On Monday, WikiLeaks released its latest batch of hacked e-mails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and provided another case of collusion between the campaign and the news media as now-interim DNC chair and recently-axed CNN political commentator Donna Brazile shared additional town hall questions in advance with the Clinton campaign while Clinton was running against socialist Bernie Sanders.
A confidant of Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta explained in an e-mail how to get the New York Times to change how the daily newspaper covered the secretary of state, according to e-mails made public by WikiLeaks from the chairman's hacked Gmail account.
Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden told Podesta how former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg met with Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the Times, to get the paper to stop treating him like a billionaire dilettante instead of a third-term mayor.
Our last dive into the WikiLeaks trove yielded the proverbial smoking gun that confirmed our suspicion of collusion between Univision and the Clinton campaign. Below is an evolving timeline that confirms, beyond reasonable doubt, that Univision is inextricably joined with the Clinton campaign in corrupt purpose and deed.
Major networks have downplayed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server, but WikiLeaks revealed how one journalist told her to take it seriously and respond like Kennedy did to the Bay of Pigs disaster. According to Wikileaks, The Hill columnist Brent Budowsky sent an email to Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta in August 2015 suggesting Clinton should respond to the email scandal the same way John F. Kennedy responded to the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. In the same email, he clarified that “publically” he has continued “defending [Clinton] with no-holds barred.”
Nuestro último vistazo al archivo de WikiLeaks mostró prueba contundente que corrobora nuestras sospechas de colusión entre la cadena Univision y la campaña de Hillary Clinton. A continuación les presentamos un cronograma que confirma la colusión corrupta más allá de duda razonable.
On Friday morning, Fox host Brit Hume tweeted about the John Podesta emails hacked by WikiLeaks: “I never imagined you could do a puff piece about Podesta's emails, but @washingtonpost has done it.” The Post turned to left-wing Style writer Dan Zak to take a light approach. Above a picture of Podesta, the tease was “In the insider’s inbox: Political zingers, recipes, honey-do lists, and UFOs.” Below was the headline: “Well the truth is out there now.”
News broke Thursday of a new Clinton campaign e-mail exposed by WikiLeaks that reinforces the persistent notion that the Clinton Foundation is a pay-for-play scheme. And yet the “Big Three” networks ABC, CBS, and NBC pretended like it didn’t even happen. “New scrutiny tonight on the Clinton Foundation coming from what were supposed to be private e-mails,” stated Fox News Anchor Bret Baier on Special Report, moving on to ask, “How much money and how much influence were on the table in dealings involving the Clinton family charity?”
Modern journalists have little in common with those I was privileged to know when I was a copyboy at NBC News in Washington in the '60s. Today's "journalists" will disagree, but as numerous surveys have shown, the public trust in what is collectively called the media has sunk to an all-time low. Only the media think they don't have to change and can continue to sell a product more and more people refuse to buy.
To the surprise of probably few readers, the media have been doing their best in this election to cover for Hillary Clinton’s numerous scandals and Wednesday night provided the latest case as the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to acknowledge new revelations from hours earlier via the latest WikiLeaks dump that included more coziness between Clinton and the media.
On Monday, Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller blog spotlighted NBC's Chuck Todd and his wife's apparently cozy relationship with Hillary Clinton's campaign communication director, Jennifer Palmieri. The Todds sent out invitations for a September 2015 event at their house honoring Palmieri and her husband, Jim Lyons. The couple included the Clinton flack's supervisor, campaign chairman John Podesta, as disclosed in one of the e-mails released by Wikileaks.
ABC's Good Morning America on Saturday stood out as the only Big Three newscast so far to cover Hillary Clinton's new denials about her e-mail scandal. Devin Dwyer reported that Clinton was "asked about details of her decision to use private e-mail...[and] answered 20 different times with a variation of 'do not recall.'" The morning show, along with ABC's World News Tonight and CBS Evening News on Friday, also reported on the latest batch of John Podesta e-mails released by Wikileaks. NBC only mentioned Wikileaks in passing on Saturday's Today.
In an unusual turn of events, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was “very disappointed” that Jimmy Kimmel failed to ask her about UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) during an appearance on his late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! last November.
The reason? She had practiced her answer on the topic beforehand, according to an internal Clinton campaign email made public by WikiLeaks.
