Why NOT questioning Hillary Clinton’s Illness is Media Malpractice … VIDEO
Some media outlets such as the New York Post, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Infowars, and Republicans are under fire and criticism from outlets like Huffingtonpost, The Daily Beast, Seattle Times, The Week, Politico, Media Matters, the Los Angeles Times, MSNBC, BuzzFeed, Atlantic Wire and the DailyDownload for questioning the veracity of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illness. But the real question is—how can they not question Hillary’s truth-telling?
Watch to see why NOT questioning Hillary Clinton’s honesty is nothing short of media malpractice.
It is absolutely awful when one cannot take a government official’s word at face value but that is the world we live in today. If Hillary had not told so many falsehoods in the past there would be no reason to question her honesty today.
That includes lying to investigators. Remember Travelgate?
Seven years after the firings Special Prosecutor Robert Ray (who succeeded Ken Starr in the Office of the Independent Counsel), concluded in his final report that Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony was “factually inaccurate.” “The overwhelming evidence establishes that she played a role in the decision to fire the employees. … Thus, her statement to the contrary under oath was factually false.”
Seven years later, the public had tuned out. Ten years later, the Clintons re-wrote the facts about Travelgate in their respective memoirs absolving Hillary of any wrongdoing or of telling falsehoods to investigators—a prosecutable offense.
After Ray’s report on Travelgate was released, Dale said, “Everyone, especially Robert Ray, knows Hillary Clinton lied under oath about her role. It is disappointing that the Office of Independent Counsel … would not prosecute her simply because of a fear of what a Washington, D.C., jury might do.”
If your or I did what Hillary did we would have been charged with perjury.
The truth is not left or right. It is right and wrong. A liar and a hypocrite, be it in the Democrat or Republican party, is still a liar and a hypocrite–just like corruption, whether it appears on the Right or the Left of the political spectrum is still corruption. The media should be speaking truth to power instead of attacking each other.
Wishing Hillary Clinton a speedy recovery and looking forward to her telling the truth again.
President John F. Kennedy once said during a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961:
Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed — and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment — the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution — not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants” — but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.
