The media is so apoplectic about trump plunge in the polls they've dragged out the email story

Yet again. Nevermind trump insisting this week over and over he saw non existent video. His statements on the exchange of money demonstrates he clearly is out of his league on these matters.
When will our elected leaders do something about media liars.

On edit: Why aren't they talking about Melania vanilli's illegal immigration story. How she worked in the US while she was NOT legally allowed to?

1. Ah, yes.

The corporate cable infotainment networks presenting themselves as "news."

2. Have to be "balanced"!

Even if one side is self-destructing.

4. My wife is a strong Clinton supporter...

...she's maxed out to the campaign, will go into the field to work for her, and would like to work in her Administration.

And she HATES the way Clinton has handled the email story. The reason this has been "dragged out" again is because Clinton decided to do a Fox News interview, KNOWING that the issue was going to come up, and gave another clumsy, legalistic answer.

Polling shows that Clinton's one major flaw as a candidate is "trustworthiness"; not finding a way to explain and dispose of the email story is going to continue to exacerbate that assessment. This only good news about the email story is that most people have already factored their opinion into their voting choice.

6. Comey said she didn't lie to the FBI. Look she wasn't my first choice, but the way

Our media handles the two candidates differently couldn't be more stark. Can you imagine if Hillary said she saw a video that didn't exist twelve times, or if she made an ad saying trump said are when he really said aren't?
The email story is done, they keep beating a dead horse because they literally have nothing to call out on our side while a psychotic liar is running on theirs.
I made donations, I will walk precincts and drive voters in November 8. Trump is NOT acceptable and we have to do something about the media. They made him possible.

5. And they will continue to do so

From Karl Rove came this story last month (I won't link to Fox News)

Karl Rove: Why Hillary’s email problem is not going away.

Because it fits their narrative that she is dishonest.
