Accuracy in Media

The media are returning to their protective mode regarding Hillary Clinton, after pretending to raise questions about her health. But very few questions have been answered. Here are some that still linger:

  1. Clinton and her media entourage have claimed in the past that her coughing fits were caused by allergies. So what really caused her to leave the 9/11 memorial and nearly collapse?
  2. The video of her wobbling and almost falling down led to the claim that Mrs. Clinton was just overheated. However, the temperature was around 80 degrees with low humidity. Later, it was alleged that she had pneumonia. What is the truth?
  3. If she really had pneumonia, why not disclose that information on Friday, when she was supposedly diagnosed with pneumonia? The claim that she had pneumonia caused by a tough campaign schedule might have engendered sympathy for the Democratic candidate and would not have aroused as much controversy as her collapse after she left the 9/11 memorial.
  4. Why should the public believe that the explanation for her collapse was pneumonia when the campaign had previously blamed allergies for her health problems?
  5. Clinton at first appeared to be fine at the 9/11 memorial service as she talked to various people. Why did her health take such a dramatic turn for the worse?
  6. If she has pneumonia, why did she come out of Chelsea’s apartment looking so chipper? What happened to her in the apartment?
  7. If pneumonia is supposedly the cause of the recent coughing fit, what caused the previous coughing fits?
  8. Who was the mysterious woman shown with Hillary as she left the 9/11 memorial? This is the woman who appears to be taking Hillary’s pulse and asking her to squeeze her fingers, which appears to be a neurological test.
  9. Clinton had a concussion and blood clots in the past, including one in her brain. Where is the proof that she didn’t have a stroke on 9/11?
  10. Why didn’t she go to the hospital, where she could have been evaluated by objective doctors and nurses?
  11. If she does have pneumonia, which can be contagious, why was she exposing herself to Chelsea’s children and the public?
  12. Why was an email sent to Mrs. Clinton from a top aide about a drug used to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease?
  13. Why was this email disclosed by WikiLeaks rather than Clinton?
  14. Why did Hillary seem to be the only person at the event wearing sunglasses with blue lenses? The report, “Parkinson’s Disease: Effects of Colored Glasses on Movement Times,” cites anecdotal evidence that wearing blue tinted glasses helps relieve the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

One day before her collapse, The Washington Post had accused Donald J. Trump of being a sexist for questioning her health. After the health debacle, the Post tried to give the impression that it was finally investigating with a story headlined, “Hillary Clinton has not been quick to share health information.” The story failed to note that one of the biggest concerns involves the fact that the FBI documents released in her email investigation said she couldn’t remember receiving a briefing on handling classified information. The story also didn’t mention the email she received about Provigil, a drug to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s.

This is not the first time that the media have covered up for a Democratic presidential nominee. The press helped John F. Kennedy and his physician cover up the fact that he was dependent on cortisone for Addison’s disease, a very serious disorder, and may have been using amphetamines.

Before he ran for president on the Democratic ticket in 1988, Michael Dukakis was a candidate for governor of Massachusetts in 1982. His campaign had concocted a false cover story about his wife’s drug problem. The press was told that Kitty Dukakis was recovering from hepatitis at a friend’s home in Minnesota when she was actually a patient at a drug-treatment clinic.

Despite the ongoing cover-up of Mrs. Clinton’s medical and health problems, some Democratic Party leaders must suspect or know she has a serious disorder and may not be able to fulfill her duties as President.

Yet the media are either trying to move on, or change the subject to Trump’s tax returns.

In order to try to make us forget what the world saw in that terrifying video of her near-collapse, the giant corporate search engines like Google are stacking the deck against results that can push the public and the media to seek more definitive answers.

As Seton Motley noted, Google searches for “Hillary Clinton’s he-” did not produce results about her health problems but rather about “Hillary Clinton’s headquarters,” “Hillary Clinton’s health plan” and “Hillary Clinton’s healthcare plan.”

In addition to playing down the nature of Hillary’s health problems, ignoring the follow-up questions or changing the subject, this is how Mrs. Clinton’s supporters in the media and elsewhere hope to sabotage the public’s right to know how sick she really is.

    It’s clear from her right foot dragging as they carried her from the curb that she was experiencing some neurological issues.
    Demand truth in reporting. This means actually engaging in substance rather than a picture of what you ordered for lunch.
    If we want things to change in this country it’s our responsibility to do so, Stop flapping and learn the truth of what actually is going on. What made this country great is it was founded on God and very few sat on there fat asses ,they where engaged…

  • IronChefSandwiches

    There really is no low that Kincaid won’t sink to, and with him the mouth breathing morons that populate sites like this one. Pathetic.

    Honest question. Has there EVER been a ridiculous anti-Clinton or anti-Obama conspiracy theory that you idiots didn’t believe? Even one?

  • IronChefSandwiches

    So much easily disproved derp in so few words…

  • JES

    It is obvious from every, single comment you’ve made on this website, that you hate to know the TRUTH about the D.C. government and political campaigns. Like you’re some sort of expert, or something. HAH! Hillary’s campaign is DEEP into lying over hear health issues and that’s a fact that can be seen on EVERY bobbing head, dragging feet and stumbling video out there. Wake up and open your heart and mind for a switch!

  • IronChefSandwiches

    LOL You’re such a fool. Look up the words “evidence”, “proof” and “reality” in the dictionary. You might surprised what you find if you take your head out of your ass. PS Get used to saying President Clinton again. You’re a member of a tiny minority of right wing nitwits. The rest of us laugh at you.

  • Poptoy1949

    All of these people lie so much we will never know the complete truth.

    Putin was seen leaving her room late at night carrying a small vial of black liquid. We know what happened?

  • Greg Day

    You need to check the polls today, even the far-left LA Times reports Trump is ahead by nearly 5 points!
    And guess what?
    His health allows him to fly all over for Campaign events. May I ask just why, aside from this continual cover-up crap regarding her health, she doesn’t?
    AND, why is Trump not really concerned about “fund raising” events, while she ‘tries’ to schedule and attend them regularly?
    ALSO, WHY is NO ONE saying a PEEP about her being FIRED by the “Watergate Special Prosecutor” investigating Nixon’s involvement for the break in of DNC HQ in 1972- FOR LYING!!!
    IMHO as a Licensed Nurse of MANY years, there are neurological symptoms indicating MS/Parkinson’s disease with accompanying Elliptic episodes.

    Well, Reagan’s own son said the old man was experiencing the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease by the third year of his first term … and there can’t be ANY illness or disease worse for the CEO of the United States of American … can there?

  • jg collins

    Someone who, through laziness, ignorance or stupidity, is unable to reply to allegations and facts with a logical argument must fall back on invective. The more insults, the less rational the speaker.

  • jg collins

    I don’t get it, Ted-san. Is that intended as a tu quoque argument supporting the conclusion that it’s okay to enter the FIRST year of a term of office already suffering from a serious neurological illness? One that prevents the candidate from remembering briefings on such important items as security procedures? ‘Splain to me, Ted, please.

  • J Glenn

    It was mid 70s in NYC when she did her drop and roll. If she can’t stand the heat, then she should get out of the kitchen. Democrats are very fond of quoting that moron Truman for allegedly having said that. (Or did he say, If you can’t stand the heat, get out of Hiroshima and Nagasaki?)

  • Jimmy Leggs

    It’s obvious that the Obamacare death panels need to review her case and deliver a “coup de grace.”

  • jg collins

    That’s because you actually have a point, Greg. If you had nothing, you could just spew insults right and left. (though the majority come from the left)

    The “low” here is the paid troll, ICS!

    That’s his job here. To be an obnoxious agitater. He’s is best ignored.

  • Gz7

    Yes, just one. That you would permanently go away. But low and behold here you are. You need some serious counseling.

  • Steven Barrett

    Articles like this one above are deplorable, too. Maybe the intent was to create more deplorably ill-informed voters so as to usher in what would truly be the most despicably deplorable display of “government” in our nation’s history.

    I always find it really sad when a dumb, misinformed person tries to be clever. I’m sure you have your good points.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Did you just “I am rubber. You are glue.” me?

  • IronChefSandwiches

    I have to give you credit, dude. You managed to tie TWO completely asinine right wing conspiracies into one sentence. You’re a misinformed schmuck…but that was well played.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    “It was mid 70s in NYC when she did her drop and roll.”

    WTF are you even talking about? She has pneumonia. She took a couple days off to rest. Just like…normal people. God, you people are so dumb.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    You should be ashamed of yourself. Do you even realize that? You are so deluded with right wing nonsense that you feel that, as a Licensed Nurse of MANY years, you are somehow qualified to diagnose someone you’ve never met. That’s shameful. But, as a right wing nutjob, you have no shame. You make that clear everything you type on a web site.

    As far as the other nonsense that you through into that “comment” all willy-nilly? WTF are you smoking? Here’s a tip. When trying to make a point, avoid throwing around dumbass accusations that were disproved decades ago. It might make people believe you know what the hell you’re talking about. For a while, anyway.

    And finally, I curse a lot. So what? I was an officer in the US Navy and I cuss like the sailor I used to be. If you don’t like it, block me. I keep it relatively tame.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    So much derp…so few words. I honestly feel sorry for you. I can’t imagine going through my life as misinformed as you people. It makes me sad. Enjoy your delusions and start practicing saying President Clinton again. Have a nice evening.

  • Dirk

    You truly have no substance, antagonism is not substance.
    Do you really grasp how this system works?
    500 words ,lets see how smart you really are.

  • Poptoy1949

    Thanks for the info.

  • Poptoy1949

    Just for you

  • Poptoy1949

    Here are a few words for ya…..

  • JRobb

    America has declined since the Bible and Creation was taken out of our Schools by 5 Black Robed Liberals in 1962. In 1776, our Founding Fathers wrote and endorsed these solemn pledges, “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly Publish and Declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be, Free and Independent States;… And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our Sacred Honor.” “…they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness…”

    America was built upon Jesus Christ our Creator and his Bible. Our Fathers knew that men can only be free if they live by our Creator’s Laws. America’s Children are being denied the knowledge of our Creator and the goodness and freedom of his Laws. I have a Plan to bring the Bible and Creation back to our Schools. Take a look at CreatorisLiberty.com and consider the plan to organize Volunteer Groups in every County in America, learn the truth of Creation and attend every School Board Meeting until the Bible and Creation are back in our Schools. Also, see Store page for some chapters and high lights of a Book I’ve written, “America Come Back”

  • IronChefSandwiches

    It’s very obvious from our beliefs that I’m several orders of magnitude smarter than you. I’m fine with that. You, on the other hand, get all butthurt when corrected. Too bad. So sad.

  • Hard Little Machine

    None of this entirely relevant because if you push them, most Democrats secretly harbor the belief that Hillary is nothing more than a legal fiction created as an end run around the Constitutional limits on a third term for Bill. Everyone knows she drunk and insane and on death’s door. But it doesn’t matter because she’s a figurehead.

  • Dirk

    So predictable,couldn’t do it 500 word’s

  • Dirk

    How is truth deplorable?

  • Dirk

    Love the tu quoque questions…seems to be a great deal of that in this election cycle.

  • Steven Barrett

    It depends upon your view of what truth is. Was it today’s rather despicable — never mind the milder adjective “deplorable” — display by Trump, who surrounded himself with legitimate war heroes (who haven’t seen the real nature of that small vain “man”) — to say the president was born in the United States, only to add in the unnecessary and false cheap shot that Hillary Clinton started the whole thing, when in fact he’d been given plenty of warnings not to go in that direction from last night, no less?
    What else could we expect from you Dirk, who believes the nation was built upon Godly principles. Really? Was the Declaration of Independence truly a “Godly” document when we have to accept the fact that the man who wrote most of it lied when he said “all men are created equal” … Jefferson who owned slaves and fathered at least one child by one, Sally Hemmings.?
    Was the Constitution a “godly document”? Hardly. It was mostly an economic document drawn up by the predominately wealthy class constituting the “men of property” of that time. Sure, they had lots of reasons to be very interested in protecting their property no thanks to the greed of the merchants, lawyers, politicians and other elite of their time who were squeezing the economic life blood out of many poorer farmers, many of whom were veterans. (Not much changes when it comes to the wealthy always finding ways to leave the guys and gals who do most of the dirty work so the wealthy can live comfortably at peace miles away from the turmoil and violence of war.)
    Do yourself a favor and stop reading all the “God did this and God did that and provided such and such” for our ever so anointed founding fathers of yore. They were just as human and just as flawed and fallible as you and I and the present day leadership we have today.
    Read Charles Beard’s classic about the real reasons the Constitution came about, the one single document which has kept this nation together. I’ll give you a hint: they had to deal with economics. And yes, I’ll grant you God has lots to say about how we should behave better when it comes to how we conduct our financial affairs.
    I’m a Christian, too, Dirk. But are you now going to judge me, me, primarily because I ascribe to a different take of the Gospel than you? BTW, I follow the teachings of the same Jesus as they have been found in the oldest Bible going back to the earliest centuries: not the secular production known as the King James Version.

  • Steven Barrett

    Got proof?

  • IronChefSandwiches

    What is this obsession with 500 words. Smart people can get their point across in far fewer. Try organizing your thoughts. It does wonders.

  • justmewhoelse12

    It was so hot only Hillary overheated, had to leave and collapsed out of the 10’s-100’s of thousands of people there.

  • Gz7

    Have you looked on your own, or do you want to take my word for it.

  • Dirk

    I don’t judge you at all. The fight is not in the flesh anyway.
    I agree our founding father were wealthy and were driven by fostering there wealth.
    I don’t know if our founding fathers were anointed.I agree also one benefits from reading the original texts because translating always changes meaning.
    If you study history you can see the correlation between social liberalism and the decline of this nation.
    You stated you are a christian-Amen- so you know God holds us accountable for what our nation does. we are one failure in this financial house of cards away from some really ugly consequence of greed.
    I will say this. the public is feed crap daily, there are the few who control the natural resources of the world.these are the people that control the flow of money.Elections are an illusion that “we” have a say. we don’t.If we really did have influence then we would have a functional Congress.
    Here is a social control tidbit,ever wonder why we fought in Afghanistan and Pakistan? OPIUM
    you do the research on the epidemic of Heroin addiction/deaths in this country.
    My point, it takes sophisticated management to stay in power and once you have it your not going to readily give it away. Pray and intercede my friend.

  • Dirk

    You still haven”t answered the Q and are stuck on insults and antagonism.
    I encourage you to answer in less than 500. I’m not stuck, I’m challenging you.
    Oh here this may make you feel more comfortable: Follow along or you will have to sit at the children’s table. This type of vernacular really has no place in a fruitful discussion .

  • jug

    He/she/it, or whatever “it” is, is just like the arrogant muslims!

    Thinks that they are supieror, just because they are really so ignorant that they dont know any better.

    I thought she looked very regal and presidential as they flung her half dead carcass into her van like a 300 pound sack of potting soil.

  • Austinniceguy

    A few facts about the media and the libtard dem…

    ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

    CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

    ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney

    ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary

    ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

    CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.
    And now you know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.
    Ya think there might be a little bias in the news ???
    It also explains the cover up of Benghazi………

    Dumb is better than gullible.

  • IronChefSandwiches

  • Bruce

    The 9/11 Hillary collapse episode, and the subsequent media cover-up attempt just totally reminded me of the famous scene from ‘Wizard of Oz,’ where little toto the dog pulls down the curtain, from behind which Oz was portraying himself as an omnipotent god figure, when in reality, he was kind of weak. That is what that viral video, caught on someones’ cell phone did to Mainstream Media.

  • Jack Parsons

    It’s obvious to anyone with eyes and ears that Crooked Hillary is on her last legs. She is a 70 year old hyperthyroid, who has blood clots, brain damage, liver damage, congestion, dementia and Parkinson’s. Why is she even running? She’s dying.
