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,...

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...

Past is Prologue: Media Again Derides Hillary as an Entitled “Corporate” Candidate

In an interview on CNN’s Crossfire, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who last week intimated he’d make a better president than Hillary Clinton, avoided attacking her despite host S.E.

In his latest column, Washington Post’s Dana Milbank lamented that the youth vote, 15 million strong, who swept Obama into office have “abandoned him in his hour of need.”  With ‘his presidency on the line,’ Millennials seem to be turning their collective backs on the President’s health care plan: “The administration announced last week that only 1.08 million people ages 18 to 34 had signed...
