MSM Goes to bat for their girl

The MSM reveals their bias objective stance through Joe Klein:

I know this is old news, but this guy is shameless. The headline, with a photo of a three-quarters crazed Hillary, is HEALTH INSURANCE PROOF REQUIRED FOR WORK but the linked story says this:

At this point, we don't have anything punitive that we have proposed," the presidential candidate said in an interview with The Associated Press. "We're providing incentives and tax credits which we think will be very attractive to the vast majority of Americans."

She said she could envision a day when "you have to show proof to your employer that you're insured as a part of the job interview — like when your kid goes to school and has to show proof of vaccination," but said such details would be worked out through negotiations with Congress.
What Joe Klein forgot is that the MSM is also a disgrace...because they provide out of context quotes such as his own. What Clinton went on to say was
...she could envision a day when "you have to show proof to your employer that you're insured as a part of the job interview — like when your kid goes to school and has to show proof of vaccination," but said such details would be worked out through negotiations with Congress.
Which, of course, works just fine with Drudge's working headline.

So what is Klein really objecting to, Drudge's reporting or his politics?
How stupid does he think we are? Answer: Extremely dumbolic.

I'll have more about Clinton's health plan in this week's print column.
If you're going to call someone a disgrace to journalism you should at least use a word that's actually...you know...a word. In the dictionary.
