because the smear campaign not just a primary candidate but a two-term president never seems to end, and journalist "ethics" and rules are ripped to shreds, lies made up so casually, etc.

How many smears are too many? Where are the apologies for:
1. Email "scandal"
2. Clinton Foundation attacks
3. Unsubstantiated "favor" trading at state
4. Whitewater
5. Perot myth
6. Travel"gate"
7. File"gate"
8. Vince Foster
9. Broaddick and other faux stories
10. Racism allegations from 2008
11. Allowing an affair to become impeachment

the list could go on. enough is enough. The media never attacked the smears as they did the "born in Kenya" bit. They treated the Bushes much better than the Clintons, for no rational reason. I think the media needs to start apologizing, dead serious.
