Networks Silent on Clinton Aide’s Ties to Radical Muslim Journal

A major report broke in the New York Post on Sunday that laid out top Hillary Clinton Aide Huma Abedin’s past where she worked for a radical Muslim journal. “For a decade [Abedin] edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11,” wrote the Post’s Paul Sperry. But you would never know it if you watched the “Big Three” networks ABC, CBS, and NBC on Monday. They neither covered it in their morning shows nor their evening broadcasts.

“Clinton's long-time aide Huma Abedin is under scrutiny after the New York Post first reported she edited a publication, The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, working under her mother for more than a decade,” reported Fox News’ Mike Emanuel as part of a longer report on Clinton’s latest scandals.

According to Sperry, Abedin’s mother who is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal once, “Wrote that Clinton and other speakers were advancing a “very aggressive and radically feminist” agenda that was un-Islamic and wrong because it focused on empowering women.”

Quoting Nick Merrill, a spokesperson for the Clinton campaign, Emanuel stated, ““These tabloid claims are more of the unfounded vitriol being pushed by Steve Bannon and Trump’s other conspiracy theorist peddling cronies. It’s not surprising, but it is disappointing.””

The Clinton campaign spokesperson Nick Merrill told Fox, “These tabloid claims are more of the unfounded vitriol being pushed by Steve Bannon and Trump’s other conspiracy theorist peddling cronies. It’s not surprising, but it is disappointing.”
