Legacy Media Critique 4: Fox and Hound News

Okay Ding Dongs, listen up:

Today is Fox News:

Put yourself in Hillary’s shoes and pantsuit. Imagine your name in history books, saving the world, ending climate change, building a better mousetrap, your presidential library, and then you get this; ctkjet

 

That’s crushing, and the only way to retain your sanity comes in the form of visualizing achieving your goals of Being President. Hilary, who really has gotten a lot farther an closer to president than any woman in history, has to either keep trying or reconcile herself to anything less than her goal, which won’t happen. I don’t think you can run for president and get that close without taking a deep psychological wound, nor can you give up a dream like that after getting so close. Think comic books, does the super villain get his death ray blown up and retire? No, they try a new plan.

STUPID FOX NEWS DOES THAT AUTO VIDEO LOAD THING TOO, PLEASE LET ME HAVE JUST TEXT ARTICLES. ARE YOU TRYING TO GET PEOPLE FIRED?

Then this: A third presidential run — after two grueling campaigns that both ended in defeat to a rival political sensation who captured the imagination of voters — could be a stretch for the former secretary of state, senator and first lady.

They could say that about anyone, and if she had won they would say that about her.

Then the writer annoys this reader by using the term “elder statesman” first to describe a possible role for Hillary, and then later down to describe Harry Reid.

Can someone explain the difference between Elder Statesman and “old politician?” This is a nebbishing detail, but it sounds bogus. Other than the article is pretty good.
