Half-Baked ‘Hillary Doesn’t Tip’ Narrative Now on Display — but Who Tips at Chipotle?

16 April 2015 7:42 AM, PDT

The Hillary Clinton media onslaught we're seeing this week is a combination of three things: 1) It's a relatively slow news cycle (Cuba being removed from the terror list and the murder verdict of a former NFL backup Te aren't really resonating with the viewing public). 2) Brand names like "Clinton" are easier to sell than newer candidates ("new" as in hasn't been a public figure for the past 24 years).

Marco Rubio was the face of the so-called "pro-amnesty" faction of the Republican Party -- a subset of the party who believ in a pathway to citizenship for people currently in the U.S. illegally. That position helped catapult him to media prominence but has become something of a liability for him as he attempts to court staunch conservatives during his 2016 presidential run. »

14 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT
