Oh well, at least Tulsi got some much need airtime:

On Friday, the NYT did a piece about a podcast Secretary Clinton did with David Plouffe. They incorrectly quoted her saying that the "Russians" were "grooming" a candidate running in the Democratic primary. They rightfully fixed it to reflect that she was taking about the GOP.

For being thought of as a 'liberal' publication, the NYT has never treated Hillary all that well.

"They rightfully fixed it to reflect that she was taking about the GOP."

So she didn't say Tulsi was being groomed by the Russians, she said the real truth. It's the whole GOP who the Russians are grooming. The Republican Party is the party of traitors. And every one of you who defends them are too. Look what Trump just did in Syria, he made Russia the most powerful nation in the region on purpose, he's stupid but he's not that stupid. He acted on orders from Putin, if you still support him they you knowingly support a traitor to his nation.

NYT admits they misquoted Clinton regarding Gabbard

Gal

Here you said Tulsi was a useful idiot and linked to a hacktastic NBC News smear on Tulsi ...

I should have said useful idiots rather than Russian assets, and again especially Stein. Like Vladimir Putin cares about the Green movement in the USA. Sure, Jan. I mean Jill. But he certainly appreciates all of Tulsi's pro-Assad propaganda.

Very much so:

Russia's propaganda machine discovers 2020 Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard

Experts who track websites and social media linked to Russia have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.

Hillary said what she said -- and Hillary's media friendly lackeys reported Hillary's words in the manner Hillary wanted, which was Tulsi was a Russian asset.

Why can't you see how these people are lying to you and trying to manipulate you?

To you, you vote liberal and Democrat, but to the other half of the country who sees Democrats twisting themselves into ridiculous knots defending Hillary's lies -- all this BS reinforces why people vote for Trump.

It was this sort of Clinonese-triangulation brand of politics for over 3 decades that gave America a total lying douchebag like Donald Trump as president. Now that Democrat friendly media is now trying to give Hillary cover because of the blowback against Hillary smearing Tulsi is proof of that.

Hillary or the DNC must have hit the panic button since this isn't going away, called Dean Baquet and ordered that they change her clear wording.

Here is the exact quote from Hillary: "I'm not making any predictions, but I think they've got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She's the favorite of the Russians."

Clink on the video link in this CNN article to hear Hillary clearly saying "the Russians" and then doubling down and saying the same thing about Jill Stein. It's not even close.

Pathetic how far The Grey Lady (and Gal, for buying into their BS without going back to listen to the audio) has fallen.

It appears that PinchALoaf is undergoing the same transformation that nullifidian went through a few years back.

Hans,

Pinchaloaf hasn't changed his political views. He still advocates for the same policies he always has.

Nulli's outlook has changed. About a year ago you made that argument and I said you were wrong. Well, you were right and I was wrong about you being wrong.

Good to see you posting again.

If you like a creepy weirdo who posts nothing but archived ancient history and plonk counts. But I have him plonked so I don't really care. Enjoy his trolling.

Says the dope who hasn't listened to her actual audio but like a good lemming just believes the Headline.

#7 I'm having a hard time lining this up. Even in the corrected article, NYT states:
"Mr. Merrill said late Friday evening that Mrs. Clinton's initial "grooming" claim had referred to Republicans, not Russia, as initially reported. Mrs. Clinton then brought up Russia in the podcast interview, saying Ms. Gabbard was the Kremlin's preferred candidate."
www.nytimes.com

So was the corrected piece based on something other than your video?

In either case, i think Hillary is more likely right than wrong about this. She accused Trump of being a Russian puppet in 2016 and most people laughed at her. She was right then too.

No, they are just trying to spin it so that Hillary doesn't look as bad as she initially did, and the NYT is toeing the line like the good little mouthpieces they have become. Not even WashPo has run with this "correction" and most commentators have bashed the NYT for blithely accepting Mrs. Clinton's mouthpiece, Nick Merrill's rather clumsy attempt to rescue his boss.

I thought my post might have made them aware, to me it was obvious even to a partisan what the NYT was doing.

But here we are, trying to explain it to them. You have way more patience than I.
