What ever happened to equal media time for the Presidential Candidates?

My understanding is that the candidates are supposed to receive EQUAL air time during a presidential campaign. It seems to me that the crazier he is, the more time he gets in the media - the very media he calls dishonest and shuns from his events! Turn on any television or radio political or news channel and you tell me if the coverage is equal.

Seems to me that not only does Hillary, a woman, get far less recognition and coverage for all the GOOD she is doing as she tries to educate America on her plans (yes - she has PLANS!) for America, but her opponent gets MORE coverage for lying, cheating, inciting violence, and having absolutely NO plan or NOTHING of importance to say.

It seems to me that the media would rather hand out airtime to a, at the very least, severely unbalanced individual with anger issues, daddy issues, mommy issues and a 4th grade vocabulary and understanding of current events. While Hillary and her surrogates are basically given whatever is left, or brought on to try to provide facts - that are easily uncovered by the very media who allows them to be aired on their programming, and dispute the lies.

In the end - turn on your radio or television - who are you hearing about?

Why is a horse race more important than our country's safety and well being? Have we really come to this?

I want to see EQUAL coverage for the candidates. Every time he calls in and his call is accepted on a show, Hillary gets that same amount of air time. Every time a surrogate comes on and is able to spread ignorance hate and lies, they should have a surrogate of Hillary standing split screen, giving the facts - RIGHT THEN AND THERE.

Otherwise - yes, this race is rigged - and it will be rigged in Russia's direction.

Wake up! It is time for the PEOPLE to show how very very quickly they can affect change. We need to use our voice and our pocketbooks - organized write in campaign s and boycott advertisers of shows that are not giving equal airtime to the Democratic message, or are not immediately disputing GOP outright lies and hate. It sends a message very quickly - I've seen it work many times over the past 10 years.

Orlando, who may turn blue this year!
