    Much closer to the boring, yet dreaded truth.

    MSNBC exists as a counter-weight to Fox .. fine if you enjoy listening to weights ...
    NPR for primarily the truth and education.. the two things far too many avoid.. sadly..

    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.
    Hillery does not have to answer questions, she puts out her message through her campaign and the media and you take her at her word. If she starts taking questions is when she will fail.

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.
    Or, being most MSM (And Fox) are about making money, it could be that people know who Hillary Clinton is. 538 even has a chart on this, the only other one on the known side is Jeb and Christie (Clinton is pretty far and away more well known though). So, they can cover guy(s) that are moderately at best, unknown at worst, that won't get eyeballs. Or cover a well known person who will attract a lot of eyeballs.

    They go with what sells, and Clinton sells. Bush, Rubio, Paul, etc. don't sell (or as well), so they stick with Hillary. I'm sure as we get farther along Bush, Rubio, Paul etc. will be more known, and then they'll get more coverage because they'll sell.

    To an earlier post, Fox does it as well but they go more for a niche then broad appeal. Fox was smart in realizing there was a niche and catering to it. MSNBC tries the same (note the tries), and I'm not sure anymore what CNN goes for, granted barely watched them before and don't know (and before I still had no idea what they go for).

    What's the point of starting a thread if you're going to be aggressive towards anybody who decides to reply with a different opinion? At least, Pete made an effort to make a case that it was. American just kind of jumped to screaming that Liberals "bitch" about FOX. Oh, the kind of nonsense that is allowed on this forum.

    Well why are you getting all mad and trolly about it? It's obvious that Fox News is a part of the GOP. They will base their policies off of what commentators say, whereas even if the rest of them were mouthpieces for the democrats, the Democrats base their policies off of what people want, not what a handful of commentators push for. I think the only one that would even qualify as a "mouth piece" could be MSNBC, but even they dedicate a whole 2-3 hours to a show ran by a Republican and they also employ several Republican politicians. How many does Fox employ?
