For decades, the Clintons have counted on the support of the liberal media, and over those many years the media has indeed served the Clintons well. Even now, as the media is growing wary of the dangers of blindly following Hillary Clinton, they still default to paying her deference first instead of studying her with suspicion. Here’s hoping that they are beginning to learn the sad truth that the Clintons simply cannot be trusted.
Ron Fournier of the National Journal was on CBS’s Face the Nation this past Sunday where he predicted that Hillary Clinton would not get the sort of leeway her husband did some 20+ years ago.
Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post was on NBC’s Meet the Press where she too got involved in the prognosticating business. Parker sees a “stormy season ahead” for Mrs. Clinton and wonders what the Presidential contender can do now that her “trust value is in decline.”
And finally, over at MSNBC, author and educator Jeffrey Sachs of the Earth Institute at Columbia University shared his thoughts on the ongoing turbulence emanating from the Clinton Foundation scandal.
There is a lot of money sloshing around, and it, everything is blurred, and it is not good. The quid-pro-quos: who knows. But the amount of schmoozing and crossing lines and one person putting money in a foundation, then Clinton getting unbelievable payment for the speeches, and then contracts going one way or another. It is not good. Those blurry lines have been seen by many people over the years, this book describes them, there is something there.
People that worked in places like Haiti saw this massive machine of State Dept., Clinton Foundation, private businesses, money flowing in every direction, Clinton getting awards with massive price tags that he charged, money going to the Foundation, contracts going to the businesses that were giving the awards. Nobody liked it and people saw it for years.
