Talk About Blatant Media Bias!

We know the media has a liberal bias and we know it is in love with both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.  I've come to the conclusion it's because of their star power more than actual ability to function ably in high office.

Hillary will be 69 in 2016.  Some have suggested that's too old but maybe not this day and age.  It all depends on her health as a whole.  A better question may be how much botox it will take to keep her looking viable against her competition who will all be younger.  You know how it is between how men look at a certain age and women.  As Hillary faced her last days as Secretary of State, the wear and tear definitely showed.

The media, however, are going to do their level, or not so level if you're considering playing fields, best to make her look as good as possible.  It has been announced that two films about her will be released before the election.  One will be a four hour mini-series on NBC starring Diane Lane. It will cover the time from the Lewinsky scandal through her years as Secretary of State.  Funny, these were years where her record was relatively clean except for the one big Benghazi blunder.  But then we know how the networks can whitewash things so no matter.

The other, Rodham, will cover the early years she spent with Bill and the time she spent on the House Judiciary Committee when Nixon was impeached.  She was dismissed from that duty, by the way, for various misdeeds including lying and removing files from the offices of the committee without permission.  The CNN feature film is considering Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried for the role.  She was, of course, much younger in those days.  It is reported that the film will pass over those indiscretions.  So much for reality TV!  What it will be is revisionist history.

It will be interesting to see if these films actually come to be.  I expect they will and we'll see Hillary as the dynamic, squeaky clean wonder woman we've all come to love.

My next question is how are they going to give equal time to her opponents?  Maybe it can be finessed so that it's not required.  All I know is I'm really, really glad the same consideration isn't being given to Anthony Weiner!
