Hil­lary Crocker?

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

More shock­ing pink tid­bits are ooz­ing from “White­wash: What the Me­dia Won’t Tell You About Hil­lary Clin­ton, But Con­ser­va­tives Will,” the up­com­ing tell-all by Me­dia Re­search Cen­ter guru L. Brent Bozell III and co-au­thor Tim Gra­ham.

“The na­tional me­dia have fla­grantly aban­doned their duty as in­de­pen­dent and dis­pas­sion­ate jour­nal­ists,” they write. “When Repub­li­cans are in­ves­ti­gated by the me­dia, it is done with such tenac­ity, it usu­ally leads to a hu­mil­i­at­ing res­ig­na­tion or elec­toral de­feat. When there is a hint of im­pro­pri­ety by the Clin­tons, the me­dia re­act quite dif­fer­ently.”

The au­thors are con­vinced the press, through shame­less fawn­ing, “turned Hil­lary into a pres­i­den­tial con­tender in the first place, de­spite her lack of po­lit­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence and her re­peated scan­dals.”

“Scan­dals like fundraiser Norman Hsu’s crim­i­nal­ity are ig­nored or down­played; but if the story breaks out, re­porters turn it into an at­tack by “mean-spir­ited” Repub­li­cans and their “pol­i­tics of per­sonal de­struc­tion,” they note.

Mrs. Clin­ton only grants net­work in­ter­views on the con­di­tion they are taped and with­out de­bate, they say, adding that sup­pos­edly “ob­jec­tive” re­porters reg­u­larly shower her with praise, claim­ing she’s a com­bi­na­tion of “Betty Crocker, Mother Teresa and Oliver Wen­dell Holmes.”

The book is due out from Crown Fo­rum on Nov. 13.
