We’ve always assumed the media was working with the Democrats (see That Facebook Executive Claiming no Bias? Actually a Huge Hillary Donor… and Joe Scarborough Exposes Liberal NBC Bias…on MSNBC?). Now, thanks to Wikileaks, we have a paper trail. Or a smoking gun. Whichever metaphor you find less triggering.
Kenneth Vogel, a reporter for Politico, sent a copy of his story about Hillary Clinton’s fundraising to the DNC in late April before publishing it. The subject line read: “per agreement … any thoughts appreciated.” The agreement was that they could see his story before Vogel’s editors saw it, as long as he didn’t share it. There weren’t any significant edits made, Business Insider reported, and Clinton still was unhappy about the story. But the agreement still is strange considering that journalists typically don’t get approval on stories first from their subjects. A source told Business Insider this was just to make sure the facts were accurate. You can read the email here.

I guess this means when were refer to “media bias” in regards to the Democrats, what we really mean is unapologetic lip application and suction of the anus. Remember that next time you have the unfortunate experience of seeing the backside of Hillary Clinton. Doesn’t matter the color or material of the pantsuit.
I make no apologies for the visual I’ve implanted in your mind. Though I am a wee bit sorry I didn’t issue a trigger warning, for those of you who enjoy a little snack while reading. But hey, at least you know your upchuck reflexes are working. Saved you a trip to the doctor’s office.
Of course we’ve always known the media and the DNC were like first cousins doing unspeakable things behind the bleachers. There were just too many narratives which perfectly aligned with Camp Clinton. See also the media’s “ignoring” of Benghazi, and excusing of her email scandal.
This is just the beginning of the wave of new information which will come out of this story. At the time of this post-writing, there are over 19,000 emails released. Methinks even more links exposing the cozy, incestuous relationship between the media and the DNC will be exposed. In addition to how the DNC has rigged their own system for Hillary Clinton. Check out some of the more damaging of the emails here.
All of this? Media colluding with a political party? It’s why alternative media sites (like this one, ahem) matter. It’s why there’s not much trust shared between the people of this country and the mainstream media. We’re not morons. We know the system is rigged, including our own media. A media which, in theory, should’ve exposed those in power for what they were: power-hungry snotweasels looking to dominate.
As if you needed any more reasons not to vote for Hillary…
