Not even remotely hard to believe.

Seymour Hersh has a new book called  “Reporter” and this section comes courtesy of The New Republic:

Almost every person in Hersh’s memoir is a man—a sign of the time and the industry. But there’s an interesting moment that Hersh did not have to include. In 1974, he writes, Hersh heard that Nixon’s wife Pat was in hospital after being punched by her husband. It was not an isolated occasion. He did not report on the story, he told Nieman Foundation fellows in 1998, because it represented “a merging of private life and public life.” Nixon didn’t make policy decisions because of his bad marriage, went the argument. Hersh was “taken aback” by the response from women fellows, who pointed out that he had heard of a crime and not reported it. “All I could say,” Hersh writes, “is that at the time I did not—in my ignorance—view the incident as a crime.”

At one time Seymour Hersh was an icon of journalism with his incredible reporting on the Vietnam War and the Nixon Administration.

In recent years he seems to have wandered off into conspiracy theory territory and has become often unreliable with facts.

However much of this book seems to be gleaned from his early work when he was as sharp and fearless as they came. 

So DID Nixon beat his wife badly enough to send her to the hospital? 

If anybody has heard those Nixon tapes, they know full well he was a man with a terrible temper. 

And often those most victimized by men with terrible tempers are members of their own family. 

So it is not at all hard to believe this is true. 

Bullies often get their start bullying close to home. 

On an entirely separate note, has anybody seen Melania lately?

    “NEW: First Lady Melania Trump will not attend the G7 or Singapore summit with President Trump, @FLOTUS Communications Director Stephanie Grisham tells me
    1:15 PM – Jun 3, 2018 · Washington, DC”

    “Melania’s disappearance has been noted by people who believe her husband may have written a tweet professing that she is OK which appeared to use her husband’s signature syntax.” $LAPdown.

    If Mrs Trump wishes to remain as private as possible in that goldfish bowl she lives in, I can’t say I blame her. I’m just sorry that that innocent little boy is trapped in this storm, too.

      The child is autistic and, blessedly for him, can’t compute the dysfunction of his family. As long as he has his coping plans in place he is good.
