The media defense of Hillary Clinton is ratcheting up a notch. Yesterday, National Journal asked if some of Hillary’s email as secretary of state was “unnecessarily classified.”

Today, The Atlantic adds another wagon to the circle around Hillary:

We can always count on a certain segment of the media to let us know what Hillary would like to say.

Do these kinds of ridiculous stretches actually do more harm than good for Hillary?

There’s no shortage of media outlets trying to help, but the effort has been an epic fail.
