In a recent release of emails to Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, Wikileaks has revealed that members of the media are purposely downplaying and outright ignoring Bill Clinton’s sexual misdeeds, because it could hurt Hillary’s chances of being elected.
The confidential email (which can be read here) shows that members of the media are actively coordinating with the Clinton campaign to give them favorable coverage. And that means covering up Bill Clinton’s sexual crimes.
The email, which is marked “confidential,” was sent to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta by prominent left-wing journalist Brent Budowsky. It includes details of Budowsky’s exchange “with someone in the media,” who told him that, “there are people close to the Clintons who says WJC’s (William Jefferson Clinton) sex life could be damaging to her.”
Although Budowsky stresses his view that the more Bill Clinton the better for Hillary, he adds that, “there were people purportedly close to the Clintons pushing the line that the less WJC the better.”
“Whoever is peddling this crap from somewhere within the Clinton camp is having the effect of encouraging the media to give the issue more prominence,” complains Budowsky.
“They are hurting both Clintons. I always stay out of intra-staff stuff like this, both Clinton’s would be well advised to advise the people in their orbit to shut the hell up about this,” he concludes.
Even more amazing is Budowsky’s admission that he would not say or write anything that could damage the Clintons. “Even if I thought Bill Clinton was a liability I would never in a million years write it or say it to the media.”
This is the same media, mind you, that has no problem bringing up negative coverage of Republicans, including Donald Trump.
