Bill Clinton says / Vanity Fair is Unfair!

Why Bill Clinton Says Vanity Fair Is Unfair

Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:

Vanity Unfair?

Bill Clinton’s office has angrily responded to a Vanity Fair article accusing the former president of questionable business associations and a jet-setting lifestyle involving a seemingly endless string of women to satisfy what it termed his “cavernous narcissism.”

The 2,200 word rebuttal calls the piece “a tawdry, anonymous quote-filled attack piece” that “ignores much prior positive coverage, includes numerous errors, and ultimately breaks no new ground. It is, in short, journalism of personal destruction at its worst.”

It criticizes author Todd Purdum for devoting only a single paragraph to what it calls Mr. Clinton’s “enormous charitable accomplishments.”

Purdum’s article relies mostly on undisclosed sources and former aides who spoke anonymously to the former New York Times White House correspondent. He is married to one-time Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers who Purdum says was not a source for his article.
