Why is there more news coverage of Secretary Clinton falling while getting on a plane than there is of all the hard work she does daily to bring peace and stability to the U.S. and the world?
Jesus this is annoying. I just went on YouTube to try to find a video of her Townterview the other day in Abu Dhabi (there is only a snippet which I posted the other day) and all the most recent videos are from news organizations showing the video of her falling yesterday.
I’m glad she wasn’t hurt when she fell but my God the media loves to watch someone do just that–fall- physically, politically, emotionally. Do we need to see the video of her falling 72 times? No, we don’t. Hillary Clinton does a yeoman’s job dealing with the non-stop public scrutiny and total absence of privacy but I do believe she is entitled to some. She is entitled to have dinner with family and friends without having the cell phone photos being posted all over the internet (which is why you won’t see those photos on this site, even if they are sent to me). I understand that cameras were already running when she fell on the plane- all her departures are covered by traveling media and local media and I have no problem with that. What I object to is the constant replay of the video. I’d like to think it was solely out of concern for her safety but I doubt that is the case.
