    'Why wait?': Ted Cruz asks why NBC didn't release damning tapes of Donald Trump during GOP primaries

    That's easy. NBC didn't release it earlier because the Broomhillary camp never gave it to them until last week. They probably had it a long time, but wanted to save it for an "October surprise."

    Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday appeared to accuse NBC of intentionally withholding tapes containing material far worse thannewly revealed lewd comments Donald Trump made in 2005 boasting about forcing himself on women.


    Cruz asked in a tweet why NBC hadn't released behind-the-scenes videos of the Republican presidential nominee on "The Apprentice," a reality show that he starred in for over a decade.


    Following Friday's release of audio in which Trump bragged about kissing and grabbing women without their permission, Bill Pruitt, a former producer on the show, said that there are "far worse" comments Trump made on tape.


    "NBC had tape 11 yrs. Apprentice producer says they have more & worse. So why not release in 2015? In March? Why wait till October? #MSMBias" Cruz tweeted, referencing supposed bias towards Trump in the mainstream media.


    That may all be true. But I doubt it was bias towards Trump. If anything they saved all of that to aid Mrs. Bill Clinton figuring there was too great a chance she might lose, and hoping if they could help get Trump as her opponent and raising their garbage against him late would give her some small chance. However, they still can't let out what they have until their boss, crime lord Hillary "Pantsuit"  Ctintioni, says they can.

    Shocker: emails reveal “cozy” relationship between Clinton campaign and press

    Yeah, I'm shocked! I never knew that before.

    Here’s some inside baseball material which highlights a serious disconnect in the perception of relations between the Clinton campaign and the media. Hillary Clinton is notoriously reclusive with the press, frequently finding herself on the receiving end of complaints about how few pressers she holds and her general lack of availability. That stands in contrast with the massively favorable coverage she receives – or at least the inordinate amount of silence surrounding negative Clinton stories compared to the media’s treatment of trump.


    But why would she avoid them so much when they seem to be willing to provide favorable coverage? Writing at The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald reveals some new emails from Guccifer 2.0 which highlight the Clinton team’s awareness of who is or is not friendly in the press corps. In their leading example they cite the staff’s eagerness to work with former Politico reporter (now with the New York Times) Maggie Haberman.


    At times, Clinton’s campaign staff not only internally drafted the stories they wanted published but even specified what should be quoted “on background” and what should be described as “on the record.”

    One January 2015 strategy document – designed to plant stories on Clinton’s decision-making process about whether to run for president – singled out reporter Maggie Haberman, then of Politico, now covering the election for the New York Times, as a “friendly journalist” who has “teed up” stories for them in the past and “never disappointed” them. Nick Merrill, the campaign press secretary, produced the memo, according to the document metadata:


    How specific were the marching orders for contacting reporters like Haberman? Pretty explicit.




    It’s worth keeping in mind here that these are things which communications folks in every campaign want to do. It’s something they all try to do. The real question is how effective they are and how accomodating the media is willing to be. In this case it seemed to be a fairly effective relationship. As Glenn goes on to note, Haberman published two stories on Clinton’s vetting process. While they might not have been word for word what the campaign was looking for, the outlet was clearly pushing the desired theme of Clinton’s thoroughness and good management.


    It wasn’t just the print media being shown favoritism. Greenwald lists a number of Clinton “surrogates” appearing on cable news outlets who could be directly contacted with talking points to push. Some of them were “on the payroll” in various capacities without disclosing that to viewers. A few of the big names on that list include CNN’s Hilary Rosen and Donna Brazile as well as Stephanie Cutter and Maria Cardona. It’s obviously no mystery that these expert commentators were there to promote the Democrats, but their close relationship with the Clinton campaign was never explicitly revealed.


    Explicitly, as in using the words. But their actions have been very explicit. And not unexpected. What's surprising is how open they've been about it. Usually they try (poorly) to hide it. This time there's no pretense to balance.


    Is any of this a shock? Probably not if you’ve watched cable news for more than five minutes or ever seen a newspaper. But it’s still fascinating to see it set forth in black and white this way. Check out the full article for more details.




    Cable news? If you turned on any chance for more than a few seconds it became obvious, broadcast, cable, underground, internet-only - they're practically all lovey-dovey with the she-devil.
