Former TIME Reporter's Eye-Popping Confession About Clinton:
"I'd Be Happy to Give Him [Oral Sex] Just to
Thank Him for Keeping Abortion Legal"
Bozell: "An Apt Metaphor For How The Media Have
Treated Clinton Since He First Ran For President"
ALEXANDRIA, Va. --- Media Research Center Chairman
Brent Bozell reacted with only modest surprise at the admission by former
Time magazine White House correspondent Nina Burleigh that she would give President Clinton oral sex "just to thank him for keeping abortion legal." Ms. Burleigh's eye-popping confession comes in an interview with the
Washington Post after her revealing essay in the latest issue of Mirabella magazine in which she admits she would have been open to having an affair with Clinton.
"I want to thank Nina Burleigh for coming clean and finally providing all of America with an apt metaphor for how the national media have treated Bill Clinton since he first ran for office," Bozell said.
Burleigh told the Washington
Post: "I'd be happy to give him [oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal." Describing what she perceived as the president's flirting with her aboard Air Force One during a game of Hearts, she wrote in Mirabella: "If he had asked me to continue the game of Hearts back in his room at the Jasper Holiday Inn, I would have been happy to go there and see what happened."
Bozell added: "In graphic terms Nina Burleigh has exposed the media's love affair with Clinton's liberal policies. This is why so much of the establishment press gives Bill Clinton such a pass on scandals that would have brought down any other president."
