The horrors about Cheeto Benito kept raining down at the rate of three to ten a day, and the press couldn't keep up. They'd report it and move on to the next one, while perseverating about the e-mails as if they were a combination of Watergate and Benedict Arnold, because they had to "balance" everything they reported about Dump with something negative about Hillary. That is an insane concept of journalism. However, an apology is hardly enough.CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin says he regrets his role in pushing a “false equivalence” between Hillary Clinton's scandals and President Trump's controversies during the 2016 election. In an interview on Larry Wilmore’s “Black on the Air” podcast published earlier this month, Toobin told Wilmore that he feels he is “somewhat responsible” for a media climate that falsely compared Clinton and Trump.“I think there was a lot of false equivalence in the 2016 campaign,” Toobin told Wilmore, the Washington Post reported Monday. “Every time we said something, pointed out something about Donald Trump, whether it was his business interests, or ‘grab 'em by the pussy,’ we felt like, ‘Oh, we gotta … say something bad about Hillary. I think it led to a sense of false equivalence that was misleading, and I regret my role in doing that,” he added.
