Free Beacon EXPOSES Another Shady Clinton Donation, New York Times Scurries to Buzzfeed for Refuge

The Free Beacon is going into beastmode with their revelations on the shady practices of the Clintons, and this time they forced the New York Times to scurry away like a cockroach to Politico and then to Buzzfeed rather than comment on their crooked million dollar exchange.

From Alana Goodman at the Beacon:

A little-known private foundation controlled by Bill and Hillary Clinton donated $100,000 to the New York Times’ charitable fund in 2008, the same year the newspaper’s editorial page endorsed Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary, according to tax documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Clinton Family Foundation, a separate entity from the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, has been the family’s vehicle for personal charitable giving since 2001.

It is funded directly by the Clintons and distributes more than $1 million a year to civic and educational causes.

The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund is a charity affiliated with the newspaper that assists underprivileged New Yorkers. It is run by members of the New York Times Company’s board of directors and senior executives.

The Times’ editorial board endorsed Clinton against Democratic challengers John Edwards and Barack Obama on January 25, 2008, writing that she was “more qualified, right now, to be president.”

BOOM!! When asked for a comment, the New York Times scuttled off to Politico, just like ABC News did during the Stephanopoulos scandal:

But that “no further comment” about the date of the donation was short-lived. Again they found another friendly outlet to talk to rather than acknowledge the good work at the Beacon:

So why did they try to obscure this information from the Free Beacon? And why do they have to be so scummy about it?

Rat bastards.

    It’s really nice when you don’t expect much from the NY Times. They’ve already proven themselves to be little more than the media arm of the Democratic Party so, once you realize that, nothing surprises you and you’re never disappointed in them.

  • Tango Sierra

    An arm of the Demorat Party.

  • Howard Roark

    Perhaps the Pulitzer committee will award another prize to the NY Times for their coverage of the high ethical standards of Team Grandma’s campaign

  • Open-minded

    They have to run to a friendly forum in order to maximize their ability to spin it as “nothing to see here – move along.”

    If they actually gave mention to the Washington Free Beacon, more people would be likely to go to the WFB’s site – and when that happens, people will see the truth, and the NYT will dwindle further.

    Before the Legacy Media went financially bankrupt, they went ethically and morally bankrupt.

  • klgmac

    They would be as deserving as Obama was in receiving his Nobel Peace Prize eh? The elites sure live in a big circle jerk, don’t they?

  • George Pepper

    Leftism is immoral, ergo all of its adherents act immorally. As it was in the beginning, yadda, yadda, yadda.

  • gunsmithkat

    The NY Slimes just living up to its name. Or should that be DOWN to its name?

  • Jim Nelson

    I think the Walter Duranty Prize would be more appropriate.

  • Esau’s Message

    Journalistic ethics are for all us losers on the Right. The NYT says to the entire world, “f*ck you, we do what we want!” The WFB just needs to keep digging and exposing the sordid, tawdry, rotten underbelly of our political class. It’s not gonna get any love from the NYT or any other card-carrying member of the elite. Right, Center, Conservative, Libertarian bloggers (especially media critic bloggers) should universally slam the NYT and the cooperating outlets for their corruption and unethical behavior. Use every social media outlet. Wolf Pack the B@$+@rds!
