Corruption Between Political Operatives And The Media Stinks To High Heaven.



STASI: Lying DNC chair 

Donna Brazile, 

who gave Clinton campaign

 questions ahead of debate 

when she worked for

 CNN, shows why

Americans don’t trust 

the media 





Serial question-passer Brazile worked for both ABC and CNN while she was vice chair at the DNC, which seemed to present no conflict at all for the networks.

How come presidential candidates and paid TV news experts
 who hold sway over millions of people aren't held to the same
 code of honor as cadets at U.S. military academies? At least!
That code goes something like this: "A cadet will not lie,
cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do." If a cadet gets the
questions before a test, he or she faces expulsion.
But if a presidential candidate gets the questions before a
debate, she'll win. Hillary Clinton hasn't even bothered, so
 far, to address the issue that debate questions were apparently
leaked to her campaign by Donna Brazile, former CNN analyst
 and interim head of the Democratic National Committee.
As one of the two least-trusted presidential candidates in
 history, along with Donald Trump, Clinton owes the
American people an explanation. Now.

From another perspective, Brazile's leak to the Clinton camp
 rightfully also highlights the horrifying breach of journalistic
 ethics a news organization ensures by hiring a person who is
 on staff to candidates or parties in the first place.
For starters, serial question-passer Brazile worked for both
 ABC and CNN while she was vice chair at the DNC, which
 seemed to present no conflict at all for the networks. Then
she even continued as an unpaid contributor to CNN after
taking the interim chair job! And we journalists wonder
why people don't trust news organizations anymore?
Yet despite it all, TV anchors still stop short of calling
 Brazile a lousy cheat. Sharks don't eat their young, I guess.

Instead they preface stories with "she's a good person
 and a nice person" (Jake Tapper), "I like her, I know
her" (Tucker Calson), "She's a lovely person" (Megyn
 Kelly), "I kinda feel sorry for Donna in a way, I don't
 think she's a bad woman" (Bill O'Reilly). Why feel
sorry for a snake? Why give a cheat any quarter at all?
Anyone who gives a candidate questions that she got
 in an unethical way to begin with, isn't lovely, good
or nice. If true, and it certainly appears that way, she's
a cheat who deprived the entire American public of
fair and honest discourse.
Brazile, who denies she did anything wrong, appears
to be nothing short of a lousy cheat, and should have
 been let go the second she took the reins of the DNC.
 By keeping her on, CNN head Jeff Zucker and company
put a big nail in the coffin of journalism.

How does a supposedly legit news organization like CNN justify hiring all those "experts" such as ex-Trumper Corey Lewandowski, while he was receiving "severance" payments of a reported half a million dollars from the Trump campaign?

On Tuesday, Zucker finally told staffers Brazile's actions
 were "unethical" and "disgusting." Really? So have
 CNN's been for way too long.
I mean, seriously: How does a supposedly legit news
 organization like CNN justify hiring all those "experts"
such as ex-Trumper Corey Lewandowski, while he was
 receiving "severance" payments of a reported half a
million dollars from the Trump campaign? What about
the $20,000 Lewandowski received in August from them,
which was listed as "strategy consulting?"
Inexplicably, CNN even kept inviting former Trump
 advisor/PAC launcher Roger Stone, who had a history
 of tweeting out racist rants like "Who is this stupid negro
Roland Martin? Buffoon or token Buffoon ? #CNN," “@rolandsmartin
 Who made you God, Fattass? Eat somemore Popeye's,"
 and of Anna Navarro, "Black beans and rice didn't miss
 her." It took them until February of this year to announce
 they were forever disinviting Stone to the table. Way too
 little, way too late.

These were all serious conflicts of interest and serious
breaches of journalistic ethics.
What makes it all murkier and filthier is that Brazile was
 outed as a cheat from hacked emails stolen by the Russians.
 It's like a horrible Kafka novel and we've all been turned into
 giant insects without a chance of escape.
Yesterday Brazile tweeted, "Please God, let this end soon."
Amen to that.
