This comes to you from CSPAN

I admit to getting on CSPAN sort of late in the book discussion, but we all can start this from top down. Later in June, CSPAN has plans to bring the author Peter Schweizer for a very in depth examination of the book.

Democrats seem to object to this book for a strange reason since they have not read the book.

This is the CSPAN summary.

MAY 8, 2015

Book Discussion on Clinton Cash

Peter Schweizer talked about his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How Foreign Governments and Businesses Made Bill and Hillary Clinton Rich, in which he discusses Bill and Hillary Clinton’s personal finances. He also spoke about the book’s post-publication reception and responded to viewer questions and comments. He spoke via video link from Tallahassee, Florida.

I don't know about that, but it's riddled with errors. Which, considering the author, is no great shock.

Twenty-Plus Errors, Fabrications, And Distortions In Peter Schweizer's Clinton Cash (http://mediamatters.org/research/2015/04/30/twenty-plus-errors-fabrications-and-distortions/203480)


There Are Over Twenty Reasons Not To Believe Clinton Cash. A Media Matters analysis of the book found numerous errors, fabrications, and distortions. Media outlets tore apart Schweizer's allegation that Hillary Clinton played a "central role" in approving a Russian uranium deal for Clinton Foundation donors. He made multiple errors in a section alleging Bill Clinton's speaking fees influenced State Department grants in Haiti. He cited as fact a press release that was revealed as a hoax years before. He took a former U.S. ambassador's words "badly out of context," drawing condemnation from the individual. He erred in his conspiracy about Hillary Clinton's vote on an India nuclear deal. He excluded multiple pieces of exculpatory evidence that undermine his claims. He hypocritically attacked the Clintons for engaging in the same behavior that Schweizer's former boss, George W. Bush, did. And he alleged Clinton conspiracies that, in the words of third parties who reviewed his work, have "no evidence," are "circumstantial," and have "no smoking gun."

Don't tell me you believe Media Matters....

I seem to have dropped off their mailing list, but when I kept getting reports and checking them out, it was Media Matters doing the spin jobs.

The Author of Clinton Cash believes that The Clinton Foundation needs to be investigated.

What is so wrong with checking it out to verify what happens there?

According to Wikipedia he was.

What does that have to do with the Clinton collection machine that saw 9 of their largest contributors cash in with Uranium deals?

The interesting thing too, about Schweizer is he also has gone after insider trading by congress.

He's pretty partisan. He's written books about why conservatives are better. Now we're supposed to believe he has no agenda and will write an honest book. Yeah, sure.

That anyone would believe Schweizer if he wrote that fire is hot is hard to believe. As a journalist, he's a hack. He's dishonest, an inveterate liar, and a hypocrite.

Wow, and you have not yet read the book.

I do my best not to judge books unless I actually read the book.

You know very well that merely creating a list as you did proves nothing you said is correct nor that CSPAN is wrong.

My hunch is you still have not watched the CSPAN video to see what the author actually did say.

Not worth what? Canada is your closest ally and we share the world's biggest trading partnership and border.

Do you dislike Canada because of me?

And yet, you judged the MediaMatters article without reading it. Double standard much, sir?

I haven't read the book, nor am I planning to, considering who wrote it. My opinion of Schweizer isn't based on the book, but on his history as a "journalist". Since he's already admitted on national TV to having left out information, so as to make Hillary look worse, it doesn't really matter what he says now. Like his statement on CSPAN that the Clinton Foundation only gives 10% of its money to other charities, keeping 90% for itself. Which is technically true, and an excellent example of lying with statistics. The Clinton Foundation does indeed give just 10% of its money to other charities. But it spends 70% of its money directly on helping people, using just 20% for administrative costs. As Fox News correspondent Eric Shawn reported on the May 6 edition of The O'Reilly Factor.

So, on CSPAN today, Schweizer was twisting the truth to support a partisan position. Using a statistical lie that Fox News called "incredibly misleading."

You might want to consider that, if a Fox News correspondent is calling something bad Schweizer said about Hillary "incredibly misleading", you might want to take anything Schweizer says with about 30 pounds of salt.

No no no.

He deals with that claim in the video.

I told you, i believe that I too was on Media matters list so I read many of their articles. Can't stand such propaganda.

He is asking for her to be investigated and says he has not claimed she is proven guilty.
