Hillary Clinton Just Saying Hi To Fox News, And That They're Skating Close To 'Actual Malice'
Hillary Clinton spoke at the New York state Democratic convention yesterday. Yes, the one Andrew Giuliani stood outside of and barfed out word sentences about how Hillary Clinton had bugged his large hero's very tall tower.
And she had some words to say about all the batshit conspiracy theories that Fox News, Donald Trump, and all the other usual suspects are making up about her this week, based 100 percent on lies about a loopy filing from hairball special counsel John Durham. Seriously, watching Fox News making up shit about Hillary Clinton this week has been like watching an addict who's been clean for a few months suddenly fall off the wagon.

These people are having orgasms out of places they didn't even know they could have orgasms out of.
But yeah, Hillary decided to talk about it.
Wonkette will add links to her quote, so you can read the Wonkette pieces we've written this week about the shit she's alluding to. You know, in case you've missed everything.

Fox leads the charge with accusations against me counting on their audience to fall for it again.

CLINTON: They've been coming after me again lately, in case you might've noticed. It's funny, the more trouble Trump gets into, the wilder the charges and conspiracy theories about me seem to get. So now his accountants have fired him, and investigations draw closer to him, and right on cue, the noise machine gets turned up, doesn't it? Fox leads the charge with accusations against me, counting on their audience to fall for it again. And as an aside, they're getting awfully close to "actual malice" in their attacks.
But as I said, don't get distracted ...
In response to the "actual malice" thing, Sean Hannity put on his toughest big man voice and said "Bring. It. On." It was a good impression of a tough guy just kidding not really.

In that clip, Hannity lies to his viewers by suggesting Fox News's reporting has simply been innocently reading from John Durham's filing, when Fox News has been just gutturally lying about what's in Durham's filing, because, as Hillary Clinton said above, they're "counting on their audience to fall for it again." Fox News is contemptuous of its audience, and indeed banks (with DOLLARS) on its audience falling for it, every single damn time. We could spend an entire week coming up with mean names to call Fox News viewers and we wouldn't scratch the surface of the contempt Fox News exhibits toward its viewers every single day.
But yes, should Hillary file a lawsuit, she would indeed have to prove actual malice. It's a high bar for a public figure, as Sarah Palin found out this week. Also Sarah Palin's lawsuit was an actual hot piece of shit. Something tells us Hillary would file a better lawsuit than Sarah fuckin' Palin.
Oh boy, wouldn't that be fun?
Now watch this fun video of Hannity throughout this week changing his story on the story every single night, as he desperately tries to cling to the fantasy that there's an actual story here ...
Monday: Claims filing shows servers were infiltrated\nTuesday: The servers weren\u2019t infiltrated but it\u2019s still spying\nWednesday: The NYT says spying and infiltrate isn\u2019t in the filing. We\u2019re gonna play word games now? \nThursday: I\u2019ll give the NYT creditpic.twitter.com/HDoalJyqgC— Acyn (@Acyn) 1645159323
