Hard Left Hits?
A Democrat argues that liberal journalists are actually tougher on...Democrats:
During remarks at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., at an event titled “The President and the Press: The First Amendment in the First 100 Days,” Palmieri said that the media covers infighting in presidential administrations in order to avoid covering issues, which she said leads to reporters revealing their biases.I guess they have a different definition of "tough" than other people...
Palmieri said that she thinks “most journalists are probably leaning more to the left than the right.”
“Think about the kind of person that’s drawn to do this as a career,” Palmieri said. “They believe in government, they think politics matters, they like it, they find it interesting, they don’t make a lot of money. … But what I’ve found is it means they come after us harder on what I describe as the crap. They come after us harder on the palace intrigue, on the process, on things that really shouldn’t matter.”
Palmieri, who previously worked in the Barack Obama and Bill Clinton administrations, also argued that reporters are likely to be harder on Democrats in general.
