The MSM Agrees: Hillary Clinton Will Fully Recover

I really don’t know how bad Hillary’s health news is, but her blood clot — a transverse sinus thrombosis — is an incredibly dangerous condition. Yet the MSM as a whole seems content to simply repeat the short statement her doctors made saying they expect her to fully recover:

And I’d just like to add  a little to Mona Charen’s Corner post, the “Backlash Against the Backlash on Hillary.” Mona writes:

But Parker is taking a cheap shot at conservatives. The skepticism that greeted the concussion story arose not from partisan nastiness but from Clinton’s flamboyant history of lying.

There’s also the simple fact that we still don’t know anything about Clinton’s concussion. We don’t know the date it occurred, if she was admitted to a hospital, what treatment was prescribed, etc. When the concussion story was first reported, we didn’t hear from her doctor, but CNN, for example, was quick to grant anonymity to a “senior State Department official” who said the concussion was “not severe.”

It’s not just that Clinton has a history of lying, it’s that all the information that’s been put out to date has been to downplay whatever is wrong with her.

Why Was Richard Spencer on CNN?

Self-avowed white nationalist Richard Spencer went on CNN yesterday. What he said isn't particularly interesting, because Richard Spencer isn't particularly interesting. What is interesting, at least in the sense that a multi-car pile up on the side of the interstate is interesting, is the bastard logic of the ... Read More
