Media on another planet after trashing Starr

Robert Mueller new picIt's not breaking news that the mainstream media is cheering for the Trump-Russia collusion investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller, but the media hasn't always been a cheerleader for the man facing off against the president.

For four years, from 1994 to 1998, Ken Starr (pictured below) was the independent counsel for the Whitewater controversy, which eventually outed the Monica Lewinsky affair and ended in the impeachment of President Bill Clinton for lying under oath to investigators.

From the beginning, however, the press had it in for Starr who was accused of being a "Republican partisan," an "overzealous prosecutor," and even became the target of whispered innuendo, courtesy of the Clinton-led White House, about his own sex life.

"What we have here is just this blatant double standard," says Houck, "where they would tar and feather Ken Starr, raising everything from suggesting that he's a crony, or his obsession with sex, or that his motivations were purely political, whereas Robert Mueller and the leadership of the FBI are sterling and they only have the best of intentions."

It's also true, he concedes, that some Trump supporters, conservatives and congressional Republicans are also talking differently about a special prosecutor with the political shoe on the other foot.

Yet the MRC analyst is watching the press, and he says the blind hatred the press has for Trump is unlike anything he's ever seen.

"These people have a level of obsession," he observes, "that it's not too much to say it's dangerously unhealthy."
