Patricia Smith spoke at the Republican Convention. She was lied to face to face by Hillary Clinton as to why her son died during the Benghazi attack. The media largely ignored her speech or mentioned it in passing during their coverage of the Convention.
Khizr Khan spoke at the Democrat Convention. His son, an Army Captain, was killed in Iraq in 2004. He has never met Donald Trump in his life. He used his speech to attack Trump on the issue of Muslim immigration. The media has been playing up his speech ever since he gave it.
The candidates and the issues may change, but the media will always have their ink stained thumbs on the scales for the Democrat in a Presidential election year.
