When it comes to news coverage Hillary Clinton receives the most negative coverage, and the least positive.

Courtesy of Vox: 

The biggest news outlets have published more negative stories about Hillary Clinton than any other presidential candidate — including Donald Trump — since January 2015, according to a new analysis of hundreds of thousands of online stories published since last year. 

Clinton has not only been hammered by the most negative coverage but the media also wrote the smallest proportion of positive stories about her, reports Crimson Hexagon, a social media software analytics company based out of Boston.

 One thing the article leaves out is that this negative coverage for Hillary has been going on for over 25 years.

So when my daughter and other millenials say they do not "trust" Hillary Clinton, that should not come as any surprise, because they have been instructed not to for virtually their entire lives.

And so much for that the press has a "liberal bias" BS.

    Hillary's theme song should be "I'm still standing". She's got my vote.

    CNN and MSNBC have been the worst. I stopped watching both! And, to think that Donald Trump really hasn't started on her! I'm sure he'll be horrible too!

    And, so much of it is lies! They are even demonizing her husband to boot!

    She has my vote! She's smart, has more experience than any of the other politicians, has a record of accomplishments and would be a better POTUS than Bernie or Trump ever thought of being!

    More proof of the negativity was on the Lawrence O'Donnell show, The Last Word. Last week Lawrence was begging ANY of the presidential candidates to take on the issue of the horrible living conditions in public housing in New York City. I think he was sure that Bernie would jump right on that issue and become the hero. Bernie went to Vatican City and Hillary answered the call to take on the issue and shine some light on it.
    I thought, great, now Lawrence will be happy and he can give Hillary some credit, which he NEVER does. Did he give her credit? No.
    If someone else watched the show and saw it differently I would be interested to hear about it.

      I watched it and personally I think it was a "set up" question for Bernie to call and answer but his campaign forgot. Hillary called in and it was almost like he was mad about her calling to answer and take on a difficult question that she didn't need to.

      Anyone with eyes who's visited the Clinton Foundation, can see what a difference for the better that choice did for all of Harlem. Part of the problem is people are re litigating Hillary's Husband's presidency, and holding it against her. Now they're picking for transcripts of her speeches, how about how much they give to charity? Their philanthropic works? I'm glad she's sticking to her guns on this one. We need someone who's proven and ready to hit the ground running, work for democratic down race folks, overturn "corporations are people", and the balance of the scotus is at stake.

      The fact is it takes big money to run for President. Citizens United made sure of that. Can't blame the candidates for chasing the money. Good luck to Sanders trying to do it without the PACs. I just don't think it is a realistic goal at this point.

      And I have no doubt that HC will accomplish more positive outcomes for the "little people" than any other candidate.

      Sanders’ 5% number was even more magical than Jeb!’s. And so the entire basis of Sanders’ promises for (promises I wanted to believe) was a historically unprecedented assumption. You can’t base a radical re-imagination of the U.S. economy and the imposition of the largest tax increases in U.S. history on made-up numbers. Sanders was able to find a single economist to weigh in positively on his plan, but that analysis was ripped to shreds by most others, who showed that Sanders’ plan doesn’t add up on its own terms (estimates are something like a $1–2 trillion shortfall even at the 5% growth assumption). So I concluded that the backbone of Sanders’ plan is founded on, functionally, a lie.

      "Sanders accomplishes two deeply disingenuous goals: (i) he sets himself apart from his colleagues in Congress as the only one who is allegedly “true” to his “values,” thereby creating the myth that he is morally superior and incorruptible; and (ii) he turns the necessity of compromise — without which literally nothing can get done in Congress — into a negative, very similar to the Tea Party and hardliners on the far right in Congress, thereby allowing him to transform his failure to compromise and thus his failure to have achieved any workable progressive legislation in 25 years into a “virtue” — a testament to his supposed integrity."

      "So Sanders has gone too far, and character assassination and innuendo have subsumed his campaign. Instead of discussing progressive solutions, he now spends more time arguing that Hillary is “unqualified” because she is corrupt, untrustworthy and immoral based on her fundraising or speech giving."
      "Sanders is out there attacking Obama and Hillary for the Affordable Health Care Act as if the Democrats sold out the progressive agenda in 2009–10 when they fought tooth and nail against lockstep GOP opposition for what they could get and managed the greatest legislative achievement (even though it is far from perfect) in generations, so that 20 million Americans who did not now have health insurance, and Sanders attacks them and suggests they are corporate shills in thrall to the insurance companies? This is outrageous. It is disingenuous. It is wrong. And it is lazy, binary thinking that omits history and political reality. But this is of a piece with Sanders’ entire approach — he’s a professional protester, and little more."
      There seems to always be some reason why someone other than him is responsible for anything that happens. He does not “own” things, and doesn’t allow himself to be held accountable.

    Beyond the negative news reporting, PACS are spending more money on anti-Clinton efforts-- last I checked, $3.5 million against Clinton compared to $50 thousand against Sanders.

    I have always had enormous admiration for Hillary Clinton. She has never deserved the scorn heaped upon her by the GOP and the media. What the GOP hates about her is her intelligence, her ability to articulate what she thinks, and her tenacity in the face of genuine meanness. I think they've known, ever since she came on the national political scene, that she might one day truly come into her own and run for president. She was an excellent first lady (often under horrific circumstances), she served the country and the state of New York very well in the Senate, and she was a wonderful Secretary of State. Until the media attacker her over Benghazi - a non-issue like all of their earlier attacks on her character.

    If America sees their neighbor's children cold and hungry, why are you looking at them. That's the government's job.

    Internet-

    “‘I don’t believe in charities,” said Mayor Sanders, bringing a shocked silence to a packed hotel banquet room. The mayor, who is a socialist, went on to question the ”fundamental concepts on which charities are based” and contended that government, rather than charity organizations, should take over responsibility for social programs,'” the article stated.....

    “It’s no surprise that Bernie Sanders then, and I think even now, really has no real respect or regard for civil society,” Loconte told WND and Radio America. “This is the problem with socialism. It sees such an overwhelming, intrusive role for the state at all levels, there’s no room left for the voluntary society.” ....

    Loconte said Americans have always understood instinctively that neighbor helping neighbor builds better communities than relying on the government to solve problems. He said Europe is learning this hard lesson right now.

    “The overweening state cannot meet human needs, cannot address our deepest moral and social problems,” he said. “It just can’t do it and Bernie Sanders, apparently, has just not learned a thing from American history, from European history and not even the present crisis.”

    From the very start of America, private charity and a vibrant civil society set us apart from the world, according to Loconte. He said Alexis de Tocqueville rightly observed this in his famous “Democracy in America.”

    “He sees something in America that he doesn’t see in Europe,” Leconte said. “What he sees is individuals coming together in associations to tackle problems together, common problems. So he sees a moral energy, civic energy, religious energy used to try to produce a more just and humane society.”

    He said socialism threatens every bit of that American fabric.

    “That’s the genius of a vibrant, independent civil society. It’s something that socialists like Bernie Sanders cannot and will not understand,” Laconte said. “Not only will they not promote it if they get into real positions of power and responsibility in government, they will hinder it. They will undermine it. Ultimately, they’ll destroy it.”....
