The sheer volume and scope of daily revelations about Hillary Clinton’s and Donald Trump’s indiscretions are overwhelming the media.
Wolf Blitzer, host of The Situation Room on CNN, complained to WikiLeaks. “We need to slow down the flow of news. In this campaign news breaks all the time and by the time we fix it, it breaks again. We cannot keep up because we’re exhausted.”
A weary Brian Williams, an MSNBC anchor, told viewers last night from the surface of the moon where he said he was reporting, “News stories about hacked emails, deleted emails, voter fraud, groping women, leaked tax returns, demagoguery and the Specter of Bill Clinton appear almost hourly. They are taking their toll on us. We can only do so much.”
FOX News chief Bill Shine chimed in as well. “We hired more editors, reporters and producers so we could continue fair and balance coverage of Hillary’s missing emails, Hillary’s Benghazi problem, Hillary’s mishandling of classified material, Hillary’s public and private positions on issues, Hillary’s Wall Street speeches, Hillary’s pay-for-play between her foundation and the State Department, and the shrill of Hillary’s voice. We are tired.”
The election is Tuesday November 8, 2016. Stay informed with Alan Boardman’s semi-comprehensive election coverage.
