Most of us pick sides. We know who we want to win and why. This causes us problems when it comes to reporting the News. Most people talk about being fair, but there is a bias in the stories that we select to report on and the ones we skip.
So it is not that big of a surprise that the left-leaning New York Times has not run an article on the recent revelation from Hillary’s email.
As I reported, there is a correlation between Clinton Foundation donors and those who had access to Hillary while acting as Secretary of State. This has been big news. Even though some have said that there was no law broken, it is clear that this was a pay to play deal. But not a peep from the NYT.
The Associated Press scoop Tuesday found that at least 85 of 154 people who got an audience with Hillary Clinton while she led the State Department had donated to her family charity. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million and included private citizens with business before the government. It’s as close to a “pay to play” smoking gun as has emerged to date
Yet, the investigative report appeared nowhere in Wednesday’s 46-page print edition. Coming weeks after a front-page story basically saying journalists feel free to be subjective in the current race because Trump is such a threat to the Republic, critics of the “paper of record” say it smells like fish wrap.
This might have something to do with the fact that the NYT has a group of investigators, and they are being careful. They are vetting the story and its sources. But it is most likely that this is not the case.
We can come to this conclusion based on the fact that it has stated which of the two major candidates they are pulling for in the November election.
