Earlier today WikiLeaks released more documents showing how the Democrat National Committee (DNC) specifically worked to destroy the candidacy of Bernie Sanders in a united effort with the media to support Hillary Clinton.
The revelations within the release are quite astounding, and unfortunately confirm all the prior suspicions of the Bernie Sanders supporters about the democrat party apparatus working with the Clinton campaign to eliminate the threat posed by Senator Sanders.
There are multiple examples of specific activity where the DNC is colluding with the media to undermine Sanders. A few examples are below, and we’ll dig in to some of those stories later. However, within one part of the email release there’s another angle confirming something we have covered here exhaustively.
The DNC actually working with CBS News to construct the specific wording of how poll data should be presented to the CBS News audience.
This type of collusion is what we’ve previously outlined and labeled “Media Agenda-Polls”. In the example above it was/is CBS News allowing the DNC to write the script. However, we’ve previously shared numerous examples of NBC/WSJ polls which showed clear evidence of the same arrangements.
Pollster Mark Murray (NBC) is notorious for capturing and then promoting agenda poll data. Throughout the primary season all of NBC’s polls were specifically intended to prop up Hillary Clinton and detract from Bernie Sanders. Mark Murray does the same thing with NBC/WSJ polling for Clinton -v- Trump comparisons.
Pollster Patrick Murray (Monmouth University) is also part of this structural compromise. Again, we’ve outlined how they do it, and they have become entirely predictable in their behavior. We can also predict their releases simply by looking at the political calendar.
EXAMPLE – The weekend prior to the RNC Convention, NBC releases polls supporting Hillary Clinton. The Monday the convention begins, Monmouth releases polling doing exactly the same thing.
Both the NBC Polling (M Murray) and the Monmouth polling (P Murray) were agenda polls (just like all prior releases); their polls were also fundamentally disconnected from scientific Rasmussen polling released only a few days earlier.
The average person has no idea how vast the scope of the media manipulation is when it comes to data driven political stories. The same ideological biases within the day-to-day stories about ongoing events are present in the data stories (polls). As a consequence we remind everyone that media polling should be entirely ignored; it’s simply all “agenda polling”.
Here’s an example of a scientific poll release from a few days ago that does not carry the media agenda. This polling relies simply on key counties in key battleground states:
I would draw your attention to Pennsylvania. Notice the scope of the Donald Trump lead in Luzerne County, a jaw-dropping 23 point lead.
However, contrast that result against the NBC/WSJ poll that Mark Murray presented right before the GOP convention began – SEE HERE– Not only is the Pennsylvania NBC/WSJ poll batshit crazy, it also was intended to sell a very specific NARRATIVE.
A specifically constructed narrative used all week during the GOP Convention.
According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls, 0 percent of black people in Ohio and Pennsylvania chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton for the next president. (link)
