TIME Honors Hillary Clinton's 'What Happened' As 'Top Non-Fiction Book' Of The Year

Excerpt:

 

Time magazine is already celebrating their Best of 2017, and their favorite "Non-Fiction" book of the year is....Hillary Clinton's campaign memoir What Happened. Time assistant managing editor Claire Howorth gushed, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history."

 

It came complete with buying instructions from Amazon, and Hillary Clinton quickly tweeted out how "honored" she was: "I loved writing this book, & I’m honored to be in such great company on this list!" Number two on the Time top ten was radical black writer Ta-Nehisi Coates reflecting on Obama during the Trump era in We Were Eight Years in Power.

 

It also included former Newsweek editor Tina Brown (a Clinton adorer from way back) for her new book The Vanity Fair Diaries, a book on evangelical Christians in politics by leftist Frances FitzGerald, as well as a volume on The Meaning of Michelle, over which Howorth oozed: "This anthology, edited by journalist and author Veronica Chambers, was published just days before the Obamas left the White House, but the essays within feel more relevant than ever. Contributors include Roxane Gay, Ava DuVernay, Hamilton star Tiffany Dufu, New York [City]’s First Lady Chirlane McCray and others, examining everything from Obama’s fashion to her marriage to her cultural impact as the first African-American First Lady."

First of all, they don't believe there is such a thing as journalistic objectivity, only competing narratives. Second, the MSM did a terrible job of covering the 2016 campaign. Why expect them to look closely at Hillary Clinton's account of that campaign? Next, rating books is inherently a matter of opinion so in rating Clinton's highly disingenuous memoir as the top nonfiction (froehlich214.gif) book of 2017, one could say they are entitled to do so as long as they don't consider this journalism. Since I have long since ceased to consider Time Magazine a news source, I don't care much one way or another what they think of "What Happened" or Ta-Neezy Coates's blacksplaining of Obama's record in office.

One answer? One?!?! She has about two dozen excuses and is all over the map with them, none of them include "I was a crappy candidate who screwed the pooch over and over and ignored important states." Ignored, hell, she called half the US population "deplorables." One answer, hoo boy, that's a knee slapper.

Trump knows how to make these idiots play fiddle for him, that's for sure, and every time they show their collective asses, a lot of the country hates them even more. The Left can't hate him any more than they do, and they will never vote for him anyway, but he's keeping his base focused and sowing doubt about media honesty in the independents, no matter what anyone polling them says.
