During the “Inside Politics” segment of CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday, moderator and network political analyst John King scoffed at the pushback from the Clintons over their coverage by The New York Times, which was detailed in a story by the Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman on Wednesday.
“One of my favorite items this morning is quoted in Playbook from Politico,” King said. “It’s a Washington Free Beacon story, where they say her staff recently met with the New York Times—Jonathan you know a little something about that newspaper—and said that they griped about the paper’s coverage arguing that Clinton has left public office and should not be subjected to such harsh scrutiny? What planet do they live on?”
“She’s writing a book, she’s giving paid speeches, she’s out there every day, they want these stories, she’s even making clear she wanted a tougher deal when it came to Bowe Bergdahl and then they say, ‘oh don’t be so harsh in your coverage’?” he added.
