Hillary: If Fox was around in 90s, no Bill Clinton

The "vast, right-wing conspiracy" is alive and well, according to Hillary Clinton, and these days, it is being led by Fox News.
The former secretary of state contends that Fox News has a great amount of power to significantly change the political landscape. Speaking at the Bill Clinton election 25th anniversary bash last weekend, she acknowledged that "42" might not have survived the fair and balanced network.
“There has been a concerted effort – starting with the creation of the Fox network,” Hillary Clinton proclaimed. “It wasn't there when Bill first ran – it's one of the reasons he probably survived.”
This is not the first time that the failed Democratic presidential nominee has suggested that there was a plot against her and her husband.
Don Irvine, of Accuracy in Media, maintains that Hillary Clinton’s attacks against Fox News are relentless.
“This is part of her continued campaign against Fox News – against conservative media,” Irvine explaine. “It still goes back to what she said: the ‘vast right-wing conspiracy.’ She'll lump Fox into that – even though it wasn't there when she said it.”
It was there, however, for the fallout of the Monica Lewinski affair – although things were much different than today's feeding frenzy surrounding allegations of sexual abuse.
“It's kind of hard to transport today's thoughts and actions on sexual harassment back 25 years ago,” Irvine insisted. “The treatment was far different.”
Fox was just starting out, as well, Irvine went on to explain. It had limited coverage and was not able to hold Clinton's feet to the fire – the way today's mainstream media hounds Republicans.
“A Fox News like today in 1992 – it would definitely have a very different effect on Clinton's presidency,” Irvine concluded. “I think he would have had a very short presidency had Fox News been in existence in its current form now.”
This has Irvine pining for a modern-day Doc Brown.
“Wait a minute, Doc,” Marty McFly told the crazy professor in Back to the Future. “Are you telling me that you built a time machine out of a DeLorean?”
