The missing Clinton Tapes

From NewsMax:

Audiotapes released Sunday of President Bush speaking in a private, off-the-record conversation may not be as damaging as critics had hoped, with Bush winning raves in some cases for sounding the same in unguarded moments as he does in public.

But presidential historian and former first family friend Doug Wead, who secretly recorded Bush, is hinting that the full nine hours of audio he has could be a different matter.

Asked whether the president would view his release of the audio as an act of treachery from a trusted friend, Wead told the Washington Post on Monday, "It depends on what else is on the tapes."

Friendship takes a far, far back seat to profits in Wead's value system, doesn't it. He's still trying to pretend he was doing it for Bush's best interest.

Meanwhile, NewsMax points out another interesting aspect of the story:

The New York Times thought it was front page news when it obtained secret recordings of presidential candidate George Bush sharing a few personal insights, like admitting that he once tried marijuana.

But the Times and the rest of the prestige press don't seem particularly interested in another set of secret tapes, recorded while one of the participants actually occupied the Oval Office.

Only last June, former White House paramour Monica Lewinsky revealed that she's sitting on a stash of never-before-heard tapes of her own - recordings of President Clinton whispering sweet nothings into her answering machine. ...

But if the Times or any of its American counterparts are interested, they have a strange way of showing it. The U.S. media have yet to print a single word about Monica's secret tapes.
