"Journalists" give standing O to Hillary

    I put journalists in quote marks because there's really no room for people who approach their jobs that way in the profession. More than mere embarrassments to the business, do they not understand that the politicians they favor in their coverage are laughing at them, not with them, as toothless lap dogs? And this was after the imperious and likely corrupt HRC joked about her unlawful private email server and refused to answer any questions from her smitten audience.

    Don't people generally applaud someone who gives a speech, though?

    It was an award ceremony -- for the "Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting." They weren't there to cover Hilary Clinton making a speech. They were there for the ceremony. Of course they applauded. Who sits on their hands when someone gets up and speaks at an award ceremony?

    Trying too hard, Joe. Never linking Breitbart is a good rule for life.

    It's payback for Clinton putting out the hit on its founder.

    If we're not careful, next thing you know, we'll have journalists applauding and laughing at a president's jokes at an annual black-tie dinner event.

    If we snubbed people who used private emails to keep information from the media, we wouldn't talk to many coaches or athletic directors anymore.

    Or college football.

    What a crock. Polite applause as a gesture for someone giving a speech is one thing. A standing ovation is quite another.

    When newsrooms are stacked with people who split 85-90% Democratic in most major elections, there's no denying the bias. All this did was send a signal to HRC that -- even after being rode hard and put up wet by the Obama administration for the past six-plus years -- the same lap dogs are eager to do the same for her.

    Breitbart's site craps bigger than a lot of MSM outlets. Challenge the information and facts of what transpired, and lay off the ad hominem stuff.

    Bottom line, Hillary gets a free pass 100% of the time from 90% of the media.
