In Bed with Hillary then Off to Cover Trump..

In yesterday's post we mentioned some of the people who closely worked behind the scenes with the Clinton camp during the election to do everything they could to help Hillary win, would now be covering the Trump White House and shape how day to day coverage is molded..

So let's take a look at some of these rat-bastards

First off, CNBC chief political correspondent and New York Times political writer John Harwood who demonstrated clear partisanship in his many email exchanges with Hillary's campaign chair, John Podesta.
Harwood told Podesta to “watch out” for Dr. Ben Carson during the Republican primary.   He emailed, “Ben Carson could give you real trouble in a general (election),” Harwood warned, including video clips of Carson’s political positions.

In a December 2015 email to Podesta, Harwood claimed the Republican Party was “veering off the rails” and bragged about provoking Trump during a Republican presidential debate, where he asked Trump if he was running “a comic book version of a presidential campaign.”
Harwood also wrote in that email, “I imagine that Obama feels some (sad) vindication at this demonstration of his years-long point about the opposition party veering off the rails.  I certainly am feeling that way with respect to how I questioned Trump at our debate.”

As CNBC’s chief political correspondent, Harwood will play a central role in the network’s coverage of the Trump administration.

Harwood like the piece of shit coward that all media are, never publicly responded to the Wikileaks release of his correspondences with the Clinton campaign
Next is another liberal piece of scum, former Politico reporter Glenn Thrush who last month, the New York Times announced it would be hiring to cover the Trump White House.

Emails released by WikiLeaks showed Thrush sending stories to Clinton staffers for approval before publication.

“Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to [you],” he wrote in an April 30, 2015 email to Podesta, including five paragraphs from a piece titled “Hillary’s Big Money Dilemma.”
“Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this,” Thrush added. “Tell me if I fucked up anything.” to which Podesta replied back, “No problems here,”.

On April 17, 2015, Thrush sent an email to Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri with the subject line: “pls read asap — the [Jennifer Palmieri] bits — don’t share.

Palmieri forwarded Thrush’s email to other Clinton campaign staffers, writing: “He did me courtesy of sending what he is going to say about me. Seems fine.”
Other journalists who will cover the Trump White House were named as personal favorites of Clinton campaign staffers include:

New York Times Magazine chief national correspondent Mark Leibovich whom the Clinton camp characterized as “sympathetic.”

WikiLeaks emails revealed Leibovich giving Palmieri “veto” power over which anecdotes he would include in his stories.
Another document in the leak revealed the campaign’s strategies for placing stories with friendly journalists and described the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman (who was then with Politico) as a “friendly journalist.”

A memo reportedly created at the time by traveling press secretary Nick Merrill stated, “We are all in agreement that the time is right place a story with a friendly journalist in the coming days that positions us a little more transparently while achieving the above goals...

“We have has a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed,” the memo continued.

“While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for reengaging the beat press that covers HRC (Hillary), for this we think we can achieve our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”
This is the ethically bankrupt filth that will be covering the Trump Presidency in a supposedly objective, unbiased manner..

And you wonder why so many everyday people, especially Democrats are so politically stupid and continually misinformed...
