Amid all the discussion of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential prospects, the most important question is ignored: Why Hillary? How did the First Lady to a disgraced, impeached president become a presidential front-runner despite never having held elective office before 2001; her staggering number of personal, political, and financial scandals; and her leftist political agenda?
The answer is that for two decades she has had the most powerful weapon in politics—the national “news” media—shamelessly promoting her presidential aspirations.
In Whitewash, L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham of the Media Research Center, America’s preeminent media watchdog organization, expose the unprecedented media favoritism that is the real key to Hillary’s political career. Marshalling stunning evidence compiled exclusively by the Media Research Center, the authors show how the media have relentlessly promoted Hillary from the moment Time magazine introduced her to the country as an “amalgam of Betty Crocker, Mother Teresa, and Oliver Wendell Holmes.”
To expose the truth about Hillary that the supposedly objective media have buried, Bozell and Graham have interviewed dozens of leading conservatives who are fighting to let Americans hear the whole story: Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, Mary Matalin, Laura Ingraham, Cal Thomas, and many others.
• How the frequent claim that no one has been more investigated than Hillary Clinton is not just incorrect, but utterly absurd
• How prominent female reporters admit that they’re “rooting” for Mrs. Clinton, their “mascot”
• The surprising ways Hillary’s media allies have tried to fend off Barack Obama’s challenge
• How the national media continue to promote Mrs. Clinton’s socialist health care takeover as “ahead of its time”
• The network news anchor to whom Hillary gushed, “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
• The Republican congressman who tells how the Clintons “went after” him “mercilessly” for daring to investigate Hillary scandals
• How the press ruthlessly attacks anyone in the alternative media who dares challenge Hillary
Mrs. Clinton’s media flacks deride every negative charge against her as “old news,” but Whitewash shows that Hillary’s pattern of deception, corruption, and overreaching political schemes has been repeated again and again precisely because the media ignore the scandalous behavior. And the pattern will be repeated in 2008 and beyond if Americans aren’t exposed at last to the truth that the servile national media have obscured.

Note in their own promotional material the sentence '...the authors show how the media have relentlessly promoted Hillary from the moment Time magazine introduced her to the country as an ¿amalgam of Betty Crocker, Mother Teresa, and Oliver Wendell Holmes.¿ ' This, they claim, proves that columnist Margaret Carlson is and was a cheerleader for Hillary Clinton for years! One small problem: What Carlson actually wrote in that Time item was this: 'Friends of Hillary Clinton would have you believe she is an amalgam of Betty Crocker, Mother Teresa and Oliver Wendell Holmes. She gets up before dawn, even on weekends, and before her first cup of coffee discusses educational reform. She then hops into her fuel-efficient car with her perfectly behaved daughter for a day of good works.' She is mocking Hillary supporters, not praising Hillary! And when challenged on this falsehood, what do Bozell and Graham have to say? Well, first, they say Carlson's use of this phrase proves how much she loves Hillary. Apparently using a glowing quote from others to mock those others proves you actually agree with them, per Bozell and Graham. So does this mean when the press told us that Bush supporters consider him '...an intelligent man...', and '...a deep thinker...', does this then prove the press actually think highly of George W. Bush? Apparently, per Bozell and Graham! They went on in their response to claim it doesn't matter if they lie about what Carlson really said, because they know what she really meant! Yep, that's quality truth-telling!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
