Citizen Clinton Speaks Out: Former President Raises Cain – Almost

By Michael Collins

Former President Clinton spoke to the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies on June 17, 2006. He gave the keynote address which covered a number of topics. He even provided his answer to “the fundamental nature of the 21st century” – “interdependence.”

During the question and answer portion of the speech, an audience member made an inquiry about election fraud. Clinton’s response might have gained front page status or at least editorial page controversy if the United States had a function media. It does not.

Audience member to Clinton: Talking about elections, Robert Kennedy Jr. just wrote an article in Rolling Stone claiming the Bush Administration stole the last election. Do you think it was, and how can we guard against something like that going on in the future?

President Clinton: I must say I read Robert Kennedy’s article in Rolling Stone and I think all of you should if you haven’t.

  • “Clinton Gets No Coverage” — when does that happen? Only when he’s not singing the corporate manifesto. A moment of candor is usually red meat for the press but not this time. Nice work White House press corps (NYT, LAT, etc etc)
