The Media's Slobbering Love Affair with the Clintons

In 1998, the then Time Correspondent Nina Burleigh stated that she would be glad to give President Bill Clinton a blow job for keeping abortion legal. Recently, the always non-biased Burleigh declared “Clinton Cash” Peter Schweizer a “right wing” hatchet man, but what would one expect of a female reporter who offered to do oral sex on Bill Clinton? With the exception of a few honest reporters in the New York Times and Washington Post covering the Clintons' recent scandals dealing with the Clinton Foundation, most media has reacted with its usual yawn about yet another Clinton scandal. Let's face it, as one recent poll showed, the majority of Democrats don’t even know there is a controversy over the Clinton Foundation, and as we've seen with George Stephanopolous, the Clintons' apologists are everywhere. So either the majority of Democrats are totally uniformed or the media that they depend upon is not covering the story. (Of course, it could be both.)
This election cycle “Nina Burleigh” may be Wall Street Journal's Monica Langley, who played a little knee touching knee with the then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she told Madam Secretary she wanted to ride on Hillary’s lap to the White House. As one Clinton aide noted, it was amazing Monica didn’t try knee in between knee. To say Monica Langley invaded Hillary’s space would be an understatement. (It should be noted the male aides to Hillary Clinton seemed to enjoy the whole spectacle as if they were being treated to a possible little girl-on-girl action. What a classless bunch of guys.)
Time Magazine put Hillary as the world's 100 most influential people, and the writer Laurene Powel Jobs (wife of the late Steven Jobs and past contributor to Hillary) concluded, “Hillary Clinton is not familiar. She is Revolutionary. Not radical but revolutionary: the distinction is crucial. She is one of America’s greatest modern creations. Her decades in our public life must not blind us to the fact that she represents new realities and possibilities. Indeed, those same decades have conferred upon her what newness usually lacks: judgment and even wisdom.”
If Ms. Jobs is not gushing about what a wise and revolutionary woman Hillary Clinton is, US News and World Report Susan Milligan thinks it is unfair to ask Democrats voters what Secretary of State Clinton accomplished. Of course she added, “Frankly, mostly what a Secretary of State does is keep something from, you know, becoming a massive crisis.” The Obama policies that she helped to initiate have been one disaster after another. Libya, which was supposed to her signature policy, is one complete fiasco in which ISIS and other terrorist groups have essentially taken over. While much of the media continues their slobbering love affair with Hillary, the world she helped create is falling apart at an inconvenient time.
