NYT Slams Clinton Minions For Misdirection and Obfuscation Surrounding Money Scandal

Posted: Apr 24, 2015 9:30 AM

The New York Times is slamming the Clinton campaign and their allies for accusing the newspaper of outsourcing their journalism to "right-wing" authors and sources. 

"I wonder is if the Clinton message machine ever decides to kind of recalibrate and dial it back a little bit. Because right now, and this isn't all coming from the Clinton camp itself but from the orbit around them where you have these people whose main goal is to misdirect and obfuscate every time there's the slightest bit of criticism about the Clintons leadership," NYT reporter Jeremy Peters said during an interview with MSNBC. "They are definitely misdirecting here. I mean, this is what Media Matters exists to do."

Team Clinton has argued allegations Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation during her time at the State Department, which are apparently detailed in the new book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer, are simply part of a vast right-wing conspiracy. The allegations are being pursued by the New York Times, Washington Post, Reuters, and Fox News Channel.
