This week's Mainstream Media Scream features a new line of spin from MSNBC weekend host Joy Reid about why Hillary Rodham Clinton's email scandal isn't damaging to the Democratic presidential candidate.

The host of AM Joy appeared on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday where she described Hillary's email scandal as too complicated for the public to understand:

"I think the blessing and the curse for Hillary Clinton is that the e-mail story is complicated. So, the curse for her is that trying to explain it, her answers are so detailed and complicated, that when you're explaining you're losing...

"But, it's also so complicated that when you talk to voters they don't really get it. What they do understand is that they have gmail, so it doesn't sound like something criminal. So that when Donald Trump goes over the top and tries to say that it's something criminal, he kind of loses the audience too. It's a blessing and a curse."

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains the pick: "Maybe people would better understand Hillary's misdeeds if liberal political operatives turned TV hosts, such as Reid, put as much effort into explaining to their viewers the importance of what Hillary did to avoid accountability, as they do to explaining away its relevance."
