Carly Fiorina blasts 'liberal media' double standard over Hillary Clinton supporter threatening to strangle her (video)

Clinton Laughs at Supporter's Remark About 'Strangling' Carly Fiorina

Carly Fiorina took on the media on Wednesday, telling Bill O'Reilly there's a clear double standard in the liberal media in response to Hillary Clinton not confronting a supporter who said he wanted to strangle Fiorina.

"If this had happened with a conservative candidate, the liberal media would be all over us to correct him, to apologize," Fiorina said. "I do take umbrage with the clear double standard that exists in the media."

The controversy revolved around a male Clinton supporter who was laid off by Firoina at Hewlett-Packard. At a rally, he told Clinton he'd like to "strangle" Fiorina when she boasts about her time as CEO of the company.

"Every time I see her on TV, I want to reach through and strangle her," he said. Clinton laughed it off, responding she wouldn't mess with him.

"Newsflash: the media is biased," Fiorina continued. "This isn't anything new. And we just have to deal with it, unfortunately. So, it's not going to rattle me."
