Obama Says Clinton Not Treated Fairly by Media During Election

Obama Says Clinton Not Treated Fairly by Media During Election

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Barack Obama said Friday that Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was not treated fairly by the media surrounding the Russian hacking incident.
"I don't think she was treated fairly during the election, I think the coverage of her and the issues was troubling," Obama told his last White House press conference.
The outgoing president expressed his grievances to the journalists who packed the White House briefing room, saying "I'm finding it a little curious that everybody is suddenly acting surprised that this looked like it was disadvantaging Hillary Clinton."
"I do think it's worth us reflecting how it is that a presidential election of such importance, of such moment, with so many big issues at stake and such a contrast between the candidates came to be dominated by a bunch of these leaks. What is it about our political system that made us vulnerable to these kinds of potential manipulations?"
Obama's words echoed earlier remarks by Clinton, who said Thursday that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and leaked emails of its officials and it was because Russian President Vladimir Putin held a personal grudge against her. (Xinhua)
