You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anyone or anything.’ But the plans were on display…’ o n display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.’ `That’s the display department.’ `With a torch.’ `Ah, well the lights had probably gone.’ `So had the stairs.’ `But look you found the notice didn’t you?’ `Yes,’ said Arthur, `yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “Beware of The Leopard”.’

On Tuesday I led with a piece concerning the hilarity of crying “security” with Anthony Weiner and Huma when Bill Clinton is about to be let back into the white house. In that piece I had a quote from Donny Deutsch
Panelist Donny Deutsch guessed that Trump would have no problem counter-punching with the Epstein connection whenever he was hit for his own behavior with women, as he was last weekend in a piece in the New York Times.
“Here’s the tennis game,” Deutsch said. “Donald Trump kissed a woman in a bathing suit. Trump hits back: Tell me about the president’s relationship with a guy named Jeffrey Epstein. That’s your tennis match.”
In my original piece I had video from the Washington Free Beacon story containing that entire exchange. You might wonder why I didn’t include said video of Deutsch mentioning Jeffery Epstein and see the reaction of the people at the table.
Here is why
If you look at the view count you will see that seven minute clip had over 100,000 views before NBC decided to play copyright police game.
Maybe it’s just me but given how often we see stuff at mediaite et al it seems rather unusual for a news network to make a copyright claim over a clip from a news story that used as “fair use” by another news organization. Could this suggest that NBC wants to keep this clip out of the public view because it might hurt Hillary?
I can see the NBC reaction now: Nonsense, we’re not censoring the clip at all. The seven minute clip IS available IF you
Go to the Morning Joe site
Hit search taking you to the MSNBC search engine
Search for Donald Trump
Narrow the field to Morning Joe
Narrow the field to May 16th 2016
and sit through all the videos till you find the right one.
And skip ahead to the 12 minute mark on that video.
If you do so you CAN find the clip and watch the Morning Joe panel’s reaction to what Donny Deutsch says
So, You’ll have absolutely no problem sharing this clip with people far and wide and giving them a hint about the relationship between Jeffery Epstein and Bill Clinton and how the media views it…provided you are someone like me who
already saw the clip
remembered what show it was on
knew what day it was broadcast
And knew what time segment to look for
As for everyone else NBC says to you: Beware of the Leopard!
