CNN uses”Fallout” Video Game Screen Shot to Explain Russian Hacking

Somethings are dumb, but sometimes the stupid is so over the top that it becomes corruption and when it comes to media corruption no one had more of it than our friends at CNN.

We are going to cover more about so called “Russian hacking” over the next few days, but the bottom line is this.

What we know:

1 – John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, The State Department under Hillary, and the DNC did not take cyber security seriously. Their flouting of even the most basic security rules amounted to violations of law.

2 – They did not keep software updates, antivirus and anti-malware security updated.

3 – Podesta himself had responded to one of those fake “send us your password” fishing emails that people with a brain simply delete. Some news outlets are reporting that Podesta, who was Hillary’s Campaign Chairman, even use the word “password” as his password for some accounts.

4 – The DNC prevented the FBI from reviewing their computers so they have no idea what happened there.

5 – The “US Intelligence Community” under Obama, who has been caught politicizing intelligence before, put out a report with “High Confidence” that it was the Russians who hack Hillary’s Campaign emails, but gives next to no supporting evidence which is unusual.

6 – Said report also shows that Podesta had an 18 month old malware program on his PC which could have sent his passwords out over the internet, but such software is unsophisticated, leaves an evidence trail, something any UPDATED anti-malware scanning program would have found, and in short is not something a state actor would use.

7 – Democrats and their allies in the elite media are desperate to create a narrative to delegitimize Trump’s electoral victory.

Getting back to CNN. Here is the story as it looks today, after they scrubbed it and cleaned it up, after being called out. Here is what it looked like on December 30th (Hat tip BGR):


The screen shot is obviously from the video game Fallout 3 or Fallout 4 as you can see from this Fallout 3 screenshot below:


How could they be so stupid you ask?

Election Denier Chuck Todd Melting Down in NBC Interview /w Reince Priebus (video)

Everything that Reince Priebus says in here is absolutely true. What CIA assessment? Two newspapers who have been caught lying and spreading fake news against Donald Trump now say that there is an unnamed source in the CIA that says that there is an assessment that falsely claims that the RNC was hacked by the Russians and that the Russians were the cause of Trump winning the election because the Clinton Campaign and the DNC emails were released.

WikiLeaks says that they did not get the email from the Russians and the so called “17 agencies” mentioned by Chuck Todd said that their results were inconclusive but that some of the the hacking attempts detected were consistent with methods used by some Russian hackers. Of course, if the Clinton’s were not contemptuous of digital security protocols in the first place……

Keep in mind that the crimes, dirty tricks and corruption revealed in those emails were true. There was no serious attempt at refutation of them as many of the emails were DKIM authenticated making the spoofing of them near impossible.

That said, the CIA has engaged in partisan hit jobs before such as the faux Valerie Plame scandal and the infamous Iran Memo when President Bush was in office.

The FBI has investigated and said on the record that there is no connection between the Trump Campaign and the Russians.

Enjoy the meltdown.

O’Keefe: The Media is dead – we killed it.

Legendary under cover journalist James O’Keefe exposed on video the Clinton Campaign hiring of thugs to create violence at Trump events, mass vote fraud, bussing in of people to claim they are citizens in order to vote for them etc.

O’Keefe spoke at David Horowitz’ “Restoration Weekend” and this is very much worth your time:

Bernstein: Democrats’ Supreme Court Arguments Cost them the Presidency and the Court.

Religious people and many who tend to skip elections turned out huge for Donald Trump, a non-denominational Christian with three divorces under his belt. Why?

Prof. Bernstien argues that the Democrats own arguments in front of the Supreme Court energized churches and talk radio like never before.

Aside from Hobby Lobby and the gay marriage arguments mentioned by Prof. Bernstein.  I would also add the arguments Democrats made in Citizens United v. FEC.

In Citizens United, President Obama’s Solicitor General Malcolm Stewart, said in oral arguments that any book, movie, film, video, on paper, digital or otherwise covering politics could be banned by the government if a corporation was involved in its production or distribution.

Think about that for a moment, all book stores are corporations as are most internet providers. Want to post to Facebook or your blog – sorry a corporation. Banks who provide loans are corporations, companies who provide paper are corporations.  In short, the Obama Administration argued for the virtual repeal of part of the 1st Amendment by judicial fiat.

So upset were Democrats when the Supreme Court ruled against the government that President Obama dressed down the Supreme Court during a State of the Union speech and Democrats in the Senate even voted unanimously for a constitutional amendment resolution repealing many of the political speech protections of the 1st Amendment.

Prof. Bernstien:

To what can we attribute Trump’s success? The most logical answer is that religious traditionalists felt that their religious liberty was under assault from liberals, and they therefore had to hold their noses and vote for Trump. As Sean Trende of RealClear Politics noted, since 2012:

Democrats and liberals have: booed the inclusion of God in their platform at the 2012 convention (this is disputed, but it is the perception); endorsed a regulation that would allow transgendered students to use the bathroom and locker room corresponding to their identity; attempted to force small businesses to cover drugs they believe induce abortions; attempted to force nuns to provide contraceptive coverage; forced Brendan Eich to step down as chief executive officer of Mozilla due to his opposition to marriage equality; fined a small Christian bakery over $140,000 for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding; vigorously opposed a law in Indiana that would provide protections against similar regulations – despite having overwhelmingly supported similar laws when they protected Native American religious rights – and then scoured the Indiana countryside trying to find a business that would be affected by the law before settling upon a small pizza place in the middle of nowhere and harassing the owners. In 2015, the United States solicitor general suggested that churches might lose their tax exempt status if they refused to perform same-sex marriages. In 2016, the Democratic nominee endorsed repealing the Hyde Amendment, thereby endorsing federal funding for elective abortions.

Megan McArdle of Bloomberg similarly pointed out, “Over the last few years, as controversies have erupted over the rights of cake bakers and pizza places to refuse to cater gay weddings, the rights of nuns to refuse to provide insurance that covers birth control, the rights of Catholic hospitals to refuse to perform abortions, and the rights of Christian schools to teach (and require students and teachers to practice) traditional Christian morality, some Christians have begun to feel that their communities are under existential threat.”


In short, many religious Christians of a traditionalist bent believed that liberals not only reduce their deeply held beliefs to bigotry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and undermine their institutions. When I first posted about this on Facebook, I wrote that I hope liberals really enjoyed running Brendan Eich out of his job and closing down the Sweet Cakes bakery, because it cost them the Supreme Court. I’ll add now that I hope Verrilli enjoyed putting the fear of government into the God-fearing because it cost his party the election.

UPDATE: As co-blogger Todd Zywicki wrote to me on Facebook, “When you find yourself in the Supreme Court adverse to the Little Sisters of the Poor you might consider whether maybe you have pushed a little too far.”


NPR Bans Live Interviews With Conservatives After Conservative Jew Wins Contested Interview

We could go on forever about the rise of antisemitism in the Democratic Party and the far left, but for the moment we are going to trust that you already understand that and move right to NPR, who is paid for by the taxpayers.

We are also going to trust that you know how NPR executives were caught on tape trying to take money from known terrorist organizations in order to fund programming smearing conservatives, TEA Party groups etc.

It is long passed time to cut NPR off. Their programming is something beyond biased, many of their featurettes are little more than dishonest smear jobs and some of their programming such as Code Switch, is overtly racialist in nature.

Joel Pollack is an orthodox Jewish American and is an editor at Breitbart News, which like good journalism used to, actually accepts columns and features from people they do not agree with at all, as they say that doing so is just simple journalism. The Democrat media establishment such as CNN is now throwing every one of those guest editorials in his face as if he wrote them or is somehow responsible for them.

Breitbart News:

National Public Radio ombudsman/public editor Elizabeth Jensen has recommended that the taxpayer-funded radio news service bar future live interviews of conservatives who may have controversial views, following an interview Nov. 16 with Breitbart News’ Joel B. Pollak.

To far left media outlets like NPR that are literally an extension of the Democratic Party any view other than their own is deemed “controversial.”

It is pretty hard to cut someone off and/or cut out the substantive parts of their answers when the interview is live.

FLASHBACK: The Fine Art of Poll Rigging to Sway Opinion or ‘Make News’

Flashback: This is what yours truly posted in a Facebook Note March 24. 2016. Even though the explanation below is rock solid, the NeverTrump crowd insisted that the RCP was the ultimate in reliability. Just a little I told you so!

By Chuck Norton, March 24, 2016.

Trump can’t beat Hillary because the polls say so! Look at the Real Clear Politics (RCP) Polling Average! It has Hillary beating Trump across five separate polls!


The way all five of these polls were done is misleading and dishonest. Why? A number of reasons, but most of all because most of the people polled are not even going to vote and have no incentive to be informed enough to do so.

How do we know that?

Because none of the five polls above are of ‘likely voters.’

Why does that matter?

Because of the Motor Voter Law, AKA the National Voter Registration Act, if you get a state ID or a driver’s license you automatically become registered to vote. Most people in fact do not vote.

NOTE: Motor Voter has lead to increased vote fraud. Because voter rolls can be checked to see who does not vote. Absentee ballots can be obtained in the names of those who do not vote and said ballot is cast for them without their knowledge.

Therefore, polls of ‘registered voters’ is only a residue better than polling ‘adults’ – read anyone who will answer the phone.

Have you ever seen Jay Leno ask random people on the street questions about politics or current events and the answers you get back are usually a total farce? The methodology used in these polls really isn’t much better.

In short, if you want to poll people who are the least informed, least likely to vote, the easiest to manipulate with leading questions and who are most likely to regurgitate the elite media narrative that they see on television, these are the people you poll.

The Fox Poll is of ‘registered voters’ –…

The Bloomberg Poll is of ‘adults’ –…

The Qunniapiac Poll is of ‘registered voters’ –…

The CBS-NYT Poll is of half ‘registered voters’ and half ‘adults’ –…

The CNN-ORC Poll is of ‘adults’ –…

The questions in several of the polls were leading. For example, the Quinnipiac Poll asked if Donald Trump was responsible for the violence that happened in Chicago. Of course this was after a week of the elite media and the other campaigns flooding the airwaves with the message that the violence, which was planned by Move On, BLM and other Soros backed groups was somehow all Trump’s fault, in spite of the fact that the groups admitted that they planned the violence in advance and proudly took credit for it.

This is also why at this time the other Republican candidates are doing better in these same polls vs Hillary Clinton. Ted Cruz and John Kasich are not getting pounded day after day in the elite media as Trump is. If Ted Cruz were to become the front runner the liberal elite media would assault him relentlessly driving his numbers down with those who have a short memory and simply accept and internalize the elite media narrative, most ‘likely voters’ do not fall in this category.

Lastly, it is important to keep in mind that general election polls this early are meaningless. The general election campaign has not even started and those campaign’s do move votes as Ronald Reagan polled far behind Jimmy Carter until late August and then won in a landslide.

UPDATE!! 8-22-2016

In comparing the polls from the RCP average from 2012 to the polls in the RCP average today…..THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE. In 2012 the samples were large and included large numbers of LIKELY VOTERS. You can look at them and see for yourself:…

But today the RCP does not use polls of likely voters, many just poll “ADULTS”. The problem is that “”adults”” mostly do not vote and because of motor voter legislation most registered voters do not vote either. These people are the least informed of all of us. They mostly repeat the elite media spin they see on TV back to the pollster. Here is the RCP average from today:…

There is only one kind of polling that is worse than polls of “adults” and that is Online Polls. When MSNBC puts up an online poll, who is most likely to respond? Democrats of course. So here is the NBC poll methodology from today’s RCP Poll:

“The NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking poll was conducted online August 8 through August 14, 2016 among a national sample of 15,179 adults who say they are registered to vote.”

In short, its a joke.

Survey Shows Trump Voters Have More Political Knowledge

Daily Wire:

A new survey provides evidence that supporters of Donald Trump tend to be more knowledgeable than Hillary Clinton supporters.

The survey, conducted by Conquest Communications Group and published by Just Facts, asked respondents 23 questions regarding education, taxes, spending, national debt, global warming, pollution, energy, hunger, Social Security and health care. Overall, the success rate for Trump supporters in correctly answering the questions was 43 percent, compared to only 31 percent for Clinton supporters.

Just Facts:

In total, the rates at which voters gave the correct answers varied from a high of 43% for Trump voters to a low of 31% for Clinton voters:

  • 43% for Trump voters.
  • 37% for 35 to 64 year olds.
  • 37% for males.
  • 35% for undecided voters.
  • 34% for females.
  • 34% for 65+ year olds.
  • 31% for Clinton voters.

Trolling, Flogging & Disinformation: Clinton Campaign Doc Gives Instructions to Army of Social Media Trolls

Most people have no idea that politicians, PR firms and corporations pay people to troll the internet. To counter comment those who speak the truth, to put out lies and disinformation, or to post vulgarities in comments to fatigue people into no longer commenting. There is software allowing a single person top control a thousand fake social media accounts. Wikipedia and WebMD are controlled by PR firms as their “official editors” have been caught taking money under the table many times.

Eventually this gave rise to companies who try to undo this damage and we see their commercials of TV. They will try to counter bad publicity about you by generating new publicity that will be optimized by SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so when people search they will see the good news you paid for right on top.

Here we have a document which instructs the campaign’s social media staff to spam Reddit conversation groups with “trolling, flogging, and disinformation”:


Clinton Campaign Email: How to Rig Polls…

The Clinton Campaign hired Atlas Research who makes recommendations to the campaign and the media for how to get the desired result from polling by targeting certain zip codes, minority groups, Spanish only speakers etc.

Why rig a poll? Rigging a poll to make news is desirable for the “band wagon” effect. If people think that “everybody wants Clinton” many people will not want to feel left out, alienated or different so they get on the band wagon.

Thanks to WikiLeaks we know that dozens of elite media journalists are actively coordinating with the Clinton Campaign (2, 3, 4), this is why it is no surprise that so many polls sponsored by the elite media oversample democrats or poll people who aren’t even going to vote to get the desired result.

In this email the Clinton campaign staff discusses how to generate rigged polling for the media. Here is the presentation attached in this email. See for yourself:


NEWSGATE – Sharyl Attkisson outs dishonest reporters who collude with politicians

Sharyl Attkisson

While WikiLeaks has given us a partial list of reporters who colluded with the Clinton campaign to help sway the election.

In her lengthy post, veteran CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson outs dishonest reporters by name and is keeping the list updated.  She called the scandal NEWSGATE.

The following accounts come from human sources, Freedom of Information Act documents and Wikileaks emails. Obviously, this is just a small sampling of the behind the scenes dealings going on between reporters and their sources.

Powerline: Never forget the liberal media runs a smear campaign every election cycle.

Thanks to leaked emails form the DNC and the Hillary for President Campaign we now know that scores of elite media reporters essentially work for them, coordinate with them, and even submit their stories to them for approval before handing them over to their editors.

Some are pretending that two weeks before an election stories of women claiming they were groped by the Republican candidate is some how something new. The allegations against Herman Can who ran for president in 2012 were demonstrated to be false and orchestrated by David Axelrod, Barack Obama’s campaign manager.

Powerline takes us in a short trip through memory lane:

Today’s news is dominated by claims that years ago, Donald Trump made crude comments about women, or inappropriately touched women, or intruded into a women’s dressing room, and so on. Gone from the campaign are such issues as the economy, Obamacare, national security and immigration. As Election Day approaches, the news is all Trump scandals, all the time.

Some will say–I may have said–that Republican primary voters asked for it by nominating a man with obvious personal vulnerabilities, instead of a more upright (and more electable) Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Ted Cruz or whoever.

But what’s a Republican to do? Last cycle, we nominated the ultimate Boy Scout: Mitt Romney. Whatever you think of Romney from a policy perspective, he is as admirable a man as you will ever meet. To find a presidential candidate of better moral character, you probably have to go back to Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Romney never said a rude word about a woman in his life.

So what happened? Did Romney and the GOP get credit in the press for the candidates’s outstanding character? No. Romney, who helped to create tens of thousands of jobs at Bain Capital, was denounced as a “vulture capitalist” and blamed, absurdly, for one woman’s developing cancer. The Washington Post made a front page story of the fact that 50 years earlier, when he was in high school, he and others had cut a classmate’s hair. Oh, and Romney was a racist, too. Does anyone remember why? I don’t.

The cycle before that, GOP voters nominated John McCain. McCain is a great patriot, a man of extraordinary character and courage who survived years of torture and abuse as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Did the liberal media give Republicans credit for nominating such a hero? No. The New York Times, to its everlasting shame, peddled a false rumor that McCain had an affair with a lobbyist. (Bill Clinton would have done that before breakfast.) It also berated McCain for failing to release his medical records–which, actually, he did, unlike Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

The Left’s permanent smear campaign against conservatives doesn’t just extend to Republican presidential candidates. Recall how the Democrat/media complex treated the Tea Party. Prominent House Democrats lied, disgracefully: they claimed, falsely, that Tea Party activists at a protest in Washington had hurled racial insults at black Democrats like John Lewis. The press ate it up. They printed the Democrats’ lies as facts, and to this day reporters and editors have never corrected the libel, even though a $100,000 prize to anyone who could substantiate the Democrats’ lies went unclaimed.

Center for Public Integrity: Elite Media Journalists Shower Hillary /w Campaign Cash

The Center for Public Integrity (CPI) deserves some credit. They started out in 1989 as a left leaning outfit who let partisanship get the better of them. They take money from George Soros and Arianna Huffington sits on the board of directors.  But as time went on the quality of their work has improved.

Today they called out left wing media bias and corruption of those “journalists” who are in the tank for the Democrats. It should be noted that they are not talking about partisan talking heads or talk radio hosts, they are talking about Journalists who fly the flag of “objectivity” when they are in reality quite the opposite.


New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum, a newly minted Pulitzer Prize winner, spent the Republican National Convention pen-pricking presidential nominee Donald Trump as a misogynist shyster running an “ugly and xenophobic campaign.”

What Nussbaum didn’t disclose in her dispatches: she contributed $250 to Democrat Hillary Clinton in April.

On the nation’s left coast, Les Waldron, an Emmy Award-winning assignment editor at television station KFMB, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, swung right in July, shooting $28 to Trump.

And Carole Simpson, a former ABC “World News Tonight” anchor who in 1992 became the first African-American woman to moderate a presidential debate, is not moderate about her personal politics: the current Emerson College distinguished journalist-in-residence and regular TV news guest hasgiven Clinton $2,800.

Conventional journalistic wisdom holds that reporters and editors are referees on politics’ playing field — bastions of neutrality who mustn’t root for Team Red or Team Blue, either in word or deed.

But during this decidedly unconventional election season, during which “the media” has itself become a prominent storyline, several hundred news professionals have aligned themselves with Clinton or Trump by personally donating money to one or the other.

In all, people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism — have combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump, according to aCenter for Public Integrity analysis.

Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton: About 430 people who work in journalism have, through August, combined to give about $382,000 to the Democratic nominee, the Center for Public Integrity’s analysis indicates.

About 50 identifiable journalists have combined to give about $14,000 to Trump. (Talk radio ideologues, paid TV pundits and the like — think former Trump campaign manager-turned-CNN commentator Corey Lewandowski — are not included in the tally.)


Milo Yiannopoulos Schools CNBC “Journalists” on Western Civilization (video)

The fact that Milo has to explain basic Western Civilization to these people is VERY indicative of just how far public schools have failed and radical our universities have become.

Everything Milo explains here used to be taught in the eighth grade. Also notice how leftists like Hillary Clinton define Western Civilization, freedom itself, as racist, evil, etc…

And in this video Milo takes a university radicalized feminist to school. It is university who filled her head with this nonsense.

Newt Gingrich Dismantles ABC News’ Martha Raddatz Over Anti-Trump Coverage (video)

The bias of Raddatz is as clear as it could be. As you can see that several times when he gets into the Clinton scandals revealed by her own emails recently released by WikiLeaks she tries to interrupt Speaker Gingrich.

Networks Trash Trump, Steer Clear of Clinton Scandals Revealed by WikiLeaks

The stats in the image above are just from last night. In the period between last Friday evening, October 7, to Thursday morning, October 13, the morning and evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC spent 4 hours and 13 minutes reporting on accusations against Donald Trump for sexual harassment and/or assault, while the revelations from Wikileaks regarding Hillary Clinton’s staff’s emails received coverage for a paltry 36 minutes. That is literally a 7-to-1 ratio.

UPDATE! Watch Hillary Lie to Meet the Press! Campaign Emails Show Clinton Pushed Obama is an Unpatriotic Muslim Angle in 2008

UPDATE – Her campaign put it out and now watch her lie about it from 2008:

It wasn’t so long ago the elite media liked to ask Republicans, “Do YOU think Obama is a Muslim? Are YOU questioning his patriotism?” When in fact they should have been asking Democrats aligned with Hillary Clinton.

In a group email exchange Hillary’s inner circle was having a discussion on how to push “negative facts” about Barack Obama.

Included in the discussion are:

John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman.

Kristi Fuksa, a pollster with the Democratic firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.

Paul Begala, political strategist for the 1992 Clinton for President Campaign.

Tara McGuiness, Senior Vice President at the Center for American Progress, the Clinton’s pet think tank.

Tom Matzzie, a former director of MoveOn

Susan Buffet, serves on the board of several foundations and charities, several of which walk a delicate legal line of serving the interests of the Democratic Party, a technique mastered by George Soros.

Here is the email with the “negative facts”:

UPDATE – The Washington Post asked Paul Begala about this. He said that they called this “The McCain Survey” because they were worried that Republicans would attack Obama using these talking points.

So we are to believe that very early in the 2008 primary when the Clinton’s and the Obama’s hated each other, Hillary’s inner circle was concerned about what Republicans might say about him?  Of course McCain himself never pushed these talking points aside from the tax raising. McCain even said, “You have nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency”

CNN Leaked Tough Debate Death Penalty Question to Hillary in Advance Via DNC Vice Chair Donna Brazile

UPDATE IEmails show that she got the debate questions in advance from debate moderator Roland Martin.

UPDATE II – Brazile passed other debate questions in advance to Hillary. Fired from CNN.

CNN tosses journalistic ethics out the window to help Democrats as a matter of routine. And while they are critical of her with the truth from time to time, what they repeat over and over is agenda driven to put it mildly.

This is one of the more severe cases of journalistic corruption. In this case, the day before Hillary was to have a town-hall meeting on CNN, the email reveals that CNN gave an advance copy to current DNC Chairman Donna Brazile, who was working for CNN at the time. Brazile sent it directly to Hillary Campaign Chair John Podesta and Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri.

It is no secret that most of Hillary’s interviews and town hall events at colleges are scripted with members of the crowd planted with questions in advance.

Here is the email and a video from the town-hall event:

Here is the email:


Hillary Campaign Chairman: We created pressure groups to infiltrate & Undermine the Catholic Church – UPDATED!

You may have seen in our previous post just what Hillary’s inner circle thinks of Catholics and the church via their own emails. Now you are about to find out just what they plan on doing about it.

The radical left has a series of pressure groups, astroturf groups, foundations and think tanks that are funded by the likes of George Soros, corrupt donors who want favors and contracts, foreign countries, neo-Marxist leftists and others. They network together to give the illusion of “grassroots progressive change”.

In an email between Hillary Campaign Chairman John Podesta and Sanford “Sandy” Newman who runs several of these phony pressure groups, Newman laments that there isn’t some type of Trojan Horse in the Catholic Church that can “plant the seeds of the revolution.” Podesta replies by stating that his people are already on it and have already created two phony astroturf groups that are starting to get to work on the ‘Catholic problem.’

Podesta email:

We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up. I’ll discuss with Tara. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is the other person to consult.


UPDATE – Hillary says religious people have to change their religious beliefs on abortion

NYT Reporter gave Clinton Campaign veto power over quotes used. Submits article for ‘approval’…

WikiLeaks has shown us via Hillary Clinton’s own campaign emails that there is no line between the Democratic Party and most of the elite media that covers them.

The rules seem to work like this – If  Republican miss speaks it is screamed loud and proud by the elite media and there are no “do overs” or revisions, but if you are a Democrat not only do you get do overs, you get to pick and choose what quotes are used and even get the questions in advance.

In this email NYT reporter Mark Liebovich asks Clinton Campaign Communication Director Jennifer Palmieri for permission to use certain quotes, submits his piece to her for approval and gives them veto power on what should or should not be included. So much for journalistic ethics.

The Email:

On Jul 7, 2015, at 10:30 PM, Leibovich, Mark <> wrote: i wanted the option to use all — and you could veto what you didn’t want. That’s why i selected the 5 or 6 I sent to you…The moose is good, but I’d really love to use the other things i sent, too. They were all on point.

Breitbart News:

Leibovich opens his article using his sighting of a moose as a “point of connection” with Hillary. As instructed he conceals Clinton’s mention of Palin and all other portions of the interview the campaign vetoed.

Despite allowing the Clinton campaign the ability to veto any interview content, in his article, Leibovich brags that even after the campaign sent him an email in the leadup to his story instructing him that the campaign office was “OTR” or off-the-record, he responded by writing that he “wasn’t abiding by any ‘office is off the record provisions.’”

After dishing out the marching orders, Palmieri finishes by telling Leibovich, “Pleasure doing business.”

Hacked Hillary Email: NYT/CNBC Debate Moderator John Harwood Brags About Provoking Trump to Hillary Campaign

CNBC Reporter DNC Operative John Harwood

These emails are so revealing. They are just one big cozy happy family.

Here we have NYT/CNBC reporter DNC operative and debate moderator being so proud of himself, running back to Hillary for President Campaign Chairman John Podesta, so he can brag about his mission to provoke Donald Trump. So much for journalistic ethics.

Read this email HERE as an example. Keep in mind that only 1% of these emails have been released so far.

The Daily Caller has a nice summary:

The latest batch of emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta show New York Times reporter and CNBC anchor John Harwood giving the Clinton campaign tips about other candidates and bragging about feeling vindicated by provoking Donald Trump as a debate moderator.

In a December 2015 email to Podesta, Harwood bragged about his much-criticized debate performance in which he asked Trump “Let’s be honest, is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign?”


CNBC correspondent John Harwood emailed Podesta numerous times, on some occasions to request an interview and other times to offer advice. On May 8, 2015, Harwood wrote an email with the subject line “Watch out.”

“Ben Carson could give you real trouble in a general [election],” Harwood wrote before linking to video clips of an interview Harwood did with the former pediatric neurosurgeon.

Hacked Hillary Email: Boston Globe Coordinated With Hillary to “Maximize Her Presence”

The hacked Hillary Clinton Campaign emails have been very revealing of just how in bed the elite media is corrupted and in the tank with the Democratic Party. It seems just by what has been released so far is that there essentially is no line between the Democratic Party and most elite media outlets.

Read the email HERE.

The Daily Caller summarizes it nicely:

Staff at The Boston Globe worked with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to maximize her “presence” during her primary race against Sen. Bernie Sanders, new emails show.

The exchange is one of thousands from the inbox of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta leaked by the online hacktivist group WikiLeaks over the past week.

Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s op-ed editor, contacted Podesta wondering if the Clinton campaign was still set to submit an op-ed. But then, Pritchard went above and beyond and offered tips about how the campaign could extract maximum benefit from the piece by coordinating its publication to match the Globe’s regular reporting.

“It would be good to get it in on Tuesday, when she is in New Hampshire,” Pritchard says. “That would give her a big presence on Tuesday with the piece and on Wednesday with the news story. Please let me know.”

Hacked Hillary Email: We conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry…

Thanks to WikiLeaks and the carelessness that Hillary and her crew have misused email we have a great understanding of the corruption, pay to play deals and general contempt the Democrat leadership has for the American people. Their actions are right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook.

Bill Ivey to Hillary for President Campaign Chairman John Podesta – LINK:

And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.


Hacked Clinton emails name more reporters willing to do campaign bidding

First this. Clinton hacked emails show Politico & NYT reporters doing campaign bidding

Planting stories and the whole gambit of media corruption seems a regular occurrence.

Daily Caller:

Another document in the leak, titled “Earned Media/Next Steps,” describes the Clinton campaign’s strategy for placing stories. The January 2015 memo states, “We are all in agreement that the time is right place a story with a friendly journalist in the coming days that positions us a little more transparently while achieving the above goals.” The Intercept reports that according to the document’s metadata it was created by traveling Clinton campaign press secretary Nick Merrill.

The memo continues on to say: “We have has a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed. While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for reengaging the beat press that covers HRC, for this we think we can achieve our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”

It later describes their strategy for a “sanctioned story.” “First, a list of names that we agree upon beforehand that we will give to a reporter on background, both policy people and campaign people. Second, some information provided on background that explains what is happening and why and third, a quote on-the-record that affirms all of this in an official capacity, making clear that this is a sanctioned story,” the memo states.

Clinton hacked emails show Politico & NYT reporters doing campaign bidding

This is antithetical to all journalistic ethics and in the Washington Press Corps it is the rule, not the exception. Remember the “JournoList” scandal from 2008?


Internal documents made public on Sunday revealed a reporter for the New York Times working with Democratic officials to promote Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy, with party apparatchiks saying she has “never disappointed” them.

The January 2015 document centering on Clinton’s media strategy, released by the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0, was describing Maggie Haberman, who worked for Politico but who moved to the Times that month.

“We are all in agreement that the time is right [to] place a story with a friendly journalist in the coming days that positions us a little more transparently while achieving [our] goals,” said the memo, which was first published by The Intercept.

“We have [had] a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year,” the unsigned document noted. “We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed. While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for reengaging the beat press the covers HRC, for this we think we can achieve our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”

The Intercept reported that metadata pointed to Nick Merrill, the campaign’s press secretary, as the document’s author.

CNN Caught Coaching Post-Debate Focus Group (video)

The “journalist” was caught coaching the focus group on camera…

This is not unusual for CNN. After all this is the network who said on the air that they are doing all they can do to get Hillary elected:

CNN also…and this is just the tip of the iceberg:

1 – Rigged a 2007 presidential town-hall style debate. How? Each “undecided voter” they picked from the audience to pose questions to Republicans ended up being a known Democrat campaign operative who had been on CNN before.

2 – The network asked Democrat campaign operatives in 2008 how the network should respond to “republican attacks” referring to the Democrats as “We”.

3 – Ran propaganda puff pieces for Saddam Hussien.

4 – Falsely added the word “racial” to Trump talking about Israeli profiling methods.

5 – Published misleading headlines and spin to protect Obama over the massive job losses.

6 – Blamed mass shooters who ended up being far left extremists, such as the New York museum shooter, on the TEA Party.

7 – CNN treats real violent left wing protesters as peaceful and peaceful TEA Party activists as violent (2).

8 – On CNN arch leftists are presented as “moderate Democrats” no matter how radical they are and yet Republicans are presented as “right wing”.

9  – The network that actually issued a “content advisory” before playing a part of the National Anthem.

Limbaugh: Journalism Has Adopted a Special Kind of Stupid to Be This Acquiescent to the State

Every once in a while Rush Limbaugh has a monologue that is something really special and this, while a long read, is one of the best explanations of what is wrong with journalism that one may ever see. It is worth your time.

(Full Disclosure – This writer has been quoted in a Rush Limbaugh Biography)

Rush Limbaugh:

Have you ever noticed, ladies and gentlemen, how the… You know, I call them the left, the liberals, the Democrats, whatever. Have you ever noticed how they claim they love Mother Nature?  They just love it!  They don’t like humanity much because humanity destroys Mother Nature.  But they love Mother Nature.  But then when Mother Nature does something nasty, like give us a drought or give us a hurricane, it’s not Mother Nature’s fault.  No!  It’s our fault….

FedGov Spends $1.5 Billion Per Year on Public Relations


The federal government spends $1.5 billion annually on public relations — $1 billion on PR and advertising contracts, and another $500 million on salaries for 5,000 federal PR employees, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

The report, requested by Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) found that advertising and PR contracts have ranged from $800 million and $1.3 billion annually over the past decade. As the report notes, the government spends taxpayer dollars on numerous advertising platforms:

“In addition to more traditional public relations media such as television and radio, agencies are expanding the use of various media technologies to facilitate communication with the public. These media technologies include e-mail, websites, blogs, text messaging, and social media such as Facebook.”

In addition, the federal government has close to 5,000 public relations employees with a combined salary of close to $500 million per year averaged over the past decade. These employees have a median salary of about $90,000 in 2014. According to the Census Bureau, the average median household income in 2014 was $53,657.

As the report notes, it is difficult to definitively determine the full amount spent on advertising because government contracts may encompass multiple activities. Many contracts were not included in GAO’s scope that may or may not have involved PR and advertising. As the report notes:

“We found 55 contract actions with the term “public relations” and 161 contract actions with the term “advertising” that had not been coded under the codes we included in our scope.”
