On March 24th Senator Clinton met with Pittsburgh Trib Reporters and the owner of the Trib, the “fair and balanced” Richard Mellon Scaife. In case that sentence doesn’t sound absurd to you… Scaife (through several alias organizations) funded the dredging up of whitewater during Bill’s presidency.
The story doesn’t end there though… RMS (as his friends should call him) wrote a little editorial this morning in which he PRAISED Hillary. WHAT? He said she showed courage by showing up in spite of the negative press from the Trib. He teased toward the end that he’d consider having his paper endorse her for the April 22nd primary, but then decided he wanted to hear Obama first.
