Accuracy in Media

The speaker biography of Hillary Clinton distributed to audience members at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition convention this week included some details that were less than flattering to the presumptive Democratic nominee.

After listing some facts about her personal life and political career, the bio then delved into the less successful aspects of her life:

“As First Lady of the United States, Clinton led the failed effort to enact the Clinton health plan of 1993.”

“The only first lady to have been subpoenaed.”

“She faced a federal grand jury in 1996 regarding the Whitewater controversy. No charges were brought against her related to this or any other controversies in her life.”

“Her marriage endured the Lewinsky scandal of 1998, and overall her role as first lady drew a polarized response from the public.”

Oops!

Rainbow/PUSH spokesman Don Terry told the Chicago Tribune that  “a volunteer had a real brain freeze” when he or she lifted the biography from Wikipedia. “It was unintentional,” he said. “It was not intentional to hurt her…we are sincere, not snarky.”

The gaffe apparently didn’t faze the attendees who are solidly in the Clinton camp, but it should serve as a reminder that Clinton is a deeply flawed candidate who is unqualified to be president of the United States.
