The Times Goes Ga-Ga Over Hillary
"New York Olympic Team Puts a Star on the Pedestal." I kid you not -- that is the title. "Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was greeted like a rock star as she made her way around this Asian island on Tuesday promoting New York for the 2012 Summer Games," says the Times, breathlessly, saliva dripping.
Not a word, of course, about the unflattering book Ed Klein just wrote about her -- which this shameless bit of flackery was obviously cooked up to counter.
"NYC2012 officials were giddy over her reception, and some said they believed she had succeeded in changing a few minds in New York's favor," gushed the Times. Yeah. Real giddy. Only the Times was giddy. The Olympic Committee officials were too busy tossing New York's bid in the dustbin.
This must surely must be the worst story the Times has run about a politician in quite a while. No wonder they steal from blogs, if this is the best they can do.
