Bloomberg ran a story that Nancy Reagan was endorsing Hillary Clinton. It was a fake story that Bloomberg picked up without hesitating and ran.
It had to yank the story and apologize.
Who the hell would even believe a story like that? The Media. Just like liberal reporters immediately believed [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] stormed out of an interview and turned out the lights — another story that was not true in any way, shape, or form — the press believed this because they want to believe.
Rather bluntly — Hillary Clinton sucks as a candidate. She’s an old woman who everybody knows and only partisans really like. The more she is on the public stage, the more quickly people get tired of her. So she can only run a video announcement coupled with highly controlled events with a worshipful press.
The press cannot see it, because they are partisans. And they’ll fall all over themselves to not see the geriatric terrible campaigner behind the curtain as they establish a mythology for 2016.
Bloomberg fell for the Nancy Reagan story because they’re liberal hacks and they want to believe their mythology.
