Bindi Irwin expresses frustration over Clinton org’s essay editing

Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin, told Sydney's Daily Telegraph that an essay she wrote for Hillary Clinton's e-journal was so heavily edited that her message became twisted in the process.

Irwin, 14, said she was asked to write a 1,000 word essay on wildlife conservation and overpopulation. She submitted her work to Clinton's staff, but when the edited version was sent back, said Irwin, she hardly recognized her own words.

Irwin—a worldwide star who has penned a book series aimed at young readers, has starred in movies and TV programs, and is a wildlife conservationist—told the Daily Telegraph that she decided to withdraw the essay from publication. "My words were twisted and altered and changed. I was a little bit shocked, to tell you the truth," she said.

(The paper did not mention whether it had tried to reach a staffer at the e-journal for a response.)


Irwin explained that the editing of a part about overpopulation stung the most. In the essay, she compared overpopulation on the planet to a birthday party where 15 people are invited but 70 show up. "I was really sad and I think it was more frustration because I'm trying so hard to get the message across and I guess some people don't want to listen," Irwin said.

Irwin's mom said her daughter even wrote a letter to Clinton's organization that said, "What happened to freedom of speech? This is my opinion and I don't want that edited out."

You can write whatever you want as long as Hillary gets to get rid of the things that don't meet her message standards.

Twisted, altered, and changed. Kind of like the White House after the Clinton's left.

I guess if Hillary didn't want her essay, she shouldn't have asked for it.

I heard she didn't include Sheryl Crow's "One square of toilet paper should be enough for anyone" essay either.

Man, you're a complete nut-so moron... I guess this explains your sand fears. Someone is REQUIRED to include an essay, they didn't like ...

You know, I think it is fair if Hillary doesn't include the essay if she doesn't like it. To re-write the essay to a version that suits the story that Hillary would like to present from Bimbi's viewpoint is another matter altogether.

Maybe you should work on your reading comprehension a little bit more. Twisted, altered, and changed suggests different things were written in place of what was submitted. It is called inferential logic, try it sometime.

Bindi Irwin said the incident had not damaged her admiration for Clinton.

"I would love to see her running for president one day because she's doing a really great job," she said.

Pretty funny, you left out the positive part, RIGHT PUTZ !???
