It really has been abysmal.
Trump supporters think the media coverage is “rigged” against him simply because they cover what he says and does. But the media really does hate Clinton, and not for the better reasons. They don’t slam her for policy. They don’t even discuss policy. Yes, the coverage is sexist.
I’m sure this will be interpreted by a few as support for Clinton, but I remarked on this even during the Sanders campaign. The media loved Sanders. Didn’t take him seriously until way too late, but they loved him. He’s more likable. But that’s not the point.
