Networks ignore bombshell Brazile-Clinton story


Most mainstream news outlets ignored bombshell revelations dropped on Thursday by former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile that Hillary Clinton’s campaign “rigged” the Democratic nomination process.

Brazile has written in a new tell-all book that she discovered evidence that Hillary Clinton’s campaign took over the DNC months before the presidential wannabe had the Party’s official nomination.

The story received considerable coverage on cable news and in print and online media. Brazile was also trending as one of Twitter’s top topics on Thursday, yet “ABC’s World News Tonight,” “NBC Nightly News,” and “CBS Evening News” made no mention of the allegations.

In excerpts released to Politico Thursday, Brazile writes in her new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” that it “broke [her] heart” upon discovering evidence that she said showed the Clinton campaign “rigged” the Democratic nomination system.

“By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,” Brazile wrote, about a Sep. 7, 2016, call to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who gave Clinton a far more serious challenge for the nomination than many had expected.

Upon taking over as the Party’s interim chair after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was ousted in July, Brazile discovered that Wasserman Schultz had allowed the DNC’s spending to get out of control. In her efforts to stop the bleeding, she made a deal with Clinton’s campaign “to sustain the DNC,” according to the Clinton campaign’s chief financial officer, Gary Gensler.

Clinton’s campaign “had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse,” she revealed.

“If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity,” Brazile added.

President Trump tweeted about Brazile’s revelations Thursday night and into Friday morning, calling out the Justice Department and the FBI to “do what is right and proper” and pursue the matter.

“Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems,” the president wrote to his 41.7 million followers.

Amid the Brazile blackout, the ABC, NBC and CBS evening newscasts all featured reports on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the recent indictments of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate, Richard Gates.

The so-called ‘Big Three’ evening newscasts attract more than 20 million viewers combined every day.
