My guest today is blogger, peace activist activist, author, David Swanson.
Joan Brunwasser: Welcome back to OpEdNews, David. We last spoke back in January Bernie and the Media: No Love Lost.Wikileaks later revealed proof of media collusion with the DNC and Clinton campaign, so you were right on target with that one, but that ship has now sailed. This time I'd like to talk with you about your latest piece What Hillary Clinton Privately Told Goldman Sachs [10.15.16]. How do we finally know what happened behind closed doors?
David Swanson: Well, we have what WikiLeaks credibly presents as the transcripts of three of Hillary Clinton's speeches to Goldman Sachs personnel, as I've blogged about at that link.
JB: So, what exactly do those transcripts reveal? And was Hillary smart to resist releasing them?
DS: Maybe clever is a better term for being deceptive and anti-democratic than smart, but certainly the transcripts are not something she wanted public and not something all of her supporters in the corporate media are paying much attention to now that they are public. And of course it took WikiLeaks to make them public whereas the New York Times was able to get a story on Trump's tax forms.
