Joy-Ann Reid's producers failed her and she asked Alan Grayson bad leading questions
Alan Grayson put on a clinic on how a nonestablishment candidate should handle corporate media. Unfortunately, a good journalist, Joy-Ann Reid, paid the price. Her producers failed her and she asked Alan Grayson bad leading questions.
Grayson did not take kindly to what he called a 'Harry Reid-like' smear. He 'corrected the record' for every question Reid asked.
The New York Times has a more or less accurate portrayal of Grayson's investigation.
WASHINGTON — The hedge fund manager boasted that he had traveled to “every country” in the world, studying overseas stock markets as he fine-tuned an investment strategy to capitalize on global companies’ suffering because of economic or political turmoil.
But the fund manager had an even more distinctive credential to showcase in his marketing material in June 2013: He was a “U.S. congressman,” Representative Alan Grayson, Democrat of Florida, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Now he is also among the leading Democratic candidates for one of Florida’s United States Senate seats.
This highly unusual dual role — a sitting House lawmaker running a hedge fund, which until recently had operations in the Cayman Islands — has led to an investigation of Mr. Grayson by the House Committee on Ethics.
The inquiry has become public, but emails and marketing documents obtained by The New York Times show the extent to which Mr. Grayson’s roles as a hedge fund manager and a member of Congress were intertwined, and how he promoted his international travels, some with congressional delegations, to solicit business.
But it is true that it is unlikely anything will come of the investigation. Mediate reported the following.
Now, this is a complicated issue, and the way it’s being reported, Grayson is right, he’s technically still under investigation but probably in the clear, but he’s being such a weenie about it that you start to wish he wasn’t.
The Grayson investigation is likely being blown up to ensure the establishment candidate running against Alan Grayson wins the Senate seat vacated by Marco Rubio.
