Press Coordination With Democrats

An influential reporter at Politico made an apparent "agreement" with the Democratic National Committee to let it review a story about Hillary Clinton's fundraising machine before it was submitted to his editors, leaked emails published by WikiLeaks on Friday revealed.

Internal strategy documents and emails among Clinton staffers shed light on friendly and highly useful relationships between the campaign and various members of the U.S. media, as well as the campaign’s strategies for manipulating those relationships.

  As these internal documents demonstrate, a central component of the Clinton campaign strategy is ensuring that journalists they believe are favorable to Clinton are tasked to report the stories the campaign wants circulated.

  At times, Clinton’s campaign staff not only internally drafted the stories they wanted published but even specified what should be quoted “on background” and what should be described as “on the record.”

The leaks also show that the press is in Mrs. Clinton’s pocket. Donna Brazile, a former Clinton staffer and a TV pundit, sent the exact wording of a coming CNN town hall question to the campaign in advance of the event. Other media allowed the Clinton camp to veto which quotes they used from interviews, worked to maximize her press events and offered campaign advice. Go To Site

Opinion writers are entitled to have biases, but there’s a fundamental difference between writing a pro-Clinton piece and writing a piece that was literally dictated by Clinton’s staff. A journalist who does the latter isn’t even a journalist: he’s a propagandist masquerading as a legitimate news source. -Robby Soave Go To Site

"You must describe her tone as 'muscular,' and you must note that her most prominent underlings at the State Department (George Mitchell, Richard Holbrooke) would be seated in front of her to convey her command of the staff."...

  Mike Allen at Politico and Mark Landler at The New York Times also used copy that showed Reines was orchestrating Clinton's press clips with them as well. Both reporters used the adjective "muscular" and both cited the other envoys in front of her. They needed to stay on Team Hillary. -L. Brent Bozell III Go To Site

An email released by WikiLeaks on Sunday shows that the husband of CNN vice president and Washington bureau chief Virginia Moseley tipped the Clinton campaign off to a favorable poll just before its release last September. “Good CNN poll coming,” Thomas Nides, Moseley’s husband, wrote to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta in a Sept. 20, 2015 email...

  “I’ll look forward to how that is spun,” Podesta responded to Nides, who remains close to Clinton.

CNBC’s John Harwood has appeared once again in the WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta‘s emails. Harwood, who moderated one of the GOP primary debates, sent emails to Podesta that ranged from FYIs to compliments. Mediaite reports that now there’s an email out from WikiLeaks from Harwood to Podesta which has the subject line “what should I ask Jeb…”, referring to his upcoming interview with Jeb Bush back in September 2015...

Newly released emails from WikiLeaks suggest that the Democratic National Committee colluded with CNN in devising questions in April to be asked of then-Republican primary candidate Donald Trump in an upcoming interview.

  In an email to DNC colleagues on April 25 with the headline "Trump Questions for CNN," a DNC official with the email username DillonL@dnc.org asked for ideas for an interview to be conducted by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. "Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed. ... Please send me thoughts by 10:30 AM tomorrow."

CHRIS PLANTE: You said that they "disgraced themselves." They didn't disgrace themselves, they were just padding their resumes. They were found out in WikiLeaks.

John Harwood, who is with CNBC and writes for the New York Times, he is trading emails with Podesta and strategizing. He's warning him about how Ben Carson could be trouble in a general, and they're just spitballing. They're on the same team and it is quite clear that they have common goals...

I was talking to somebody about this earlier: It is almost like the Soviet Union, but worse. At least in the Soviet Union, there was a penalty for not collborating with the state. These guys do it quite voluntarily. They do it because they are on the team. Harwood is far from alone.

Glenn Thrush of Politico was caught sending emails to the Clinton people for their prior approval. He called himself in his own email a "hack." he confessed, lamenting perhaps, that he is a hack...

He was with Politico, and I'll have you know he's no longer with Politico. He's now with the New York Times. The Times saw this and said they liked the cut of his jib. So they hired him away from the Politico... It is considered to be a big promotion...

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank appears to have asked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to do the majority of the research for a negative column he wrote about Donald Trump in April 2016...

  Internal DNC emails suggest Milbanks asked for — and then leaned heavily on — DNC opposition research on Trump for the article. The day before Milbank’s article, DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker sent out an email to the DNC’s research team. In the email — which was titled “research request: top 10 worst Trump quotes?” — Walker wrote, “Milbank doing a Passover-themed 10 plagues of Trump.”

For the second time in less than a month Politico chief political correspondent Glenn Thrush has been caught sending stories to Hillary Clinton staffers for approval...

  Thrush sent an email to Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri on April 17, 2015 with the subject line: “pls read asap — the [Jennifer Palmieri] bits — don’t share.” This was revealed in Thursday’s WikiLeaks release of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails... The eight paragraphs that Thrush sent Palmieri were filled with glowing sentences about her. She wrote in the forwarded email to Clinton staffers, “He did me courtesy of sending what he is going to say about me. Seems fine.”

Yet another journalist has been exposed by WikiLeaks as a Hillary Clinton cheerleader — this time it’s CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger. Borger sent Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta an email on February 12, 2016 titled: “U r a tv star!”In the email, Borger knocked the Republican Party and praised Hillary.

  “I have been in gop hell. Will reach out soon! U good?,” Borger wrote to Podesta. Podesta replied, “Yup.” Borger then said, “[Hillary] had a really good debate tonite.”

In 2009, Marc Ambinder, formerly a contributing editor of The Atlantic, emailed Clinton spokesperson Philippe Reines for an advance copy of the speech the then-secretary of state planned to make at a Council on Foreign Relations event. Reines emailed back with a few conditions: Ambinder had to describe the speech as “muscular,” and he had to take a dismissive view of the seating positions of some of her rivals. Reines also wrote: “Don’t say you were blackmailed!”

  Ambinder emailed back “got it.” He complied fully. Here was the first paragraph of his article about the speech (emphasis Gawker’s):

  When you think of President Obama’s foreign policy, think of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. That’s the message behind a muscular speech that Clinton is set to deliver today to the Council on Foreign Relations.

“What they have not admitted is their complicity in Hillary Clinton’s campaign, or their unbelievable bias, and worse, their smearing of people, including Steve Bannon and others so that they could make some political points.”

On October 11, Mediaite’s Jordan Chariton first reported another email that showed Brazile tipping off the Clinton campaign to a question on the death penalty that would be asked at a CNN Town Hall the next day. Brazile was a CNN contributor at the time, and that wasn’t her only helpful tip.

By the time of 2016 presidential race, the media had lost their credibility as disinterested guardians of objective truth. And while Hillary Clinton in 2016 was no Barack Obama in 2008, reporters still gave her special privileges.

CNN talking-head Donna Brazile fed debate questions to the Clinton campaign prior to a Clinton-Sanders televised debate. And the John Podesta Wikileaks trove revealed that a number of marquee reporters were openly colluding with Clinton to defeat Trump.

Yet another hacked email from the latest Wikileaks dump Monday shows that acting DNC head and then-CNN contributor Donna Brazile provided questions to Hillary Clinton before a presidential debate...

  “Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint,” Brazile said in the body of the email. Sure enough, one of the questions directed to Clinton during the debate was from a woman who spoke about the Flint water crisis’ effect on her family, asking what Clinton would do in her first hundred days in office.

A CNN reporter who was recently suspended for two weeks for violating the network’s editorial guidelines showed up in a new trove of State Department emails released on Tuesday in which she appears to have coordinated social media posts with a top Hillary Clinton State Department aide during the former secretary of state’s Jan. 23, 2013 Senate testimony about the Benghazi attacks.

  The emails, which were released to the website Gawker, show that Elise Labott, a foreign affairs reporter at CNN, took guidance from Clinton aide Philippe Reines by posting a tweet criticizing Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul for asking Clinton tough questions during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks.

  Labott also coordinated with Reines to post a favorable quote from Clinton’s testimony, which she gave just a week before she left office.

A release of Democratic National Committee emails from WikiLeaks shows Politico reporter Ken Vogel sent a pre-publication negative copy of a story April 30 to the DNC’s deputy communications director, so he and other staffers at the DNC along with Hillary Clinton campaign could coordinate a response.

In one email chain discussing the upcoming release of exchanges between Clinton and writer Sidney Blumenthal, insiders noted that the Associated Press appeared to be willing to allow the Clinton campaign to plant favorable stories.

  “[T]hey are considering placing a story with a friendly at the AP (Matt Lee or Bradley Klapper), that would lay this out before the majority on the committee has a chance to realize what they have and distort it,” wrote Nick Merrill, the Clinton campaign’s traveling press secretary.

The latest trove of emails released by WikiLeaks on Monday proves even further collusion between large, ostensibly mainstream media outlets and the Democratic Party. In an astonishing email, Politico chief White House political correspondent and senior staff writer Glenn Thrush runs his latest article by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta to make sure nothing offends the Clinton henchman.

  "Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u [sic]," Thrush writes to Podesta. "Please don't share or tell anyone I did this … tell me if I f*cked up anything," he continues. "OTR: No problems here," Podesta responded.

  The revelation comes on the same day as the release of a new report by the Center for Public Integrity, which showed that the vast majority of politically active journalists have donated money to the Clinton campaign.

New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich sought quote approval from the Hillary Clinton campaign following an interview with campaign manager Robby Mook, potentially in violation of the paper’s reporting policy, according to an email published by WikiLeaks.

  Jesse Ferguson, the campaign’s deputy press secretary, emailed Mook (and campaign chairman John Podesta) in July 2015 with “quotes that Leibovich (New York Times) is intending to use from your conversation with him unless we see a problem.”

  Robby - Here are the quotes that Leibovich (New York Times) is intending to use from your conversation with him unless we see a problem. Neither of them are “problematic” enough that I think we would veto his use of them at this point. They’re both on message. Though I like the second graph better than first.

In January 2013, Politico’s chief White House correspondent and "Playbook" author Mike Allen e-mailed an aide to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a proposal:


We’re hosting a Politico New Leaders Brunch on Sunday, Jan. 20, with a brief on-stage interview with moi. We would love to honor Chelsea Clinton, and it sounds like she has some issues, marriage and others, that she enjoys talking about these days. This would be a way to send a message during inaugural week: No one besides me would ask her a question, and you and I would agree on them precisely in advance.


This would be a relaxed conversation, and our innovative format (like a speedy Playbook Breakfast) always gets heavy social-media pickup. The interview would be “no surprises:” I would work with you on topics, and would start with anything she wants to cover or make news on.

Ezra Klein, the boy wonder editor-in-chief of Vox, is considered to be the campaign’s most reliable mouthpiece, as seen in a March 23, 2015 email in which Clintonistas were wondering which journalist it could call upon to push out a campaign storyline they were then concocting. “I think that person…is Ezra Klein,” wrote Palmieri. “And we can do it with him today.” -Ken Silverstein Go To Site
