thanks to the generally professional and excellent andrea bernstein, i'm glad she is back, but Brian, that was a nasty note to slip in at the end. Despite trying to sound sly and joky, you couldn't resist mentioning the scandalous and scurrilous interest—the same shown by trolls like Brian Ross of ABC and Arianna— in Hillary's whereabouts during certain moments. Is that why the records were released? Is that behind your show's interest in them? I am guessing not.
Save us from the tabloid gutter, please. Strategic prurience is one of the media's '7 deadly sins.'

Hi Brian and Andrea. Hillary claimed in the democratic debate last March that she was against NAFTA from the beginning.

Not really that nuanced.

what purpose does this serve. Most of the important things that were done by Ms Clinton were kept secret and would be the same for Mr.Obama as it is for Mr.Bush or any other person who is holding an office of power.
These kinds of shenanigans are just hog wash to distract people into looking into stuff that has real value.
Ask a CEO where they were when their stock was falling or a racket was being hatched or is being uncovered, you will get the same no comment answer.
Only the workers are always required to provide the answers thats the way things are.

Shlomo Ben-Ali was interesting. Now we once again plummet in to the world of Andrea Burnstein salivating over Hillary. Have you people no shame. Political director!! You need to hire more professional people.

The problem with Andrea Bernstein and this "journalism" project is that it's been clear forever that Bernstein supports Hillary Clinton. Notice: She has never mentioned that a FOIA lawsuit was required to get Clinton to release these 11,000 pages in the first place .....

Hillary was methodical, workaholic and serious. Stop the presses.
