The Boston Globe smells bad ...

WASHINGTON - As Hillary Clinton struggles to regain her momentum in the presidential race, frustrated feminists are looking at what they see as the ultimate glass ceiling: A female candidate with a hyper-substantive career is now threatened with losing the nomination to a man whose charismatic style and powerful rhetoric are trumping her decades of experience.

Decades of experience?

Here's the rest of the story.

Basically, this is not a story. It is a string of every worn cliche the reporter can dredge up or find a source to dredge up for her.

Note that it does not mention a single issue. For all of its pearl clutching about how "style wins over substance" the story does the exact same thing. It is an embroidered sampler of style without substance.

It's horrible braindead non-journalism dressed up as "insight." Typical Boston Globe poop.
