When it comes to the current scandal surrounding Democrat Hillary Clinton, the gossip/celebrity site TMZ is doing the job the mainstream media won’t. In the search for answers, TMZ was willing to send a staffer to the airport in the hopes that Ms. Clinton would answer questions about the scandal brewing around her decision to use only a private email hosted on her private server while serving as Secretary of State.

Two questions:

  1. Why wasn’t the mainstream media camped out with TMZ in the hopes of getting some answers?
  2. Why isn’t this video of Hillary refusing to answer running every fifteen minutes on cable news? I haven’t seen it once.

The answer of course is simple: Democrats sure got it good.

How many journalists were dispatched to hunt down Republican Scott Walker in order to buttonhole him about Obama’s patriotism and faith? How many journalists camped out in front of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson’s home? How many journalists relentlessly hunted Sarah Palin for years without there even being a scandal to pursue?

And yet, not ONE mainstream media outlet bothered to send even an intern to the airport. Not CNN, not NBC News, not the Washington Post or the New York Times.

A plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia today. CNN had a staffer there within minutes.
