One more effort to downgrade Hillary's campaign. How silly. Hillary's lead in the polls, will soon begin, inevitably, to drop. All campaigns develop in this manner; and media will be there, anxious to destroy her campaign, because they're fundamentally hostile to Hillary. Media will be there, ready to create the illusion that, as her lead begins to diminish, as happens when we approach the nominating ritual, and polls show an inevitable tightening, they'll try to decieve people into buying the notion that her campaign is "showing signs of faltering," when, in fact, nothing of the kind will be happening. This is comparable to the other piece of media and closet, republican-pollster, nonsense, that Hillary is "polariziing." Media pretends this quality is a singular characteristic of the candidate, but it's purely a product of media. Of course she's polarizing, she's the frontrunner in the race for the presidency, and everyone else opposes her efforts, in and out of her party. All the best candidates are polarizing, for the obvious reason, that their views present a challenge to a disappointing status quo. Those candidates that express the greatest opposition to things as they are, will also get high marks for being polarizing. Kucinich received the same results in this "polarizing" race, but no one is making a fuss about it his case, not because being polarizing is not the same fproblem him, as it is for her, but because she's WINNING. Could it be that she's cleverly detected which pole, to be on the side of, which pole, reflects the winning political outlook? Could it be, that being the most polarizing of candidates, is the "best" reason for voting for her, and not the albatross around her neck, that a hostile media would like you to think?
Anyone that thinks that Hillary will get even-handed treatment from these Murdoch dominated media, is delusional. I say this, fully aware that Murdoch has cleverly "appeared" to support her campaign by giving her a pittance of a contribution. It's the oldest trick in the book. He knows that giving her this pittance, all the while making certain that we all hear about it, will cost Hillary votes. It will. But whether it will cost her enough to defeat her, depends on the wariness, the instincts of wise voters.
