Cozy Relationship Between Clinton Campaign And Media Revealed

The disparity in the amount of negative coverage attached to the respective presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump continues to grow, but eyes are slowly being opened to how the strings are being pulled behind the scenes. According to Mediaite, while the media was falling all over itself in an attempt to bury the candidacy of Trump, WikiLeaks lifted the curtain on some concerning comfy-cozy relationships between various media members and the Clinton campaign.

Numerous instances have been pointed out through the various WikiLeaks dumps, but the media continues to turn a blind eye for the most part.

“From time to time I get the questions in advance,” said former CNN contributor and interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile, before continuing “here’s one that worries me about HRC.” She was referring to a town hall question that would be posed to the candidate, and Clinton received a nearly verbatim repeating of the same question at the subsequent event.

That’s downright stunning on a number of fronts. For starters, how can a previous CNN contributor gain such easy access to town hall questions for a network event? Second, if Brazille returns to her duties at CNN once the election wraps up, how can anything she contributes to the airwaves not be taken with a grain of salt?

There are dozens of more instances that you can check out, and they all point to the same painful conclusion: the suspicion that certain members of the media are squarely in the tank for the Clinton campaign is unfortunately right on the money.
