On March 4, 2007, at the 42nd Anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Selma, Alabama, Mrs. Clinton recounted how as a young girl she had the great privilege of hearing Dr. Martin Luther King speak in Chicago: The year was 1963, Clinton said in her speech. My youth minister from our church took a few of us down on a cold January night to hear someone that we had read about, we had watched on television, we had seen with our own eyes from a distance, this phenomenon known as Dr. King.
At Selma, Hillary said she had seen MLK in 1963, so she would have been 15 or 16 at that time. But authors Don Van Natta, Jr. and Jeff Gerth, (Her Way, 2007) seem to think that Hillary was then 17, which would have put her at a King speech in late 1964 or 1965. A Washington Post article a few weeks ago had Hillary at an MLK speech on a Sunday night in 1962. Carl Bernstein, the former WaPo writer in his book A Woman In Charge, says Hillary saw King in the the fall of 1961 (Hillary would have been 14 at that time). And the Boston Globe also recently had Clinton with King in the spring 1962.
So when was it? Was Hillary at Kings speech on that cold night in January 1963, or the spring of 1962. Was it 1965 or the fall of 1961?
Why cant these journalists get their facts straight? Dont they read each others accounts? Why hasnt the media looked into these details, which are strikingly different in each account?

Her lips move she lies it is not a surprise
Can you fix?
A better question than “When did Hillary see Martin?” is “Did she ever see him at all?”
Thanks for pointing out the propagandists propping up the liar.
A twenty-six-year-old Methodist youth minister named Donald
Jones arrived at First Methodist Church in Park Ridge. Jones was tall, had a blond crew cut, and drove a 1959 fire-engine red Impala convertible. More than a few young girls had crushes on him.
It would be interesting to see when and where MLK visited Chicago. Should be easy for an MLK biographer to catalog.
I figger about the time that Bill Clinton saw all them churches burning in Arkansas.
If Hillary was seeing Dean Martin, she probably was in Vegas, not Selma.
Who gives a damn? She’d be no less a communist.
After seeing the MSM fuss over Mitt Romneys allegedly false recollection that his father had marched with Dr. King, I took to the internet to see how Mrs. Clintons claim would stand up to a not- so-rigorous Google and Lexis-Nexis search. I really wanted to see how much, if any, the MSM had researched the Clinton claim with nearly as much alacrity as they had the Romney claim.
Typical Clinton tactic-treating black Americans like fools too stupid to understanding they are being played for fools.
But it is striking how these mainstream 'journalists' can't seem to agree on the basic details of this story.
So Hillary was in Selma liestening to MLK and Bubba was in Arkansas watching the KKK burn churches?
Yet another Clintoon lie.
Hmmm. Did anyone ask the Hildabeast what this “Martin” looked like?
