What Happened? Hillary’s book gets torched by the media.

Hillary's book
The press has been going after Hillary since 1992. Here she is defending herself during the Whitewater witch-hunt.

Hillary’s book is on sale. As expected, there are critics galore tearing her and the book apart.

In a nutshell, from our perspective here’s what happened in 2016:

While political pundits and the mainstream media were cowering in the back of the bus and kissing Donald Trump’s immense ass (i.e. ego), their real prey was a familiar one: Hillary Clinton.

The media has been trashing Hillary from the day she first set foot in the White House as First Lady. Anyone who has followed her career could have predicted that when she ran for president, starting with the 2008 primaries, the media’s gang rape would start anew.

If there was one reason I didn’t want her to run again in 2016, it was the spectacle of seeing her mercilessly attacked in the press while her opponent was given a pass despite his crude, dangerous, and misogynist behavior.

Do we really think that Hillary’s use of a private email server deserved the attention it got, while Trump’s “vagina groping” and psychopathic behavior was barely mentioned?

Along with the Russians, the FBI director, Sanders, and terrible advice from her campaign staff, Hillary can thank the media for helping Trump get elected.

Now that Hillary’s book, What Happened, is on bookshelves the media is doing what it always has done: reshaping facts and events to suit their bias against her. Nevermind that Hillary’s book is meant to portray her perspective on the campaign. Even as I write this, dozens of journalists are out there writing their own versions of what Hillary really thought, said, and did during the campaign.

Here are links to some current news stories and opinion pieces about Hillary and What Happened. I’ve tried to include a few positive, less prejudicial stories about her. No doubt you’ll find one or two that align with your own political prejudices.

Hard Choices by Hillary ClintonAnyone who has followed Hillary’s career knows she is a favorite target for the GOP and countless others on the right end of the political spectrum. I’ve personally watched the attacks go on for at least 20 years, and I’m sure that we can go back to her Little Rock days and find much of the same thing.

I’ve come to the conclusion that her attackers are basically afraid of her. She has beat them at their own game time after time. She’s one of the most lethal adversaries a right-wing politician will ever face.

Her supporters are equally enthusiastic in their admiration for Hillary. She doesn’t quite walk on water, but some pro-Hillary types that I know probably believe she can.

Now her latest book, Hard Choices, tells her side of the story during her service as Secretary of State. You can expect conservative reviews to pan the book and Hillary. You can also expect progressives and other left-leaning pundits to write glowing reviews, and forget as we all sometimes do that reality is always sifted through our own unique perspective. Obviously, that goes for Hillary as well.

The best thing to do is to get your hands on your own copy of her book and read it. Don’t let others — including me — draw your conclusions for you. This is a task you need to do yourself.
