What is going here is disturbing. Integrity in our leaders is essential. Consider this.

On CNN’s Inside Politics, National Journal‘s Ron Fournier, a veteran Clinton chronicler from his days as a reporter covering Arkansas state politics, agreed with host John King, who covered Bill Clinton’s White House, that the Clintons think they can “do the minimal amount of disclosure” and then move forward because “they think it’s worked for us in the past and it will work again.”
Not so fast, said Fournier, who has written about the potential “pay-to-play” whispers surrounding the millions in foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation.
“What they don’t realize is the world has changed,” Fournier said. “In the 15 years since there was a Clinton in the Oval Office, we have this little thing called the Internet. It changed the media landscape. Back in the ’90s there were 12 gatekeepers, basically. If we decided not to print something at the Associated Press where you and I worked, people didn’t find out about it. Now there’s 300 million reporters and researchers. They can see through the spin. They can see through the lies. They can see the conflicts of interest.”
