What do you feel about the revelations from Wikileaks concerning Hillary Clinton and the media?
These documents are quite revealing. It appears CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS and others are nothing more than operatives for the Democrat party. The New York Times asked her permission to print quotes. Giving Hillary Clinton questions prior to a debate. They even told her when to smile and more. What contempt for people of faith...wow. Is there a real journalist in America?
I don't trust Wikileaks as far as I can throw them. This, as well as every other bit of news, should solicit the first consideration from the curious observer: consider the source.
We need more Fox News reporting on leaks from Russian hackers who feed them to Wikileaks.
I'm shocked you don't trust the source.
You should question, be fearful even, of why so many, from 'respected' media sources to the DOJ, time and again, are revealed to be in collusion with the Clintons... doesn't that illicit any concern at all?
Ken, I'm looking for examples of collusion. See my other post.
Scott years back I heard someone say that no one will fear the truth being found out, because there will be such a deluge of information no one will see the truth even when it is right in front of them, we have arrived, the truth is drowned out.
Ken, I agree. That's why I trust only credible sources of information that follow standards of professional conduct and that hire people trained in accurate reporting.
It's also why I go to multiple sources, read carefully and judge for myself.
Scott the problem is the 'credible' 'professional' reporters work for a paycheck, and have figurative guns to their heads... they report what they are told to report, or NOT report, or they lose their jobs... a person has to do their own research.
MSM and News are not even in the same species. News reporting is simple, report the information, after verifying it for facts, and credibility. End of story.
MSM treats people like Pavlov's dogs. Remember the 1st report, a small plane hit WTC?
Ken, I have never met one who felt he or she had a gun to their heads. If anything, they get mad when anyone from above tries to intimidate them and violate the rules they try to follow.
But they are not perfect. They make mistakes like anyone.
All the journalists who promote conservatives and call down Hillary are real and completely trustworthy, duh!
"We have had her (Clinton) tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed."
Everyone "tees up" media with stories from both ends of the political spectrum.
"Donna Brazile, then a CNN contributor and now acting head of the Democratic National Committee, tipped off the Clinton campaign about a question that would be asked during Clinton's debate."
Donna Brazile is not a journalist. She had the same role on CNN that George Will has on Fox. They provide commentary. If she leaked a question, she got it by stealth.

You asked for examples of collusion (above comment to my post)... there are so many, it is just a matter of typing the question into a search engine. here is one example: http://thefreethoughtproject.com/48197-2/
And you believe everything that is posted online? If we want to have a rational discussion about any issue, we need to use credible sources of information.
I consider reports such as that with quotes and sources that can be verified much more reliable than anything the news stations like MSNBC, FOX, or CNN come up with, absolutely. Again it is very easy to search online, verify sources, to one's satisf
How do you verify an online source?
Ken, do you agree that Donna Brazile is a politician hired by CNN and not a journalist? And that both Democratic and Republic politicians feed story tips to journalists every day?
From stealing the primary from Sanders to proof that Democrat campaigns actually coordinate with media outlets, that they really do hate many groups in society (Catholics, conservatives) and knew what they were doing while feigning ignorance, it is simply proof of what the right has been saying.
It also proves Dinesh D'Souza's description of them as a corrupt gang whose default solution is deny, deny, deny correct.
This is just more proof of the corruption and collusion going on throughout the 'establishment' between the Clinton Campaign, Wall St., and the media.
It shouldn't surprise anyone, no matter what side of the aisle you stand on, the level of corruption should have been evident long ago when the Obama Administration tried so hard to convince America that the riots throughout the Middle East, the deaths in Benghazi, were caused by a YouTube video... I mean, come on, just how dumb do they think we are?
Well when she calls Americans deplorable, irredeemable, cellar dwellers, then I guess Clinton, and her cronies, don't think very highly of us.
So... the emails reveal they prefer Americans to be ignorant, they don't think very highly of Evangelicals or Catholics, they rigged the recovery contract awards (Haiti earthquake) so that their (Bills) friends got awarded government contracts, etc.
Clinton is the poster child for everything that is wrong with Washington politics, she will sell America and American interests out whenever, wherever she can... she does not care about you, you are a worthless deplorable ignorant irredeemable lower form of life to her.
The depth of corruption is staggering. Even the House of Cards show did not go this far... At this point, I have no confidence in the democratic process. Our Constitutional republic is no more. People have lost confidence in the system. The wizard behind the curtain is exposed for a fraud and some people still are clueless. (giving them benefit of doubt)
Wikileaks should be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize for exposing corruption in the highest places. If the contents of these emails are false, let the people involved produce the real memo, otherwise, I take them at face value. They have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
They should be fired...including (media, political operatives, government employees...)
Where is the FBI?
Well said Jack.
Anyone who does NOT see that the entire process in politics is rigged against the citizens is either blind or has no concept of reasoning.
I said the same thing when Bush bailed out the banks - America is no more.
Actually on House of Cards we know that he killed people to get into the presidency. With the Clintons we only suspect they did the same.
Funny how people who support Hillary always want convictions - well, if she was convicted, we wouldn't be having this conversation, right?
But, even the news media has said those in the FBI investigations into her emails were appalled that she was not indicted for her email "problem"
She called Lewinsky's allegations about her and Bill as a "right wing conspiracy" while her husband almost got kicked out of the W. H. for lying about the sex.
But, hey, I know - lewd remarks from "The Donald", caught on tape, no worse or better than a President excusing himself from his duties to get a BJ, and his wife covering fro him.
From over 10 years ago - funny how those got leaked just before the debate. If it was "news", why wait 10 years?
Accusations from 20 years ago - according to the news media - carry much more weight than the FBI agents who are appalled that Hillary was never charged. Rigged by the meeting between Bill and Lynch.
Think over the past decades - what has the government speak been? Has it been the truth or lies?
I have found, more often than not, the government of the U.S. lies. Whether it be about obamacare, the beginning o the wars in the middle east by bush, the lies from reagan about the iran-contra affair, the CIA selling drugs in LA or weapons to drug cartels, the U.S. government lies.
Usually, when the government speaks, and I think it's a lie - odds are in my favor, it's a lie.
I believe Wikileaks much more than what any government spokesman is trying to spin. Just look at the GOP giving the active members within their own party the middle finger as they support the candidate that they want - Trump. Even the GOP is saying "screw you" to their members.
Even hillary, in a 2 person race - has to try and rig the process. That's what her and her husband have been doing ever since they started sucking off the taxpayers dole. They've never produced a darn thing.
Even at her foundation - she's got a file marked for those that want to "Pay to Play"
Ask yourself this,
If she was broke when she left the W.H. , never has had a job, only sucked out of the taxpayers trough, where has she accumulated the money to afford 2 houses worth over $4 million?
Answer that question and I'll shut up about one of the most deceitful, corrupt politicians that America has ever seen.
Wikileaks has more of my trust than ABC, NBC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, NPR - propaganda mouthpieces for the government. Wikileaks allows the truth to come out.
