Rush Limbaugh mentioned today how it wasn’t just conservative media (barely a media, more of a medium) going after Hillary Clinton’s dodgy foundation funding, but a vast left-wing conspiracy too.
The Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, including one donation that violated its ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday.
Most of the contributions were possible because of exceptions written into the foundation’s 2008 agreement, which included limits on foreign-government donations.
The agreement, reached before Clinton’s nomination amid concerns that countries could use foundation donations to gain favor with a Clinton-led State Department, allowed governments that had previously donated money to continue making contributions at similar levels.
The new disclosures, provided in response to questions from The Washington Post, make clear that the 2008 agreement did not prohibit foreign countries with interests before the U.S. government from giving money to the charity closely linked to the secretary of state.
That’s the WaPo, but you can read similar stories in the NY Times, USA Today, MSNBC, CNN, Reuters.
We believe that the best way to unlock human potential is through the power of creative collaboration. That’s why we build partnerships between businesses, NGOs, governments, and individuals everywhere to work faster, better, and leaner; to find solutions that last; and to transform lives and communities from what they are today to what they can be, tomorrow.
Everywhere we go, we’re trying to work ourselves out of a job.
Sounds like Hillary’s just about managed that.
But why? Let’s set aside the least likely possibility: that the mainstream media is just doing its job. Since when?
No, they have a motive. Could they be anti-Hillary? Surely, she’s made her share of enemies, and her political ear is about as tin as the Woodman in the Wizard of Oz.
But come on. Don’t be thick. There’s one overriding reason the media is Not Ready for Hillary.
This isn’t hard, people.
