“Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer, Harper Collins forced to make “significant revisions” to book.
The Clintons always come out ahead…no matter how hard their critics try. “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer has egg all over his face after having to make “significant revisions” to correct inaccurate passages in the Kindle version of the book. The book is published by Harper Collins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. So much for impartiality.
Politico: Schweizer corrected “seven or eight” passages that were revealed to be inaccurate after the book was released, according to publisher HarperCollins.
Among them, Schweizer notes in the original version of the book that TD Bank, a major shareholder in the Keystone XL Pipeline, paid Bill Clinton for speeches and then said it would “begin selling its $1.6 billion worth of shares in the massive but potentially still-born [sic] Keystone XL crude pipeline project” after Hillary Clinton left office. But as his source on the sale of TD Bank’s shares, Schweizer used a press release that was revealed to be fake in 2013.
That passage has been removed from the most recent Kindle version of the book.
Well, I am pretty sure there are many, many more inaccuracies in Peter Schweizer’s book, which Republicans are quoting in a feeding frenzy against Bill and Hillary Clinton. According to Media Matters, there are over 20 inaccuracies in the book. They compiled a list of factual errors caught by PolitiFact, ABC News, MSNBC, Politico, Slate, BuzzFeed, Newsweek and ThinkProgress.
The Republicans are left with nothing more than conspiracy theories about the Clintons. That’s the same mindset behind the Barack Obama conspiracy theories Donald Trump and the birther wingnuts came up with. Where did that get them? Obama won by a landslide twice. The Republicans are hard learners.
