This is just a YouTube video, so it has limited value for Jerry Brown, but it’s an effective mashup of the Clinton ad controversy, and helps move along the storyline that Meg Whitman continues to air false charges.
Whitman defends the ad, saying the charges that Bill Clinton made in the 1992 presidential debate with Brown — that under Brown taxes rose – are “essentially” true, though this week, Clinton disavowed his own words, saying they were based on faulty CNN reporting. (The former CNN reporter, Brooks Jackson, now with FactCheck.org, also acknowledged his erroneous reporting).
She doesn’t get much sympathy from even the local TV anchors who bring her in for a rare interview.
Even John and Ken, the conservative KFI talkshow hosts, get some licks in, suggesting she should find another issue to go after Brown on.
