The Definitive History of the Clinton Years,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Hunting of the President: The Ten-Year Campaign to Destroy Bill and Hillary Clinton (Paperback)
This book not only sets out the truth about Bill Clinton's time in office, it makes monkeys out of several "respected journalists" by exposing the lies and half-truths they willingly promoted on behalf of Clinton's GOP enemies.
For one example: James Stewart wrote an entire book, Blood Sport, which revolved around his claim that Hillary Clinton was a crook because she failed to sign a certain one-page document. However, as Conason and Lyons report, the document in question was a two-page document, and, had Stewart bothered to turn it over, he would have found Hillary's signature as plain as day.
For another: Conason and Lyons show exactly how, and why, the mainstream media rushed to do the Republican Party's bidding. The slimiest, most-thinly-sourced stories were fair game, so long as they were anti-Clinton. Contrast this with the gentle treatment the US media have given George W. Bush since Day One.
Highly, highly recommended. You cannot understand what has happened to America without first reading this book.
