You would think that the supposedly inquisitive national news media would be clamoring for facts about Hillary Clinton’s health in the wake of her collapse at the 9/11 memorial service on Sunday, but that has not been the case. In fact, the media’s reaction has been split between defensive and detached. Some have taken to the airwaves and Interwebz to argue that Hillary’s medical episode was a case of “nothing to see here.” Others have been more cautious, imploring Clinton to get some tests done before heading out to California before stating that she’s probably fine.
It’s been astounding.
Hillary Clinton has suffered several major medical events over the last few years, and through the course of the campaign she’s hardly seemed “robust.” Now, she collapses and the media responds with indifference? Their desire to see her win must be tremendous.
More than a little creepy conservatives are cheering on a 70 year old woman who overheated… no there there.

There is no evidence of Clinton fainting. The video of her getting in the van does not show Clinton fainting. Just trying to inject facts.

A few folks in the media noticed the questionable coverage:
There's nothing to see here.

And some others noticed that the mainstream media was going to have to start paying attention to Hillary’s failing health.
