Huffington Post, CNN, AP Colluded With Hillary Clinton Campaign For Puff Pieces
(Last Updated On: October 13, 2016)

The mainstream media is supposed to show some sign of unbiased reporting during Presidential elections. The idealistic view of the media’s role during election season is to inform readers, viewers, watchers and onlookers with the most information possible about the candidates vying for the votes during the primaries. However, during this election season the media has been anything but impartial.

Wikileaks promised additional e-mails that could affect voters’ perception heading into the November 8th showdown. Vessel News posted up an e-mail from one of the Wikileaks documents that was dated July 1st, 2015 that did a round-up of news stories about Hillary Clinton.

The entire e-mail was forward looking about puff pieces that had yet to run. This included a piece from Lisa Lerer from the Associated Press (AP) doing a story about women’s and family issues that Hillary Clinton would be focusing on throughout her campaign, as well as Jodi Enda from CNN doing a long-form story about Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. They also had several stories in the pipeline from Politico.

This may not seem like much, but if you contrast the e-mail with the one from May 13th, 2015, you would see that the campaign basically was just doing a round-up of news that was posted in relation to Clinton’s campaign, or news that had already been published. The July 1st e-mail was about content set to be published way down the line.

Now it’s not uncommon for campaign managers to work with press for statements, sound bites and clips to use in stories, but having access to articles set to run well ahead of time – all of which are designed to be strikingly positive and help the momentum of Clinton’s campaign – seems more like coordinated promotion than neutral reporting.

In fact, a Huffington Post contributor, Frank Islam, wrote to the Hillary Clinton campaign chair pledging full support to Clinton on April 15th, 2015, writing…

“I am committed to make sure she is elected as the next President of United States. I am reaching out to my friends to raise money for her campaign. Please let me know if I can be of any service to you.”

Frank lets Hillary’s chair, John Podesta, know that they have various promotional pieces running on the Huffington Post in favor of Clinton, linking to the various pieces in the e-mail.

Technically, Frank is no stranger to supporting Clinton, making it known in an NDTV segment back on May 12th, 2016.

Frank’s work for the Huffington Post consists of various economic topics and plenty of Trump bashing, as evident on his author’s profile page, where articles like “The Mind of a Trump Supporter” pop up along with “Donald Trump” Baby, Bully and Buffoon?”, amongst many others.

Previously, Huffington Post actually fired a writer for mentioning Hillary’s health. David Seaman was restricted from accessing his account at the Post after linking to a video that questioned Hillary’s health after various odd episodes of the Presidential candidate appeared throughout various media clips.

The leaked e-mails also further revealed that the Democratic National Comittee had thoroughly plotted to usurp any electoral ground that Bernie Sanders, a former Democratic hopeful, tried to gain in an attempt to secure the nomination from the Committee.

In a brazenly nonchalant e-mail Mark Siegel writes to Tamera Luzzatoo, the Pew Charitable Trusts managing director, about how to undermine and subvert Sanders from ever securing the DNC nomination, with Siegel writing on March 20th, 2016

“So here’s my idea. Bernie and his people have been bitching about super delegates and the huge percentage that have come out for Hillary. Since the original idea was to bring our elected officials to the convention ex-officio”


“[…] why not throw Bernie a bone and reduce the super delegates in the future to the original draft of members of the House and Senate, governors and big city mayors, eliminating the DNC members who are not State chairs or vice-Chairs.”


“So if we “give” Bernie this in the Convention’s rules committee, his people will think they’ve “won” something from the Party Establishment. And it functionally doesn’t make any difference anyway. They win. We don’t lose. Everyone is happy. “

Siegel’s plan was forwarded to the rest of the DNC, who as we all know, proceeded to rig the Democratic National Convention to ensure that Sanders would never win.

    Fuckin’ mainstream media.

    Meanwhile people are finding leaks that strongly imply strategic political assassinations. Not surprising. You know the media will ignore those, too. Easy to do, when regular people don’t realize that the value of one life is nothing when billions of dollars are at stake.

  • Alistair

    Today I was in shock, because the BBC news at six mentioned about anti trump media for Clinton.

    By trump supporters, it about time that the BBC did something right.

    • C G Saturation

      I think it’s worrying because it may mean they have something else planned that will make the bias and leaks irrelevant.

  • DRiggs

    There’s nothing real about her campaign. Fake stories, Fake opinions, Fake Twitter “storms”, Fake questioners at rallies, Fake interviews (with questions provided in advance), Fake Trump “victims”, conveniently paraded out a few weeks before election. Fake Fake Fake. She’s as fake as a 3-dollar bill and so is the Lamestream Media that’s promoting her.

  • durka durka

    We suspected all that already. Funny thing is the trump pussy fingerer tactic might work, women is the only thing our society has to defend with their lives.

    But still would you prefer a crazy man in the white house or some insidious corrupt wall street scumbags.

    This is a cynical attempt to make you stop caring about ethics and corruption and make you choose your “systemic” candidate just to avoid a economic collapse. According to the Dutch finance minster all countries in the EU are in a better economic state except one…..(Greece), everyone is bating on Trump fucking everything up in USA and while people in this corner of the internet think that the problem is Hillary, they are face palming and looking usa with disgust because of trump, that guy does not need a character assassination campaign to look bad and as far as the world cares he is the biggest problem in usa right now.

    Which is why i say you need to give the finger to both of them and vote for third parties. Rest of the world is doing it.

      I really don’t care what the rest of the world thinks. Trump has been a figure in our media for decades that everyone was fine with until now. Anyone legitimately challenging the political establishment of our country would be getting the same treatment as him right now. Ron Paul got the KKK accusations. Assange got the false rape accusations. This is just their playbook. Do you somehow not remember all of gamergate being called KKK worse than ISIS?

      Hillary definitely doesn’t have a single bit of ground to stand on when it comes to defending women. She laughed about getting the rapist of a twelve year old off with only a few months served. She takes money from countries that she knows funds ISIS(this was in the email leaks). Her being some champion of women is a pathetic joke.

      In terms of third parties who would we vote for? Johnson is awful, his policies are basically those of Clinton just without all the scandals. Stein is the type that’s full progressive stack. Even taking third parties into account I still prefer Trump.

      • And also, people voting for a 3rd party at this stage will all but gift the Presidency to Hillary Clinton.

        Durka durka either doesn’t know this OR he’s a closet Clinton supporter

          Well, he hates republicans.

      • C G Saturation

        I would probably vote for Nigel Farage if he was a valid option.

      • Mr.Towel

        At this moment right now, third party is for idealists.

        It’s very true that the Two-Party system is stupid, nobody denies that, it needs to die.

        But you won’t kill this system by simply telling people to vote third party or to simply believe that if “just enough people get conscious of it we can all fly”. Cultural changes doesn’t happen like that, they do have a Point of no Return in one place or another but cultural revolutions always happens in slow gradual changes that happens inside a long time frame. We’re speaking of years and millions of dollars in campaigns. Even the MSM would not have enough power of influence to change that in a small timeframe. Casting your vote to third party right now is giving a vote to Hillary (by spreading your vote between many candidates instead of strengthening just one, while the left will undoubtedly all support Hillary as one big unified group), which is obviously much worse than Trump as far as freedom is concerned. Trump doesn’t come from the Self-righteous moralists segment of the Republicans, he comes from the old white money and he is not a moralist himself. Further than that, the republican party is now much divided by different segments rather than just the traditionalists of the past. There is very few evidence to support the claim that Trump would be worse for cultural freedom than Hillary.

      I don’t think Trump is “crazy” like people say. Everything I’ve seen him say makes sense, he’s just over-the-top and blunt. Dilbert guy says Trump is “pacing” by intentionally going too far and then scaling back. But regular people just get offended and rage like little babies.

      What I do know for sure is that Hillary is a terrible person who is corrupt as fuck and that her getting the nomination is what the assholes screwing us want. Literally everyone who has fucked us (the SJWs, etc) love Hillary. So anyone but Hillary is probably a good bet.

      At the same time, I don’t quite understand the significance of “president”. The president alone doesn’t have free reign to decide everything. And this could still all be one big farce.

  • Mr.Towel

    That’s the confirmation of something we all knew already, mainstream media is biased as hell and working together to control the public perception of the candidates and win the election.

  • anopolis

    It’s crazy insane how apathetic half our country has become, where you’d think there’d be millions of people calling for blood and heads to roll, fires starting under asses to get other asses…just standard politics…they either don’t care or giggle in blind support for the underhanded nature their presidential nominee has cut out ethics from the platform on which to stand. If we don’t stop all this nonsense now, imagine what it’ll be like in 30 years. 1984 indeed, I’m going to lie to your face and if you don’t 100% believe me, I’ll throw you in jail to be reeducated.

      The sad reality? This is not even a joke.

        I shant give up hope though fellas, here we are a bunch of nobodies..Mr. Nemo as it were…well…a Mr. Nemo…just one, is all it takes to change the world…usually by dying and becoming a martyr…but the good news is some poor sap can change the outcome of all this by having a really really bad day!!

    • durka durka

      Actually its gonna get worse everyone will be utterly cynical of anything in the future, morals will disappear and later on people will not bother voting anymore and states will be weakened and corporations will take over.

      • C G Saturation

        I’ve been wondering if that is intentional.

  • Reaper of Salt

    This whole presidential election is just ONE. BIG. MEME.

    Bleh, wake me when hell freezes over.

  • Hawk Hopper

    Oh, it’s that cartoon frog that’s the real problem. Not the “journalistic” corruption, bias, lies, etc.
