ELDER PATRIOT – The extent of the stench surrounding Hillary Clinton continues to prove immeasurable as virtually everyday a revelation about the depths of her unscrupulousness is exposed. There has been no component of our political system that hasn’t been corrupted by Mrs. Clinton and the henchmen working for her.
It’s common knowledge that media access to Mrs. Clinton is restricted to those reporters who have turned a blind eye towards her corruption but now it has been revealed by Gawker that Clinton’s media machine has actually blackmailed reporters to provide positive reports on the presidential wannabe.
Emails received under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal that Marc Ambinder, who writes for The Atlantic magazine was offered a copy of a speech Hillary Clinton was scheduled to deliver at the Council on Foreign Relations by Clinton spokesperson Philippe Reines.
The offer came with three conditions that the paragon of reportorial virtue readily accepted:
- “You in your own voice describe them [Clinton’s remarks] as ‘muscular’
2) You note that a look at the CFR seating plan shows that all the envoys — from Holbrooke to Mitchell to Ross — will be arrayed in front of her, which in your own clever way you can say [is] certainly not a coincidence and meant to convey something
3) You don’t say you were blackmailed!”
The real tragedy isn’t that Mrs. Clinton and those working for her are corrupt, anyone willing to take their head out of their ass already knows that, the real loss is the continued diminishment of our ability to rely with confidence in the press so that we can decide for ourselves who best represents the interests of each of us.
As the author of our Declaration of Independence warned us, “The press is impotent when it abandons itself to falsehood.”–Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Seymour, 1807.
