Shameful: Emails reveal NYT's reporter and former Politico reporter changed stories at behest of Clinton aides?

Can anyone say "No Credibility?"
Eyebrows were raised Tuesday evening after a batch of Hillary Clinton's emails released by the State Department turned up the names of two prominent journalists.
BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith and former New York Times correspondent Les Gelb both make a brief appearance in the newly released trove of messages, as the two reporters apparently discussed Clinton-related story ideas with various members of her team. The emails, which cover only the former secretary of state's first year at Foggy Bottom, raise questions about how much input Clinton's people had in the press' coverage of her early days as America's top diplomat.
In one of the correspondences released Tuesday evening, Smith, who was reporting for Politico at the time, discusses possible story ideas with Tommy Vietor, the former spokesman for President Obama's National Security Council.
