NY Times Bows to Hillary’s Demands

nytThe heat is on Hillary.

She can’t seem to escape this whole email, private server, handling of classified information thing.

The Congress won’t let Hillary off the hook.

They want answers.

So the investigation continues.

And the Clinton Camp flexed its muscle and forced the New York Times to change its lede of the story announcing this new round of private investigations:

Here’s the revised version of the lede:

WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

Here’s the original:

WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

The original pinpoints Hillary as the target of the criminal investigation.

The NYT revision softens the implications of the investigation as mishandling of sensitive government information.

Wow!

Even the liberal blog, Daily Koz, commented on the obvious difference on Twitter:

“Clinton mishandled” & “mishandled in connection” w/ Clinton’s email acct= huge. huge difference

Yep, the original lede points the target of the investigation directly at Hillary.

The leading candidate a target of a criminal investigation…

A criminal investigation involving national security information…

Hold on here.

Before we hand this woman the keys to The White House…

Let’s get some answers.
