Busted: NYT, WashPo Reporters Wanted to Spike Clinton-Lynch Story

We’re shocked — SHOCKED — to report that an email thread produced by the Center for Law and Justice reveals what we should have all assumed about the leftist bias of the nation’s two leading papers.

Whilst they spill gallons of ink covering scandals, collusions and controversies concerning President Trump, they did their best to spike the revelation that Bill Clinton just ‘happened to bump into’ Loretta Lynch on the tarmac as she was boarding a plane last year.

But they promised they absolutely never talked about how to aid Hillary’s campaign as it was beleaguered by the FBI’s email server scandal.

Reporters both for the NY Times and Washington Post admitted that they were pursuing the story reluctantly only because it was their job but hoped it would just die. Shocked.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Reporters with the Washington Post and New York Times were apparently less than enthusiastic about covering the controversial private meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton just months ahead of the 2016 election.

The non-profit American Center for Law and Justice published emails Friday that showed reporters asking Department of Justice officials for details on the meeting.

Mark Landler, a reporter for the Times, is seen in one June 30 email reaching out to a DOJ official to say he’s “been pressed into service to write about the questions being raised” by the meeting.

Matt Zapotosky with the Post emailed a DOJ official the same day after several other emails to say that his editors “are still pretty interested” in the story but that he wanted to “put it to rest.”

Lynch and Clinton had met on the tarmac in Phoenix to discuss “primarily social” matters, according to public comments Lynch made after the meeting.
