For John, BLUF: Don't trust the media. Check and recheck. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is about a month old, but it talks to the question of if the mainstream media has a double standard when reporting on Presidential Candidates. The story is out of Brietbart and the writer is Mr John Nolte. The story is "Destroy Trump: With Obama’s Terrorist Pal Off The Table, Media Hurls Guilt-By-Association".
The lede plus one:
Once again proving that the institution known as the DC Media is filled with nothing other than left-wing liars and propagandists, now that Barack Obama’s racist mentor/preacher and terrorist pal are off the table, to destroy Donald Trump, guilt-by-association is again fair game.Between the Reverend Jeremiah Wright♠ and Professor William Ayers, I think the second was more worrisome.♥
Barack Obama spent 20 years at the knee of Reverend “God Damn America” Wright, a racial fanatic our President called his mentor. Obama also worked with and launched his political career in the home of Bill Ayers, an unrepentant domestic terrorist. The President was so worried about this relationship, he lied about it. The DC Media was so worried it, they let him.
Guilt by association is a nasty way of doing business. One would hope for better from our national leaders.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

♠ I don't claim to know everything in this area, but I think the Wikipedia entry for the Reverend is a little over the top, characterizing him as "anti-American". I think he just has a different vision for the nation.
♥ But then Mr Ayers inspired people who went out and killed someone I knew.
