Hillary Clinton: Fox and Conservative websites have taken over news, aided and abetted by Facebook

Powered by Topple

Having concluded complaining about the mistreatment she’s never actually faced from the demonstrably left-wing, pro-Clinton media, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has now taken to trashing conservative media and Facebook.

To hear Clinton tell it, there’s a vast right-wing conspiracy at play involving Facebook allowing sinister conservative news outlets — i.e., the ones that didn’t waste three years peddling endless conspiracy theories about Russian collusion or about President Donald Trump being a secret Nazi — to push their “right-wing echo chamber” views …

Fox and the sort of right-wing echo chamber has mastered Facebook, aided and abetted, I might say, by Facebook,” she said Sunday to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.

Listen:

The remarks were made after Zakaria brought up a left-wing propaganda piece from Vox titled, “Facebook’s top news stories are like a window into an alternate dimension.”

For an “alternate dimension,” one need only look at the establishment media

“So I read that article and what that said to me was here it’s Super Tuesday, the Democrats are trying to decide who they want to nominate against Donald Trump, the coronavirus is spreading, we now have more and more reports from different places in the country, but led by Fox News and Breitbart and others, it’s going to be about my e-mails,” Clinton continued.

“A totally, you know, bogus, finished, nonsense attack on me because they know how not only to drive those stories under the radar screen where the mainstream press like yourself are covering. You know, what’s happening now, but they know how to deliver those stories through the algorithms into the feeds of millions and millions of people.”

She was upset because conservative news outlets weren’t following the establishment media’s lead and running endless stories trashing the Trump administration’s otherwise successful response to the coronavirus.

As a legitimate news outlet, Fox was covering the coronavirus itself, as well as other pertinent matters, including bombshell news regarding Clinton’s illicit use of a private email server to transmit classified State Department intelligence.

And while Clinton and her allies in the propagandist media seem hellbent on dismissing this bombshell news as “bogus,” the fact remains that last week a federal judge appointed by former President Ronald Reagan ruled that the former secretary of state could be deposed. That might not be bombshell news in her echo chamber, but it is in the real world.

“So I begrudgingly give them a lot of credit because they are shaping a narrative that is part of the messaging around Trump’s re-election, around people who challenge Trump, changing the subject all of the time,” Clinton’s anti-conservative media rant continued.

She seems to loathe factually accurate “subjects” that make her look atrocious.

During her appearance on CNN, Clinton also claimed she’d support Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders if he won the nomination but cautioned that she doesn’t feel he’s the “strongest candidate.”

“I will support the nominee of the Democratic Party,” she said. “I don’t know if he would ask me to campaign for him, Fareed, because I have no idea what he is thinking about for a general election campaign. As I’ve said many times, I do not think he’s our strongest nominee against Donald Trump.”

She then went on to sing the praises of front-runner candidate Joe Biden, who’s currently facing criticism for supporting one of the most disastrous, job-killing bills in recent American history.

“I think what Joe’s victories on Super Tuesday showed is that he is building the kind of coalition that I had basically,” she said. “It’s a broad-based coalition. I finished, you know, most of the work I needed to do for the nomination on Super Tuesday, and then it kind of lingered on, and I think Joe is on track to doing exactly the same thing: putting together a coalition of voters who are energized.”

The remarks came two days after the release of a Hulu documentary, “Hillary,” in which Clinton claimed she’s the “most investigated innocent person in America.”

“Going all the way back to the Whitewater days. I’ve never understood this and I will go to my grave not understanding it. All these things get disproved, but the press, and I’m talking about the major press, they always bite … And I don’t know why,” she said.

“There’s an old joke about an old guy who is walking along the edge of the cliff, he slips and as he’s falling down and he grabs onto a branch and he’s holding on and he’s praying, going ‘God, God I’ve lived a good life, I’ve done everything I’m supposed to do … please Lord help me, help me.’ And then this voice comes out and says ‘There’s just something about you that pisses me off.’”

If she didn’t live in such an echo-chamber herself, she’d realize how ridiculous her claim sounded.
