When it comes to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, there are no depths to which CNN will not sink. Innuendos, cut feeds, half-truths — they’ll do them all. When it’s a story that’s damaging to Hillary Clinton, though, they’re as silent as can possibly be.
That’s at least the lesson one can take from the case of Danney Williams, the young man who has claimed to be the illegitimate son of former President Bill Clinton.
The case has been slowly seeping into the mainstream press, as Williams has been pressing for a DNA test. However, no matter how mainstream it gets, CNN isn’t going to cover it. Or, at least, that’s what the Drudge Report said.
“CNN boss Jeff Zucker has directly ordered network staff not to cover shocking allegations made my Arkansas resident Danney Williams, the Drudge Report has learned,” the website revealed Wednesday. “‘Jeff thinks it is a ridiculous hoax,’ a top CNN source reveals.”
Williams’ story first made the tabloids in the 1990s. It picked up steam in April of this year, however, when Buddy Young, a former Arkansas state trooper, said that he and another trooper were paid $400 each to drive then-Gov. Bill Clinton out to a house with Bobbie Ann Williams, a former prostitute who is Danney’s mother.
“I always felt bad about Bill Clinton not wanting to be in my life,” Williams said in a video released on Monday. “Was it because I was black? Was there something wrong with me? It made me think sometimes even of suicide. It’s not fair and it has been hurtful.”
“Hillary, please do not deny I exist,” he added. “I am your stepson.”
While we don’t know whether or not the case is valid, it is something that’s worth reporting, especially given Trooper Young’s corroboration earlier this year. However, CNN is determined to stay silent no matter what.
If only they would do this for Donald Trump, we wouldn’t be complaining. However, moments like this are what show just where the Clinton News Networkbelieves its bread is buttered.
