Broadcast outlets can get interviews with President Clinton. But hey, stick around to moderate a Clinton Global Initiative panel discussion, okay?
THE WASHINGTON POST REPORT:
CNN anchor and chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper this week entered the news cycle obliquely. An article in USA Today noted some turbulence over just how to describe his role in the June 8-10 Clinton Global Initiative America Meeting in Denver. Was he going to be a “speaker” at the event, or something else?
CNN and the Clinton Foundation appear to be going back and forth on the matter, as Breitbart’s John Nolte has reported.
Neither USA Today nor Breitbart would have plowed such interest into this matter a year ago, back when the Clinton Foundation was an aggressive global charity with a bipartisan roster of supporters. After Hillary Clinton ramped up and then announced a 2016 presidential bid, the Clinton Foundation has turned into something different: An aggressive global charity with a bipartisan roster of supporters — and whose every move is suspect. Author Peter Schweizer, the New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News, among others, have combed the foundation’s records in search of overlaps with Clinton’s dealings as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. “We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” writes Schweizer in “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.”
