Hillary Clinton scandals ignored by media as Presidential race heats up
Hillary Clinton scandals continued this week, but major broadcast networks refused to cover any of them and further extends the network blackout to six days since any of them were last mentioned on a network morning or evening newscast.
Fox News Channel’s Special Report offered a full report from correspondent Ed Henry that touched on news that a Democratic member of Congress has called for an independent review of Clinton’s e-mails, a House committee hearing covered her e-mail scandal, and a report that Bill Clinton took in $26 million from a Swedish group that was lobbying the State Department on Iran sanctions.
“Hillary Clinton joked about her e-mail server behind closed doors,” Henry stated, noting that Democratic Congressman Mike Capuano (Mass.) told a Boston radio station that he believes that Hillary Clinton’s e-mails should be subject to an independent review.
Henry added that Capuano “does not believe Republicans on the Hill will be fair, so an independent umpire needs to investigate whether only personal e-mail was deleted.”
Later, FNC’s chief White House correspondent briefly summarized the findings of an article published in Wednesday’s Washington Times:
Today, The Washington Times reported the former President collected $26 million for the foundation from a fundraising arm in Sweden while that country lobbied the Secretary of State on sanctions that threatened its business with Iran.
The New York Post reported at a closed-door fundraiser on Monday that Clinton joked the White House would not have been hacked if they used her server.
With Wednesday’s omission of the Clinton scandals across the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC, this marks six days since any of the Clinton scandals were mentioned on a morning or evening newscast of NBC, 11 days since that occurred on CBS and 10 days since a Clinton scandal came up on an ABC newscast.
