Major networks have downplayed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server, but WikiLeaks revealed how one journalist told her to take it seriously and respond like Kennedy did to the Bay of Pigs disaster. According to Wikileaks, The Hill columnist Brent Budowsky sent an email to Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta in August 2015 suggesting Clinton should respond to the email scandal the same way John F. Kennedy responded to the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. In the same email, he clarified that “publically” he has continued “defending [Clinton] with no-holds barred.”
During a press conference in Vatican City on Tuesday, people described as “papal heavies” interrupted “an awkward question” being asked by Marc Morano -- publisher of the skeptical Climate Depot website -- who wanted to know what Ban Ki-Moon, secretary-general of the United Nations, thinks about climate change deniers.
According to an article written by James Dellingpole for the Breitbart.com site, Morano was asking the U.N. official if he had a message for the delegation of scientists who had flown to Rome to urge Pope Francis to “reconsider his ill-advised position climate change” as part of an exchange that has recently been described as “nasty” and “almost like denying gravity.”
The Hill published a story about a mysterious virus outbreak which particularly affects children. The most notable thing about the article is how the author failed to note the many warnings about the possible cause of the outbreak.
There’s that clichéd saying of “where’s there smoke, there’s fire.” Some in the media should have heeded that advice since a plurality of Americans sees a bias in the polling conducted between President Obama and Governor Romney. Oh, and, by the way, this information comes from a Daily Kos/SEIU poll, so it's hardly a right-wing source. Justin Sink of The Hill wrote today that:
The media's ongoing contribution to the Obama reelection effort is fairly obvious: omit or downplay news stories and polling data that cast the Obama administration in a negative light while hyping trivial Romney gaffes or media-manufactured tempests-in-teapots in order to focus the election narrative on the Republican candidate's deficiencies - real or or imagined -- rather than the incumbent Democrat's record.
