While a reception for the media would be nothing out of the ordinary, what we are seeing from the recent WikiLeaks emails shows a much closer relationship than anyone could even suspect.
Campaign Chairman John Podesta had reporters over to his house for intimate dinners that were described as "working" dinners to plan out and inform the media how the campaign would be covered.
We begin to see a picture of not just media bias, but rather collusion. In looking how the campaign has been covered so far we can see that this is not just an accusation, but rather the reality of what has taken place.
The Clinton team even bragged about it amongst themselves. In one recently released WikiLeaks email, they said "We are driving the republicans crazy... @BDayspring – “Clinton campaign today proved they could hide candidate for months, give 1 bkgd briefing on a single speech & get dozens of positive stories”.
But it seems like the public gets it. Pollsters asked 1,000 likely voters: “What do you think is the primary threat that might try to change the election results?” 45.53% said “the news media”.
Congress has sent a letter to major media companies demanding an answer to the collusion being that most use public airwaves to broadcast.
While Donald Trump was criticized when making a comment about tighter media culpability regarding false reporting it appears once again he was just a little ahead of everyone else in speaking about the problem, but justified nonetheless.
