Skip to comments."The Truth About Hillary," One Year Later
Posted on 06/27/2006 7:12:55 PM PDT by V.Foster
Veteran journalist Ed Klein, a former editor of the New York Times Sunday Magazine, caught a lot of mainstream media grief last summer when he unleashed The Truth About Hillary, his blunt and deliberately one-sided trashing of the politics and personality of Hillary Clinton. Despite the bad press it got from the liberal media -- including 13 stories on Klein in the New York Times -- the book sold more than 250,000 copies. Klein says he wasn't sued by anyone and stands by everything he wrote. Now out in paperback, the book contains a new introduction that explains how conservative talk shows, bloggers and places like Newsmax.com made him a bestseller. I talked to Klein June 20 by phone from his office in New York City.
Q: What have you learned about Hillary Clinton since your book came out?
A: That she remains consistent and has been consistent since she was 8-years-old. She developed a grandiose idea of her own self-importance and has never been shaken in that conviction throughout her years in politics.
Q: What have you learned about the mainstream media since your book came out?
A: The mainstream media, in the year since my hardcover edition came out, has fallen slightly out of love with Hillary because of her backing of the war in Iraq. And the vehemence with which they once supported her is no longer as evident. It would be no exaggeration to say that the mainstream media and the base of the Democratic Party is now actively looking for another candidate to back in 2008.
Q: So you are predicting Hillary wont be the automatic nominee we been thinking shell be?
A: I think Hillary ...

The truth about Illary is she is a Lesbo who allows her Hubby to make a FOOL out of her daily!
Thank GOD for Dem Women, else you couldn't go out and get laid by someone worth getting laid with and not having to make excuses why you got long womanly hair on your shirt and lip stick on your collar.
I love LIEberalism!~}
"I think a lot of what I wrote about Hillary that she is untrustworthy, that she is a liar, that she is a sham, all of those things for which I was attacked by so many people have now become clearer, to everyone, even to some people left-of-center, who have realized that Hillary does not have any principles but shes only got her career in mind; that shell say or do anything to get elected president. And her posing as a God-fearing moderate who is against flag burning and in favor of Mom and apple pie doesnt fool many people any longer."
Wow, spending years writing about HRC, and now Couric--I don't envy this guy's gig.
He's certainly unafraid of people who have printing presses right at their fingertips, huh...
He seems pretty fearless in general. I've got to say that he especially appears eager to do battle with sacred cows, which is very interesting.
I heard him in interviews last year and was very, very impressed.

Was he a liberal who saw the light? He certainly couldn't get his old job back now!
Everything in it is gossip -- distractions from larger issues that would slaughter Hillary's chances if they ever come up during her candidacy.
If you must ask, then do consider voting for her.
Heh. When he writes stuff like I quoted in #3, I don't think he is on her side.
Huh. Never would. But I just wondered if there was something new. I disagree profoundly enough on her basic philosophy that I wouldn't vote for her if she was a saint.
That said, did you read the book, or hear any interviews? It seemed to me that certain things he brought up there profoundly effect her basic philosophy and world view.
In any case, no problem. I thought you had something specific you were hoping to share. I misread your intent.
Have a good evening.
I agree. Those are character traits that go further than dispelling rumors about one's behavior.
I don't think Ed is on her side in any way, shape or form.
This part of the article surprised me about Peggy Noonan:
"I would call Chablis conservatives are people like John Podhoretz of the New York Post and Peggy Noonan, who are more concerned with how they are treated by their liberal friends than they are with their adherence to conservative principles."
Anyone have a different take on Peggy Noonan?
I think he's into "pain", if you get my meaning. If you get my drift....
In the final analysis what matters is winning in 2008, and the party insiders will probably see her as the best bet. Particularly those who remember Vince Foster and Ron Brown.
I read the book and it is good. One of the more interesting points IMHO, was that Wellesley College has never released any copies of Hillary's Thesis. What the heck is in that Thesis? It must be some radical left-wing rant that would totally blow the "image" she has tried to cultivate over the years.
