Did the Media Just Fall Hook, Line, and Sinker for a Clinton Campaign Stunt?

Image result for clinton media biasIt was a moment that put a human face to the arguments the Hillary Clinton campaign had been forwarding for months. At a Clinton rally in Pennsylvania, a 15-year-old girl spoke from the heart about how Donald Trump‘s bullying made her concerned about her peers. “At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age,” Brennan Leach said. “I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look.” It was a concern that had been amplified days earlier by Trump’s renewed attacks on model Alicia Machado, who Trump allegedly called “Miss Piggy” after she gained weight.

Clinton couldn’t have asked for a better question, and she even said as much (“Thank you!” she shouted at Leach). With such a perfect moment came of course a flood of media coverage. But was it perhaps a little too perfect?

Buried deep in The New York Times story on the moment are a few tidbits that sound the faintest of alarms. Leach’s father, we learn over a dozen paragraphs in, “helped her form the question that had so excited Mrs. Clinton.” Her father is also vaguely referred to as a “local politician.” His full name, office, and political affiliation are left to the reader’s imagination.

Luckily, we live in the age of Google. A simple search reveals that Leach’s father is Democratic State Senator Daylin Leach, and also the Chairman of the Senate Democratic Campaign Committee. Leach endorsed Clinton over her rival Bernie Sanders during the primaries, saying, “At a time when the Republican Presidential candidates seem to be stoking the flames of fear and anger, I have never been more proud to support Hillary Clinton for President.”

I find it hard to believe that The Times found out Leach was a politician but somehow failed to follow up on these very basic facts. It sounds more like they ended up being cut from the final piece because they dulled the impact of the story. An everyday girl spooked by Donald Trump’s rhetoric fits a narrative. A teen being raised and directed by their Democratic politician parent to dislike the Republican presidential candidate… doesn’t.

Check her past with bills girlfriends. Monica, Jennifer Flowers.

The totally corrupt media doesn't fall for it, - they are partners in crime. They've been the 8 year anti-American mouthpiece for the Obama regime and now Clintonista propaganda. If they're not acting as the 24/7 Praetorian guardsmen for all the Socialist DEMs, they are the slimy smear machine against conservatives and the entire GOP. Turn them OFF!

Objective journalism has died a long time a long. Now they take their marching orders from Media Matters, MoveOn, and Valerie Jarrett. Anything spoken to the contrary on air, will result in a suspension. Just don't EVER publicly question Hillary's health. NOPE! Just ask the former Huffington Post writer, David Seaman. How's that for lock-step gratitude, Comrade?

Just another made up sad story that turns out to be a KILLERY lie, if the BITCH of Bengazi ever told the truth she would have a coughing fit and die,any thing she does has to have a lying set up behind it and her lying conspiritors have taken every thing they can conjure up to perpetuate their propaganda,even if it means getting their children to lie that is really sinking lower and lower

The story of this teenage girl is so contrived that it should make people very angry and upset... How many times have we seen such managed and contrived items in the MEDIA... unchecked and often manufactured out of thin air? This sort of journalism is nothing but poorly scripted propaganda.  Only the ill informed and uninformed voter would give credence to such stories.

This is just more evidence of the bias and poorly contrived MEDIA support for...  Sec. Clinton. 

The MAIN STREET MEDIA is brainless, and would follow their own shadow if told that's the way to go.

 The MAIN STREET MEDIA LACKS THE DESIRE OR WILL TO DO WHATS RIGHT, GOOD, AND JUST, because THE DEMOCRAT PARTY SAYS SO.

AS MY BRILLIANT MOTHER ONCE SAID: IF THEY TOLD YOU TO JUMP OFF A CLIFF WOULD YOU DO IT?????

THE CURRENT MAIN STREET MEDIA ARE LEMMINGS AND ------YES THEY WOULD JUMP OFF A CLIFF IF HILLARY AND THE DEMO PARTY SAID TO BECAUSE THEY WERE TOLD TO AND TAUGHT TO BY THEIR COLLEGE PROFESSORS NOT THEIR PARENTS!

AND THAT IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH AMERICA TODAY! OUR YOUNG HAVE NO BACKBONE BECAUSE THEIR PARENTS NEVER TAUGHT THEM WHATS RIGHT. THEY WERE TAUGHT BY LIBERAL TEACHERS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE TO ACCEPT THE PROGRESSIVES WAY OF LIFE, FOOD STAMPS, UNEMPLOYMENT, WELFARE, OBAMA CARE, AND PART MIN WAGE JOB,S AS NOBODY GETS OUT OF POVERTY, THEY NEED TO WAKE UP AND TO STAND UP AND SAY------- NO....NO MORE PROGRESSIVISM IN AMERICA ITS DESTROYING THIS-- [OUR]---COUNTRY!

VOTE FOR TRUMP HE HAS THE WAY BACK TO PROSPERITY AND HE WILL PLACE EXCELLENT MINDS AROUND HIM TO HELP GUIDE THE WAY! JUST AS REAGAN DID!

It seems that some 30 politicians who were or are NOW awol REPUBLICANS but I believe they are PLANTS in the REPUBLICAN PARTY and are denouncing TRUMP.....................SEEMS THOSE 30  TO believe they can sway the Millions who will vote TRUMP--- who will stop this PROGRESSIVE madness in our political system.

PROGRESSIVE POLITICIANS WILL GO AND DO ANYTHING--I MEAN ANYTHING TO STAY IN POWER.

Finally these plants in the Republican Party.....understand that their backs are against the wall now and they are pulling out all stops and showing their true colors.....TIME TO LEAVE THE REP PARTY AND DEFECT TO WHERE YOU WERE FROM.

The very long list of mistakes, misdeeds, Fraud, lack of accomplishments, just elevates Hillary in the polls, but let it be known that Trump kicked a cat when he was 3 and he's done

Just goes to show you that the BO administration does control all news outlets in America & that Hitlery is a CUT-THROAT PIG! The Clinton's' will stoop to all time lows for sex, money & lies. Must not forget about those 120 people who have mysteriously passed because they had info on both scumbags!

The democratic party will do anything, say anything, to win this election.  Too bad for America!  The woman and young people will destroy this country along with the people who don't work and the minorities.  They outnumber us now  and their sense of entitlement eliminates any rational thoughts.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
