To the dismay of some Hillary Clinton supporters, Consortiumnews.com has noted a disturbing trend in the candidate's handling of the truth, as she and her advisers have exaggerated her accomplishments and sometimes distorted Barack Obama's words.

The Washington Post reached a similar conclusion in awarding Sen. Clinton the maximum of "four Pinocchios" for telling a "whopper" in her claims about derring-do during her 1996 trip to war-torn Bosnia.
