Kathryn at The Corner on Matt Lauer’s obvious bias today when he interviewed Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton:
This morning, the Today Show host interviewed Mitt Romney with hostility and Hillary Clinton with protective understanding. He asked Mitt if he’s a liar buying the election and he asked Hillary about her emotions, both aired near the top of the show, Romney was live, Hillary was taped. I hate being the predictable conservative complaining about the mainstream media, but I know what I saw
You really have to watch the video yourself to see the underlining bias here. Example:
Lauer to Romney – What do you think about McCain saying your trying to buy this election?
Lauer to Romney – Is it all about your money?
Lauer to Romney – Is this state a referendum on your viability as a Presidential candidate?
But when he gets to Hillary his tone softens and he asks:
Lauer to Hillary – The strain started to show a bit?
Lauer to Hillary – I would say its a defining moment in your political life!
Lauer to Hillary – Share how you feel about the comparison between Obama and MLK?
It’s actually quite funny to see it back to back like this.
