Michael Goodwin: The Hillary Clinton Protection Racket at the Washington Post is alive and well

In singling out the New York Times for its biased political coverage, I have slighted the Hillary Clinton Protection Racket at the Washington Post. I hereby atone.

Clinton hacked and hacked so much into the microphone Monday as she tried to give a Labor Day speech in Cleveland that her coughing was the news.

But not at the Washington Post, which ran to rescue its candidate. Its lead political blogger, Chris Cillizza, wrote a scathing piece to debunk the idea that Clinton is hiding a serious health issue.

“This is a totally ridiculous issue — for lots of reasons,” Cillizza declared. “The simple fact is that there is zero evidence that anything is seriously wrong with Clinton.”

He went on to offer Donald Trump unsolicited, and almost certainly insincere, advice, saying the issue “is a surefire loser in the fall.”
