Top Clinton campaign advisor says media ignores Clinton voters

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has offered her personal support for a new media-driven website, described as a “media platform for the 65.8 million” voters who supported her in last November’s presidential election. One of her former campaign advisers, Peter Daou, celebrated her endorsement in a series of Twitter posts, amusingly claiming her supporters are “unrepresented” in national media.

With many Americans likening national media coverage to a form of propaganda that only gives credibility to left-leaning or moderate viewpoints, Peter Daou’s complaint that the Democratic candidate’s supporters are underrepresented is questionable.

Daou, the strategist and internet director for Clinton’s doomed 2008 presidential run against Barrack Hussein Obama, is the co-founder of Verrit. Its information page says the platform aims to organize Clinton’s supporters by providing them with verified facts.

According to the Free Beacon, Verrit is “an unabashedly pro-Clinton news source.” Recode says the platform is reeking with obvious bias.

Hillary Clinton announced her support via Twitter on Sunday. She tweeted: “I’m excited to sign up for Verrit, a media platform for the 65.8 million! Will you join me and sign up too?”

Shortly after her announcement, Daou announced that Verrit had been forced offline, having experienced a cyberattack.

Daou’s announcement of Hillary’s support came in a series of two tweets. Put together, they read: “THREAD—EXCITING NEWS!! Hillary Clinton endorses Verrit, the media platform we’re building for the 65.8 million!  Leela Daou and I founded Verrit because Hillary Clinton’s voters – an inspiringly diverse coalition – are unrepresented in the media.”

The Free Beacon reports:

Daou’s claim appears to contradict conventional wisdom and decades of polling that shows journalists are far more likely to vote for the Democratic candidate.

The Center for Public Integrity found in 2016 that of the more than $396,000 donated by journalists to a presidential campaign, 96 percent of it went to Clinton.

A 2014 Indiana University study likewise found that only seven percent of journalists identify as Republicans, compared to 28% who identify as Democrats.

Of the 100 largest newspapers in America, two—the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union—endorsed Donald Trump in 2016. Clinton received endorsements from 57 of the papers.

Daou, an ardent supporter of Clinton, actively defends the former candidate on Twitter. In a recent post, he said he would be “methodically taking apart” any detractors who dared to comment against her new book, “What Happened.”

He even attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Twitter recently. Sanders, who ran as a Democrat against Clinton in 2016, was accused of being “detrimental to the Democratic Party” by Daou, who also said Sanders never “faced a tenth the scrutiny that Hillary did.”
