For months, conservatives have noted, quite correctly, that Donald Trump has received inordinately nice media coverage. The Donald has received unprecedented free media, and enjoys a friendly rapport with a slew of top hosts. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and his liberal counterpart Mike Brzezinski have not been bashful about their love for Trump, as have Fox hosts Sean Hannity and Eric Bolling. Even shows that are less than sympathetic to Trump have taken the unprecedented step of allowing him to phone in, where other candidates are usually required to do face-to-face sessions, and he's rarely had to go too far in explaining many of his more popular policy proposals.
Still, many have warned that this sort of treatment is a honeypot meant to lure Trump into a feeling of comfort, until Hillary Clinton has secured the nomination. Then, as the theory goes, the long knives will come out.
Sounds crazy, right? Well, the campaign to get Hillary elected may already be underway.
