"Even after all these months, I still don't completely understand why Clinton's essentially centrist campaign for the White House ginned up so much open contempt from the press corps, which has felt completely comfortable addressing her in an openly derogatory and condescending manner. The issue of her convention involvement simply allowed the press to whack her around like a piñata one more time, regardless of the facts."—Eric Boehlert, in a must-read piece bluntly titled "Hillary Clinton speaks at convention. The press concocts a story." Seriously, I cannot recommend it enough. Go read the whole thing. Even if, and perhaps especially, if you're under the impression that Clinton is deliberately divisive or that there is animosity between Camps Obama and Clinton.
