Can Any Candidate Compete with Trump’s Pwning of a Desperate News Media?

There is speculation that billionaire Donald Trump is running a campaign for reasons other than attaining the Presidency; that he would never let his empire deteriorate while constrained by the demands of the Oval Office. Whatever his motives, Trump’s shocking frontrunner status means a desperate media will chase him for all the outrageous or grotesque sound bites he can spew. At the moment, the press...

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...

What’s The New York Times’ Gripe with Hillary Clinton?

Talking with Ed Berliner on Newsmax’s The Hard Line, I suggested one might want to learn the identity of The New York Times’ major shareholder. “There is definitely an agenda when it comes to Hillary,” I said.  I cannot tell you what is in the hearts and minds of the owners or editorial staff, but as my recent article, The New York Times’ Vendetta Against...

The New York Times’ Vendetta Against Hillary Clinton

Just out of college, I got a job at The New York Times. The electricity of the place was undeniable and I was proud to enter the building’s double doors and pass beneath the paper’s glorious masthead. I never imagined that 30 years later, I’d be singling out the “paper of record” for what appears to be a vendetta against Hillary Clinton. Beyond reporting the news,...

Hillary’s Emails: Scandal or Smear?

Republicans got a huge assist from mainstream media this week in their quest to smear Hillary Clinton, thereby arresting her path to the Presidency in 2016.  Press outlets, led by familiar Hillary-bashers MSNBC and The New York Times employed questionable reporting in an effort to manufacture scandal out of Hillary’s private email use during her time as Secretary of State.  Facts can be inconvenient things:...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Debate Hillary, Leadership and Media Manipulation 6/10/2014

On June 1oth, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched her book, “Hard Choices.”  Her blitz interview tour, starting with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, was cause for Jerry to grill me on her every talking point: the “dead broke” gaffe, her IWR vote from 2002 (yes, it is still an issue to some), and much more.  Jerry and I debate the value of experience vs. the...

Anita Finlay, Jerry Doyle and the Leadership Test 4/29/2014

As Bill Clinton recently pointed out, the media tends to glom on to a narrative and never let go, which often means promoting The Dangerous Allure of the Shiny New Toy in politics to the detriment of those more capable.  As I wrote in my linked article above, Often, voter disappointment with current leadership and big media’s boredom with the experienced pols waiting in the wings...
