I deplore this value-laden headline:
Clinton Earns $12 Million Speaking, Writing After Service
Hillary Clinton has earned at least $12 million in 16 months since leaving the State Department, a windfall at odds with her party’s call to shrink the gap between the rich and the poor.
Clinton’s income since her resignation as secretary of state in February 2013 is derived mostly from her latest memoir, speeches and paid appearances at corporate retreats, according to an analysis of data compiled by Bloomberg.
I doubt there is a consensus as to whether she earned it, although I am sure she cashed the checks.
