Hillary Clinton has only answered eight questions from the press since announcing that she is running for president, and it’s been three weeks since she last talked to reporters. The Washington Post is counting every minute. Here are a few of the many individuals who have not been to afraid to speak to the media since April 21:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is facing an array of scandals related to her family’s global charity operation, the Clinton Foundation, and its shady dealings with foreign governments and oligarchs. As a result, Republicans are criticizing her. Guess which angle the media find particularly fascinating?
The Washington Free Beacon was shocked to find the New York Post reporting that Kate Upton’s ego is “ruining her career.”
After spending the entirety of the 39 hours since the report was published analyzing the full body of her work, however, we have found that the Post is terribly mistaken. Kate Upton is just as perfect as ever and is doing great.
The critic James Wolcott is peeved. “Mitt Romney’s fateful decision this January not to pursue the presidency for a third futile time deprives those of us in the bleachers of a rare-ish opportunity to watch a representative of the 1 percent in plastic action,” he writes in Vanity Fair’s April “special issue” on “the age of money.” There are few chances, Wolcott avers, to observe in public a member of the financial and social caste that rules America. “It is not often we get to study how a scion moves, behaves, and simulates reflective thought under changeable conditions.”
A failed presidential candidate has dominated the media coverage these past few days. Oddly enough, it’s not Hillary Clinton.
Despite the new revelations this week about the massive amounts of money the Bill, Hillary, & Chelsea Clinton Foundation has raised from questionable foreign governments and shady billionaires—something even Clinton’s defenders admit is a problem—the media hasn’t shown much interest in the story. In fact, media coverage of the Clinton Foundation has been dwarfed by the hyperventilating over failed presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani’s remarks about President Obama’s lack of love for America.
