Trump vs. Hillary in 'The Lying Game'

From the Washington Post, op-ed entitled "Spiro Agnew's ghost lives on in the 2016 campaign":

The theme is that the conservative media have made it very difficult for the regular media to criticize conservative political figures, lest they demonstrate liberal bias.    I recommend a full read.  But this paragraph was a standout:

"The issue is not asking the media to shy away from holding Clinton accountable. But journalists need to ask whether they have created a narrative about Clinton that paints her as less trustworthy than Trump even though the factual evidence is overwhelming that he lies far more than she does."
I underlined that last part.

Republicans seeking to elect inveterate liar to Presidency:  News at 11.
