This Week in Media Bias History: Fawning for Hillary Is ‘Rooting for Your Team’

Sometimes reporters just come out and say it. On March 7, 1994, Time journalist Margaret Carlson described favorable coverage for Hillary Clinton as simply “rooting for your team.” Other examples from This Week in Media Bias History include: Newsweek lamenting the “victims of capitalism,” Brian Williams insisting his work has been “cleansed” of opinion and another journalist denying the existence of partisan press.
