Sometimes a simple point can be profound.
During her appearance on Fox News Channel’s “TheFive” Friday, Fox News contributor Meghan McCain called the mainstream media’s double standard in its coverage of the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees “egregious.”
McCain, who is no fan of Donald Trump, gave as an example the widespread media coverage given to Trump’s assertion that President Obama, in essence, founded the Islamic State, while giving Hillary Clinton’s email revelations a big ho-hum.

“When Donald Trump says things it offends people sometimes,” she told the panel. “When Hillary makes mistakes people die.”
McCain then referred to Iran’s announcement last week that they executed nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri for spying on behalf of the United States after his name was referred to in a July, 2010 Clinton email as “our friend.”
“Why aren’t we talking about this, talking about the fact that she put our national security at risk?” she asked. “It’s so egregious. This is real-life information about our CIA informants being murdered, and it’s getting no coverage, except on this channel.”

Although people weren’t necessarily fans of McCain or her father, Sen. John McCain, they could find agreement in her reasoning.
