Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Emails Show ‘Journalist’ Promised Positive Coverage of Chelsea Clinton

Here’s one example of how the Clinton Machine gets so much positive media coverage. “Journalists” stand up and offer it to them in return for access. Gosh, it is almost like big donors offering the Clinton’s “donations” for access. Even words mean different things in Clintonlandia.

And what could please Hillary more than some nice coverage of the Heir Apparent (Hillary already assumes she will be president), dearest Chelsea.

Newly-released emails between Politico’s Chief White House correspondent Mike Allen and a former State Department official show Allen’s access comes at the cost of his own credibility.

The website Gawker has pried loose another batch of Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines’ emails with reporters while working for Hillary.

In an email dated January 10, 2013 addressed to Reines, Allen floated the idea of interviewing Chelsea. Allen’s assures Reines that he’ll produce totally positive coverage of Chelsea Clinton:

This would be a way to send a message during inaugural week: No one besides me would ask her a question, and you and I would agree on them precisely in advance. This would be a relaxed conversation, and our innovative format (like a speedy Playbook Breakfast) always gets heavy social-media pickup. The interview would be “no-surprises”: I would work with you on topics, and would start with anything she wants to cover or make news on. Quicker than a network hit, and reaching an audience you care about with no risk.

Allen apparently received the go-ahead from Reines, because in an another email sent an hour later, Allen told Reines:

Will def. write Matt if that’s what you recommend. I was just hoping for your confidential advice on what topics they’re most interested in — what might maximize chances. I think this is something she would like: a way to send a message on a big weekend, but in a no-risk way, since they know I would stick to topics we agree on.

“Matt” is Chelsea’s spokesman [Chelsea has a spokesman!], Matt McKenna.

Allen’s eager attempt to draft “no-risk” interview questions with Chelsea Clinton’s camp is especially noteworthy given Allen’s public opposition to low-risk interviews with powerful figures. Just five weeks after he contacted Reines, Allen published a column concerning the Obama White House’s attempts to steer various media narratives about the presidency. One of the pair’s main complaints centered on Obama’s preference for softball interviews.
