The Clintons Kill Negative GQ Story


Are the Clintons killing stories that portray them in an unfavorable light as the campaign for President heats up? Ben Smith of Politico writes that GQ spiked a piece on the Clintons by Atlantic staff writer Josh Green. Apparently the Clinton campaign staff threatened the men’s magazine with a loss of access to the former President, who is slated to appear on the December cover:

”’I don’t really get into the inner workings of the magazine, but I can tell you that yes, we did kill a Hillary piece. We kill pieces all the time for a variety of reasons,’ Nelson said in an e-mail to Politico.”

Charmed, I’m, sure.
