Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is fed up with getting blamed for the Benghazi terrorist attacks. Now, she's giving hints to the Mainstream Media that they should blame President Barry Obama instead.
Politico reports that, "Through intermediaries, Clinton let Brock know she appreciated that sentiment—then echoed it publicly a short time later, a welcome signal to those in her camp who felt she was too afraid to speak her mind during the 2008 presidential primary campaign she so famously lost to Barack Obama. Both Clintons still attribute that defeat to fawning coverage of her rival. “The double standard is alive and well,” Clinton in New York last month. “And I think in many respects the media is the principal propagator of its persistence.”
Hillary Clinton lamented that Obama could pull out his race card and receive joyous coverage from the media.
According to Politico, "As Obama rose, Clinton became increasingly convinced the press was in the bag for her opponent and believed her war room simply wasn’t tough enough. On a typical conference call in December 2007, she unloaded on Mo Elleithee—a hard-working junior Clinton flack—for “not doing a thing to defend me.” Howard Wolfson, the campaign’s communications director, sheepishly stood up for Elleithee and took responsibility himself, while informing Clinton that Elleithee was, in fact, listening in on the call."
Hillary Clinton felt the most enmity towards the Pro-Obama newspaper, the New York Times.
