He now hosts Meet the Press.

Bill Clinton – it’s just about sex
After Bill Clinton denied a long-time affair with Gennifer Flowers, media+Left said “move on, she’s lying.” When the audio tapes appeared in 1992. The media+Left said “move on, the tapes are doctored.”

After Clinton denied having Paula Jones summoned up to a private room and invited her to “free willy”, the media+Left chortled when government officials claimed she was what turns up when you drag a dollar bill across a trailer park. They said “Can’t prove it, therefore she’s lying. Move on.”
