Hat Tip: The Daily Caller
Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.
So, let’s see what we have for you this week…

Members of the mainstream media often don’t mention their conflicts of interest. So it was refreshing when Jorge Ramos of Univision noted on air during the March 9th Democratic debate that his daughter works for the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Ramos should be credited for asking Mrs. Clinton tough questions about her private email server and Benghazi. “Secretary Clinton, on the night of the attacks in Benghazi, you sent an e-mail to your daughter Chelsea saying, that al Qaeda was responsible for the killing of the Americans,” said Ramos. “However, some of the families claim that you lied to them…Secretary Clinton, did you lie to them?”
Hillary Clinton has lied about the events of that night, repeatedly, and continues to still blame the YouTube video for the attacks.

When will socialist Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) be held accountable by the media for his own revolutionary and hateful rhetoric?
“Not Donald Trump, not anyone else will be successful in dividing us based on race or our country of origin,” says Sanders. Meredith Warren, a Republican political analyst and consultant, counters: “But Sanders should take a long look in the mirror. Both he and many of his Democratic cohort, including Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, are fiercely pushing a campaign message specifically intended to divide America along different lines—economic ones.”
Warren, a graduate of Boston University’s College of Communication, where she majored in broadcast journalism, should be congratulated for drawing attention to the media’s double standard.
On one occasion, during an appearance on Iowa public television, Sanders was asked about promoting class warfare. He turned the question around and insisted that class warfare was being waged by the rich against the middle class and the poor.
