Evening Open Thread

If you can take one more story about Hillary's Convulsions -- and I know I personally can take a lot of them -- check out Larry O'Connor's post on how the Media Praetorian fell on their swords for Hillary, and wound up stabbing themselves right through the credibility glands.

When did the media finally begin to report the story? When they had a statement from the Clinton campaign:

[tweet from CNN]
Hillary Clinton leaves a 9/11 ceremony after feeling overheated, her campaign says http://cnn.it/2cvLzC6
11:13 AM - 11 Sep 2016
451 451 Retweets 474 474 likes
[end tweet]

You see, until the media had Clinton’s spin, it wasn’t a story.

But now we know that the “overheated” spin was, to be generous, not the complete story. To be factual, it was a lie.

The “overheated” excuse was delivered to a hungry and desperate mainstream media before any video of Mrs. Clinton collapsing was widely available. If the campaign knew the video existed, I doubt they would have trotted out the “overheated” story.

So pundits and reporters spent the next hour talking about how hot and humid it was in New York during the 9/11 ceremony. MSNBC even remarked that Clinton was wearing long sleeves so that must have exacerbated the heat for her.
