WikiLeaks vs. the Comey letter; thank you Anthony Weiner
When WikiLeaks announced that they had emails from John Podesta and they were releasing them to the public, being a Trump supporter I was overjoyed. I hoped that finally there would be some news coverage that would make HRC look bad and push Trump ahead in the polls.
But much to my dismay, the contents of the Podesta emails were completely ignored by the mainstream media. When they did cover the story, which got a lot less coverage than the tape of Trump’s locker-room talk with Billy Bush, the emphasis was on the outrage that Russians hacked into Podesta’s emails, and that Trump is a Russian stooge. It’s possible that the Podesta emails actually were a gift to HRC because they gave her campaign and the MSM (which was acting as her propaganda wing) yet another avenue with which to attack Trump.
The Comey letter was different. The mainstream media covered it. Instead of 24/7 coverage about how Trump is a racist, authoritarian, misogynist harasser of women who’s a stooge of Putin and the Russians, they were actually covering something which made HRC look bad. They (HRC and her allied MSM propagandists) tried to do a deflection like they did with the Podesta emails, that it’s outrageous that Comey was interfering with the election and that Comey is a really really bad person and you should vote for HRC just to spite him or because it shows how evil Trump is, or something like that, but Comey simply wasn’t as effective a fall guy as Putin, because Comey is an American, who was appointed to his job by Obama, and who up until that point was praised by Democrats for his wisdom in not finding a reason to prosecute anyone in connection with HRC’s email server.
The unanswered question, however, is why did the MSM give a significant amount of coverage to the Comey letter? Why didn’t they just ignore it and bury it like they they did with WikiLeaks and Podesta’s emails?
I think the answer is because it was related to Anthony Weiner sending pictures of his penis to a fifteen-year-old girl. That made the story too salacious to ignore. If the letter had been in reference to emails which came from any other more normal and boring source, it would have been ignored just like WikiLeaks.
So thank you Anthony Weiner for saving for saving us from HRC.
