Video matching Part Six of NewsBusters' Special Report: Hillary Clinton's Media Fan Club. This installment provides examples of journalists trying to wave away her many scandals — from Whitewater in the 1990s to current Benghazi and the e-mail scandals — by casting her as a victim, or suggesting she’s too valuable to hold accountable, or that the scandals are simply the fevered exaggeration of her partisan opponents.

Read Part One: Journalists celebrating Clinton as the “successful,” “remarkable,” “fabulous,” “sexy” and “pious” “icon of American womanhood.”

Part Two: Journalists disparage Clinton's critics as sexist retrogrades upset by a “cultural pioneer.”

Part Three: Journalists echo Hillary’s attempt to blame all of her and her husband’s scandals on a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”

Part Four: A collection of quotes showing reporters in awe over Hillary’s “dazzling” political mastery.”

Part Five: Ten examples representing the softball treatment Hillary has received in TV interviews over the years.
