Media's finale for Obama, Clinton

Hillary and Obama JulyWith Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton exiting the public stage, it's a given it will happen with much fanfare from liberal media pundits.

The mainstream media is preparing to say "adios" to two of its favorites: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton – so the public should prepare to hear pundits trip all over themselves with effusive praise ... similar in tone, no doubt, to what's been aired over the past several years about the two Democratic politicians.

Media Research Center is offering up the most egregious examples of media bias from 2016. The first example comes from MSNBC's Joy Reid and Andrea Mitchell talking about Mrs. Clinton during the recently concluded presidential campaign:

"If you look at Hillary Clinton's qualifications, I mean, since the Founding Fathers, has anyone tried to run for president with more on their resume?"

"John Quincy Adams, maybe."

"Maybe John Quincy Adams. True, true, true. Jefferson, Adams – I mean you have to go back literally to the 18th century to find somebody with a more packed resume than Hillary Clinton."

Conveniently forgotten were the names Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy.

Is there anyone as beloved by the media as the former first lady/former senator/former secretary of state/former presidential candidate? Perhaps the soon-to-be former president.

GQ actually suggested Obama should be carved into Mount Rushmore. The aforementioned Andrea Mitchell compared his eloquence to that of the "Great Emancipator":

"All of the spirit, all of the creativity of his own brilliant speech-writing. His gift is unique. I don't think we've ever had a president save Lincoln who is as great a speechwriter as this man."

It's unlikely the incoming administration will be on the receiving end of similar praise from the likes of MSNBC and others.
