Longtime Clinton adviser James Carville blasted media coverage of the Hillary Clinton campaign–and specifically the controversy over Clinton’s private email server–in an appearance today on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports.
Carville began by taking a shot at Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post and his story about a “full-scale Democratic freakout”: “You know this Mr. Brezos (sic) who’s running that sweat shop out there in Seattle. He needs to get to 15th St. where the Washington Post is and get this place in order. There’s nobody editing that newspaper,” said Carville, speaking about Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos who also owns the Washington Post.
“This is foolishness, I’m having to come out of my vacation to deal with this kind of stupidity…and Hillary’s going to be just fine,” Carville said.
Yesterday, Clinton was grilled about the server by Fox News correspondent Ed Henry, leading Mrs. Clinton to walk away from reporters.
“I’ve been dealing with this for 23 years now,” said Carville. “It’s mostly stupid media people talking to other stupid media people and making stuff up.”
