    First. Old "news."

    Second - where in either of those links does it show a tie to HC's campaign? I see DNC on the emails. I don't see anyone from HC's office.

    Also - is it possible that the same types of emails exist for the RNC when it came to questions for Bernie/Hillary, etc? You can't say for certain because those emails aren't exposed.

    So - there's really nothing to see here. Just some desperation to attach meaning to something that isn't really there. try harder.

    DNC and Clinton campaign are basically the same thing.

    No they aren't. But if it helps you sleep better at night - especially after Hillary wins tomorrow, then I won't take that away from you.

    You don't watch much American CNN do you ?

    There are times I swear CNN is pushing for Drumpf.

    Repeating yourself doesn't magically make your opinion a fact.

    Wow, CNN is so far in the tank for Hillary and the Dems. And to think the fake liberals on this forum criticise Fox for being biased on air but ignore the collusion that happens behind the scenes involving their favourite brethren over at CNN and MSNBC.

    Could you imagine the outrage if Trump new Bill O'Reilly's questions before he asked? Oh wait, he did. I'll just go ahead and search these boards for the same outrage you guys now have for Hillary & Wolf, please hold your breath waiting for me to get back with those results.

    O'Reilly moderated a presidential debate?
    Where did that happen?
    Planet Eric?

    I see, so it's about the venue, not the act?

    Good god.

    So, CNN apparently asked the DNC for potential questions for interviews. That's the nut? It's a stupid bit of research, but it doesn't show collusion. The journalist/producer is just asking people for their thoughts.

    And, reporters may run something past a source for comment or to fact-check. That's not collusion.

    It's not an ethical breach to do either of these things.

    Though, I do enjoy the whole "mainstream media" idea, especially that after 20 years with millions of viewers Fox News still isn't mainstream, nor is the Wall Street Journal, nor Breitbart apparently.

    CNN also gave them the questions beforehand. Member?

    And, see my posts about that particular issue.

    But, again, even if we accept the doubtful notion that CNN is "in the tank" for Clinton, that doesn't mean the "Mainstream Media" is in the tank for Clinton.

    It's a simple logic equation.

    Of course, Trump supporters have responded in the most intelligent fashion, repeatedly threatening journalists, including one man who screamed "Jew S.A.!" at reporters while another wore a shirt reading "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required."

    Meanwhile, the Trump Cheerleading Squad gets a pass on their bias—remember kids: a biased ref in your favor is a good ref!— as does a host of other bong-water outlets pretending to cover the news.

    And, for the last time, it's clear where Wikileaks' bread is buttered. No Trump tax returns. No RNC emails. Nothing from the other 16 campaigns in the GOP.

    Wikileaks is after Clinton. They've transformed into a propaganda outfit and I'm disappointed that what once claimed itself as a clearing house of information has become a shrill vendetta.

    Wikileaks is against Clinton because she is a threat to freedom and democracy.
    Assange knows this. Many people know.
    You just can't see it.

    And of course the MSM is in the tank for Clinton.
    That's blatantly obvious.

    Because it's patent garbage.

    Confirmation bias writ large.

    Wikileaks is against Clinton because her administration might actually do something about their hacking government servers not just hers.

    No kidding I couldn't believe he said CNN was pro-Trump. He obviously doesn't watch CNN himself.

    Unless you are being willfully ignorant, candidates typical run through interview questions before they agree to do the interview, they aren't going to allow themselves to get steamrolled on tv. Clinton barely gave an interview over the last couple years, but when she did it was heavily scripted.

    Debates are supposed to be independent and candidates aren't supposed to know the questions. Hillary couldn't handle that format so she had to cheat.
