Friends of Hillary

The Times Union’s Capital Confidential blog is at times a pretty friendly place for Dems. But we’re scratching our heads at exactly how newsworthy it is for the blog to post the entire invitation for an upcoming Hillary Clinton political fundraiser.

It’s kind of sad to see journalists reduced to star-struck fans. At least pretend you are objective. What’s next, links to a Hillary fan club site?

The space taken up by the May 11 posting on the blog would probably have been better used if the TU had asked Hillary where the 200,000 jobs she promised in her 2000 campaign were. And the TU should maybe ask if their recent drop in circulation is because of junk like the Hillary posting. C’mon TU, you can do better.
