Skip to comments.Bill Clinton: Why yes, the media did favor Obama over Hillary three years ago

Via Fox News Insider, this clip shouldnt be as gratifying as it is. Surely no one needs Bill Clinton to tell them that the press was neck-deep in the tank for The Unicorn Prince in 2008. But it is gratifying, partly because of the hint of lingering resentment in Clintons reaction and partly because of the extra little shadow of illegitimacy it casts on Obamas victory.
Its no secret that BJ didnt think much of O during the campaign remember this infamous exchange he reportedly had with Ted Kennedy? but to see him acknowledge this when were on the cusp of another campaign where the media will be neck-deep in the tank for Obama is oddly comforting. Forget the bit at the end where he hedges on media bias against the GOP and never mind that, if asked, he would surely say he thinks Obama would have beat Hillary without the presss help (she did end up winning New Hampshire, after all).
Those are stock answers that any good soldier would offer for his party. The one about Hillary is not, which is what makes it so striking. No ones under any illusions about the medias corruption, including the elder statesmen in their favored party.
Ill bet he has a little scrapbook stashed somewhere filled with stories like this.

Either God simply does not punish hypocrisy, or the punishment for the Clinton's hypocrisy is so vast it's taking God a certain amount of time to maneuver the planets into an alignment to crack them together and thereby properly respond to these Creatures Of Maximum Perversity.
Barry could make white, male journalists feint at his rallies. Unfortunately, Hillary couldn’t do that.
There was no way the MSM would let a black leftist lose in the primary or the general election in 2008.
My hope is that the 2012 election will be as much of a referendum about the lying and destructive media as it is about Bark Obama.
As I remember William... he never forgives and never forgets.
Smart man. First class bastard, but a smart man.
I wouldn't want Willy Jeff PO'ed at me.
They were neck deep in it for whoever the nominee would have been on the D side.
There was a lot of press on the H. side too.
Hillary, yes. William, no, except for the first-class bastard part. Billy floats on a sea of bimbos, drink, drugs, food, parties, money and good time - as long as he's the proper front for Her Heinous.
Obama does the same thing, except not for his clown of a wife, but rather for The Machine itself. He was SUPPOSED to do it for Hillary, but found a higher bidder.
As if she's going to let it go at that - LOL!
The smartest woman on the planet beat by a banana head
If she's not going to let it go at that, I wish she & Bill would hurry up with the 'revenge' part.
Obama was the first legitimate black Dem candidate. By legitimate I mean not a proven scoundrel like Sharpton or Jackson. Of course, he’s since proved to be an inept nitwit and a scoundrel. At any rate, he was able to hide his past sufficiently enough to fool Dem voters. Not a difficult task. Hillary and Obama had almost identical programs, but Obama still got about 95% of the black vote. Dem bigshots knew that if Hillary knocked out Obama in the primaries, they’d lose the black vote and the prez election. But if Dems now say Black Dems vote for the best Dem candidate, have them try to explain away Obama getting 95% of the black vote against a candidate with almost identical positions on the issues.
The Media is in the tank for Romeny so Obama can get a second term. Fox News wants Romney even Monica Crowley because they think other’s have no chance to beat Obama. They are all idiots.
After playing the race card for years when needed The Clinton’s got hoisted on their own petard
Here’s to either one of the Clintons finally getting so fed up with the usurper that they go ballistic and let out the secrets.
The media gave the Democraps Obama and the Republicans McLame. They have the power of the poll on their side and too many Americans believe the crap they shovel (this includes Fox News).
Which is nothing compared to Bill favoring everyone over Hillary for the last 30 years.
It was so blatant I almost felt sorry for Hillary... She was getting the same treatment we do by the media. Even worse, she was SUPPOSED to be their “friend”. Those in the media are not only intellectually and morally biased, but they are fickle and unfaithful to even their own... Somehow makes it even worse, but nothing those who pay attention haven’t seen throughout Communist/Socialist history...
That was then—this is now. A percent of the MSM will still follow Obama in his Banzai Charge on the Republicans but—the old ardor isn’t there. He failed them. They know he can’t lead and hes a low inexperienced ward healer—with the wrong set of advisers. He doesn’t want solutions—only yes men. He would ruin the nation to get re-elected and keep power for his friends and his people (and they aint black).
