CBS NEWS EDITS OUT BILL CLINTON’S ‘FREQUENTLY’ REMARK ABOUT HILLARY’S FAINTING EPISODES.

Reminder: David Rhodes, the president of CBS News, is the brother of Obama’s now infamous Middle East advisor Ben Rhodes, “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru,” who committed the ultimate Kinsley gaffe when he told the New York Times a few months ago his sycophantic DNC-MSM correspondents—whom he contemptuously dismissed as “the blob”—are on average “27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”

And that’s just how his brother at CBS seems to like it. As John Sexton writes at Hot Air, “CBS News has a history of failing to highlight information that might tend to make a Democratic candidate look bad. Recall that in 2012 Mitt Romney was widely judged to have blown a debate with President Obama when he suggested the president had not identified the Benghazi attack as an “act of terror” in a speech given the next morning. CNN’s Candy Crowley fact-checked Romney and CNN backed her up later. Meanwhile, CBS News had video from a 60 Minutes interview with the president which was shot the same day Obama gave the speech. In the edited segment Obama agreed he had avoided labeling the attack terrorism. CBS knew it had this clip but sat on it until two days before the election when it was quietly posted online. Former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson told me in 2014 she believed CBS intentionally sat on the material.”

I dunno – frequent fainting episodes seem like what King’s de facto boss Joe Biden would call a “BFD.” But then, as Iowahawk would say, “Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.” Curiously though, the DNC-MSM’s efforts at blocking Hillary’s health episodes only seems to be powering them forward.
