After Ed Klein Gives This Interview, Puff-Piece Citing ‘A Source’ Defends Hillary

Ed Klein Hillary Clinton split

It would matter little if the newest and provocative book from Ed Klein, Blood Fued, was the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Regardless, as we will see more in the future, the media cannot help but jump when the Clinton’s demand it.

Appearing on “Hannity” last night to discuss his new book, Klein discussed the details of the less-than friendly relationship between the Clintons and the Obamas. Hannity and Klein also talked about Hillary’s monumental, or “epic book failure” despite no small measure of free advertising from the so-called Free Press.

Now, Business Insider ran to Hillary’s rescue with a puff-piece citing one “source close to the Clintons,” who “fired back with a scathing, lengthy email to Business Insider blasting Klein as a pathological liar.”

“This might sound hyperbolic, but there is no bigger liar in the entire world,” Hunter Walker, author of the piece claims the source said of Klein. “Lying isn’t even the word for it. It’s some kind of sickness where every single thing you write is fabricated. Every. Single. Thing. I mean, even the photos in his book were found to be altered.”

Walker goes on to trash Klein, who was an editor at both Newsweek and the New York Times Magazine, as well as a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. He points to other supposedly “debunking” and “fact-checking” challenges to Klein’s past works, including his 2005 book, The Truth About Hillary, and The Amateur. Of course, those so-called fact-checkers are also liberal, Hillary acolytes.

To be fair, some of Klein’s work requires a bit of faith, or believing Klein is credible enough to believe his sources are telling the truth. However, Walker is hypocritically asking readers to disbelieve Klein’s reporting, which is based upon multiple sources, because of an invisible email from his one source. The liberally-bias media has obviously forgotten that journalistic standards and ethics require more than one source, or some other form of collaboration.

It is no secret the Clintons do not like the Obamas, and visa versa. With or without Klein’s reporting, the Beltway is well-aware that Bill Clinton will never forgive Obama for pulling the race card on him during the South Carolina Democratic primary, and only agreed to use his popularity with the American people to get Obama re-elected at the Democratic National Convention in return for a Hillary 2016 coronation. Several people close to Bill Clinton said he was voting for Mitt Romney in 2012, the  man “Bubba” claimed had a “stellar resume” worthy of presidential qualifications.

Unlike, an amateur.

The problem is that Klein exposed Obama’s plan to stab the Clintons in the back, again. President Obama is reportedly planning on backing junior Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren in 2016. Ironically, Warren was caught on tape mimicking the same “you didn’t build that” rhetoric of redistribution that landed Obama in hot water. So, it is understandable and believable the Clintons would want Klein’s new book discredited, because if Obama is reneging on their deal, then it once-again shows they have been naive to trust a dishonest amateur.
