  • Only 6% Trust Media, But It Should Be Less

    04/19/2016 7:02:49 PM PDT · by Beave Meister · 8 replies
    First Amendment: More information travels faster to more consumers than ever before. So why does a new survey show trust in media at rock bottom? Because so much more accurate information is available elsewhere. When Matt Drudge in early 1998 broke the story of President Bill Clinton’s indiscretions in the Oval Office study with Monica Lewinsky, it was the dawn of a new era in news reporting. Woodward and Bernstein seemed like the hip, new faces of journalism when they came along in the early 1970s and helped bring down a president. But although no one ever made a movie...

    Monica Lewinsky has described the public humiliation she suffered after her affair with President Bill Clinton was exposed as 'excruciating', and said it brought her 'very close' to attempting suicide. The 42-year-old former White House intern became a household name after her friend Linda Tripp secretly recorded conversations with Lewinsky discussing the affair and passed them on. . . . One day she told him 'I have a crush on you' and he responded 'Well, do you want to come into the back office?'. . . . She recalls attending a press conference held a week before the launch of...
  • Morning Joe: Bill Clinton's 'Hatchet' Job on Bernie 'Painful,' Cringe-worthy

    Bill Clinton has lost his fastball. That's an emerging theme from this campaign season, and it was on glaring display on today's Morning Joe. Introducing a clip of Clinton [dressed like a lumberjack] attacking Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, Mika Brzezinski said the ex-prez had picked up the "hatchet"--not a good image for a would-be statesman. After the clip aired, Joe Scarborough called it "painful." Mike Barnicle said it was a "cringe" moment, with Chuck Todd seconding the assessment. View the video here.

    Recent controversial statements from feminist icon Gloria Steinem and former Secretary of State Madeline Albright sparked MSNBC's Joe Scarborough to unleash a rant against feminists who did not stand up for people like Monica Lewinsky. The "Morning Joe" panel was discussing a recent statement Steinem made on Bill Maher's HBO show (and her subsequent apology posted on Facebook) about young women who follow Bernie Sanders and Albright's warning of a "special place in hell" for women who do not help other women. Scarborough began his rant with the question, "Where were these women in 1998 when a young 22-yr-old intern...

    The U.S. came very close to having private retirement accounts as part of a sweeping Social Security reform. And, no, it wasn't under President George W. Bush, who put forward a workable plan that went nowhere. It was under President Clinton. That surprising bit of news comes 18 years after the fact in a reminiscence by Cato Institute senior fellow Jose Pinera, who once upon a time served as Chile's secretary of labor and social security, and who designed that country's highly successful pension reforms in 1980. Pinera says that Clinton began thinking in earnest about privatizing part of Social...

    So he's wielding his knife on her most sensitive pressure point: her hypocrisy in running as a feminist icon when she was part of political operations that smeared women who told the truth about Bill's transgressions. Hillary told friends that Monica was a "troubled young person" getting ministered to by Bill and a "narcissistic loony toon." Hillary's henchman Sidney Blumenthal spread around the story that Monica was a stalker and Charlie Rangel publicly slandered the intern as a fantasist who wasn't playing with "a full deck." Trump may be a politically incorrect Frank Sinatra ring-a-ding type with cascading marriages to...

    Not merely does Chris Matthews claim that Hillary Clinton was "shocked" to learn that Bill was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. Matthews can't imagine anybody thinking she wasn't shocked. On today's With All Due Respect, Matthews said "I don't think anybody thought that she wasn't shocked when this Monica thing came about. You just look at her face in the old clips. You can see she couldn't believe it had happened." Of course. After all, Monica is on record in the Starr Report saying that Bill confided to her that he had "hundreds" of affairs before the age of...

"Why do you call him one of the great women abusers of all time when you've said that the impeachment process against him didn't make sense, Monica Lewinsky didn't make sense?"

He was 90. His death was confirmed by his granddaughter Linn Bumpers.

    There are more than 40 million voters who were not on the rolls the last time Bill Clinton ran for office. As hard as it may be to believe, Bill has not had his name on a ballot for 20 years and hasn't been a direct factor in a general election race since the American people rejected his vice-president in 2000. But he's back, and he will play a large role in this election because his wife is his party's likely nominee. That and the fact he's hitting the campaign trail on her behalf mean his past, ever last nasty...

    Donald Trump defended and expanded upon his attacks on the Clintons on Tuesday, asserting once more that mentioning former President Bill Clinton's past infidelities was "fair game" if Hillary Clinton kept hitting him for his own views on women, bringing up Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones as examples. During a telephone interview with NBC's "Today," Savannah Guthrie asked the Republican presidential candidate about an early-morning tweet in which he recalled the former president being called a racist for comments he made while campaigning for his wife against then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008. -snip- "I can get you a list, and...

    he US supreme court yesterday issued an order disbarring former president Bill Clinton from practising law before the high court. The ruling is seen as marking the official end of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The ruling struck a jarring note in the current mood of national unity. Mr Clinton has been praised for the supportive role he has been playing and the way he has thrown his political weight behind President George Bush. The court did not explain its reasons for the disbarment, although such a decision usually follows disbarment in a lower court. In April, Mr Clinton's Arkansas law...

"If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!" he tweeted, citing Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and her spouse. Trump's comments mark the latest escalation of his war of words with the Clinton family over gender and sexism. He previously accused Bill Clinton of having sexist tendencies last weekend after reports emerged that the former president plans on campaigning with his wife next year. "Hillary...

    What's more sexist: Donald Trump saying "schlonged" to describe the way Hillary Clinton lost in 2008, or Hillary herself orchestrating a campaign to discredit and destroy women, including Monica Lewinsky, whose "bimbo eruptions" threatened Bill and Hillary's hold on power? According to Al Sharpton on today's Morning Joe, Trump's offense is the graver. Sharpton suggests that Hillary's attack on Monica Lewinsky should be understood as a woman "dealing with someone who was in an indiscretion with her husband." Sharpton thus paints a picture of poor Hillary, the wronged woman, fighting her rival for the affections of her husband. As Trump...

    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump escalated his attacks on Hillary Clinton Sunday — by bashing her for her husband’s infidelity. “I think he is fair game,” Trump told Fox and Friends of Bill Clinton, “because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled to put it mildly because of all of the things she’s talking to me about. She’s mentioning sexism.” Over the Christmas season, Trump went on a Twitter bender warning Clinton to “be careful” when she accuses him of sexism. He implied Sunday that warning meant he’s ready to unload on Bill for his sexual exploits. “He’ll come...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Bob Morrison. Hillary Clinton seems to be standing on quicksand. Her every attempt to extricate herself from the burgeoning email scandal only seems to sink her prospects deeper and faster. Now, even Joe Biden is beginning to look hungrily at an entry into the race. The latest round of revelations—significantly headlined by the New York Times—shows that Madam Secretary’s private email server housed Top Secret emails. This is directly contrary to what she has been assuring the world all along. She will find it harder to dismiss the Times as the house organ...

    American Thinker ^ | August 1, 2015 | Daniel John Sobieski
    The liberal media feeding frenzy about a quarter-century-old alleged marital rape involving GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, and former wife Ivana, has a fury that was strangely absent when Bill Clinton was credibly accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978 when William Jefferson Clinton was attorney general of Arkansas. Ivana says her alleged “rape” never happened, Juanita Broaddrick says hers did. So why aren’t Hillary and Bill being peppered with questions about it as Donald and Ivana are? Perhaps because unlike liberal nemesis Trump’s case, Clinton’s more credidble story is now considered “old...

    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, Sidney Blumenthal was no more than an old friend trying to help out by dropping her an occasional unsolicited e-mail with advice. And the only reason she listened, she said, was to keep from being “caught in the bubble” of hearing only from “a certain small group of people.” Now we know better. Turns out Blumenthal was no casual correspondent: He was repeatedly plying her with dubious “intelligence” on Libya — much of which turned out to be false, but which she nonetheless passed on to State Department underlings. In fact, we learned this...

    During the height of President Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal, a White House maid entered the bedroom to clean and was shocked to find the president and first lady’s bed covered in blood. The blood belonged to the president, who said publicly that he “hurt himself running into the bathroom door in the middle of the night.” But the White House resident staff believed differently. As one worker told author Kate Anderson Brower, “We’re pretty sure [Hillary Clinton] clocked him with a book.” “There were at least 20 books on the bedside table for his betrayed wife to choose from,” Brower...

    I like Camille Paglia. She’s ornery and interesting, not subservient to the orthodoxies so stultifying to other public intellectual academic types of her acclaim. Reason TV’s Nick Gillespie did an hour-long interview with the woman herself, and the whole thing is worth a watch (Or listen, as I did, while cleaning my house. How’s that for maximizing the intellectual potential of my gender conformity?). But here, for your viewing pleasure is Paglia on Hillary Clinton, coattail rider and enabler of a sexual criminal, as she puts it without compunction. It’s worth it just for the Rock-style eyebrow lift and Gillespie’s...

    <p>Potential White House contender Hillary Clinton criticized the Republican-led U.S. Congress on Monday in a pair of tweets, calling Capitol Hill fights over a key Obama administration nominee and a human trafficking bill a "trifecta against women."</p> <p>Clinton, who has not announced her candidacy for president in 2016 but is nonetheless seen as the Democratic front-runner, has made it clear that if she does run, women's issues will be a central part of her campaign message.</p>

    Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern at the center of President Bill Clinton's impeachment trial, will continue her reentry into public life with a TED talk in late March. Lewinsky's remarks will focus on making "a safer and more compassionate social media environment, drawing from her unique experiences at the epicenter of a media maelstrom in 1998," the TED website said.

    We’re all waiting for today’s real news, following Bibi’s address to Congress. Butt while we’re waiting, how about that cheeky artist? Wow! Imagine the hutzpah of painting a shadow of Monica’s blue dress into Bubba’s official portrait?“There is a shadow on the presidency.”Why couldn’t he have just kept his yap zipped? Why couldn’t he have just kept his little act of sabotage a secret and let some future art historian discover it while researching his papers? No, like everyone else around here, he needed instant gratification. America could have lived with a portrait of Big Dawg that looks like Ted...

    RENOWNED Bucks County portrait artist Nelson Shanks has painted everyone from Princess Diana to President Bill Clinton and from Pope John Paul II to Marisa Tomei. He and his wife, Leona, are the founders of Studio Incamminati, an art school on 12th Street near Callowhill. On a recent Friday, as the north light of a chilly afternoon flooded his Andalusia studio, Shanks, 77, chain smoked cigarettes and drank Diet Cokes while painting Gabrielle, a beautiful young belly dancer, on a 7-by-5-foot canvas. Following his 7-hour session with Gabrielle, Shanks spoke with Stephanie Farr about a hidden secret in his portrait...

    [O]ur media is not guided by the lofty principle of what it is supposed to be about; because history shows that when it comes to these kinds of allegations some powerful men like Bill Cosby are taunted and hunted, while other powerful men with the first name Bill, who have faced similar allegations, are protected. I am of course talking about former-President Bill Clinton, who like Bill Cosby has been accused of rape and has settled a sexual harassment lawsuit. There is also another woman who has accused Clinton of groping her in the White House. All of this is...

    Things aren't looking too good for Bill Cosby. The comedian stayed completely silent when he was asked repeatedly about the rape allegations he's being faced with during an interview with NPR on Saturday, Nov. 15. NPR host Scott Simon asked the Cosby Show star, 77, about the shocking claims that have resurfaced recently while interviewing Cosby and his wife Camille about an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. "This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days," Simon asked the legendary actor. "You're shaking your head...

    Bill Cosby was asked on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday whether he had anything to say about the resurgence of allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women years ago. He didn't. Instead, he shook his head, and refused to say a word. Cosby's long comedy career and pedestal as one of America's favorite TV dads have been overshadowed in recent days, as the allegations have gained new attention, though they are not new. One of his accusers wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post on Thursday, an attempt at a Cosby meme generator was overrun with negative comments and Cosby's scheduled...

    The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week, yet it remained near a 14-year low in a reminder that the labor market appears to be moving toward full health. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 12,000 to 290,000 for the week ended Nov. 8, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast a smaller increase. Claims have now been below 300,000 for nine straight weeks, and in October hit their lowest level since 2000 at 266,000. "This increase is nothing to worry about," said Ian Shepherdson, an...

[....] On Friday, Cosby representative David Brokaw told the Associated Press that the comedian would not appear on Wednesday's edition of CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman as previously scheduled. Brokaw did not give an explanation why. Another canceled booking, on "The Queen Latifah Show" on Oct. 30, was characterized by that show as a postponement granted at Cosby's request.

    This weekend, dozens of former top Clinton White House officials will gather in Little Rock to mark the tenth anniversary of the Clinton Presidential Library. Among those attending will be Vernon Jordan, the legendary Washington lawyer and political fixer who was close to Bill Clinton throughout the White House years. When Clinton got himself into the worst jam of his presidency — the Lewinsky scandal — Jordan was the man he turned to for help. Jordan helped calm a near-hysterical Monica Lewinsky, gave her advice on dealing with investigators, and found her a job. But Jordan's most valuable service to...
