But “Don’t Tell Anyone I Did This.” ~ Glenn Thrush, Politco’s Chief Political Correspondent
As if there was any doubt at this point that the media is fully in bed with the Clinton campaign, Glenn Thrush, Politco’s Chief Political Correspondent, decided to make it crystal clear in the following email to Podesta back in April 2015 in which he admits that he has become a political hack. The email below from Thrush was sent to get guidance related to an article he published the very next day entitled “Hillary’s Big-Money Dilemma.”
Of course you will not see any of this on the boob tube, the moving picture box for dummies. You will have to search for it. But it is still there in plain sight.
Trump is 100% correct when he says that the “election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary.”
The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary – but also at many polling places – SAD

Of course, as The Center for Public Integrity recently pointed out, “journalists” aren’t just making “in-kind” contributions to the Clinton campaign, they’re donating real cash as well. In fact, according the their review of political contributions made by people working in various media outlets, 96% were found to go to Hillary while only 4% accrued to the benefit of the Trump campaign.
Conventional journalistic ethics holds that reporters and editors are referees on politics’ playing field — bastions of neutrality who mustn’t root for Team Red or Team Blue, either in word or deed.
But when every big industry and every government agency is on the same side of the boat and “the media” has itself become a prominent storyline, several hundred news professionals have joined Team Hillary and aligned themselves with Clinton by personally donating money to her.
In all, people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism — have combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns.
Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton: About 430 people who work in journalism have, through August, combined to give about $382,000 to the Democratic nominee, the Center for Public Integrity’s analysis indicates.
Meanwhile, none of the media collusion has been quite so disturbing as the following example in which DNC Chair Donna Brazile was provided the exact wording of a CNN debate question to the Clinton campaign well in advance of a debate. And they admit it happens fairly often for democrats:
With this level of blatant media collusion and corruption it is truly amazing that any Republican candidate has won the office of the presidency in the past several decades.
