“It’s different for the media, so everything you learn about this you’re learning from us.” –CNN’s attempt at controlling the information coming out of WikiLeaks’ latest data dump
The fallout from the WikiLeaks hack of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign is just beginning. In this clip below, CNN tries to conduct some damage control by telling its audience that it is illegal for them to look at WikiLeaks. Haha! That is hilarious. WikiLeaks has exposed direct contacts from individuals in the media to individuals on the Clinton campaign and the DNC. The leaked emails show bias and collusion and more.
CNN is in the leaked emails. So CNN’s response is to tell their audience not to look, there is no need, because “everything you learn about this you’re learning from us.” One thing they don’t want you to read about is how Donna Brazile, CNN contributor and then vice-chair of the DNC, sent an email to the Clinton campaign ahead of a CNN townhall with the subject line “From time to time I get the questions in advance.” Brazile claims she never gave out questions in advance, but has thus far failed to mention why she chose the subject line she chose. Also, the question she sent was read nearly line for line at the townhall. It is not illegal for you to open this link to read the email yourself.
So is this journalism from CNN? Or is the below clip just a poor attempt at controlling the information coming out of WikiLeaks?
CNN has lost all credibility.
