Ann Coulter on the debate: Hillary has the media, but Trump has the issues
Ann Coulter writes:
By contrast, when former U.S. senator John Edwards was cheating on his dying wife—while he was running for president, paying his mistress with campaign funds and lying to the American people about it, between lecturing us about morality with the unctuous sanctimony that passes for policy in the Democratic Party—the media primly refused to cover it.
That is, until Edwards was out of the race, at which point the media refused to cover it because he wasn’t a candidate. (You guys are the best! I love the media.) (…)
Unlike Trump’s secretly recorded hot-mic conversation 11 years ago, the Times never thought it worthwhile to quote any of [Mattress Girl] Sulkowicz’s messages to Paul—much less on its front page, sans asterisks. The closest the Times came to acknowledging these texts was to delicately note that the two had “traded mutually affectionate messages.”
