Accuracy in Media

Peter Schweizer, author of the book Clinton Cash, discusses topics including the Clinton Foundation scandal and the media’s coverage of his research. He was interviewed by AIM intern Alex Nitzberg.

From the interview:

“So, what the Clintons have done is basically create an apparatus that now allows foreign oligarchs to influence the highest levels of our government in a way that they never have before because they now have a vehicle to put money in the pockets of America’s political leaders.”

“And so, when Clinton Cash came out last year, The Washington Post, The New York Times, a lot of outlets covered it, and they covered it fairly, and I think those reporters are still great reporters. But I think that the pressure from above and the decisions made by the editors much more starts to conform this time of year around the idea that we don’t want to be the one who leads to, in this case, Hillary Clinton not winning the presidency. And so I think the coverage is effected as a result…”

    I’m not going to listen to this malarkey. I’m just going to go ahead and assume that this cretin wasn’t asked about all the nonsense in this “book” that’s been thoroughly debunked, to the point that most retailers won’t even carry it. LOL Losers.

    Ignorance is bliss “ironchefsandwiches”.. Do you make the sandwiches with imitation products?

    Schweizer has certainly become the focus of statist/collectivist criticism. Even Bill Clinton deigned to enter the fray, and declared concerning Schweizer: “Even the guy that wrote the book apparently had to admit under questioning that, ‘We didn’t have a shred of evidence for this, we just sort of thought we would throw it out there and see if it flies.’ And it won’t fly.” The 60 pages of footnotes at the end of Clinton Cash makes one wonder how the former president defines “evidence.” However, when a man has a hard time defining “is,” one must presume that much of the dictionary is open to redefinition, as well.

    You claim Clinton Cash has “been thoroughly debunked”, yet it includes 60 pages of footnotes. You concoct that “most retailers won’t even carry it”, yet it is a New York Times bestseller available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Costco, Walmart, etc. etc.

    Unless the FBI initiates a criminal investigation, the trail of Clinton cash to actual action for play to pay means nothing. Unfortunately Congress must force the FBI to take action as the corrupt DOJ will do nothing.
