Once Again, New York Post Wins the Day For Best Clinton-Themed Cover Art

In the tabloid war between the New York Post and New York Daily News, you can mark this one in the “win” column for the right-leaning Post.

Just a day after FBI Director James Comey made the stunning declaration that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would not face charges regarding her handling of classified information on a private email server, the Post used its cover page to illustrate how it really feels about the Democratic presumptive nominee:

“She was ‘extremely careless’ with top secret information, yet Hillary Clinton dodges responsibility as the FBI recommends against criminal charges,” reads the subhead.

The FBI’s findings are only a recommendation to the Justice Department, who will ultimately have the final say. However, considering the fact that the Obama-appointed Loretta Lynch is the active Attorney General — not to mention Lynch’s tarmac rendezvous with President Bill Clinton last week — AND the dangling bit of news that a potential President Hillary Clinton would consider keeping Lynch in as AG… charges are unlikely.

Ergo, as the New York Post colorfully points out this morning — Hillary Clinton skates.

The most liberal Daily News opted to focus its full-page cover on a hometown interest story: the return of shortstop Jose Reyes to the Mets.
