He was a guest on a show last week. I tuned in, in time to hear him say , "We are in the last two minutes of the program and we are just beginning to talk about Hillary Clinton"
The rest of the program had been taken up discussing the male candidate.
The point was made for anyone listening.
Charlie Rose had several male journalist guests during the previous week to speak about the presidential race.
One spoke of how the male candidate performs marvelously compared to Hillary who doesn't.
The preference was clearly for performance. No matter the content.
Another day, Dan Balze, a senior journalist with the Washington Post cited the "muscularity"
of the male performance as opposed to Hillary.
Ian Bremner of the Eurasia Group and Mike Allan of Political exposed equally blatant bias and
Charlie challenged none of them.
Don Lemon had the new manager of the performer candidate as a guest on CNN.
He referred to " all the crimes Clinton has committed". Lemon stopped and made it clear, this was a T.V. Station and it had to be said , Hillary Clinton had never been charged with any crime.
But the barracuda could be counted on to keep repeating the lies. It's clearly the reason for his
Hillary has been diagnosed with pneumonia . She attended the Memorial for 9/11 anyway and was overwhelmed after ninety minutes in the heat. That she succumbed to the heat is now added to the list of her failings.
Refusing to submit. is just another example of her lack of transparency.
The woven orange mat flapping about his head. The total lack of integrity. The lies and distortions. The profanity and gutter level accusations. The cheating. The contradictions, flip flops and frequent incitement to hatred and violence. And the refusal to release his tax returns . None of that disturbs the male equilibrium, so long as the performance is strong and weighted with muscularity.
Systemic bias is a modern term. It describes bias that permeates a system in every sense.
Universal engagement means it's never acknowledged.
There's little doubt the media,like the rest, is afflicted with systemic bias. Even the best are unaware.
The challenge for Hillary is that much harder.
Her courage and endurance that much more impressive.
The battle continues.
