Opinion: Clinton's Remarks on 2004 Election Deserved More Coverage

Michael Collins at "Scoop" Independent News makes much of Bill Clinton using the adjective "persuasive" to describe Robert Kennedy Jr.'s Rolling Stone article on fraud in the 2004 election. Clinton addressed the subject during the question-and-answer session following his keynote speech at the AAN Convention on Saturday, June 17. "Clinton’s response might have gained front page status or at least editorial page controversy if the United States had a function [sic] media. It does not," Collins writes. He notes that Clinton would have set off a "fire storm by endorsing the argument that 2004 was stolen," but he argues that "regardless of what was not said, Clinton said enough to cause a major controversy."
