Hillary Clinton’s Camp to NYT: You Guys Are Mean

Everybody knows there’s a Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy against the Clintons. But you probably had no idea just how insidious it is. Its malevolent tendrils reach all the way to the Grey Lady!

Alana Goodman, Washington Free Beacon:

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…

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…

If she’s no longer a public figure, if she’s not planning to run for president, why does she need her staff to complain to the NYT? And why is the NYT holding secret meetings with them, anyway?

If she is planning to run for president, how can they claim she’s off-limits? Besides, the media harshly scrutinizes all sorts of people who don’t hold office.

At the risk of getting a visit from them myself, I think Hillary’s minions are being a bit silly.

Even CNN’s John King is laughing at her:

THAT’S NOT FUNNY!!!
