From the desk of Howard Kurtz: Media, stop trying to crown Hillary Clinton

Editor's note: Howard Kurtz is the host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" and is Newsweek's Washington bureau chief. He is also a contributor to the website Daily Download.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton is front-page news again. What did she do to warrant this treatment?


The Page 1 splash in The New York Times the other day was anicely executed compilation of ... sheer speculation. That is, the same sort of chatter that everyone in the political/media world has engaged in since the day after Barack Obama's re-election. And it immediately launched dozens of cable news segments to rehash the rehash.

What explains this? Whatever happened to having to generate a little news, or even pseudo-news, to warrant some coverage?

    Nice post. I learn one thing more difficult on different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to read content material from other writers and apply a bit of one thing from their store. I’d favor to use some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
