From a conservative standpoint, this is the beautiful thing about the 50/50 split of the left between Hillary (who wants to be the first female president) and Obama (who wants to be the first black president). Both of them have lots of friends in the mainstream news media. The news media is not some sort of monolithic hive mind where everybody thinks the same way on each and every issue, and we're seeing an example of that right now. Half of them want Hillary to be president, and the other half want Obama to be president.
So when Hillary wants everybody to see some dirt on Obama, Hillary's minions go to their friends in the media.
And when Obama wants everybody to see spome dirt on Hillary, Obama's minions go to their own friends in the media.
And all conservatives have to do is unfold some lawnchairs, pop some popcorn and watch the fireworks.
