The reality of Hillary Clinton rolling all GOP contenders is way too dull apparently, so the New York Times would rather get in on that sweet, sweet manufactured controversy early.
The Times mentioned the deal on Sunday in the middle of an article about author Peter Schweizer’s forthcoming book, “Clinton Cash”.
The author in question, human carbuncle Peter Schweizer, has a long history as a GOP operative and advisor and a record of poorly-sourced (and often retracted) hit jobs on Democrats ranging from Al Gore to Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Naturally FOX is eating this up as News Corporation owns Schweizer’s publisher, HarperCollins.
But for the NY Times to pay money to run with Schweizer’s garbage, well, that’s another thing entirely. I want to say that the Gray Lady is winding up to punch Schweizer in the chops, but getting in on the ground floor of the next BENGHAZI! is something that no “media outlet” can pass up with 18 months worth of burrito bowl stories to write otherwise, right?
