Donna Brazile’s book continues to force a massive rift in the Democrat Party, one which even the specter of Tuesday’s electoral victories in VA and NJ won’t mend.
As the NY Post points out, that it has become the big story of late demonstrates that all of this inside politics was kept a secret — had it all already been known, it’d be a non-story.
And among the biggest secrets was the true nature of Hillary’s health issues, about which the campaign and the DNC continued to lie.
Worse is that the liberal media covered it all up by refusing to report on it despite making a big deal about even the slightest questions about Trump’s health.
If the mainstream media had done its job, Hillary’s serial coughing fits, pneumonia and potentially life-threatening ailment would have received further scrutiny.
If it was big enough to force Brazile to consider replacing her with Joe Biden, it was big enough to warrant coverage for a legitimate media.
Here’s more from NY Post…
Silly, silly Donna Brazile. She’s publishing a book detailing turmoil in the Democratic Party during the 2016 campaign, highlighted by her concern that Hillary Clinton was seriously ill and might need to be replaced by Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.
What’s the big deal? There’s no news here because all this was well-known and covered at the time by the big national newspapers and networks, right?
Wrong. If Brazile were rehashing things we knew, there would be no book and no bombshell headlines now.
Instead, she has thrown open a new and very big window on 2016 — and exposed yet again the consequences of the political biases of the Democratic media.
The missed stories are not merely the result of mistakes or sloppy reporting. Brazile’s book is a revelation in that it shows that many left-leaning journalists didn’t so much cover Clinton as cover up for her.
Put it this way: How is it possible that the leader of the Democratic Party was talking to colleagues about trying to replace its nominee during the general election because of health concerns, and none of the thousands of journalists covering the campaign got wind of it?
