Skip to comments.New York Times, Washington Post, Fox News strike deals for anti-Clinton research
Posted on 04/20/2015 11:06:39 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
The New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have made exclusive agreements with a conservative author for early access to his opposition research on Hillary Clinton, a move that has confounded members of the Clinton campaign and some reporters.
"Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich" will debut on May 5. But the Times, the Post and Fox have already made arrangements with author Peter Schweizer to pursue some of the material included in his book, which seeks to draw connections between Clinton Foundation donations and speaking fees and Hillary Clinton's actions as secretary of state. Schweizer is the president of the Government Accountability Institute, a conservative research group, and previously served as an adviser to Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
Fox News' use of Schweizer's book has surprised no one. The bulk of the network's programming is conservative, and the book's publisher, HarperCollins, is owned by News Corporation. But the Times and Post's decision to partner with a partisan researcher has raised a few eyebrows. Some Times reporters view the agreement as unusual, sources there said. Still others defended the agreement, noting that it was no different from using a campaign's opposition research to inform one's reporting -- so long as that research is fact-checked and vetted.
HarperCollins is marketing "Clinton Cash" as a "meticulously researched" book that "raises serious questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to an array of foreign interests, and ultimately, of fitness for high public office." In it, Schweizer seeks to show how donations to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees paid to former president Bill Clinton may have influenced Hillary Clinton's decisions at the State Department. . .

Hating her for different reasons.
The conservative rag straightforwardly.
The liberal rag, because she might be the unacceptable clown princess, and wants to head her off early.
Politics makes the strangest bedfellows.
Hillary is the globalists' choice.
Pass the popcorn.
As always...kill the messenger.
Wow. A rather egregious example of strange bedfellows, indeed, the Times’ position is difficult to fathom.
Of course. However, I've coined a new term for her which is children friendly: Hillabetch.
Also changed my "Obambi" term for that POS in our Oval Office to "OBUNGLER". Look up the definition of bungler or bungle. You'll be surprised how well it fits Barack Hussein.
Several possibilities could be possible.
Maybe the Times wants to get the storm about such things over and to guide the narrative to other things, given that her potential base has about a microsecond of attention span.
A bungler at least attempts to do what is right. Jimmy Carter was a bungler. Barack Obama has made doing the wrong thing an art form. Saboteur, not bungler.
Should be apparent pretty quickly.
I'm guessing, from everything hitting the fan, that they decided the old "Pig" don't stand a chance and they want time for another "Pig" to step up.
Point taken. However, not all "bunglers" do it because of what they believe is right while failing. Having worked many blue-collar jobs I watched bunglers who hated their boss and/or job and intentially "bungled" their position to get un-employment insurance. How about the synonyms below for bungle?
botch, err, flub, fudge, gum up, miscalculate, mishandle, mismanage, screw up, boggle, butcher, fumble, mar, ruin, spoil, ball up, drop the ball, foul up, goof up, louse up, make a mess of
Give me a new term for Obambi as I have always called him since he is such a wuss. Maybe just Hus-seintan? Or maybe Obamastan or Obamislime? or BreakyourBarack? or No Spine barAck? I'm open to any term that shows him for the Marxist muslim-supporting anti-American POS he is.
The more he goes on, the more he looks like a very competent tool and puppet, for compromising the USA in whatever way he can.
Just like they did with all that opposition research on Palin, eh?
Either they want to take her down early to clear the path for Liawatha, or they want to have Hilary's defense ready to go.
The NY Times did it so they could actively squash anything negative about Herr Hitlery found.
Same for the Post.
Fox? The senior editors will have the last say. Maybe they’ll allow it, maybe they won’t.
Due-Diligence and vetting Hillary, is anti-Clinton. Got it...
QUESTION Where did mommy and daddy Clinton hide their ill-gotten gains? Aha....looks like little Chelsea is keeping a secret.....the Clinton stash is hidden under Chelsea's name, and the SEC's got the info:

HEY GUYS, THIS NEEDS RESEARCH After Obo named Tim Geithner to head Treasury, Obo placed Rham Emanuel in a dual role---(1) Obama's COS, and, (2) in total control of the US Treasury. Politician/crook Rham once toiled on Wall Street and knows financial thievery like he knows his own name.
HEY GUYS, THIS NEEDS RESEARCH After Obo named Tin Geithner to head Treasury, Obo his then-COS Rham Emanuel in total control of the US Treasury. Politician/crook Rham once toiled on Wall Street and knows financial thievery like he knows his own name.
THE KINGPINS OF CHICAGO CRIMINAL POLITICS IN OUR WH wasted no time.....they had a stranglehold on the Census, AND the US Treasury, from day one.
The minute Obama/Valerie/Rahm/Axelrod/Geithner, and that Practiced bunch of Chicago criminals, landed in the WH they did two things that were apparently crucial to their evil plans
(a) they took control of the US Census;
(b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (cabinet-level agency oversees IRS).
THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.
When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials.
