Camp Hillary wasn't happy with the New York Times reporting about Hillary. So they had a secret meeting with The Times in Washington DC. Sources familiar with the event say that the meeting was 'intimidation'. Hillary ... capable and strong ... and typical Chicago thuggery political tactics.

Hillary to New York Times: Back Off
Inside the secret summit between Team Hillary and the New York Times


Some of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides blasted the New York Times for what they said was unfair coverage of the former first lady during a recent secret meeting with the paper’s Washington bureau, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Sources said the meeting included Clinton advisers Philippe Reines and Huma Abedin, as well as Times Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan and national political reporter Amy Chozick, who has been on the Clinton beat for the paper.

During the closed-door gathering, Clinton aides reportedly griped about the paper’s coverage of the potential 2016 candidate, arguing that Clinton has left public office and not be subjected to harsh scrutiny, according to a source familiar with the discussions.


So since she is now out of office, they think she shouldn't be subjected to harsh scrutiny? Really? She should get a free pass and not be vetted like all other 2016 potential candidates?

Hillary Clinton needs to be blasted about bengazi at any and every event she attends until she gives up some answers. And if she uses the bump on the head as her forgetting about it then she isn't fit for office anyway.

I never like these types of articles that reference having 'sources' but can't disclose who they are.

I'm not a Hilary Clinton fan, but the actual substance (none) in this piece means you can really just believe whatever you want. It could have been a lie, it could have been intimidation, it could have been an off the cuff comment, a joke even, or a legitimate attempt at controlling the media, but you know that's what political parties pay politicians to do - to run around controlling the media.

I have no doubt that Team Hillary is very capable of doing this, and is very well practiced in the art of political intimidation.

If Hillary is vetted like Obama was....
She has no worries.

Very true. He was given a free pass on everything. And those that brought legitimate issues to the forefront were called 'racist' for doing so. I suppose with Hillary, anyone pointing things out will be misogynistic or something.

Tim Russert before his heart attack, is on congressional record saying he would be given exclusive access to Bush administration officials as long as he hyped an unnecessary war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Let's not forget that as well.

What qualifies her as presidential material?

Her marriage?
Her short senate time?
Her failure as Secretary?



An even broader question.

What qualities do we need in a president?

Honesty

Integrity

Someone who takes an oath to the GD piece of paper that isn't just lip service.

Someone who puts DUTY above party.

Someone who puts Honor above party.

Someone who puts country above ALL ELSE.

But that is a person we will never get.

We get the CLinton's.

We get the people like the current guy.

We get exactly the opposite of what this country needs.

Well, well, well another arrogant politicians that think they are entitle to privacy, maybe somebody should tell the hag that as a political figure running for candidacy she has not privacy.

And we get Reagan's and offspring of Prescott Bush who did business with Nazis...after the Kennedys were killed by our own government do you expect a savior in the oval office?

That meeting probably lasted much longer than was necessary. The article said Huma Abedin was there. She should have just threatened to give the Times' staff cell phone numbers to her husband.

None but the completely ignorant Democrat voter can deny the probably veracity of this claim. It is SPOP… Standard Progressive Operating Procedure. Intimidate everyone into compliance.

Hillary has zero connection to Chicago.

So this statement is just illogical and makes no sense.

And this isn't an uncommon thing with political campaigns, they all do it...just that some are more effective than others. Just sounds like sour grapes that Hillary actually has the influence to do this and others don't.

Surprised they didn't go after the tabloid news papers that you see in the grocery store check out area.

Lots of unflattering pics of her, with headlines screaming "HILLARY HAS BRAIN DAMAGE!!!"

Personally I don't see how that's news. I thought everyone knew: all politicians have brain damage. I think it's a requirement.

What Business do politicians have at newspapers? If I were a politician I would never consider trying to get a newspaper to say one thing or another about me. I`d try to earn my respect, not enforce it.

just a Pow wow... the Clinton team trying to have the beat reporters do nothing more than Fluff reporting on or about Her

Their reasoning might be...after all she is not directly running or endorsing anything connected to the November 2014 Midterm election

but if she endorses or puts her political nose in the midterm campaigns... then 'harsh scrutiny' should be the order-of-the-day and put sunshine on all her machinations, private & political

Maybe this news that she is taking blood thinners is one of the things the election team & Hillary Aides want out of the loop
