The American media tried to manipulate the 2016 presidential election. As evidence, an email written by CNN consultant and Democratic Party National Committee (DNC) operative Donna Brazile states:
"Subject: One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash"
"Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint. Folks, I did a service project today. It's so tragic. And what's worse, some homes have not been tested and it's important to encourage seniors to also get tested. "
The email was sent to multiple Clinton staffers before Hillary Clinton’s debate against Bernie Sanders hosted by CNN. It would let Hillary prepare for a known debate question while Sanders would remain unaware of his debate questions. This would make Sanders appear less prepared for the debate than Hillary thus undermining Sanders credibility as a leader.
During a 2016 California press Conference, the New York Times asked presidential candidate Bernie Sanders “What do you say to women that say you staying in the race is sexist because it could get in the way of what could be the first female president?" The New York Times was trying to remove Sanders from the Democratic race so that Hillary could obtain the Democratic presidential nomination.
CNN made efforts to undermine another Hillary opponent, Donald Trump. The news organization coordinated with the DNC on how to question Trump during interviews. An email from DNC Research Director Lauren Dillon to fellow DNC colleagues states:
"Wolf Blitzer [CNN reporter] is interviewing Trump on Tues ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed. Please send me thoughts by 10:30 AM tomorrow."
DNC staffer Kelly Roberts sent back 11 different questions she and others had composed. They can be seen here.
Another email reveals an "off the record" dinner party held at John Podesta's (chairman of Hillary's presidential campaign) home for DNC officials and news reporters. The secret event's purpose was to coordinate election strategy between the DNC and news outlets so that Hillary Clinton would have a better chance of winning the presidency. Reporters from the Associated Press, NBC, The New York Times, Reuters and several other news organizations attended. The complete list is here.
Lastly, it is the media who is trying to delegitimize a democratically elected president. Both Reuters and NBC are trying to delegitimize Trump's presidency by falsely claiming Russian President Putin manipulated US elections. Their 'report' insulates Trump was placed in power by a foreign government rather than elections. Another example is a recent article written by the Associated Press in cooperation with YahooNews. The article tries to undermine the president's credibility by focusing on a single sentence Trump spoke. He said "Korea actually used to be a part of China" The article claims Trump enraged ally South Korea with an 'historically inaccurate' statement
President Trump, however, was correct. During the Han Empire, Korea was indeed part of China. After a war in 108 B.C., the Chinese border was extended south to around the current North Korean - South Korean border. According to "A History of East Asia" by Charles Holcombe, the area would remain under Chinese rule for about 4 centuries.
NBCNews created fake news, on April 20, 2017 in an attempt to undermine Trump. The news created was that Venezuelan unrest was the result of a Venezuelan government oil company donating $500K to Donald Trump's inauguration. (See photo below). The reality was Venezuelan unrest was due to that nation’s socialist Supreme Court stripping congress of its last powers, a decision it later reversed.
Mainstream journalists believe feminist icon, Hillary Clinton should be president regardless of the election's outcome. The fact that she had no intention of representing American men is of little consequence to them.
Reuters recent article continues the media's cover-up of journalists' election meddling. It was the American media that attempted to manipulate US elections. It is the American media that is trying to delegitimize a democratically elected president.
