For John, BLUF: Yes, the Press would cover for a President Hillary Clinton, rather than doing their job. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Media watchdogs snoozed while Obama expanded executive power. They'll wake up and bite when it's Trump.Here is the lede:
The press has done a lousy job of protecting American freedoms in recent years. But I have a modest proposal♠ for improving press performance: Elect a white male Republican.Like Benghazi, where the press totally ignored how the Administration stepped all over the Freedom of the Press. It was a little item, a 14 minute movie trailer, but those little precedents can be used against the big boys later on.♥♦ Short sighted on the part of the Press.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

♠ Note for Jack: "modest proposal" is a Republican "dog whistle" for political satire.
♥ Lawyers have no shame.
♦ No, I do not think the Administration's actions lead to the death of the four Americans in Benghazi. Do I think they should have been more forward leaning? Yes, in the event the terrorists had other targets in mind.
