Salon Editor: Media 'Hates' Hillary

Monday, 05 May 2008 05:15 PM

The editor-in-chief of the liberal online magazine Salon, Joan Walsh, says her colleagues in the media “hate” Hillary Clinton — while they’re “swooning” over her Democratic presidential rival Barack Obama.

Appearing on CNN on Sunday, Walsh said: "I was struck when I got to Iowa and New Hampshire in January by how our media colleagues were just swooning over Barack Obama. That is not too strong a word. They were swooning.

“I was at a speech, I remember it, I will write about it some day, in Manchester, and the biggest names in our business were there, and they could repeat some of his speech lines to one another. It was like a Bruce Springsteen concert where the fans sing along.

“And you know, I respected it to some extent. He's a towering political figure. Of our generation, he's probably the best politician, he's inspiring. And reporters, white reporters, black reporters, reporters of every race, we want to get beyond racism in America. So he was inspiring. The downside, though, is that they hate, hate Hillary Clinton, most of them.”

Walsh added: “Hate is not too strong a word. So there was such a double standard.”
