Media Bias?

Remember this guy?

Back in 2008 when he was running for president and in apparent good health, all the media could talk about was his health and could he make it through a McCain administration alive.

Remember this guy? 

Remember all the questioning about whether or not he was "too old" to be president?

Hillary Clinton will be the same age as Ronald Reagan if elected, she turns 69 years old this October.

Back in 2008 US News went with this headline:

McCain's Age and Past Health Problems Could Be An Issue in the Presidential Race

An article that used lines like this: "Especially when that nominee visibly wears the toll of a long and, at times, extraordinarily difficult life."

How do they address Clinton? With this headline:

Hillary's Health: Conspiracy or Concern?

And lines like this: "Fox News, the Drudge Report, and a slew of conservative or conspiracy-theory themed sites on the internet are raising questions about Clinton's medical fitness to be president..."

So if it's a Republican candidate it "could be an issue" if it's a Democrat it's a conspiracy.

 McCain's Age 

Hillary's Health 

In 2008 CNN went with "McCain faces questions on Age and Health"

Today on CNN any discussion or questioning of Hillary's health is "fearmongering" and "conspiracy theories" and "reckless" 

To put it in polite terms...

Go perform a biologically impossible act upon thyself.
