Hillary pneumonia diagnosis lie, Show me the proof, NYT liberal reporter Nicholas Confessore Twitter post source of Dr. Lisa Bardack statement?, New York Times article does not put pneumonia diagnosis in quotes, Confessore go to guy for Hillary Campaign?
“Here is one of the aspects of the alleged letter that bothered me the most:
“She is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.”
Dr. Bardack’s specialty is listed as Internal Medicine. I see no reference to psychology credentials. And even if she had that expertise, what would make her qualified to state “fit to serve as President of the United States.””…Citizen Wells
“The main stream media has been doing it’s best to hide the truth about Hillary Clinton’s rapidly deteriorating health, but it’s getting to be a harder and harder trick to continue to pull off. Just yesterday the Twitterverse lit up with photographs of her seemingly unable to make it up a flight of steps as seen here”…nowtheendbegins.com
“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells
The more I have looked since yesterday the more I smell a rat(s).
My “1984” Orwellian decoder ring works pretty well too.
Like many of you, when I read that Hillary Clinton was allegedly diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday and that allegedly was the reason for her collapse, it did not make sense. It did not pass the smell test.
As one of Citizen Wells long time commenters, who works in the medical field stated:
“Why, if diagnosed on Friday, was it not revealed until today? Why was she not sent to the hospital, given IV fluids and antibiotics and confined to bed rest for 10 days…the normal treatment for pneumonia.”
Regardless of what Dr. Lisa Bardack may or may not have said, the information came from the Hillary Campaign.
I spent much time searching for an original source including the AP, Washington Post and many other sites.
Zero Hedge quoted the site “The Week” which also quotes this page in one of their articles. A click on that link reveals:
“Uh oh – someone broke the page you’re looking for!
Please check back again soon.”
The New York Times provided some insight and Citizen Wells reported this earlier.
“But just after 5 p.m., a campaign official said Mrs. Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, had examined the candidate at her home in Chappaqua, and Dr. Bardack said in a statement that Mrs. Clinton was “rehydrated and recovering nicely.”
“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Bardack’s statement said, adding that on Friday morning, after a prolonged cough, Mrs. Clinton was given a diagnosis of pneumonia.
“She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule,” Dr. Bardack added. “At this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated.”
Dr. Bardack did not indicate what sort of pneumonia Mrs. Clinton had or elaborate on the nature of the examination last week, whether Mrs. Clinton had a fever today, or a host of other issues that could offer more precise insights about her condition.”
From this we learn:
The information comes from the Hillary Campaign.
The diagnosis of pneumonia is not in quotes as a direct quote of the doctor.
The Daily Wire quotes a tweet by liberal reporter of the Times Nick Confessore.
“Here’s her doctor’s statement released late Sunday afternoon.”
Notice that diagnosed with pneumonia is included in a paragraph within quotes.
From Media Research Center.
“Nicholas Confessore, Liberal Editor Turned Times Reporter”
“Confessore, who made his Times debut this month as a city reporter, is a former editor at the liberal journal Washington Monthly and more recently was staff writer for the liberal American Prospect magazine. He’s also written for liberal mags The New Republic and Salon. Apparently this is an ideal resume for a Times reporter, because he jumped to the NYT and now has a magazine cover story for his clip file.”
“Confessore then goes to meet Clinton’s last chief of staff for the real scoop: “How you view this arrangement depends a lot on whether you buy the assumption that letting the wealthy off the hook will eventually benefit everyone else. Early one recent Saturday morning, I paid a visit to John Podesta, the last chief of staff to serve under Clinton, at his home in Washington. He greeted me at the door in sweat pants and a T-shirt, and we sat down at his kitchen table to talk taxes. Podesta has a lean, shrewd face, a twinkle in his eye and a reputation as one of the party’s canniest operatives; these days, he heads the Center for American Progress, which he founded a little more than a year ago to incubate new policies and approaches among left-of-center types. Podesta has little faith in the conservatives’ trickle-down approach. He also says it is bad economic policy – ‘fatally flawed,’ as he put it.””
John Podesta is Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager.
I am betting that Confessore is the Hillary Campaign goto guy.
I am also betting that pneumonia is not why Hillary collapsed yesterday.
