USA Today Still Milking Anti-Trump Speech of Khizr Khan, Skipped Over Patricia Smith Speech

Posted on 09 August 2016

USA Today is still milking the Khizr Khan controversy for Hillary Clinton’s campaign on the front page on August 9, eleven days after the convention speech. The headline was “Khans: Trump’s comments make Muslims feel like lesser Americans.” The story promoted a “Capital Download” interview for “video newsmakers” hosted by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page.

Did this national newspaper put GOP convention speaker and grieving relative Patricia Smith on the front page to criticize Hillary Clinton? No. The newspaper didn’t even mention her name after her turn at the convention.
