Former NBC reporter calls on the network to release older interview with Juanita Broaddrick
A former NBC News journalist is calling on the network to release raw footage of a 1999 interview with Bill Clinton’s rape accuser, Juanita Broaddrick.I see. So even that early, they chose to cover for Hillary. The full recording most definitely should be released, but they probably won't ever fulfill the request.
In a chat on the website Sidewire on Thursday, Yahoo! News reporter Michael Isikoff said that the NBC footage of Broaddrick’s “Dateline” interview would show that she told interviewer Lisa Myers that Hillary Clinton attempted to intimidate her weeks after the alleged rape, which Broaddrick says occurred at a Little Rock hotel in 1978.
“Broaddrick told her story to NBC and the WashPost in 99. Both organizations closely vetted her story and chose to run it,” wrote Isikoff.
“Also, NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Meyers [sic] interview,” he added.
Isikoff is the reporter who is credited with landing the scoop that Bill Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. The story was spiked at the last minute by his editors at Newsweek.
When Broaddrick resurfaced in January after years of silence, she claimed that Hillary Clinton tried to “silence” her in a brief encounter weeks after the alleged rape. The former nursing home executive said that she was at a political function when Hillary Clinton showed up, approached Broaddrick and shook her hand while thanking her for “everything you do for Bill.”
Broaddrick said that when she tried to pull away, Clinton grasped her hand and repeated the line. Broaddrick interpreted it as a veiled threat.
Isikoff, who worked at NBC from 2010 to 2014, noted that Broaddrick’s critics have questioned the claim that the former first lady issued the threat because Broaddrick did not mention it in the “Dateline” interview.
“Folks have made much of the fact that her claim about the conversation she had with Hillary wasn’t in the interview that run. Broaddrick said it got cut out; Lisa Myers has since agreed Broaddrick said this then — and NBC chose to cut it out,” wrote Isikoff.
Update: while we're on the subject, here's a Fox interview with Kathy Shelton, the woman who was raped in Arkansas by 2 men when she was 12 years old, and Clinton defended her attackers in court without a care how evil they were:
After watching this, I'm even more horrified than ever that Clinton would do such a terrible disfavor to a girl who'd been through such a horrific experience.
