Democrats are worried about Hillary Clinton's ability to win the White House
because the mainstream media are treating her like it typically treats Republicans in the wake of her current email controversy, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Thursday.
"If Hillary's being treated like a Republican, it means she's being treated like Sarah Palin to an extent, which means the media's out to destroy her —
which means it could," Limbaugh said on his program.
Limbaugh said the media scrutiny on the former secretary of state is not nearly as focused and targeted as when they go after a Republican.
"But it's different this time, and the Democrat Party powers that be are worried that Hillary doesn't have the ability to overcome this and the overall image that's being created by this media attack," he said.
Not everyone in the media is attacking Clinton, he said. Younger journalists who don't remember Clinton and her husband, President Bill Clinton, from their days in the White House are more likely to go easy on her, Limbaugh said.
"But most of the media from the '90s that covered the Clintons and adored them and loved them, they're the ones not excited about all this and not eager to help her through it," he said.
