Clinton fundraising leaves little for state parties

Politico has the May 2, 2016 story Clinton fundraising leaves little for state parties.

This is a paragraph about the Hillary Victory Fund.

The victory fund has transferred $3.8 million to the state parties, but almost all of that cash ($3.3 million, or 88 percent) was quickly transferred to the DNC, usually within a day or two, by the Clinton staffer who controls the committee, POLITICO’s analysis of the FEC records found.

Here is the Nov 02, 2017 Truthdig story Donna Brazile Reveals How Hillary Clinton Bought the DNC During the 2016 Primaries.

In a bombshell piece for Politico, excerpted from an upcoming book, Donna Brazile, the former Democratic National Committee chair, outlines her search for evidence that the 2016 Democratic Party nomination process had been rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton—and her shock at finding it.

I don’t know how a story that was in the news in May 2016 can be called a bombshell when reported again in November 2017. Does the news media read their own news? Maybe this collective amnesia is part of what we call fake news.

NOAM CHOMSKY – The 5 Filters of the Mass Media Machine

Films For Action has the Incredible Animation Summarises Noam Chomsky’s 5 Filters of the Mass Media Machine.

For decades, Noam Chomsky has been the agent provocateur when it comes to critiquing the US mainstream media. He co-authored ‘Manufacturing Consent’, a seminal work on mainstream journalism and its role in the mechanics of power.

I recognized the voice of the narrator immediately. Read her name on the “Read More” link at the Films For Action link above.

Watch the video soon before YouTube is intimidated to take it down because of the source of funding.
