It’s no secret that America’s Liberal Mainstream media is a propagandist arm for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign with odes to North Korea on just how government owned and controlled our information is. If this election has proven nothing else, it has proven that mainstream journalism in America is dead. So, color me not surprised when Wikileaks reveals that the Liberal Mainstream media donates 27-1 more money to Hillary than to the Donald Trump campaign. Fair and balanced you say?

NOT hardly!

The difference between the two is simply staggering and lends credence to the “theory” that Hillary has BOUGHT the media’s support and that they act more like a “SuperPAC” for her than reporters.

According to Wikileaks, John Podesta’s emails reveal that Hillary wined and dined multiple key members of the mainstream media off-the-record at a private, off-the-record gathering at the New York home of Joel Benenson, the chief campaign strategist for Hillary Clinton, two days before she announced her candidacy in 2015.  The guest list was limited to reporters who were expected to cover Hillary while on the campaign trail.

The email thread begins with Jesse Ferguson, the campaign’s Deputy National Press Secretary and Senior Spokesman, describing the venues and target audience of each gathering:

We wanted to make sure everyone on this email had the latest information on the two upcoming dinners with reporters. Both are off-the-record.


1) Thursday night, April 9th at 7:00p.m. Dinner at the Home of John Podesta… This will be with about 20 reporters who will closely cover the campaign (aka the bus).

2) Friday night, April 10th at 6:30p.m. Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvre at the Home of Joel Benenson… This is with a broader universe of New York reporters.

That “broader universe of New York reporters; Ferguson mentions included several top news anchors for network and cable channels.  Most of whom RSVP’d as “YES” for an appearance.  Unbiased, investigative journalism?  BAH!

From ABC: Cecilia Vega, David Muir, Diane Sawyer (who could only stay for 30 minutes), and George Stephanopoulos.

From CBS News: Norah O’Donnell.

From CNN: Brianna Keilar, Gloria Borger, John Berman, and Kate Bolduan.

From MSNBC: Alex Wagner and Rachel Maddow. (“TRYING”)

From NBC: Savannah Guthrie.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC and  “Yes” respondent to the Hillary shindig also worked for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign.  He was a Senior Adviser to the President during Bill’s first term in the White House. Of course, Stephanopoulos NEVER discloses this fact when reporting on the 2016 Clinton campaign for ABC News.

Jeff Zucker and Phil Griffin, the presidents of CNN and MSNBC, respectively were both invited. Zucker declined and Griffin RSVPed “yes.” Wikileaks’ release of emails from the Democratic National Committee showed then-DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz scheduled or attempted to schedule private meetings with both executives, presumably to get Hillary an inside track on the Presidential campaign. Conflict of interest anyone?

It seems CNBC’s John Harwood, moderator of a 2015 presidential debate, emailed Podesta frequently.  He was practically begging for approval and access to Hillary in her bid for the presidency. Politico’s Glenn Thrush also emailed Podesta frequently with bids for access. On Monday, an email released by Wikileaks revealed a particularly humiliating incident where Thrush sent Podesta a passage from an upcoming article for his personal approval. “Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote. “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this… Tell me if I fucked up anything.” Since when did journalists and the media send their pieces to the subject of said piece for approval before publishing? Is this a Public Relations campaign? Or is this journalism?

Sandra Sobieraj Westfall, Washington Bureau Chief at PEOPLE magazine, boasted two days after this confab that stories on Clinton’s campaign were generating “absolutely off the charts” traffic about what Hillary was up to.



The full RSVP list for Benenson’s gathering is shown in an attachment on a separate email:

This is an off-the-record cocktails with the key national reporters, especially (though not exclusively) those that are based in New York. Much of the group includes influential reporters, anchors and editors.

The goals of the dinner include:
(1) Give reporters their first thoughts from team HRC in advance of the announcement
(2) Setting expectations for the announcement and launch period
(3) Framing the HRC message and framing the race
(4) Enjoy a Frida night drink before working more

TIME/DATE: As a reminder, this is called for 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 10th .

There are several attendees – including Diane Sawyer – who will be there promptly at 6:30 p.m. but have to leave by 7 p.m.

FOOD: This will include cocktails and passed hours devours.
