Fiery 'Spectacularly Hack-Tastic': Benson Rips Amanpour's Hillary Defense
CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Monday weighed in on the media coverage of Hillary Clinton's health problems, declaring that criticizing the Clinton campaign’s lack of transparency is sexist.
"Can’t a girl have a sick day or two?" Amanpour asked. "Don’t get me started, because when it comes to overqualified women having to try a hundred times harder than under qualified men to get a break, or even a level playing field, well, we know that story."
On "Outnumbered" today, Guy Benson said that Amanpour's defense of Clinton was "spectacularly hack-tastic."
"It is amazing to me that she attempted a spin on Hillary's behalf that her own campaign didn't even ... try," Benson said. "They admitted they should have been more transparent."
"And here's a journalist making excuses that they shouldn't have been that transparent and transparency isn't an issue."
