- The Washington Times - Thursday, October 20, 2016

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Over 20 times more media coverage has been devoted to unverified sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump than has been utilized to discuss recent Wikileaks disclosures.

From collusion between Hillary Clinton and the media to potential quid pro quo deals between the Mrs. Clinton and the FBI, Wikileaks has opened the eyes of many Americans to the alarming corruption that exists in Washington.

Imagine how many more eyes would be opened and minds changed if the mainstream media provided fair and adequate coverage of these leaked emails for the American public.

Since it is not likely that we will see proper coverage before November 8th, I reviewed the Wikileaks emails and put together three major points for you to consider.

1. Mrs. Clinton says one thing to the American people and another behind closed doors.

Wikileaks has released Mrs. Clinton’s paid speeches to Wall Street, Goldman Sachs and other banking institutions, showing that she has very different views on trade, Wall Street and financial regulations than she had boasted to the American people during the Democratic primaries. In one of her paid speeches, Mrs. Clinton also admitted that she is “kind of far removed” from the middle class because of the life she lives and the “fortunes” that she and Bill Clinton enjoy, meaning that relatable connection to the middle class that she boasts about may be fictional.

2. Mrs. Clinton’s team bashes Catholics, Evangelicals, Latinos, Whites and pretty much every other group of Americans.

From Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chief, John Podesta, wishing the San Bernardino shooter had been white and calling Latinos “needy” to her staff knocking Catholics and Evangelicals for being “backwards,” it is hard to find a group of Americans that has not been bashed by the Clinton campaign.

3. Mrs. Clinton has the media in her pocket.

Nothing screams biased media and unfair advantage like Mrs. Clinton receiving a question, exactly how it was going to be worded, in advance of a Town Hall debate. Of course, her opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders, did not receive this question in advance. Add this to Mrs. Clinton receiving major questions in advance of other interviews and an email from an MSNBC producer pouring over Mrs. Clinton, describing an MSNBC segment à “the point isn’t to dwell on the past but the point is to talk about this amazing, intelligent woman.” The gushing went on, but I think you get the point.
