A story about the truth

A story today in the Star-Telegram [Ft. Worth TX] about two dozen of Clinton’s volunteer fundraisers who collected at least $100,000 have ties to Wall Street while federal lobbyists collected more than $2 million for her campaign.

The article points out that Clinton has attempted to cast herself as a crusader for economically struggling Americans, but sources of her contributions to her presidential campaign could undermine that.

I believe the story is really about the failure of the mainstream media to jump on this kind of a story. In particular this story given that this same media has decried the power of money in modern day politics. This story was on page 11 not on the front page, as you would expect. It seems the press wants to orchestrate stories to achieve the political objectives they, the press thinks is best for the country.
