Hillary’s Emails and the Media’s Pound of Flesh

In her interview with ABC’s David Muir Monday night, Hillary Clinton apologized for her decision to use private email as Secretary of State, while noting her actions were legal at the time and done with the full knowledge of the State Department. Secretaries before her, like Colin Powell, used personal email and never complied to requests to turn any over. Yet mainstream media would not...

The Enduring Power of Hillary Clinton’s Beijing Speech

Twenty years ago today, then First Lady Hillary Clinton traveled to Beijing to address the UN delegation despite the “handwringing” of some in her husband’s administration. In defiance of the State Department and the Chinese Government, Mrs. Clinton spoke the words that still have deep resonance today: “Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights once and for all.” The New York...

Blogger Stu Collins graciously shared video documenting the event, where Agriculture Secretary and former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack offered a glowing introduction and endorsement of Clinton.

The Truth of Hillary’s Email Non-Scandal

Hillary Clinton is running an intelligent presidential campaign focused on voters’ pressing concerns. Her plans for reining in Wall Street, reducing cost of college education and child care, criminal justice and immigration reform, gun control, and equal pay for women deserve close examination. Yet we are distracted from the issues Clinton and other candidates raise by a corporate owned media that, just as in 2008,...

Sexism Still Being Used to Attack Hillary

Sexism Still Being Used to Attack Hillary

  HillaryMen Peter Daou and Tom Watson have my gratitude for exposing certain media operative’s loop of sexist tropes used to attack Hillary Clinton. The words “testy,” “combative,” “calculating,” “defiant,” “conniving” and “secretive” as applied to her have one purpose: character assassination designed to distract from her policy prescriptions and derail her presidential campaign. That is not too strong a statement. No man is described...

Republicans Fake Feminist Outrage to Bash Trump – Hilarity Ensues

After Republican frontrunner Donald Trump retaliated against tough debate questioning by FOX News’ Megyn Kelly, saying “she had blood coming out of her wherever,” the menstruation slur had Republicans in an uproar. Candidates like Carly Fiorina pretended offense, yet simultaneously swore that the equal rights Hillary Clinton champions for women are pandering and not needed. Fiorina also denied the need for paid maternity leave. Senator Marco Rubio, frustrated by...

New York Times Uses VP Biden to Distract from False Hillary Story

In a nifty sleight of hand, powerful New York Times‘ columnist, Maureen Dowd penned a column last weekend insisting that VP Joe Biden’s son pushed his father to make a third and final run for the Presidency, opposing Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Times’ political reporter Amy Chozick then quoted Dowd as a “news source” on this juicy scoop. What is lost here is...

Who Is Behind The New York Times’ Treatment of Hillary Clinton?

The New York Times has thus far refused to apologize for their false story about an IG criminal probe being requested against Hillary Clinton. When her team penned a 2,000 word damning dissection of NYT falsehoods, asking that Executive Editor Dean Baquet take responsibility, he refused to do so, also declining to publish their letter. That the “paper of record: looks to be waging a...

The New York Times Owes a Front Page Apology to Hillary Clinton

Yesterday, The New York Times’ public editor offered a harsh “note” on her paper’s botched, false story about two Inspectors General pursuing a criminal investigation against Hillary Clinton for “mishandling sensitive information in her emails.” Though Ms. Sullivan referred to the incident as a “mess” that “rippled through the entire news system”, her note was not unlike scientists making observations of Petri dish specimens to...

Why Is Hillary Taking on the NRA?

Why Is Hillary Taking on the NRA?

Hillary Clinton has taken a bold stance against the gun lobby. Per the Washington Post, she has publicly vowed to take on the NRA. For a top-tier Democratic Presidential candidate to voluntarily tackle this subject is surprising.  Most have avoided talking about guns for decades out of a fear of backlash from donors and the public, but perhaps Clinton is outfoxing the media by grabbing...
