Default 1992 Bimbo vs 2018 Bimbo and the press

Betsey Wright coined the term "bimbo eruption", so my use of the term "bimbo" is not sexist, merely using the vernacular that was presented to us during the President Clinton years by a Clinton supporter.

During the Clinton years, (most of) the press seemed to treat bimbo statements about democrats with skepticism.

During the Trump years, (most of) the press seems to treat bimbo statements about republicans as gospel.

Just my observation.

During the Clinton years it was private sexual conduct between consenting adults, nothing to see here move on, literally.

Under Trump it's destroy attorney client privilege with a fishing expedition plundering confidential records then coercing the attorney to plead guilty to charges for acts that are not crimes for the purpose of smearing Trump. Not only is it an attack on the heretofore sacred relationship between client and attorney, it is a gross perversion of prosecutorial authority. It is another example of the Resistance credo of the ends justify the means.

It really is amazing to me how so much of the press is openly showing their bias. They no longer even pretend to hide it.
News used to be about who, what, why, how, where, but it is increasingly becoming about opinion. Oftentimes, the opinions are mere subtle phrases interjected into the reporter's writings, but they do exist.

At least they are showing who they are instead of trying to LOOK unbiased.
It took many years to get them out of the closet.

Agreed but the problem is the media claims privilege and protection based on their claim of objectivity and interest in facts. Glenn Thrush still has WH credentials after it was revealed he literally had Hillary's campaign director edit his articles before submitting them for publication.
