Seth Meyers, The Unfunny MSNBC Hack Who For Some Reason Was Accidentally Employed as a Comic on NBC, Decries the Bias of Peter Schweitzer, Defends Hillary

If you watch this video, which I think you should, just because you need to understand his whine to get the punchline ahead, you'll see that he makes several points about Hillary Clinton's cover-ups and conflicts of interest.

Sethie is here pretty much reading directly from bizarre ashen freak David Brock's Media Matters' spin, and from Hillary's own press release, which are pretty much the same things, as David Brock runs Hillary's PAC.

So, all Sethie wants to talk about is the messenger here, Peter Schweitzer, who wrote the book Clinton Cash.

Here's Sethie's reporting:

1. Peter Schweitzer once wrote a book knocking liberals.

2. Peter Schweitzer has worked with conservatives.

3. Hillary Clinton hasn't been proven, by audiotape or direct witness testimony, to have changed government policy based on donations to her. (All we have is a lot of money flowing to her, and then decisions favorable to those donating that money being made by her -- the exact sort of indirect, circumstantial evidence which currently has former Governor Bob McDonnell in prison.)

4. Peter Scheweitzer really should have told people about all his biases.

5. Peter Schweitzer's reporting cannot be believed because he failed to disclose his political leanings.

6. The New York Times, apparently, does not exist, because Sethie won't talk about them.

7. It's all about why you shouldn't believe this Vast Right Wing Conspirator Peter Schweitzer and his failure to disclose his political bias.

In sum, Seth Meyers is a huge defender of the Clinton Global Initiative, and he, unlike the thought criminal Peter Schweitzer, comes by his conclusions honestly, and without any pre-existing bias at all.

So, that said:


I guess Little Sethie just kinda forgot to disclose his own bias in this matter.

I usually wouldn't think it was worth noting that an unfunny tv clown was a huge, bought-and-paid for Hillary stooge, but given that his entire defense of the Clinton Foundation rests on the claim that Peter Schweitzer is biased and failed to disclose his political leanings--

shouldn't the unfunny tv clown have disclosed, in this situation at least, that he got paid a stack of that sweet sweet Clinton Uranium Money to speak at the Clinton Global Initiative for Delivering Uranium to Russia?
