The Clintons Kill a Negative Story

Are the Clintons killing stories that portray them in an unfavorable light as the campaign for President heats up? Ben Smith of Politico writes that GQ spiked a piece on the Clintons by Atlantic staff writer Josh Green. Apparently the Clinton campaign staff threatened the men's magazine with a loss of access to the former President, who is slated to appear on the December cover:

'''I don't really get into the inner workings of the magazine, but I can tell you that yes, we did kill a Hillary piece. We kill pieces all the time for a variety of reasons,' Nelson said in an e-mail to Politico.''

Charmed, I'm sure. (From my other gig at FishbowlNY)
