Hillary Clinton continues to make a mockery of herself in her efforts to regain the spotlight; she’s now claiming the media environment is skewed against the Democrats.
Clinton was on the Pod Save America podcast on Tuesday as part of her “Blame Everyone But Me For Election Loss” tour and launched straight into a tirade scapegoating the media for her loss.
“The other side has dedicated propaganda channels,” said Clinton. “That’s what I call Fox News. It has outlets like Breitbart and crazy Infowars and things like that.”
Naturally, she blamed the Russians for “aiding and abetting” the spreading of this “propaganda,” as well as social media platforms like Facebook. Clinton added that President Trump’s “reality TV campaign” dominated the media coverage, which made it “hard to break through.”
Clinton then gave some laugh-inducing analysis about how tough it’s going to be for the Democrats and the media.
“I think the Democrats can do a lot, but they are still going to face a very difficult media environment,” said Clinton, “and we’ve got to figure out how we’re going to break through.”
This, to use one of the president’s favorite terms, is fake news. The fact is, it’s the Democrats who have a monopoly on the media: only 7% of journalists are Republican and 96% of journalists donated to Clinton in the last election cycle. In fact, a recent Media Research Center study found that the evening news coverage from ABC, CBS and NBC has been 91% negative toward Trump since his presidency began.
Additionally, The Daily Wire has previously reported that “51% of newspaper and Internet publishing jobs are in counties that Hillary Clinton won in 2016 by over 30 points.”
Fox News, Breitbart, and Infowars are convenient scapegoats for Clinton, but it’s abundantly clear that the media is overwhelmingly biased toward Democrats. The media is actually one major advantage the Democrats have, which is why so many on the Right have railed against media bias for years.
The fact that Clinton lost to Trump despite having an advantage in the media once again shows what a terrible, awful candidate she was.
