WikiLeaks List Exposes At Least 65 Media ‘Presstitutes’ Who Colluded to Hide Clinton’s Crimes

clinton-wikileaks-media

Revelations from the Wikileaks release of John Podesta’s emails yet again prove mainstream, corporate media serves as Hillary Clinton’s personal cheerleading squad — and is devoid of any iteration of journalistic integrity.

Thanks to Wikileaks and the Intercept, in fact, we now have a list of no less than 65 mainstream “reporters” whose campaign coverage constitutes propaganda for the Clinton campaign — and no wonder, considering the obscenely lopsided drivel presented by their outlets.

As (actual) journalists Glenn Greenwald and Lee Fang reported on October 9, the Intercept exclusively received documents obtained by the source known as Guccifer 2.0 evidencing Clinton campaign tactics to court journalists portraying the former secretary of state in a positive light.

“As these internal documents demonstrate,” the Intercept reported, “a central component of the Clinton campaign strategy is ensuring that journalists they believe are favorable to Clinton are tasked to report the stories the campaign wants circulated.

“At times, Clinton’s campaign staff not only internally drafted the stories they wanted published but even specified what should be quoted ‘on background’ and what should be described as ‘on the record.’”

One internal strategy document dated January 2015 — months before Clinton officially kicked off her campaign in April — with the curious heading “Earned Media/Next Steps” exposes how the campaign made an albeit infrequent practice of crafting supposed news pieces from beginning to completion.

Under the — not-at-all oblique insult to the fundamentals of journalism — heading “Placing a Story,” the memo’s author wrote:

“As we discussed on our call, we are all in agreement that the time is right [to] place a story with a friendly journalist in the coming days that positions us a little more transparently while achieving the above goals.”

Specifically named as a suggested journalist plant is Maggie Haberman of Politico, whom they note will assist in doing “the most shaping” of the narrative they have in mind.

Haberman, however, is far from the only pro-Clinton media shill. As the Intercept noted, a review of the metadata for one of the obtained documents found it had been penned by campaign communications director, Jennifer Palmieri — who created a list of ostensible pundits and journalists potentially amenable to targeting with the pro-Clinton message.

The Intercept also revealed an R.S.V.P. list of 38 media friendlies invited to a pre-campaign announcement soiree with ‘top campaign aides’ at the home of strategist Joel Benenson last year on April 10, which was “a fully off-the-record gathering designed to impart the campaign’s messaging.”

Although the outlets they represented unsurprisingly included left-leaning MSNBC, Huffington Post, and Politico, the list also includes journalists from the Daily Beast, Vice, Vox, The New Yorker, and even People Magazine.

In the Wikileaks document, the true scope of Clinton campaign skulduggery is revealed in another lengthy guest list for a parallel function hosted by Mr. Leaked Emails, himself, John Podesta, on April 9 last year.

Press secretary Jesse Ferguson — who authored both lists — wrote to the top members of Clinton’s team:

“Here is the current RSVP list to the Thursday Night (4/9) dinner at Podesta’s. As a reminder, this is with the 25 reporters more closely following HRC (aka the future bus).”

Although the collusion between the media and both the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee has graciously trickled out thanks to leaked documents from Wikileaks and others, these lists of named journalists willing to cross the line between journalism and campaigning are shameful — if not helpful tools to know with certainty whose reporting is garbage.

In fact, besides obliterating any previous claims of unbiased journalism made by the once-prestigious media institutions dotting these lists, the names and practices described prove mainstream media is effectively moot — by its own hand.

    It’s good to have all their names. I bet the armed bodyguard industry is growing!!!

    • Eleanor Cummings

      You can bet it is growing in quick panic. They know if this all comes to ANY kind of war, it is they,who arethe parties responsible for causing and enabling it. They know they and their families would be considered ‘fair game” and no matter where they try to hide, they WILL be found. How many Nazi war criminals escaped the Wrath of Justice?

  • Of all the turds that made the list, I am highly disappointed to read Brianna Keilar’s
    name, but of course, I shall give her the benefit of the doubt, as I maintain that she is
    only protecting her source of income, if even that is a worthy excuse. Therefore, we
    have to hold those responsible, accountable, commencing at the top, and that means
    indicting this worthless Black turd of a POS of a Tar-Baby of a Muslim POTUS and his
    girlfriend, George Soros, the former and still, NAZI collaborator during WW2 in his
    native country of Hungary, where this Communist mutt joined a group of NAZI thugs to
    evict JEWS from their homes and to confiscate their property for Adolf Hitler and the
    Third Reich. I am surprised by now, that any group of patriotic citizens have not
    stormed the White House gates to get rid of this worthless Black POS of a Communist,
    Anarchist, Marxist, Socialist, Criminal and Muslim, in mirroring the 1789 French
    peasants whom grabbed their muskets and pitchforks and stormed the Paris Bastille
    (prison) and arrested their worthless King and Queen. The current king and Queen
    of the United States are currently residing in the White House. Hint, hint, hint, hint!!!
    The sooner these turds are removed from the White House, Donals Trump can have
    the entire structure, fumigated to get rid of the political stench that has been accumu-
    lating since 2009, if you follow. The Bible has maintained that this worthless Black
    POS of a Muslim POTUS, will not finish his second term. Keep your fingers crossed.

  • The Clinton’s and the worthless Black turd from Kenya of a POS of a token Tar-Baby
    of a Muslim POTUS, are in a classification all by themselves: “CEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY.”

    Just look at today. CNN and ABC (Stephanopoulos) asked the same exact question at different times. “Your backers are questioning why would you take time out of your schedule to go to a ribbon cutting ceremony when you should be on the campaign trail.” I thought Trump answered the question smartly. I have been to multiple events yesterday, I am going to 3 more today after this. I built this hotel below budget and ahead of schedule. Why shouldn’t I take an hour to go to this ceremony. Hillary goes to a Adelle concert and everyone says isn’t that wonderful. I go to events in front of thousands and get criticized for taking an hour by the media. Now you are going to tell me this wasn’t coordinated by Hillary’s campaign and the DNC? 2 reporters from 2 different organizations that normally fight for ratings ask the same question.

  • rueangel

    Ummm,…
    Would it be considered to be ,..’Anti Semitic’,..of me to point out that the entire , so called, “mainstream” media is owned & operated by members of the International Zio.Jew Criminal Cabal,.?

    And might I suggest, that, ALL news coverage is slanted in such a way as to benefit this International Zio/Jew Criminal Cabal in furthering their, ongoing, conspiracy to achieve a ,..’One World’,.. government, which will be dominated by World Jewry,..?

    It is well known that a lot of people in the press of various levels are married to Washington insiders, politicians, celebrities, and each other. They buy each other off. It’s disgusting.
