Andrea Mitchell Laments 'Brutal' Attack on Hillary From 'Anti-Clinton Website'

' ... a campaign already brutal, two years before it's begun'

NBC Frets Over 'Brutal' Attack on Hillary From 'Anti-Clinton' Website (NewsBusters)

Instead of treating Hillary Clinton as a possible presidential candidate who must be vetted, NBC framed her as a sympathetic victim of a "brutal" and personal attack on Monday's Nightly News.

Andrea Mitchell bemoaned that "inflammatory excerpts" of "once-private papers" of Clinton's close friend were published an "anti-Clinton website" -- the conservative news site Washington Free Beacon. Would NBC say that an "anti-Cruz" website attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) if he faced a similar report?
