'Pro-Hillary Paper'?
Topic: Newsmax
A March 14 NewsMax article claimed without evidence that the Journal News in Westchester County, New York, which NewsMax described as "Hillary Clinton's hometown newspaper," is a "pro-Hillary paper."

What NewsMax thinks is evidence of its claim is a March 12 Journal News article noting that Hillary's current leading opponent for her New York Senate seat, John Spencer, has an "albatross of anger." NewsMax asserted that with this article, the Journal News "is doing its best to deflect charges that the top Democrat has an anger management problem."

But it's NewsMax and other conservative outlets, as well as Republican National Committee leader Ken Mehlman, who put this issue into play by raising it about Hillary. It's a legitimate campaign issue now, and it's likely that the Journal News would not have done the article had NewsMax, etc., not brought it up.

For NewsMax to suggest that looking at Spencer's anger-management issues is an "attack" is highly disingenuous. And would a "pro-Hillary paper" run an article on the wide spectrum of anti-Clinton protesters, as the Journal News did on March 11?
