"Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman."
-- Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis, 1914Matt Drudge has been America's city editor for almost two decades, since he shattered the media's cone of silence over the Monica Lewinsky case, in which the president committed perjury in a civil suit.
Drudge helps set the news agenda simply by linking essential stories. Drudge has this season gone after questions about Hillary's health -- from her coughing spells, to her appearance of having seizures, and to her inability to negotiate a flight of stairs.
Is she healthy enough to serve four years as president?
Considering the mediocrity of the man she chose as a running mate, do we really want to gamble on her health?
From Drudge's latest link:
As the presidential campaign enters its final stages, probing questions have emerged about the health condition of Hillary Clinton.
Hillary' bizarre, erratic behavior on the campaign trail (culminating with last week's perplexing "short-circuit" comment) has left many wondering whether she is seriously ill. Hillary has at multiple times had convulsions that appear to be seizures on camera, including a series of seemingly inexplicable coughing fits.
A frequently referenced video, shown below, alleging that Hillary may have seizure-like conditions emerged several weeks ago and has so far failed to lead to a conclusive explanation whether Hillary may have ongoing health problems and potential residual aftereffects from a blood clot in her brain sustained three years ago.That link is to Zero Hedge as the mainstreamers once again ignores the news in favor of media-manufactured nontroversies about Trump.
You are being played, America.
The national media is populated by slow learners, who are divorced from their audience. Lewinsky should have forced them to clean up their act, as should have Rathergate. But just like Hillary, many national news editors believe they are invulnerable to critics. Matt Drudge proved them wrong in 1998. We shall see in November if this happens again.
