Your Buzz: Fanning the Kevin McCarthy rumors

This Week On #MediaBuzz

DONALD TRUMP told us the media "don't want to cover me accurately. I see such dishonesty," that some of the pundits are "brutal," and also weighed in on Politico, the New York Times and Washington Post, his Republican rivals, government spending and Iraq. MOLLY BALL said Trump "doesn't seem to like it when he's treated as a regular candidate" instead of a celebrity. FRED FRANCIS said the "Today" show town hall was "a big sloppy, wet kiss" for Hillary Clinton. And BETSY WOODRUFF said the media had little choice but to report unproven rumors about Kevin McCarthy having an affair because "ignoring it would have been unfair, it's part of the story."
