    Why is the mainstream media ignoring the wikileaks Clinton email dumps?

    The media is devoting little time to the wikileaks Clinton email dumps.  Why is this?

    The Gigantic Material "DUMP" can't be "Authenticated" therefore, it's Immaterial to the FACTs ~ It's unclear as to the "ORIGINATION" of the E-Mails / Docs ~ Are they "Genuine E-MAILs" or Fabricated from Scratch and or ALTERED ?? Legitimate Questions which unfortunately Render the ENTIRE Criminal Enterprise of ESPIONAGE "Against "WE the PEOPLE" Committed by an EXILED Australian Criminal living in a Cave in Ecuador & Communist Russian Agents "IRRELEVANT & WORTHLESS" as it should be ~

    Just remember what's happening here ~ There's a MEDIA-Hungry WEIRDO livng in Ecuador & Putin Operatives living WHEREVER, Attempting to Manipulate OUR System to get a "Mentally DISTURBED" Meglomaniacal Woman ABUSER ELECTED President ~ PERSPECTIVE ~

      Perhaps journalists need to take an honest look at the emails, like they claim they're doing with accusations against Trump, to determine whether they're real or falsified?

    It's not a "ratings grabber".
    Anything Trump has always drawn more attention/ratings.
    Every news cycle they're mentioning emails but most voters aren't interested in them as much as they are sexual assault accusations.
    Lastly (Clinton isn't responding to the leaks) the way Trump is responding to the various allegations he is hit with.
    When someone doesn't "fight back" the attackers tend to move on.

    Why did they ignore Benghazi?

    Why did they ignore "Clinton Cash?"

    Why are they ignoring "Hillary's America?"

    Why are journalists contributing to the Clinton Foundation?

    Why do half the media employ journalists and people who worked for or with the Clintons?

    Why does Obama want to stop the release of Hillary's 33,000 deleted emails? Weren't they just personal emails about yoga and grandchildren? Not a threat to the nation, right? So why declare cyber war on Russia?

    Do you see a pattern here?

    The government and the media are nothing but hacks for the Hillary campaign, and that's a transparent fact, just the tip of the iceberg that the electorate is steering America directly into, that is if you believe the media polls. Given all I've just said why would one even believe them? Polls of likely voters they may say but this election will be determined by the unlikely voters, those who never vote because they are sick of the lies and the corruption in the system. This time they have a reason to vote, Trump can't be bought and the ones who are have to go...
    starting with Crooked Hillary.

      Trust me if Hillary were (personally involved) in a sex scandal or extra marital affair that would get far more media attention than anything you've listed. smile The media is all about ratings!

      I think it is a sign of how corrupt the system has become... the Irony is she started her career in an effort to prosecute Nixon for his campaign crimes, and she became ten times the corrupt candidate that he ever was.

    Some will say they can't be authenticated...

    By and large, neither can many of the supposed accusations against Trump, yet the media are running non stop with them.

    I have actually read some of those accusation articles, and what he is being accused of is 'someone told me he doesn't like my kind' ... 'he saw me naked [in a common area dress room where dozens of people were milling about] at a beauty pageant' ... 'he touched me under my skirt' ...

    What is sad, is that the obviousness of this political ploy, timed to come out right before the election, manipulates so easily so many Americans... look how many people are now fully fixated on these accusations, forget the issues on which the entire nation's future hinges... war... economy... supreme court... forget that, those are tough to figure out... but bashing a man for being a pig, oh, that is easy pickings.

    And people wonder why no-one worth a damn is running for the Presidency and we are stuck with Hillary and Trump.

    They've already abandoned all objectivity by refusing to report anything bad about Clinton like her proven corruption, abuse of the Clinton Foundation for laundering bribes, her public versus private positions, history of lying, failures in creating ISIS and not helping Iran's democratic revolution.
    Of course they are going to ignore leaks that show press dinners to coordinate reporting, much less the Project Veritas videos showing that Democrats have organized mass vote fraud. And you know those videos are true, because it was enough for Democrats to fire at least two people involved within a day of the release.

    They are being ignored because that isn't the focus of this election - the focus is on the outrageous, attention-grabbing antics of The Donald. He's been doing an outstanding job making sure to recklessly offend and insult every group that he can think of. Because of this, I can't imagine that he even has very much respect for his supporters who only get louder every time he does something incredibly stupid.

    He's made far too many 'unpresidential' mistakes from the beginning - he's not even a viable option; and it seems as if he has purposefully made himself irrelevant in this election. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear he planned the whole thing to help make sure Hillary gets in there. While on the one hand, I am voting for Hillary and want her to win... I don't like our world being manipulated anymore than anyone else does. If anything is being 'rigged' surrounding this election, it has been that.

    Trump turned this election into a joke a long time ago. If the GOP had chosen a decent candidate - we would probably be talking a lot more about Hillary's alleged pile of sins.

      And yet, even the most differential to the DNC polls show he is still in the running, and is within the error of margin.  And we know how many of those polls said time and again he was going to lose in the primaries... only to win the Rep nomination.

    Because the media is in the corrupt bed with Clinton, they may not actually break the law trying to get their candidate to win. However, the media is doing all it can to downplay anything against Clinton while making sure to make a big deal of anything Trump does, says, or is falsely accused of.

    I personally feel they are hoping the whole wiki leaks thing goes away before any corruption is linked to them. They want Clinton as president.
