Accuracy in Media

Avoiding public scrutiny, no less:

A collection of records made public Wednesday indicates State Department officials attempted to give Hillary Clinton a government email account to use while she was secretary of state, contradicting previous claims from agency officials that no such account was ever set up.

But the email account,, went unused after a State Department official warned one of Clinton’s aides in Aug. 2011 that messages sent to and from the address would be “subject to [Freedom of Information Act] searches.”

The records, which were referenced but not published in an inspector general report released last month, were obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch.
