Leaked documents show the DNC working with Hillary Clinton against her primary opponents and the MSM working with the DNC against Republicans
Leaked Democratic National Committee documents prove that Bernie Sanders was right when he claimed the system was rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton. This, of course, is not exactly earth-shattering news because anyone watching the way the Democratic Party used the superdelegates could see the fix is in.
However these documents do show us how the DNC was working with the mainstream media both to ensure Hillary Clinton was the nominee and to make sure the mainstream media knew how to deal with the Republican contenders.
Here is more:
The document shows that Clinton and the DNC have been working in together against Sanders from at least the spring of 2015.
The document, dated May 26, 2015, shows that the DNC had already chosen Clinton as the party’s expected nominee and was going to work with reporters from mainstream outlets to downplay Clinton’s negatives and to highlight her positives throughout the course of the primary.
The document was created on same day that Sanders announce his candidacy.
The document also shows the DNC working against former Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb—who all launched candidacies of their own—and also against Vice President Joe Biden, who was considering his own candidacy.
Of course the DNC had no idea the type of support Bernie Sanders would eventually gather and while we knew Hillary Clinton was the chosen one this news will not sit well with the Senator from Vermont’s hardcore supporters who already feel like their candidate has been cheated.
Now let us move on to the part of the story I find most interesting: we conservatives have been talking about media bias for years but the left has always downplayed it (that is until recently when Bernie Sanders’ supporters finally began to understand what we were talking about) as a figment of our imagination but this leaked document clearly shows us how the Democratic Party is working with the mainstream media in order to shape the election. Here is more:
Reporter Outreach: Working through the DNC and others, we should use background briefings, prep with reporters for interviews with GOP candidates, off-the-record conversations and oppo pitches to help pitch stories with no fingerprints and utilize reporters to drive a message,” the document reads
You will note the memo mentioned prepping reporters before they interviewed Republican candidates not prepping the reporters before they interviewed Democratic candidates. We all know that the two parties and the mainstream media agree to guidelines before they let their candidates participate in an interview but here we have an example of the collusion between the Democratic Party and what can now best be described as the Ministry of Propaganda.
