Double Standard in Prez Race Coverage?

Does it seem Hillary Clinton gets more attention on her policy announcements than Donald Trump?

SMU Political Science Professor Matthew Wilson says she does and it’s not always a good thing.

“Specific policy initiatives that Clinton offers both get more attention but also much closer scrutiny and criticism.”

Wilson says Trump seen by the media and the electorate as a force of nature who almost exist off the policy grid.

He adds Trump’s policy positions would get more attention if he wouldn’t change his mind so often.

“Just because Donald Trump proposes a policy today, doesn’t mean that he’ll hold the same policy two weeks from now.”

Wilson thinks Trump is still having issues with being taken seriously as a candidate which also keeps the media from taking a closer look when he rolls out a new policy.
