When Bill Clinton was in the White House, I found much of what he did dubious, though his successor has made all 42 of his predecessors look better in comparison.
Whatever crime or folly (and the latter is worse than the former for believers in realpolitik) Bush & Co. commit, there are some who manage to blame it on Clinton. This has provided some cynical pleasure over the years of W's misrule, but, in celebrating Tony Blair's stepping down (one criminal down, a handful more to go), Paul Craig Robins shot an arrow at the Clinton legacy that should stick:
'People damn Bill Clinton for many reasons. Perhaps his greatest failure was in permitting the media concentration that destroyed the independence of the "mainstream media." The American media is no longer in the hands of journalists. It is controlled by advertising executives and corporate bosses who will never put their empires at risk by offending government and advertisers. They believe readers and viewers want to be entertained, not challenged by truthful news. Journalism schools now teach students how to spin the news away from uncomfortable truths. Reporters and editorial writers are being turned into shills for those in power'
(The "liberal media" would be amusing like belief in a flat earth were it not a bogeyman so effective that it terrifies news organizations. Time-Warner and other corporate conglomerates are NOT "liberal"!)
