Hillary Clinton and Sid Vicious

On Monday, after 40,150 minutes, Hillary Clinton finally deigned to answer some questions from the court scribes. The former Secretary of State laughably claimed that she wanted all of the emails from her private email account on her private server that she decided she wanted the public to see should be "out there" as soon as possible. Something she could have done herself months ago if she really wanted.

The most interesting part of Ms. Clinton's brief interaction with the media was her response to yesterday's New York Times story detailing emails sent to her by old pal Sidney "Sid Vicious" Blumenthal, the former Clinton hatchet man.

Blumenthal had sent Clinton "unsolicited" emails on Libya that appear to have been designed to influence the State Department's dealings with that country. Blumenthal hoped to make big bucks when Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was finally dead.

Ms. Clinton's response?

When you're in the public eye and when you're in an official position, I think you do have to work to make sure you're not caught in a bubble and you only hear from a certain, small group of people. I'm going to keep talking to my old friends whoever they are.

Really? If you want out of the Washington "bubble" you're going to go to Sid Vicious? No one ever accused Blumenthal of being Slats Grobnik.

Whether it's Benghazi, the Clinton Family Foundation Slush Fund or Bill Clinton's visits to sex island, do the Democrats really want the Clintons anywhere near the White House again?

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.

The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
