Hillary Team Calls for Media Blackout of Anti-Clinton Books
by Alexander Marlow 25 Jul 2014, 7:31 AM PDT

Soon there will be three anti-Clinton books on the market, which is apparently enough to have gotten under the skin of Team Hillary.

The First Family Detail by Ronald Kessler, set for release next month, will join Clinton, Inc. by the Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper and Blood Feud by Ed Klein on bookshelves. Yesterday we reported that Clinton, Inc. has shot up the charts and now both Halper and Klein’s books are outselling Hillary Clinton’s recent memoir Hard Choices.

“With Klein, Halper and Kessler, we now have a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “Their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled, and legitimate media outlets who know with every fiber of their beings that it is completely made up should not get down in the gutter with them.”

What does he mean “not allowed”? The interview doesn’t detail any specific behavior that drew Team Hillary's ire beyond the simple act of writing a book. Without the benefit of full context, it appears as though Hillary's flack is suggesting the books be banned. At a minimum he is imploring the overwhelmingly pro-Clinton mainstream press to freeze out these authors and prevent their ideas and findings from being discussed on the media stage.

This is latently hypocritical coming from the folks surrounding the former First Lady, who famously defended “the right to debate and disagree" on the campaign trail in 2008.

"No wonder there is a mainstream media blackout of my book -- the Clintons have issued their edicts," Daniel Halper said an in email. "They are proving the thesis of my book."

Klein has said that "all" of the criticism of his book has been directed at him personally and not the facts and arguments in his book.

Of course; that's SOP for liberals/progs; they have no argument so they instead go on an Alinsky-like attack to isolate, polarize, and ridicule people whom they do not like.

 I don't remember her wanting a media blackout on the anti-Bush books. :pondering:  Maybe the ones written about him were more truthful. :whistle:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

And the media will bow in obeisance and try to block the sales.

Which will probably increase the sales of all three books.      :smokin:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
