CNN used some very wild and crazy, almost demonic, video editing to transfigure Hillary Clinton on Wednesday’s New Day. Correspondent Jeff Zeleny ran footage from the Democratic presidential candidate’s victory speech on Tuesday night that transformed Mrs. Clinton into a glowing godlike figure. Then he hyped in a voice over how Mrs. Clinton was “savoring a triumph in her long Democratic primary fight — exactly eight years after extinguishing her first trailblazing campaign.”
By the way, don’t believe the hype. Hillary is not the first female nominee for president.
On Wednesday, WMAL host Chris Plante (who has presented at the MRC’s annual Dishonors Awards) used his radio show, website, and Facebook page to spotlight how CNN’s morning show turned Mrs. Clinton into a “golden god.” Plante’s website labeled the odd video modification a “propaganda trainwreck.”
I think Hillary as a Golden Cow is more appropriate…
