It is noteworthy to mention the National Enquirer is a tabloid, just as it is noteworthy that in some very high profile cases they have gotten it right, such as the claim that John Edwards was having an affair and produced a "love child" while his wife was ill, just to name one of the most recent where the mainstream media ignored the story for years until the NE proved their assertions.
The NE gets a lot wrong, but when they go after very high profile political stories, they have some big wins, such as Gary Hart, Jesse Jackson, John Edwards, Tiger Woods, and more. (Source with details of each)
With that said, the optics of this following lead on their latest edition, seen across America at the check out line in a significant amount of stores, could have some serious ramifications for the Clinton campaign.
On their online announcement of this issue, they state "Hillary Clinton has tried to cover up her health problems — but even her lapdog reporters in the national media have been forced to confront the medical issues that have clearly plagued her public appearances. Now the new issue of The National ENQUIRER — on newsstands now — reveals the full scope of the candidate's multiple maladies in a bombshell exclusive report!"
The second image teaser states "The new issue of The National ENQUIRER offers the first fully comprehensive coverage of the health issues that have turned Hillary's campaign into a death watch! While the pundits make excuses, The National ENQUIRER exposes troubling new details — including reports of a crippling killer virus, a troubling addiction, and secret health crises covered up in the typical Clinton fashion!"
The third and last teaser caption reads "Top D.C. insiders and others who worked closely with the disastrous Secretary of State provide intimate firsthand knowledge of Hillary's crippling health problems, including fears of severe mental disorders! Get the inside story on why Hillary's health is making headlines."
The five-paragraph story, by Andrew Rafferty, was titled “Hillary Clinton fights back coughing attack” and reported that the "frog in Clinton’s throat on Monday was one of the most aggressive she’s had during her 2016 run."
Jon Favreau, a former speechwriter for President Obama, asked via Twitter if "anyone on NBC, or anywhere else," was willing to defend the piece.
The pushback signaled that Clinton’s campaign intends to sharply counterattack news organizations that take questions about her health seriously.
"They’re trying to work the refs a little bit as they try to push back on the mainstream media’s willingness to pick up on some of this stuff that’s usually left to the fringes," Clinton surrogate Jim Manley explained.
The Drudge Report and other conservative media sites have largely driven the coverage of Clinton’s health, following the concussion she suffered in late 2012 and years before she announced her intention to run again for president.
But Manley said the Democrat’s camp has seen the coverage "bleeding to the mainstream media" in recent weeks.
The related article linked above, calls the media Clinton "fans" and lapdogs, but this whole issue of the MSM studiously avoiding the topic of Hillary's health after we have seen multiple examples over the years of her falling, a concussion, blood clots on the brain, weird behavior, having to be helped up a short flight of steps by two of her protection detail, a wheelchair lift specifically fitted to the back of her traveling vehicle, and much more, is more than suspicious.
Is it because they are scared of the Clintons or just in their pocket?
Considering how many major media organizations and individuals are actually Clinton Foundation donors, as reported by Politico, with names and organizations and ranges of the donations shown, we have to side with the "lapdog" argument over the fear argument. Or a mixture of both as the organizations and organization leaders are donors, the writers may fear for their jobs if they don't toe the line and avoid Hillary's health as a topic, like the plague!
Hillary's health is a major concern, especially in light of the fact that she is the Democratic nominee for president and while a number of prominent and renowed doctors have weighed in, one of the best detailed explanations for the images, the videos and Hillary's bizarre behavior, using what is seen publicly and what has been reported on previously, a doctor of 36 years does a brilliant job in breaking down everything that is publicly known to date, in order to find one thing that explains it all, seen below.
The majority of Americans would have no clue as to the seriousness of Clinton's health problems if it was left up to the MSM, but it has turned into a public discussion now and Clinton could easily lay the matter to rest by releasing her most recent medical records, rather than some vague letter from an internist, that doesn't address any of the images we have seen, nor the odd behaviors Hillary has displayed of late.
Considering how many stores carry the National Enquirer, where the masses don't even have to buy the tabloid but will see that image in their faces, James in the above tweet, may be correct, the NE may have done what the MSM refuses to do and brings this to the attention of those that only usually read the MSM or listen to their nightly news.
