Not so much fake Hillary news out there. Hillary Clinton appears to be getting fair coverage from the press, more so than her former foe who now occupies the White House.

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found that a third of U.S. voters — 34 percent — say the nation’s major new organizations “fabricate” stories on Mrs. Clinton; 27 percent of Republicans, 31 percent of independents and 43 percent of Democrats agree. The rest were undecided.

Forty-one percent said the press did not fabricate stories about Mrs. Clinton; 54 percent of Republicans and 34 percent of both independents and Democrats agree.

Interesting finding, in light of another recent survey from the same pollster.

Last week, a separate Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 46 percent of voters said the press makes up stories about President Trump — an idea that three-fourths of Republicans, 44 percent of independents and 20 percent of Democrats agreed upon.

Another 37 percent said the news media did not fabricate the stories; 11 percent of Republicans, 31 percent of independents and 65 percent of Democrats agree. The rest were undecided.
