EXPOSED: Leaked Emails Show DNC Colluded with Media to Push Clinton Nomination

Despite claims of neutrality, recently leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee was putting its thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton for over a year.

When it was revealed that “Guccifer 2.0” (named after Romanian hacker Guccifer, who confessed to hacking into Hillary Clinton’s private email server multiple times) hacked the DNC’s servers, the main story was about leaked opposition research on Donald Trump. But on the same site Guccifer published the Trump research, “2016 GOP presidential candidates,” there were also DNC talking points suggesting the party’s central organization had been working since May of 2015 to make Hillary Clinton the nominee.

The DNC was diligently cleaning up Clinton’s record, using “specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency, and campaign finance attacks on HRC.”

The email also suggested collusion with media networks to push Hillary Clinton as the party’s eventual nominee, and anchors for national cable news networks may have broadcasted DNC talking points spoon-fed to them by Democratic Party operatives.

In the “Reporter Outreach” section, the document suggested “off-the-record conversations and oppo pitches to help pitch stories with no fingerprints and utilize reporters to drive a message.” This would seemingly vindicate Bernie Sanders’ supporters who have claimed networks like CNN have had a consistent pro-Clinton, anti-Sanders bias


A lot of us suspected, some denied it. There can be no denial now. And if you don't think this is worth a few hundred delegates, in a race where over 4,000 are up for grabs, then you're .... a typical Shillary fanboi.

Destroy the machines.

From the OP article:

Yet another document leaked by Guccifer 2.0 is titled “HRC election plans,” which is a two-page list of talking points. Clinton has repeated many of these talking points verbatim on the campaign trail. One remark, “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times but the deck is still stacked for those at the top,” comes directly from the video Clinton released announcing her 2016 campaign.

Talks about deck being stacked for top 1%, using a talking point generated by the machine stacking the deck in her favor, so she can be POTUS and stack the deck for them further.

Another (near identical) article:

Honestly, this has been going on for a while, IMO. This is just actual proof. It's why I support Trump. He's breaking the GOP. Next cycle, I'll need some that will break the DNC the same way. Maybe Bill Maher will run?

The "Media" as you call it is part of the DNC in spirit. The MSM (Main Street Media) is composed of people who vote, donate, and work for democrat causes.

The chance of a Republican getting neutral, let alone favorable coverage is slim at best.

As wise poster noted, "Welcome to our world". Truer words were never spoken.

Maher seems unlikely, but if we're dreaming why not shoot for the moon, Stewart/Maher 2020.

To one degree or another, most people accept that media gets involved in politics beyond just coverage. Having a lean is one thing though, this is the media becoming a member of her team, taking marching orders directly. The media should be ashamed. A once prestigious industry caught red handed on the wrong end of the leash. We may have already known, but seeing it so thoroughly exposed is sad indeed.

The vast majority of the media has always had a left-leaning slant and report the news through that filter. It only makes sense for them to also use the media to get their candidate elected.

Did I miss the emails where the 'liberal' media sent the DNC suggestions on how to push Hillary? Did i miss the emails where the 'liberal' media thanks the DNC for talking points?

Did I miss where the DNC emailed attack talking points against Bernie?

Fact is Hillary was always the front runner- the 'liberal' media did as much to throw shade on Hillary when Bernie won states that had ZERO chance of ever of winning in a general election. Why ol' Bernie was on a winning streak by taking tiny caucuses in red, red, red states out west... :roll:

I also will note trump got millions of dollars of free propaganda time by every 'liberal' network allowing him to call in almost daily and the 'biased liberal' media seemed content to never call Trump out on his string of lies and quite happy to accept his staff's walk back on some of the bat **** crazy comments Trump is making.

But Conservatives do like playing the victim card... :peace

I know, right? Gosh, it's almost as if they had a vested interest in promoting the guy who would bring them huge ratings, but who would also be the easiest to defeat in the fall.....

They did try to call him out on his lies, his supporters just didn't care. Honestly though, the media thought they were hurting Trump all that time, and they were very very slow to learn that lesson (many still haven't). Or perhaps they just didn't care because he was Shillaries best shot at an easy(-er) general election. Go figure media helped the republican candidate with the undisputed worst numbers push his way through to the nomination, against all odds.

I wonder, will that beast Debbie Wasserman-Schultz keep her job as DNC chairman after the election is over? That woman has been in the tank for Hillary for a long time, and she did everything in her power to ensure that Hillary beat Bernie.

I hope not. She's one of the main reasons I've become disenfranchised with the Democratic Party.

But maybe that's a good thing, because it did open my eyes to the corruption of the DNC and the Democratic Party in general.

Try not to open them too wide. If you do, you'll see this hideous looking orange man leading the other guys. Scary times in our government.

What DWS did to Bernie is shameful. She should be voted right the hell out of there.

So much for the illusion of the DNC being open and honest and conducting an open and honest primary. :doh

LOL So your big news is that the DNC supported a long time Democrat over a socialist who is not even a party member.? It IS called the DNC isn't it? Bernie could have run as an independent and had his OWN party and called it the SNC. He would have not had to worry about the DNC favoring their own then.

A bit more than just 'supported', more like they put their thumb on the scales. Didn't treat someone running as a Democrat fairly, now did they?

Complain as you might about the large number of candidates that ran in the GOP primary, at least that appears to have been conducted with quite a bit more 'fairness' and even handedness, which the DNC primary appears to have not done.

What a shock! Illegal and unethical behavior regarding emails by the DNC involving Clinton.

Some will find that hard to believe. Mostly democrats.

LOL The GOP spent millions trying to defeat Trump. You are such a hypocrite.
Are you claiming voter fraud because there is no evidence of that. Hillary beat Sanders by nearly 4 million votes and I would say that is a "fair" number.

The DNC is officially supposed to be neutral. They colluded with major media outlets to produce a strategy, which takes full advantage over said outlets acting like obedient pets (be they attack dogs or cute cuddly photo shoot props) , to lever a grossly unfair advantage in the democratic process to push their chosen one. You really want America run this way? Think beyond the current contest.

And I notice you didn't deny that this likely did affect the outcome of at least a few hundred delegates. If you're willing to accept that this process has been no where near fair, and you have no problem with that, then we're good here. Hopefully the shame you should be feeling will come with time.

Voters have to hold their elected politicians accountable. If they do not, corruption as it were, sets in. The GOP corrupted itself into ignoring the base, and the base stupidly retaliated with Trump. The Dems have been taking their voters for granted so long that Sanders almost represented them, an equally bad candidate to Trump for different reasons, the point being both parties voters revolted. The Whigs died because of stuff like this, the GOP is likely to shatter after this election.

Some in the GOP, but not the GOP itself, I'm pretty certain, so no, not a hypocrite. Where as the DNC most certainly put their big fat thumb on the scales.

Why wouldnt she keep her job? She protected the machine from Bernie Sanders and got the party candidate of choice nominated. Hell...she should get a raise.
