Keeping score on Clinton

Posted By on Fri, Jan 1, 2010 at 7:17 PM

The Associated Press doesn't let a minute elapse without recording the maximum information about contributors to the Clinton Foundation, fighting AIDS, poverty and for a better environment, all over the world. Fair enough. Read and learn who supports those activities.

Does the world's largest newsgathering organization devote the same close attention to the Bush libraries, I and II, to Richard Mellon Scaife, to the special interest lobbies that oppose health care, union organizing, clean air, etc.

I think you know the answer.

Clinton rules.

PS -- Reader J. Jack Flash is correct and I should have noted that the reporting here is merely a pro forma account of a list released as part of the agreement between the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton on her appointment as secretary of state. I still believe there's been a higher degree of vigor in seeking disclosure of Clinton-related finances and that vigor helped produce this agreement. Nothing wrong with that. But there are other areas worthy of more illumination, too
