    When I asked her for an example, she replied, “Every morning, we hold a meeting about how to build that evening’s broadcast. We’ve been doing this for decades. Everybody talks about which stories we’re going to air, what the line-up looks like, and which reporters we’ll have live in the field and which ones will be filing taped pieces. In the past, the left-wing bias was always left unspoken. People just ‘got it,’ because they all thought the same. “Once Obama pulled ahead of Hillary and certainly once he became president,” she said, “the bias came out of the closet....

    Liberal media and politicos are hitting the fainting couches today over Sen. Rand Paul’s criticism of Bill and Hillary Clinton over the former president’s predatory sexual behavior while in office. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) called former President Clinton a sexual predator on Meet the Press. These same reporters and politicos covered-up Bill Clinton’s ongoing affair in 2008 as Hillary competed with Barack Obama for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. During the Clinton impeachment investigation and trial as reports and accusations of Clinton sexually assaulting and raping women piled up, it was said by his liberal defenders that America needs to...

    Tonya Harding's back and this time she's swinging at President Barack Obama. In an interview on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," the infamous Oregonian lashes out at Obama for talking about doing a "Tonya Harding" and "knee-capping" on the campaign trail in his fight against then U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton. "He has this country to think about .¤.¤. and he has to bring me up?" she says bitterly. "Guess what? I get jobs because he used my name on national television." So, strap on your knee pads and have a listen. But be aware there are some Tonyaesque expletives:...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Local prosecutors are investigating whether political fundraiser and contributor Norman Hsu, a fugitive from a California theft conviction for 15 years, stole millions of dollars from an investment fund. A spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said Wednesday that lawyers for the fund, Source Financing Investors, referred the matter to her office last week "and we are investigating whether funds were misappropriated." The spokeswoman, Barbara Thompson, said Hsu contributed $2,000 to Morgenthau's last re-election campaign. She said the district attorney has put the money into an escrow account pending the outcome of the investigation. Source...

    On September 7th we noticed that the scandal in the Democrat Party over illegal campaign donations was barely getting any coverage in the print media and the internet. Well, apparently, TV news isn't doing any better still. It's so obvious, even the juggernaut of the left, The New York Times, has taken note of how few network news reports have aired on the Hsu scandal... though not making a big deal of it, naturally. The news media is doing their level best to deep six the story to benefit Hillary, it seems. If the Hsu fits, anyway. (Do I have...

    A political fund-raiser from California, who was arrested last week but had remained hospitalized in Grand Junction while federal and state authorities worked on his extradition, was discharged from the hospital today and booked into Mesa County's jail, authorities said. Yung Yuen "Norman" Hsu, 56, was arrested last Thursday after becoming ill on an Amtrak train while traveling from San Francisco to Denver. He was booked into Mesa County's jail on an outstanding warrant from California because he does not have any local charges, sheriff's officials said. He is expected to be extradited to San Mateo County, Calif., and he's...

    New details emerged yesterday about the finances of the mysterious Democratic fund-raiser Norman Hsu, with the revelation that a private equity fund representing about 100 investors in New York gave him $40 million this year for a loan pool he said would generate a high rate of return. The investors were notified this week that their money might be in jeopardy, in light of disclosures that Mr. Hsu defrauded investors in a Ponzi scheme 16 years ago in California and faced accusations that he engaged in similar conduct more recently, a Manhattan lawyer for the fund said. The lawyer, Seth...

The latest Fox News poll (see chart) shows her slipping among likely Democratic primary voters from an unbeatable 43 percent in mid March to a more pedestrian 32 percent in late August.

    by Mark Finkelstein September 3, 2006 - 14:13 The general rule of thumb among political consultants is that a disapproval rating of 40% spells a candidate's near-certain defeat. Virtually no one who disapproves of a candidate will vote for him, while approving of someone is no guarantee of a vote. Hillary Clinton's disapproval rating of 44% in a recent Time magazine poll thus bodes very ill for her presidential prospects. Yet the Sunday Times of London has managed to put a rosy gloss on what would have most politicians looking for another line of work. Says the Times of the...

The former first couple visited the State Fair in Syracuse Friday, as part of Hillary Clinton’s three-day promotional tour through New York's farm country. "I'm in the support business," said Bill Clinton. "Whatever she does will make me happy. If she decided to serve six years in the Senate and then go help me with my work around the world, we could travel more together that would make me happy."...

    Six years ago, when Hillary Rodham Clinton first ran for the U.S. Senate, Republican Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds derided her as a carpetbagger who brought nothing to New York but overweening ambition.Today, he raves about their relationship. "I've found her always willing to listen and to roll up her sleeves and go to work with me," the Buffalo-area lawmaker said in a phone call between recent campaign stops.Reynolds is no partisan slouch. He has close ties to the Bush administration and heads the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. He has the most conservative voting record of anyone in New York's 29-member...

    ALBANY - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said yesterday she hopes America is ready for a female president - and gave her strongest hint yet at whom she has in mind when she blurted out, “Stay tuned.” Clinton, who was on a three-day upstate New York campaign swing, made the provocative comment to ABC's "Nightline," which reaches a national audience. Asked if America is ready for its first female chief executive, Clinton responded, "It just depends on when and if that happens. Stay tuned." Her coy remark immediately renewed speculation that the former first lady, heading to an easy re-election victory...

    NEW YORK — Just over half of Americans believe Sen. Hillary Clinton is prepared to be the first female president of the United States, according to a new FOX News poll. In addition, Clinton is the preferred choice of Democratic voters for their party’s 2008 presidential nominee; on the Republican side, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani barely edges out Ariz. Sen. John McCain for frontrunner billing. Opinion Dynamics Corporation conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from August 29 to August 30. The poll has a 3-point error margin. A slim 51-percent majority of voters...

Hillary Rodham Clinton, standing outside an abandoned knitting mill that will become the new home of the National Women's Hall of Fame, said Thursday she hopes America is ready for its first woman president. "It just depends on when and if that happens," the former first lady said. "Stay tuned." Clinton continued to duck questions about whether she will run for the White House in 2008, saying yet again she is completely focused on her re-election this year. But Clinton said that when it comes...
  • Clinton, Giuliani Top Poll As Presidential Nominees

    WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani are America's top choices to run for president, but a new poll says the Democratic senator faces a tougher fight than the GOP ex-mayor in getting nominated. Giuliani and Clinton each are the first choice of 32 percent of their parties' voters, the survey by RT Strategies and the Cook Political Report found. But 49 percent of Democrats think Clinton can't win a general election. "That's a huge number," said pollster Tom Riehle, who explained he asked that question because Clinton's biggest barrier to winning the Democratic nomination is the wide belief in...

    When chess buffs get bored, they sometimes fool around with a game called “suicide chess.” The rules are similar, but the goal is to lose all your pieces. If you need an illustration, just watch the Democrats. How else do you explain the fact that so many of them are seriously considering nominating Hillary Clinton for president in 2008? Earlier this month I revealed here that even 45 percent of Democrats, in “purple” New Hampshire, tell focus groups they hate her. Hate. Among their comments: “B-tch . . . political wh-re . . . evil . . . diabolical.” It...

    Washington Whispers It's Gingrich's to Lose in 2008 Sorry, Hillary. And Big John, you might have missed your chance in 2000. That's because a new and innovative poll from John Zogby about 2008 presidential candidates finds former Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich way out front of fellow GOP-ers like Sen. John McCain and also finds moderates like former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner far ahead of libs like Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Here's the unusual thing about the Zogby poll released to Whispers: When questioning likely primary voters, only brief biographies and not names were given. In other words, voters picked the...
