If this isn’t a brazen and shocking example of how controlled the media is in the United States, then I don’t know what is.
The clip exposes how mainstream media outlets immediately began regurgitating Clinton campaign talking points within hours of Hillary’s infamous collapse in New York on Sunday.
After Clinton campaign staffers began using the term “power through” over and over again in an effort to emphasize Hillary’s strength – a complete 180 of objective reality – network hosts adopted and repeated the phrase themselves.
As David Rutz reported, “Campaign manager Robby Mook and spokespeople Brian Fallon and Kristina Schake all repeated the talking point ad nauseam in their cable appearances on Monday. The media picked it up as well, with reporters on CNN and MSNBC using the phrase to describe how Hillary Clinton bravely reacted to a pneumonia diagnosis on Friday.”
However, the real scandal is how the media regurgitated talking points that were directly distributed by the Clinton campaign.
As Politico reported, “Those phrases, projecting strength, prudence, and vigor, were among the six bullet-pointed talking points about Clinton’s health the campaign distributed to its army of outside surrogates Tuesday morning. The marching orders, part of the “Daily Message Guidance” from Brooklyn headquarters, instructed Clinton allies on how to answer questions about the Democratic nominee’s pneumonia and about how she dealt with the untimely setback.”
So by repeating the exact same talking points, the likes of CNN and MSNBC were confirming and embracing their role as “surrogates” of the Clinton campaign.
