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

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, VoxThe 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.

    And yet… I see no mention of anyone in Putin’s or TrumPence’s pockets. Hmmmmm. Vewy Interwesting.

    • danakincaid

      So. Where are the Putin trolls?

    • BluePhoton

      Podesta’s daughter (well, her holding company = 1%) recently got 75,000 shares in a closely-owned Russian company… is that enough in Putin’s pocket?

  • danakincaid

    We also have no “chain of evidence” with these Wikileaks “leaks”, do we? Hmmmm? I could write an email from you, something vile and pedophilic for example, and “leak” it somewhere. That would not be nice. I would not do that, and there would be no real proof it came from you, but people might believe it. People are gullible.

    • Brandon Shields

      Deffinetly a chain of evidence if you read the leaks yourself and not act a dunce/coward by verbally going after someone nice enough to spoon feed you this information. You can even download the “original source” of the email with any individual one of them. Trumps voters know he is not perfect and what has been brought against him has been addressed and is already in the public view. Whereas Hillary voters seem to be completely disconnected from any idea of her truth. Even when the truth is brought to you…you still don’t believe it on the grounds of anything can be falsified. Even these emails with the original sources available for download so you a see who wrote and sent them to podesta and or HRC.

      • danakincaid

        So, Brandon, I steal data from you, run it thru the mill, put it up on a site… That’s EVIDENCE? LOL. Silly child. I could do anything with that.

        • danakincaid

          I could make up fake emails about you and make them say anything.

          • BluePhoton

            Sure… and who do we believe? Politicians or our lyin’ eyes?

      • T. Mohr

        Brandon, I think pride keeps many supposedly intelligent HRC voters from accepting the truth about her. That and the Democrat label they put on themselves as soon as they were able to vote. I was guilty of the same thing for many years. It’s stupid and juvenile but many do it. It’s the us against them mentality. I’m right and you are wrong. Juvenile. Human beings. Some of us get the memo eventually, and some of us don’t. Be glad, you got it.

    This is how they “get away with it.” “They” control the mass media and law enforcement. Since the authorities ARE the perpetrators, they will never prosecute themselves… and since they control the mass media, the majority of the sheep-like people will never know the truth. The people could be led, but that requires mass media. “Alternative media” cannot be mass media. Mass media requires huge capitalization, and they control the money. Alternative media can reach a few million, perhaps, but in a country of 350,000,000 that is nothing, and they infiltrate the alternative media too, to limit it’s effectiveness. And, if they start losing control of the message, all they need to do is make another big 9/11-like disaster, and the people will flock to their masters for protection as we seen happen in 2001 with the Patriot Act.

    The propaganda technique went to a quantum leap as of May 10th, 2012.

    U.S. media is subject and mandated to section 501 of the National Defense Authorization Act. It legalizes a longstanding federal law that made it illegal for the US Department of State to share domestically the internally-authored news stories sent to American-operated outlets broadcasting around the globe.

    In other words they could use propaganda everywhere but here on US soil against Americans. It’s section 501 of the NDAA or the Smith Mundt Modernization Act (HR 5736). It overturns the Smith-Mundt Act. It abolishes the stipulation that the U.S. Had to leave it’s propaganda just overseas. It now allows the government to use propaganda on it’s own citizens. People here criticize Russia, China and North Korea because their media is state run. Well now, since May 10, 2012 the USA’s is too!

    “Movies SHOULD be to entertain NOT to influence. News SHOULD be to inform NOT to spread propaganda. Governments SHOULD be there to assist NOT take over. MAN is here to bring change NOT to sit back and be changed … #WorldWideWakeUp”

    Operation Mockingbird: The CIA and Propaganda

    “About a third of the whole CIA budget went to media propaganda operations… We’re talking about hundreds of millions of dollars a year just for that … close to a billion dollars are being spent every year by the United States on secret propaganda.” ~ Testimony of William Schapp to Congress

        The point is both of the candidates suck. If you don’t understand, especially after reading that, then you’re part of the problem.

      • My2Yen

        The point is, if we can NOT trust the media to report information accurately and without bias, people will start thinking only information coming from the government can be trusted.

  • Teresa Charlene Roberts Oliver

    The thing that keeps flying over some peoples heads is the fact that podesta himself said he was hacked and his emails were stolen! Not one time did he say that these emails were false! If these emails were NOT HIS, then why even go to the press and say his shot was stolen? Why all these lies just to try and make people think they were altered emails!!! Why not just keep your mouth shut and when they came out just say it didn’t come from you and they are fake? But NO, he came out and said they were stolen and then try to get damage control rolling ? And you people believe these emails were altered? Come on now you can’t be that dingy! Or are you blond? I’m blond and I have more smarts than that!

    • T. Mohr

      What’s the old adage about leading a horse to water? I’m telling you, it all comes back to the label ‘D’ for Democrat that people put on themselves at an early age. That immediately puts you into an, us against them mentality, and it carries through your whole life. For some anyway. Some can look up in the night sky and see the stars, but still not see the light. This is what is wrong with the two party system that is the central corrupting influence in this country. It must be brought down and 2016 is the best time to do it. When the call comes to act, don’t be late for the revolution.

    • Robert Alston

      We want a media that is free and independent, that sticks to the journalistic tradition of remaining impartial and exposing the truth, no matter how ugly it is about BOTH candidates. We want a media that serves the interests of the 99% and NOT the 1%ers and their Zionist bankster masters These presstitutes are NOT journalists but nothing more than cheerleaders and propagandists.

    • Guy

      And I think you left your brains in a brown paper sack, so what is wrong with that, considering it isn’t “ILLEGAL?” Frig gen stupid maybe !
      Go ahead shit for brains, open your mouth again, and prove to the world, that you are as dumb as everyone thinks your are, for that incredibly asinine statement !

    • skyp0ckets

      The media basically banished Bernie Sanders to coventry the entire campaign. Even NPR was loathe to mention him unless they were remarking about what a loser he was. The media should not be in anyone’s back pocket, but we know it is too late for that. If you are an HRC fan, then you can be happy about the media bias. But be wary, the media may not always be on the same side you are. Then you will feel the dishonesty in the controlled message.

  • Robert Alston

    The lame stream presstitute media has descended into nothing more than paid hacks who prostitute themselves for what ever Corporate or Zionist lobby group that pays them the most. Long gone has the days of journalistic impartiality or investigative journalism. WikiLeaks is doing what REAL journalists used to do. But no longer. CNN, BBC, CBS et al are nothing more than propaganda shills for the government and Corporate interest groups.

    • Candice White

      Wikileaks are a bunch of criminal who belong in jail with that rapist Assange.

      • comeonnow

        Cant handle the truth? Corroborating emails are being released (no hack) by the State Dept. and from the FBI 302’s….Wow, you actually want to kill the messenger – you folks are really sick in the head…For the first time in modern history (technology meets whistleblowers) citizens are able to see behind the curtain of the elites…Response? Please take it away we love being slaves who are lied to on a regular basis. Wikileaks and other outlets serve as outlets for military and agency whistleblowers who risk their lives and careers to alert the public to criminal action. There is an entire genre of technology products to assist in the effort to protect anonymity. Whonix, Tails, Tor/Onion Project, Quebes…The current administration has hunted down patriotic whistleblowers like animals….but folks like you thrive off of corruption that only benefits the elites – while our standard of living continues to decline..The crazy irony is that Wikileaks and the Russians are getting all of the heat for a sophisticated hack – while Clinton illegally placed classified emails and State Dept emails into a unprotected environment – including mailing a hard disk (laptop) via Fed X and it never reached it’s destination. And then we find out that Pedesta used [email protected] to access his emails. Careless, criminal behavior. They don’t give a hoot because as we see nothing happens to them & they have an entire cadre of idiots who will defend them to the end.

  • These colluded media and their press soldiers have failed America and the rest of the world. Too much harm was done. The trust in the elite culture is gone. http://www.east-west-dichotomy.com/usa-is-going-down/

  • Fairness, neutrality, and journalistic integrity have been kicked down the road side. Worse, those media owners and editors have clearly coerced tens of thousands of their own employers who were Trump supporters. It’s a highly coordinated media inquisition against those American people who believed the government and the media are absolute in cahoot, which now they know for sure they are. http://www.east-west-dichotomy.com/americas-media-are-unfit/

    Look at a map of the United States as it is drawn, showing Red and Blue States representing which are Democrat and Republican in this election cycle. The majority and heart of the nation will be clearly shown as red or Republican, whereas the fringe States will be blue or Democratic., with a few as yellow Nevada and Arizona, as toss up’s.

    The States with the highest populations are mostly Democrats, and States with the least are Republican. The States with the big populations are mostly were the money comes from, and are the majority of the 1%’er’s that is used to support, the Democrats political machine, that is rolling over you ! Hillary dosen’t spend time in Wyoming or Kansas, she goes were the money is, Ca and the East Coast !

    To simplify; You have the minority of the States deciding for the majority, who will be our next President is, with the Heart of our Country marked as Deplorable s, and too stupid to stand on there own two feet !

    The same for the major Media Centers locations, that feed us the propaganda, of what they consider that, they want us to hear, and believe, because they say so !

    The average News Paper is geared to a 5th grade education, as is T.V. New’s Broadcast, they consider that anything higher, and you would not understand it, or be uninterested, because it would not have enough, Sex, Violence and Action, to hold your interest ! So all new’s is watered down to keep you on the hook !

    The greatest lie ever told was, The Devil Convincing The World He Doesn’t Exist !
    Think about it !

    This is not a rant; My first election I voted in was, when Nikon ran for office, and have seen this many times since ! But now it is far worse than before, and the stakes are even higher !

    I am worried about my Country, have fought in it’s wars and and very concerned about the direction it is going if Hillary wins ! She will lead you all into Her Vision of Her “New World Order” along with her other friends, like Soros and that my friends will be the end of our Country, as we know it !

      As long as the Republicans hold the Senate it will just be more of the same-same.

      • Guy

        Unfortunately or Fortunately you are right. Hand Bernie been 20 years younger, I may have voted for him ! Only because he was more inline to my vision of center, than what these two crooks represent !

        Now, I really don’t have much choice any more ! I’ll slit my own wrist befor I vote for her and Trump is hardly likable, with the exception, he is a businessman and not a politician !

    The MSM/government cabal are equally disgusting, corrupt, criminal, and useless. A day of reckoning is needed.

  • Freespirit1

    The list that appears in the accompanying article fuses dark conspiratorial theory with rubbish masquerading as respectability. I don’t know all of the reporters on the list but I’m familiar with more than a few and I think that they have great integrity. They may say things that you might disagree with-that is your prerogative-but I think that more than a few are great reporters/writers/commentators. This country is lucky to have people of such quality. They deserve better than to be put on a list as if they are criminals who should have punishment meted out to them. I don’t think they need to apologize for anything. I think it’s extremely worrisome when so many people cavalierly use a form of guilt by association rather than evaluating people as individuals.
