Accuracy in Media

Former Democratic National Chairwoman Donna Brazile told ABC News’ Brad Mielke that there was “no evidence that Democratic primaries were rigged” instead calling what she found a “cancer ”that was “very dangerous” at the time.

Mielke was interviewing Brazile about her new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House” when he questioned her about the widely-reported rigging charge, that she has since backed off of.

Mileke: I’m just looking at a quote from the book that says you look at whether the team rigged the party process, you said you needed to have solid proof, and then a few sentences later you said “I made the call to Bernie, I found my proof and that broke my heart.”

So you wanted to know if it was rigged, you looked for proof, you found that proof, so it was rigged yeah?

Brazile: I found the proof that there was cancer. And that cancer in my judgment was very dangerous  because at a time we should—the Democratic Party should have been impartial, the Democratic Party should have had control over its own finances. Buts as a result of the memorandum of understanding, the Democratic Party was basically under agreement with the Clinton campaign to hire staff in certain departments and invest in certain technologies and research which I thought should not have been done.

Mielke chose to let Brazile off the hook at the point.

Brazile has spent the week trying to walk back her “rigging” comments from her book after Democrats blasted her for exposing one of oft-repeated charges by Bernie Sanders supporters that he was never given a fair chance of winning the nomination because the Clinton campaign and the DNC wanted to ensure that Hillary would emerge as their standard bearer in 2016.

    She’s backing off the “Rigged DNC/Hillary” as she ONLY wants to do what Obama/Michelle ask of her….”Beat Up on Crooked Hillary, but NOT the DNC, as “WE have our ‘Shadow Gov’t working to BOLSTER the DNC, and PUSH MICHELLE as the next candidate.” THAT IS THE PLAN FOLKS, AND RUSH HAS IT ALSO TODAY. Michelle has NO experience, but then again, Obama ONLY had 10 months as a Jr. Senator, and the Media PUSHED Him into office.
    So you see, IF you own the Media(as per Soros-the Money Manipulator, it CAN BUY YOU THE COVERAGE YOU SEEK, OR TO COVER UP THAT WHICH YOU DON’T.
    The last 8 yrs. of Obama Corruption, should be talked about DAILY-and charges SHOULD be filed against his many Scandals, and it would include his Whole Crooked Regime, and ALL Intel Agencies, that he used(to quote him) “We will Reward our Friends, and PUNISH OUR ENEMIES.” He weakened America, as per his Puppet Master’s Orders-George Soros, who tried for OVER 40 yrs. to “Bring America Down”…..and he got his wish and MORE w/Obama.
    Now, they will push Michelle, with NO qualifications, and her “Racism is KNOWN from her college days forward, as she is just as guilty for the “RACE DIVISIONS IN AMERICA, AS IS OBAMA.” They spent Americans’ tax dollars as IF it was their Own, like the Gluttonous people they are.
    America does NOT need MORE OF THE FAILURES OF ANY OBAMAS.

    I just finished reading Donna Brazile’s book “Hacks”.

    My take: Brazile is a hard worker who gave her ALL to help Hillary get elected in the face of several almost insurmountable challenges. If I were a candidate, I’d want her on my team. Dedicated, determined, kind-hearted.

    But… her perceptions of what happened during the campaign — of Trump, the media, the computer hacking, the Russians, the people in Hillary’s orbit — of just about EVERYTHING, is skewed. Upside down inside out skewed.

    Many times, I was struck by her naivety. She truly is on a very different thought path. As are all progressives.

    But… I am also impressed with her humanity. Her heart.

    Glad I read it. Gives me deeper insight into the mind of a loyal Hillary Democrat, and the blinders one wears when one desperately wants to believe.

    She is right: Democrats are a cancer on this nation, if not the world (and Hillary is a massive tumor). And so it follows that, because it is cancer, then the DNC HQ needs radiation treatment. Someone call the Pentagon and ask what delivery systems they have available.

    Stop it, you’re making me weepy! I wonder how people posted similar sentiments on Salon or HuffPo about Palin’s book — or other such tomes? No research is needed to the answer that question: zero. The real fascists (liberals) just take such books off the shelves and put them in the trash.
