    There must be some good shit in these new WikiLeaks.
    They've called the "all hands on deck" alarm.

    Exactly.

    Hillary is floundering, call in the press! :ulol:

    One problem... no one gives a fuck what the press has to say, they overplayed their hand in regards to Trump long ago.

    What's going to happen on these news sites if it looks like a trump landslide in a month? Will politics even be on the front page of 2/3 of these compiled news links or major news media sites?

    It's pretty funny that the only thing out so far is the Colin Powell e mails from another source calling Trump am international pariah.
    Those e mails also talk about how the Clintons and Obama's cant stand each other and how Hillary is in such bad shape that she can barely stand at a podium.
    For some reason those things aren't mentioned in what the MSM is putting out there today.
    :nocheer:
    It's funny how fast people forgot the part of the first batch from WikiLeaks where the DCN was on record making Chuck Todd and MSNBC their bitch.

    What I find very interesting about these big corporations and their apparent push for Clinton, is that trump is basically a Democrat or at least centerish. So why are these left leaning companies so worried? What do they have to lose by an outsider winning?

    they are all against Trump; Apple, Twitter, Google, YouTube. It's fairly obvious at this point.

    Yup!

    If Trump was a "typical" Republican who willfully eats shit from the press, he would be dead and buried by now.

    Instead, by taking the media head-on and attacking THEM as vociferously as they have attacked him, he has essentially largely immunized himself from their blatant partisan attacks.

    The shitlib media, the DNC, Cankles, hell, the GOP as well in the primaries: NONE OF THEM HAVE/HAD A GAME PLAN FOR TRUMP'S GUERILLA TACTICS.

    And that is why Trump will win. (Also the fact that Trump has the better message/arguments which resonate with large swathes of the electorate.)

    I have an Android phone. It does the same thing as Apple: a steady stream of negative news about Trump and barely a mention about Hillary.

    I had one of the early generations of the Android phone and it was glitchy as hell. So then I switched to the iphone and am now too invested in apps and iTunes to turn back. Plus it is low maintenance and does what I need.

    If it's like my news feed, it sends you stories based on your reading history. You probably read a lot of news about Trump, and since most of the stories about Trump are negative (rightfully so, for the most part), you see those stories in your feed.

    Or Apple hates Trump and forgoes algorithms to hand-pick the same articles to send everyone's iPhones, whatever you choose to believe.

    American trust in news media falls to lowest level in history: Gallup poll

    A major pollster has some stark news: “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32 percent saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media.

    Republicans who say they have trust in the media has plummeted to 14 percent. Among Democrats, the number is 51 percent, among independents, it is 30 percent.
