SHOCKER: Left Wing Politico Offered Chelsea Clinton A SOFTBALL INTERVIEW
The Left’s favorite person in the world is not Hillary Clinton, but her daughter, Chelsea. According to newly obtained emails, it seems POLITICO was set to profile Chelsea in a glossy interview that would have made her look good.
A smoking gun is always a nice thing to have, but it’s not like we need one to prove once and for all that Politico is dedicated to electing Hillary Clinton president. Nevertheless, through a Freedom of Information request, Gawker claims to have found a smoking gun –a series of emails from Politico honcho Mike Allen promising Chelsea Clinton a “no risk … no surprises … something she would like” interview where all the questions would be agreed upon in advance.
This is from a January 10, 2013 email from Allen to Phillipe Reines, an aide to Hillary Clinton. Allen is hoping to land Chelsea for an interview — but if these emails are real, I think it’s pretty obvious Allen is hoping to curry favor with Hillary Clinton by offering her daughter a sweet piece of public relations on any subject Chelsea chooses:
This would be a way to send a message during inaugural week: No one besides me would ask her a question, and you and I would agree on them precisely in advance. This would be a relaxed conversation, and our innovative format (like a speedy Playbook Breakfast) always gets heavy social-media pickup. The interview would be “no-surprises”: I would work with you on topics, and would start with anything she wants to cover or make news on. Quicker than a network hit, and reaching an audience you care about with no risk.
Isn’t that just shocking?
