WikiLeaks’ 10 Most Damning Clinton Emails that Prove Mainstream Media is Scripted and Controlled

clinton-msm-wikileaksBy Jay Syrmopoulos

With information coming out of WikiLeaks at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average person to keep up with the many bombshell revelations being exposed.  This is happening so much that the most damning evidence is ending up as background noise in the 24-hour election news cycle without ever making it into the mainstream news.

On October 7th, 2016, WikiLeaks publish thousands of emails belonging to John Podesta’s private email archives. More emails have been released in the days that followed. Podesta is Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign Chairman. He previously served as Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama.

The Podesta emails give insight into why there has been such little fanfare in the mainstream media regarding many of the most damning allegations against Clinton.

The fact that most of the newsworthy information contained in the emails is not being reported by the corporate media is indicative of the incestuous relationship between the mainstream media and the Clinton campaign – and is on full display in the Podesta emails.

While there are dozens of bombshell revelations contained within the emails – including transcripts of speeches to Wall St. banks that Clinton had refused to release, hidden policy positions, and evidence of collusion with brutal regimes – the most damning is the collusion and control of the U.S. media on display in the emails.

Essentially, the media has been weaponized as a means of controlling public opinion by propagandizing the American people. World renowned academic Noam Chomsky, in his book Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, Chomsky — detailed how U.S. media frequently serve as an errand boy for U.S. corporate, military and imperial interests.

Chomsky forwarded the idea of what he called a “propaganda model.” Although the book was written in 1988, it speaks precisely to what is currently taking place and clearly revealed  in the Podesta emails.

The media serve, and propagandize on behalf of, the powerful societal interests that control and finance them. The representatives of these interests have important agendas and principles that they want to advance, and they are well positioned to shape and constrain media policy. – Chomsky

With knowledge of what is currently transpiring, here are the ten most damning Clinton emails regarding the media’s collusion with her presidential campaign, with hotlinks to the original WikiLeaks release.

1. Clinton Staff hosts private “off-the-record cocktail party” with 38 “influential” reporters, journalists, editors, and anchors (from 16 different mainstream media outlets including CNN, NBC, CBS, NYT, MSNBC, and more) with the stated goal of “framing the race.”

2. Donna Brazile (CNN contributor at the time, and current DNC Chairman now) leaked CNN town hall questions to Hillary Clinton’s staff prior to the debate.

3. Clinton campaign and the New York Times coordinating attack strategy against Trump.

4. Glen Thrush, POLITICO’s chief political correspondent and senior staff writer for POLITICO Magazine, sends John Podesta an article for his approval. Writes: “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this. Tell me if I fucked up anything.”

5. Huffington Post contributor, Frank Islam, writes to John Podesta in an email titled “My blogs in the Huffington Post”, says “I am committed to make sure she is elected the next president.” “Please let me know if I can be of any service to you.”

6. Clinton staffer “Placing a story” with Politico / New York Times: “place a story with a friendly journalist” “we have a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico” “we should shape likely leaks in the best light for HRC.”

7. John Podesta receiving drafts of New York Times articles before they’re published.

Clinton staff “placing a story with a friendly at the AP (Matt Lee or Bradley Klapper).”

More media collusion: NYT and AP “helpful” to Clinton campaign.

8. Clinton staff colluding with New York Times and Wall Street Journal to paint Hillary’s economic policies in a “progressive” light.

9. CNBC panelist colluding with John Podesta on what to ask Trump when he calls in for an interview.

10. Clinton staff appearing to control the release times of Associated Press articles.

The reality revealed in these emails is one of media collusion with powerful interests, which only serve to keep the American people in the dark about what is actually transpiring. The exact opposite of transparency.

Please share this article to wake people up to the fact that their news is scripted by powerful entities as a means of influencing people’s perceptions!

  1. “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” Abraham Lincoln

    • Hahaha. Lincoln was one of the biggest liars ever who subverted the Constitution, suspended the writ of habeas corpus, and imprisoned thousands of journalists and newspaper owners for telling the truth.

  2. “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.” — Edward Louis James Bernays _Propaganda_ 1928

    I recall at some point researching and reading something alleged to have been one of the older fundamental C.I.A training manuals. Not sure it was what it was alleged but it seems more credible in hindsight. It stated that control of media was key to everything. Through media you can influence religion, through religion you get education, through education you get finance, through finance you seize the State.

    This seems to make sense too. Religion for its part has always seemed keen to rely upon “mystery plays” to moralize to the masses with its opioid superstitions and fear. Children are brought up in religious faith/s of their parents, educated/indoctrinated then into the Cult-ure of the State society. Being educated no longer means having capability for critical thought, only given Pavlovian conditioning enough to be a useful idiot/useless eater. While people are so poorly educated they never notice the banks perusing war on them via capital, currency, debt. By the time the babes fall from the boughs and awaken, it’s too late as the State now belongs to new masters, same as the old Master.

    • Operation Mockingbird spawned in the 50s, long before many of us were even born, was, no doubt, used to cover the JFK assassination. Before that there was the longstanding slightly more subtle control of all media. Woodrow Wilson (signed the 1913 Fed Res Act) “…there is a power somewhere so organized, subtle, watchful, interlocked, complete, pervasive, that [men] had better not speak above their breath” of it. This monstrosity of propaganda and meme creation (“what did you dream we told you what to dream…welcome to the machine”) has metastasized to EVERY sphere and is now more integrated into our lives than the average person can imagine. Wiki-CIA-Leaks included.

      • All quite true. Yet many wonder why I choose to not vote. The politicians all look the same to me, crook or liar. Why continue supporting a system that fails and only creates and continues evil? Our votes don’t matter. As George Carlin said if voting mattered it would be illegal.

        • Got it. Me too. Only exception is pondering the utility of local / state voting, though I doubt those tallies are reliable. Show of force is about all we can do with voting, might be difficult to rig a local election with an overwhelming majority moving on an issue. Love Carlin. By chance, yesterday someone reminded me of Mark Twain’s quote saying the same…Twain being an early witty version of the late great George.

  3. Where have you gone U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Found dead at West Texas ranch…gone to the hillbillarySoros crime syndicate.

  4. Don’t be distracted by the presidential campaign… the guys to replace are those in Congress…

    The Illuminati, after it was formed by the Jesuits, who were forced underground by the outlawing of their Order in 1773, understood the mind of the masses could be controlled through the press. The Illuminati influenced the Vatican to place the highly qualified Meyer Rothschild as guardian of the Vatican’s treasury. Rothschild was a freemason that the Illuminati controlled. In this way, the Jesuits that had been outlawed by the Vatican still had access to the Vatican’s wealth for their various projects which included the French Revolution. Early on the Rothschilds started purchasing the major newspapers of Europe and virtually controlled the news there. So, the manipulation of the news for political purposes has been going on for a long time.

  6. Yikes….

    No wonder they felt the need to deliberately exalt Trump through indisputable media collusion, he’s the only person in the political spectrum able to make HRC seem even remotely suitable.

    This election is not an election, it’s like Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots except it has even more plastic.

  7. For more than a decade, we have known that the MSM was corrupted and compromised. This is not new information. I stopped getting my information from them over 10 years ago, around the same time they refrained from advising the public about the Downing Street Papers.

  8. The kontrolled msm has no teeth and is no longer recognized. They are all bits and pieces of phoney agenda spewing goat worshiping crowd.
    Johann Adam Weishaupt (6 February 1748 – 18 November 1830) was a German philosopher and founder of the Order of the Illuminati, a secret society.
    The pope didn’t finish the job.

    Just tell me she is done.

  10. putting anything on tv is expensive, so it seems innevitable, same thing with political campaigns, now there is the internet, so its more difficult to monopolize a subject, and there is acces to information around the globe and free.

  11. very shameful indeed. caught pants down with Hillary. someone once said that a normal human being should have a sense of shame, but for these organisations, they are beyond this. these are desperate times I guess.
