Earlier this month, Rand Paul announced his run for the White House in 2016, and was immediately dragged through the mud by the mainstream media. Why is the media being so harsh on Rand Paul?
In short, it’s because they just don’t like him. His attitude toward them, coupled with their overbearing love for other candidates, makes him an easy media target.
However, a more fitting question could be, why does the media love covering Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush so much?
Comparing Bush to Clinton is almost like comparing Coke to Pepsi, and the media is consuming it like they haven’t had a drink in weeks. Since many candidates other than Clinton and Bush are outside of the establishment or status quo, they are treated differently, by being given less coverage.
