WikiLeaks: Proof NY Times STRATEGIZED with Hillary Clinton
In the latest WikiLeaks, you will see that NY Times’ Scott Shane actually worked with Hillary Clinton’s team on news.
In this particular leak, note how Shane provides in advance what the NYT will print. The list is a rundown, and allowed the Clinton state department to get a heads up on news.

This is the media industrial complex set up by the Clintons. And reporters and Leftist news outlets were all too happy to help, because they are inherently lazy. The saying, “You scratch our back…” applied.
Because if the NYT provided this rundown, the Clinton machine provided access, and of course enough morsels for a reporter to keep his or her job.
For those wondering how fake news is created, you see the dirty underbelly here. Take a look at the suspensions. Deadline reported on the fake news presented by Brian Ross.
On Saturday evening, Donald Trump fired off a series of tweets to congratulate ABC News for suspending anchor Brian Ross and to take more jabs at Hillary Clinton in the wake of former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s plea deal.
In what may seem trivial, President Trump called out a WaPo reporter who blatantly lied about attendance at a Trump rally.
Fortune covered the story:
At the time of a Trump rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, reporter Dave Weigel shared a since-deleted tweet that called into question Trump’s claim that the arena was “packed to the rafters.” Harking back to the inauguration crowd size fiasco, Weigel shared a photo of a half-full arena along with Trump’s claim around the size of the rally.
Trump responded to the tweet on Saturday, sharing a screenshot of Weigel’s tweet, along with other photos of a much fuller arena. He accused Weigel of putting out a “phony photo,” and called for an apology and retraction.
.@DaveWeigel @WashingtonPost put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue, w/ thousands of people outside, on their way in. Real photos now shown as I spoke. Packed house, many people unable to get in. Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo! pic.twitter.com/XAblFGh1ob
And remember when CNN reported WikiLeaks provided access to Donald Trump, Jr of documents hurtful to the Clinton campaign?
The Washington Examiner reported on that story:
President Trump floated the idea of CNN firing its reporters after the news network issued a correction to an erroneous story Friday suggesting that the Trump camp had access to controversial WikiLeaks documents before they were leaked during the 2016 campaign.
He also offered a twist on the the network’s slogan, “the most trusted name in news.”
“Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday,” the president tweeted Saturday morning. “They were caught red handed, just like lonely Brian Ross at ABC News (who should be immediately fired for his “mistake”). Watch to see if @CNN fires those responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?”

Anybody remember RussiaGate?
Well, you won’t soon. Recall that CNN was forced to admit yet another fake news story involving Russia. In this case 3 members of that “investigative” team resigned.
Three CNN journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted.
Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a spokesman said Monday evening.
Venerable news source 60 Minutes decided to look into the fake news phenomena. And while they rightfully looked at outlets that sensationalize news, they in no way investigated thoroughly. Conveniently, 60 Minutes omitted organizations like CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and other Leftist media.
Below is an excerpt from the report:
What does the phrase “fake news” mean? It depends who you ask. The term has become so loaded that when a team of 60 Minutes producers began to investigate fake news, the producers first had to agree on a definition.
“We weren’t interested in doing a story about the ‘fake news’ that is invoked by politicians against the media for stories that they don’t like or for comments that they don’t like,” explains producer Michael Radutzky in the 60 Minutes Overtime video above. “We’re using the term ‘fake news’ to describe stories that are provably false, have enormous traction in the culture, and are consumed by millions of people.”
We live in a time where journalism looks for the easy way out.
Instead of holding politicians accountable, journalist collude, as this makes their jobs much easier.
Why investigate, when somebody setting the narrative can tee up your story for you?
