Cheer­ing Hil­lary

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

As ex­pected, L. Brent Bozell III pulls no punches in his forth­com­ing book, “White­wash: What the Me­dia Won’t Tell You About Hil­lary Clin­ton, but Con­ser­va­tives Will.”

A card-car­ry­ing mem­ber of the lat­ter cat­e­gory, the founder and pres­i­dent of the Me­dia Re­search Cen­ter de­scribes how a “lib­eral news me­dia” helped build the ca­reer of the Arkansas first lady turned sen­a­tor from New York, and now are try­ing to pro­pel her into the White House.

“The na­tional me­dia have fla­grantly aban­doned their duty as a sup­pos­edly in­de­pen­dent, dis­pas­sion­ate press when it comes to cov­er­age of Hil­lary Clin­ton,” Mr. Bozell ar­gues in an un­cor­rected proof of the book, due for re­lease next month.

“They have shame­lessly served as cheer­lead­ers for Mrs. Clin­ton from the mo­ment she emerged on the na­tional scene in 1992 [. . .] con­sis­tently hail[ing] her as a trail­blaz­ing pi­o­neer, a fem­i­nist role model, a bril­liant in­tel­lect, a politi­cian of strik­ing com­pas­sion, and in­spir­ing leader, and more.”
