The text from the PDF attachment on this email shows which major media players gathered off-the-record with the soon-to-be-launched Clinton Campaign staff to get their messaging straight.

Felt this was important enough for it's own thread, showing the all-encompassing scope of the corruption of the media and how they are all on the Democrat Team.

Not that you didn't know, but this is hard proof.

I also feel that these anchors are getting paid by billionaires, because CNN and MSNBC don’t get enough ratings to draw enough revenue from their advertisers to pay each anchor a few hundred grand to millions of dollars.

A regular “How to report the News” on behalf of HRC. Total collusion.

Watch... this will be their excuse: “there wasn’t even a campaign back then...”

As if it was such a surprise to them when she finally announced.

I have not been reading all of these email dump threats.

They just seem to be confirming what most of us already suspected. Thus, they are not going to move the needle much.

Those who were going to vote for Clinton probably still are.

Those who were going to vote for Trump probably still are. [The turncoat Pubbies were not going to vote for Trump anyway.]

This is a real conspiracy to undermine fair media handling of democrat and Obama administration matters. John Podesta was a conspirator when he worked in the US Senate as a staffer. I knew him then.

You're right of course. But what about the undecideds?

Not collusion. CONSPIRACY to undermine the US. Sedition IMHO

This makes me sick. What’s the chance of them reporting on themselves?

NOTE HOW THERE ARE NO DIRECT EMAILS TO OR FROM HILLARY TO PODESTA.

WHEN IS THAT GOLD MINE COMING?

OR DID PODESTA DELETE THOSE BEFORE HE GOT HACKED?

Hell, Hill had tapped Kaine for VP as far back as July 2015, a full year before she announced him and before primaries started and everything, they had it rigged for Hill from the get go.

And Hillary didn't really know she was going to run again, as she said as an excuse for her accepting tens of millions of bribes in the form of speaking fess..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eGXqsgfAT0

Everyone who is not going to run for President has a 14 person team of campaign operatives consisting of

HRC TEAM RSVP (14)
1. John Podesta
2. Robby Mook
3. Huma Abedin
4. Marlon Marshall
5. Amanda Renteria
6. Jennifer Palmieri
7. Kristina Schake
8. Jesse Ferguson
9. Nick Merrill
10. Karen Finney
11. Jim Margolis
12. Joel Benenson
13. John Anzalone
14. Mandy Grunwald

The leaked emails show Hillary was planning on running in 2016 for a long, long time.

Hillary admitted publicly that it would have been unethical and illegal for her to accept millions of dollars in speaking fees at $250,000- $600,000 for each half hour speech if she knew she was not going to retire and planned to run for President in 2016.

So she claimed that she did not think she wanted to run for President

Wikileaks prove she had an active campaign organization planning her 2016 campaign from the git go

She flat ass lied to the American people with her “ I had not decided to run for president, so I was not taking bribes” excuse for accepting tens of millions in speaking fees and wiki leaks prove it

“I also feel that these anchors are getting paid by billionaires”

Right. I’d propose a bill that would require all media networks to have public release of tax returns.
