Imagine the media reaction if Donald Trump’s campaign chairman had pocketed millions of dollars in a deal with one of America’s adversaries. Not only would it lead every news report, but the topic would be the hottest one on social media and even on late night comedy shows.
Now ask yourself how many stories you’ve seen about Hillary’s head honcho John Podesta’s $35 million payday from Putin. It’s been in the Wall Street Journal and a few other outlets, but has received nowhere near the coverage such a blockbuster story merits.
Breitbart.com has been leading the way on this major story, and now follows up:
The Wall Street Journal, New York Post, and the Daily Mail, among other news outlets, published stories based on research from Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer revealing that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta’s firm Joule Unlimited received millions from a Putin-connected Russian government fund.
This media blackout persists, oddly, after “John Podesta” catapulted to the top of Facebook North America’s treading topics list on Monday, thanks to Schweizer’s new Russia revelations.
Breitbart’s Jerome Hudson adds, tongue in cheek, that if these “mainstream media firms” are having trouble finding the contact information for Podesta’s company so they can ask a few questions, he’s happy to provide a link to the company’s website.
Of course, the media are clearly hoping this story will go away on its own. Their bias is so obvious it’s embarrassing, or should be, at least to them.
