We are well into 2018 and Hillary Clinton is still complaining about her failed 2016 presidential bid.
On Sunday, Crooked Hillary lashed out at alternative media coverage of the 2016 presidential election then praised efforts to crackdown on conservative outlets .
Hillary Clinton attacked alternative media during a speech at Pen America World Voices Festival on Sunday.
Clinton’s speech was primarily focused on the media climate under President Trump and cited analysis from Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review to argue the media’s ‘false equivalency’ in its coverage of the 2016 presidential election was “corrosive” and had a “leveling effect that opens the door to charlatans.”
Hillary laments how the political coverage was influenced by the right-wing media ecosystem and other factors to depart from normal journalistic standards.
Crooked Hillary then praised efforts to crackdown on conservative outlets to ‘avoid errors that helped Trump into the White House’.
“Now thankfully, in the races since 2016, coverage has been more straightforward and fact-based – perhaps because the races were close and inherently exciting – but I believe it also reflects an effort to avoid the errors that helped Mr. Trump to the White House. And I hope we’ll see more of this in the years to come,” Hillary said.
New York Times reporter Sopan Deb covered Hillary Clinton’s speech and posted the transcription to Twitter.

This isn’t the first time Hillary Clinton has blamed alternative media for negative coverage of her emails and other scandals.
Alternative media is one of her many scapegoats for her crushing loss.
