No matter what the election outcome next week, the media will be big losers. This campaign season has seen much of the media rip off their veneer of objectivity, too often acting instead as an unofficial campaign arm working to elect Hillary Clinton.The latest revelation — that the town hall moderator overseeing a Democratic primary debate gave CNN contributor Donna Brazile a peak at expected questions, and Brazile then fed Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff a question expected to come up in the primary debate against Bernie Sanders — confirms the too cozy relationships between the politicians and the so-called journalists and officials who are supposed to be helping Americans get unbiased information about candidates.
Bernie Sanders supporters should be outraged: We’ve seen time and again how the DNC was never going to allow their guy a fair shot at the nomination.
Americans now have reason to wonder about the other debates and who else in the so-called unbiased media world was seeking to assist the Clinton campaign by sneaking her a preview of questions or tilting the news in her favor. Such thinking is no longer cynical; it’s just realistic as we’ve seen just how widespread the corruption and bias goes.
And if people are willing to cheat in the debates, what else wouldn’t they justify cheating on to accomplish their ends?
There is nothing they won’t do if they can get away with it. Nothing. Just ask Seth Rich.
In defense of the Democrats, this isn’t really about them. It’s about the small group of people that control the Democrats and most of the Republicans for that matter. This fight is much, much bigger than just trying to topple an utterly corrupt family and political party.
