WTF MSM!? Why is Bill Clinton a bad guy all of a sudden?

Conservative Review

Curious timing …

Bubba’s a bad guy … It started as a trickle over the past few days and is building into a crescendo. The recasting of Bill Clinton — by the Left — into a pariah has begun. Take, for example, this piece by Caitlin Flanagan in The Atlantic. Flanagan says the feminist movement was wrong to protect Bill Clinton from the avalanche of accusations of sexual misconduct, assault, and even rape. The author casts this as a part of the #metoo movement. But, really, why did it take so long?

It was the vast right-wing conspiracy’s fault … Folks at the New York Times are also starting to turn on President Clinton. In today’s paper, New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg says that she now believes Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation that Clinton raped her. But it’s not enough for her to come to that conclusion on her own; no, she needs to blame “right wing disinformation” for her own and others’ reluctance. The NYT Opinion pages highlighted this on Twitter. If it wasn’t for Matt Drudge, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Fox News, and others telling the truth during the 1990s, well, I would have believed the truth, seems to be her argument. Typical.

Why now? … The rash of articles and opinion pieces slaying Clinton are curiously timed. If I were a cynical man, I’d even say they seem curiously coordinated. Heck, I am cynical, and that’s what I am saying. It’s as if the “journolist” list-serv email group many reporters and opinion writers were caught being a part of never ended. Erick Erickson made a prescient point this morning: “Within a year, it will be conventional wisdom that Democrats repudiated Bill Clinton and conservatives stood with Roy Moore.”
