37. I still don't think so...

 

I agree that they hit HIllary on stupid issues. But I can't say that they didn't cover all the ridiculous stuff he did and said. They did, but there was just so fucking much of it that there was no way they would be able to get a combined, coordinated, concerted focus on all of it.

And even when they did, like say when every single news network and even entertainment shows were talking about the pussy grabbing tape......it didn't do anything to his support. Not a goddamned thing. So what makes people think that if they covered say......the Putin connection more, that it would have had any more of an impact? If anything it would probably have less of an impact since it was a much more obtuse scandal and people would just end up tuning out. I think the media did the right thing by focusing on the most dynamic and easily digestible scandals and outrageous things. But there' little evidence to say that if they focused more on other stuff (which was in most cases less damning or less easily digested or understood) that it would have had any more impact than him basically admitting to sexual assault.
