole purpose of having the media following you around...you don't have to work as hard to get your message out.
    At the end of the day she still doesn't have to take questions. The only time she has to take a question is during a debate and she can dodge answering them.

    If she doesn't answer any questions then people will be able to put words into her mouth and create their own version of of her views.

    the whole purpose of having media coverage and the only reason any politician would want it is so that they get face time with Americans and a way to share their message.

    Don't worry, there will be plenty of time to grill her on Benghazi.

    Garbage.

    You wanna say everyone but Fox is biased, put it in 'Bias in the Media'.
    It's No poll with NO real choice.

    That's the reverse of what logic would dictate, if the media was interested in news and educating their audience. If Clinton is the heir apparent, why the need for wall to wall coverage of her ordering a sandwich or getting out of her SUV? If there are 10 Republicans sharing the spotlight, why not cover them more in depth so that their viewers get to know the choices and where they stand? You're just confirming that the media is parading the DNC's chosen message carrier because that's what they view their role as being. They're not interested in news and education - they're interesting in pimping their choice.

    And again, you unwittingly make the OP's point. The media is the messenger for the DNC. Why pay for ads or campaign material when the MSM is a willing agent for your message?

    Indeed. And yet there are some who still stubbornly cling to the ideological belief that the MSM doesn't have a liberal bias, beyond all common sense and reason that.

It's frankly quite nauseating but there is one benefit. The media is so blatantly and transparently in the tank for Clinton that 19 months of this type of fawning coverage will surely turn the majority of Americans off as well as give them clear indication of the woman for whom she is and it won't be pretty.

    It will, undoubtedly, send a message of elitism, to the more than average voter.

    The key to any campaign is controlling the message, something Obama and Harper have in common. Anymore, controlling the message is attempted by 'staged events', where the candidate is an actor for the camera, no questions allowed. They all do it, Reagan's people were perfect at it, Mulroney's people went too far, and in that we have an example. The public who intend to vote but have not made up their mind is always the most important primary demographic. Because they intend to vote, they are paying attention, and what they will see sooner or later is the practiced "sincerity" of her 'coverage' as opposed to the other candidates. And it backfires.

    This however is the primary campaign and she had in the bag in '08, hers to lose. What Democrats need to be asking themselves is "why"? If she is the most desired candidate why the need to hammer it home so hard? With that "coverage' what is it you are not being allowed to see?

    Does anyone know how she became so filthy rich BTW?

    You have a reading comprehension issue, because that's not what the poll says at all. So why don't you take your idea of what it says and start a new poll in Media Bias?
