“It’s one of the great political phenomenons. The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media, the press,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump warned supporters at a rally recently.
And there’s no denying it anymore – a new report proves just how incredibly biased the mainstream media really is.
This election cycle proves the bias is worse than even the media’s harshest critics in the past ever thought possible.
Trump isn’t the only one sounding the alarm.
A damning new report shows how the deeply connected the press is to Hillary Clinton… and not just in the obvious ways, with biased left-wing reporters dominating the news industry in print, online, and on TV.
There’should an actual top-down order from industry bosses to their workers.
And it’s one that’s been delivered loud and clear in newsrooms: Push Clinton… or else.
Too incredible to believe? Don’t take our word for it.
At least three major media organizations “have now ordered their employees to destroy Trump,” Bill O’Reilly of Fox News announced this week.
“I can’t say who they are right now because I don’t have it nailed down,” he said. “But I am 100% convinced that these media organizations have actually put out that if you support Trump, your career is done here.”
O’Reilly may be a conservative voice. But he’s a fiercely independent one, and unlike the pampered media lefties fawning over Clinton, he’s nobody’s lapdog.
He’s not afraid to ask tough-but-fair questions of anyone, including Trump… and not afraid to criticize the candidate right to his face, either.
So if O’Reilly says he’s heard this, you can bet he’s not pulling that out of thin air.
Hacked emails released by WikiLeaks show how the Clinton campaign would offer exclusives and other access to puppy-dog reporters.
“We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed,” one memo said of former Politico reporter Maggie Haberman, who is now with the very same New York Times hellbent on destroying Trump.
In another instance, CNN leaked a question from a Democratic town hall debate to a Clinton friend before the event.
“From time to time I get the questions in advance,” boasted Donna Brazile, who then worked at CNN and is now acting head of the Democratic National Committee.
And of course there was the evidence just last month… when Clinton collapsed in public, and the media barely showed it.
Meanwhile, an 11-year-old lewd recording of Trump gets 24-hour coverage.
Trump himself has pointed out the obvious, telling supporters yesterday that the media is now part of the Clinton propaganda machine.
“The corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They’re a political special interest no different from any lobbyist or financial entity with a total political agenda,” he said. “And their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy. For them, it’s a war and for them, nothing at all is out of bounds.”
Trump’s been proven right before. All you have to do to see him proven right in this case is turn on the TV.
