Everything we've seen suggests that every person at the top of the Democrat organization is a proven liar: The Clintons, Donna Brazile, Podesta, Debbie Waterboy-Schmutz. Here we have the head of the DNC, in her capacity as a CNN commentator, getting privileged access and then dishonestly sharing questions ahead of debates with Hillary. The debate is rigged if one candidate can prep for specific questions.

Cheating is a way of life for these people.
Gets It.

The issue is that it's not just Clinton that's an issue with it comes to subjective journalism. This isn't a new thing. Journalism has been a "means to the end" kind of scenario since long before either of us were born. There has been historical bias in journalism all the way back to the 1600s. It's only in the past 50-60 years that people felt that journalism had some type of "integrity". Nowadays, even those who try their hardest to remain unbias is accused of being biased. For example, look at CNN (which people jokingly call "Clinton News Network") - while I'm not stating that they're objective in any way, shape, or form I don't think the moniker is appropriate considering how often you see Trump-based headlines (good or bad) being displayed on their site and their channel. As the phrase goes, "There's no such thing as bad publicity."

RE: The video you've posted -
Mob mentality occurs on both sides (it's a human function due to our instinctual logic). People love to hate someone, whether it's Clinton, Trump, or some random person on a forum. This is a side-effect of how the media, momentum, and paranoia has caused both sides to respond overall. It's not a good thing, it's just what happens in times like these (look up previous civil rights movements, like the Selma to Montgomery marches, Birmingham Campaign, or similar moments in US history). The only difference is that we're repeating history rather than learning from it (yet another symptom of what's known as the "human condition").

On-Topic:

At least CNN was aware at the conflict and decided to take action against it, rather than just letting it linger. Whether or not it's for the better is still an unknown scenario. For all we know, many more (on any news outlet) are in the same precarious state but haven't been outed/caught yet.

Looks like she knows that the Clinton case might actually go somewhere and is smart enough to realize that now is the best time to fade away to minimize damage to her reputation.

anyone got a list of all the news media that are in bed with the Clinton Family ?

CNN
Politico
MSNBC

what else? i forgot.. there is a long list of them


Washington Post for running anti-Trump and proHillary articles 24/7
PBS News for blatantly censoring Jill Stein (an attempt to make her look foolish compared to Hillary)


PBS Newshour ?

they tried to stay neutral as much as they can from what i noticed

but they are a bit biased as well

professional/objective journalism is a thing of the past

now a day they don't just report the news.. they are giving their opinion and telling you what you should think on the matter

this is how the news is in communist countries.. .better yet North Korea

so hope they don't cross that line!

just report the dang news as how it happened and let the public decide for themselves what to do and who to vote for

stop trying to brainwash the public and covering the news that worth reporting

if they are showing videos of Trump saying "grab them by the pussy"

then include videos of "grab her by the ass twice" from a clinton staffer along with videos of inciting violence, voter fraud, etc... -- the language in some of those videos-- well that's how people talk when there's no camera or in front of the public

i hate having to go to a small/independent news outlet to get actual news of how something happened because they censored or not disclosed it on the main stream news outelts

The only pro Trump media outlets are: Breitbart, and Info Wars at this point. Fox News might be a Conservative network, but they go back and forth with liking him and hating him almost every other day. CNN, WaPo, NY Times and MSNBC are pro-Clinton, and there doesn't really seem to be any sort of neutral or objective news station or media outlet anymore. Everyone is presenting their personal opinions as facts, which is why I don't even bother watching the news anymore other than to get the weather and hear about sports.

Maybe it's time to treat the 1st like we do the 2nd, get caught lying as a reporter, you go to jail for awhile, then have your 1st amendment rights removed.

Its got to be shitty to be so young and learn that the supreme court already basically said "the news" can get away with as little as 30% actual truth, or something of the sort. makes no sense? 'course it dudnt!

then again Lincoln tossed reporters in jail that wrote about his suspending habeus corpus and just jailing people because he felt like it, anyone that wrote against what the north was doing to the south - but people dont normally remember Lincoln and how he broke the constitution.

read up on the economic happenings of the civil war. enlightening.

We know Hillary is crooked AF. We know the game is rigged in her favor.

The mystery that remains is how far in denial does someone need to be to actually support Hillary. I mean, don't support Trump. That's cool. BUT FUCK, seriously, wake up. Don't support her.

It's like watching people get conned, everyone around them is telling them it's a con man, and they're just like, "Who, Hillary? Nah, she couldn't hurt a fly."

So sucketh the two party system. Unfortunately, not voting for your personal lesser of two evils is effectively voting for the greater of your two personal evils. It sucks but its been this way for a looong time and there's never enough will to do anything about it in the off season.

I would comfortably wager that a good portion voting for Hillary are only voting against Trump and visa versa.

I never cared for her. Hopefully they can find someone better to replace her, but given CNN's general level of competence... somehow I doubt it.


I think they just say the party line, no matter who is on set.

The thought of Hillary being president of the united states - when she / they already have such control over the media, and are pushing to censor the internet a-la-china, terrifies me. Honestly, if she wins, we can kiss any chance we ever had of knowing of or having power over our fates goodbye - via executive order.

I guess we can kiss our asses goodbye while we're at it, because we've got way too many enemies to go around being a nuclear-bully.

In a real democracy, there wouldn't be partisans at all. It's always made me wonder why they push the democratic process the way they do in foreign countries, when we don't actually use it here.

the DNC is burning through people nowadays. Good to see both parties implode equally.

But that's also what you get for feeding your candidate the debate questions.


Trump literally Triumphed over the republicans and the party is in a state of confusion, unsure where to go now.

When Trump gets elected the democratic party will burn to the ground and hopefully a cleaner party rises from its ashes. The republicans are going to either keep rejecting Trump and lose 75% of their voter base or they are going to be forced to change. I'm loving this.

Something to think about, back when Ted Turner owned CNN.
