7 Cartoons that Nail the Media's WikiLeaks Coverage

Trump’s name is slapped in bold on the front page of every major newspaper, while news of John Podesta’s leaked emails is buried ten stories deep under a mountain of tax returns, lewd audio, and accusations of sexual assault. The Trump scandals are certainly newsworthy, but - as these cartoons point out - the media shouldn't be using them as a shield to protect Clinton from her own indiscretions.
