Josh updates the story today. Turns out Inside Edition embarrassed every major media outlet by asking Hillary about the pardons by her co-president. Hill's response? "Well, I didn't know anything about it".
Evidently, she was too busy running for cover from sniper fire.
Neither Josh nor New York Newsday is buying it.
But as New York Newsday points out, the murders in question (the crime the two individuals were in prison for) took place in New York. And the campaign to get them pardons and the opposition to it got a lot of publicity in New York in the summer and fall of 2000, when Clinton was initially running for senate. Newsday's blog has a chronology of who was doing what, including Sen. Schumer's lobbying against the pardon. So take a look and let us know what you think. For my part I think it makes her claim not to have known anything about seem a bit dubious.TPM is following up, but do we otherwise have to depend on Inside Edition for this stuff or will the Times or WaPo maybe ask a question or two?
