AS it did for her husband in his first run for the presidency, the mainstream media is busy covering up for Hillary Clinton. We’re talking history here – although there is plenty in the past that should be in the news and isn’t. What we’re talking about is current stories that are being suppresses. Three examples:
– HRC is using national secrets thief Sandy Berger as a major advisor. Berger’s outrageous lifting of government documents never got the attention it deserved and he never got the punishment he deserved, but one might have imagined that he at least would not be on the fast track back to the White House again. Why Berger stole the documents remains a mystery although a reasonable assumption is that they were originals with embarrassing notations on them by HRC’s husband.
– A lawsuit concerning HR Clinton’s claims of non-involvement in a major fundraising scandal has been kept from view by most of the major media. While we don’t know the outcome of the case, we do know that there is an allegedly smoking gun video and the possibility of criminal charges should HRC lose the case. Whatever the outcome, this is news right now.
– HRC just withdrew her strange baby bond scheme less than a month after presenting it. Buried in an AP account is this: “Clinton first mentioned a so-called ‘baby bond’ last month in an appearance before the Congressional Black Caucus, saying it was just an idea and not a policy proposal. The idea was criticized by Republicans, and she told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Tuesday that it’s off the table.” As John Edwards’ spokesman Chris Kofinus said, “Apparently, new polling data seems to have pressured the Clinton campaign to throw out the baby bond with the bathwater.” We can’t recall another major issue being dropped by a candidate so quickly. Again, that’s news, but you’d only rarely know it from following the big media.
