it's politically convenient to ignore them.t me explain.the post was hands-off toward jfk's
young children. the kids of camelot were not criticized.lbj's kids were older and out of the house. so were nixon's and ford's. amy carter was school-age when her dad became president. and the post steered clear of amy. reagan and bush 41 had grown ildren. teenager chelsea clinton was off-limits. apparently, chelsea has lifetime hands-off status at msnbc, . . . an ideological partner of the washington post. reporter david shuster was suspended from the network in 2008. his offense? he criticized the then-28 year old's campaigning on behalf of hillary.the post had no problem criticizing the twin daughters of bush 43. they were college freshmen arrested for underage drinking. but there was no criticism when college freshman amy carter
criticized the obama girls. nor should it.but in 2005, the paper published a rather lengthy take-down of the 4
4 and 5 year old adopted children of john roberts. bush 43 nominated roberts to the supreme court.and before christmas, the post publisheded a cartoon depicting senator ted cruz's little girls as monkeys.yup. the washington post won't attack young kids. unless . . . its good politics to do so.to comment, go to behind the headlines dot net. i'm mark hyman. announcer: 3 republican governors. but which governor won national praise for tough leadership handling nine hurricanes? whicicgovernor made his state number one in job creation? which governor led the fight
in his state? and which governor laid out a tough plan to destroy isis months before the paris attacks? jeb bush. right to rise usis responsible for the content of this message. she's always stood strong... ...to get the job done. hillary clinton. she stood up to china... ...and spoke out on women's rights... ...went toe to toe with russia on human rights. the drug and insurance cocoanies spent millions against her... ...but hillary didn't quit until eit million children got health care. i've never been called a quitter and i won't qu on you. she's got what it takes to do the toughest job in the world.
