I am concerned with the author's premise which is founded only upon emotional speculation. Only Hillary, during her primary, which was based on her own very strict control of information to the press and what was disseminated, has manifested a necessity to control media, either print or electronic. Even during the process of roping the press away from her like mere beasts, her complete lack of openness to the press and her recent demands that Drudge, FOX and others who do not commit subserviently to her version of facts, belie her unrestricted desire to control and suppress information.
Bernie himself questioned the lack of freedom of press during his campaign or did we suddenly forget? The desire to use the press to suppress all other information not to an individual's desire to manipulate and limit information to the population is not nor should it be a goal. Indeed, America's greatness has always been founded on the freedom of exchange of ideas. Even after WW1, communists convicted of incitement to riot and of treasonous statement were relieved of their convictions by the US Supreme Court in their ruling that the first amendment gauranteed their freedom of speech regardless of their outrage to public opinion.
President Obama, as enlightened and effective as he was, was one of the first presidents to request control of information Americans should be allowed to read or see. He has more than once called for FOX to be shut down. These moments were never his finest as it evinced a fear of dissent, the one trait no American President should ever publicly manifest. Bernie and at times, Trump and Obama question what they perceived as the so called mainstream media's misinformation. But of these three only Obama has supported suppression.
Hillary has been recorded criticizing Obama, his supporters, Bernie and his supporters and now Trumpnand his supporters. She has been very vocal
about her own distrust of the media. She has gone overboard in controlling press conferences, shutting down questions from the press, rehearsing "impromptu" question and answer town halls and even sending in advance fluff questions to interviewers about favorite pizza, tv shows and how she likes being s grandmother. This obvious need to control the media and criticize those who disagree all define a person who will not tolerate dissent or dissemination of information she does not favor. In other words, Hillary, moreso than Obama or Trump is simply not inclined to accept first amendment freedoms of speech or press.
Again, it was the press, through very careful control of government leaders in office that destroyed Bernie to allow Hillary her long awaited opportunity to have eventual complete control.
Thus, the author must now be asked, Are you in all honesty stating a speculative premise against one candidate in favor of another with a confirmed history and open desire to control and suppress a freedom you enjoy and our country relies upon for exchange of reason and ideas?
