The Czar is too often right. No, he’s not always right, like ‘Puter, but he’s often right enough that he gets a little tired of it. What are we on about? This whole Clinton/Biden thing.
More specifically, the Czar’s long-held position* that the Mainstream Media despises the thought of supporting Hillary Clinton. They sure aren’t going to like forcing all of you to pull the lever for her on Election Day, and if anyone else ran against her in the primary who was more like President Obama, that would be so much better.
So when news about Hillary was good, it was downplayed. When news about Hillary was bad, there was carefully phrased coverage. No, nothing outright against her—you don’t beg a potential feeding hand to slap you—but little subtext questions: “Latest poll shows GOP rising; is Hillary done?” or “Does Sanders really have a chance?” You know: nothing outright against her, but peppering doubt and questions into the public’s mind.
And unquestionably, the MSM wanted Sen. Elizabeth Warren to be their person. “What does Warren want for lunch? Is Hillary washed up?” and other headlines portrayed Warren in an encouraging light, while still jabbing at Clinton.
Folks on the Right have scratched their chins too long about the MSM. Why do they keep supporting Clinton, even though she treats them badly? Well, of course, the MSM is perfectly aware that Hillary Clinton is going to treat them like crap; she always has. But what if she wins? Do you think she will be a loving and forgiving President, or a petty and wrathful one? So these little digs at her are reminders that the MSM, too, has a say in her campaign chances.
With news that Joe Biden is considering a serious run for the Presidency, and has met with Warren as a potential running mate, the MSM has been beside themselves with joy. Maybe you had 10-12 news stories in your feed about the email wiping. Now you’ll have 40-50 stories about the Magic Meeting between Joe Biden (whom you will learn everybody loves) and Elizabeth Warren (clearly one of the foremost intellectuals in the Senate or something).
For a third time, the Czar reminds you that they’re not calling Hillary Clinton over and done; but they are overly celebratory over the Biden/Warren meeting. Overly. Overly. Overly. And while you might not have heard that just about any individual Republican candidate can beat Donald Trump head-to-head in the polls, you surely have heard that Biden is edging out Clinton in the polls.
And that too is a message to Hillary Clinton.

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
