CARLSON: ...The main message of your book is that conservatives are going to tell you stuff that mainstream media is [sic] not about Hillary Clinton.

BOZELL: You know, when we thought of the idea at first, we wondered, "Should we do another book on Hillary Clinton?" Then we isolated the media's coverage of Hillary alone, and, it was astounding.

My colleague Tim Graham and I looked at this and we said that this is a pattern, where since 1992, the media have been her cheerleaders. Every single time she's gotten into trouble, they throw up a big wall between her and the American people. The American people don't learn the truth about her. She continues doing what she's doing. And to this day, you're seeing that same pattern.

Look at the Norman Hsu scandal, that we just went through.

CARLSON: The bundling campaign donation scandal.

BOZELL: Here is, as Bob Tyrrell calls it, the chop suey connection. Here's another Asian fundraiser who's sneaking money in. The L.A.
