Conservatives have always suspected that “unbiased” networks like CNN, CNBC and CBS are actually left-wing news-machines, skewing their narratives and telling half-truths to satisfy their ideology, and now, CNN has, once again, confirmed those suspicions. Elise Labott, who was recently suspended from CNN for her biased tweet concerning a different slip-up, has been caught coordinating with Clinton aide, Phillip Reines, confirmed via emails obtained by Gawker, in order to smear Republican Senator Rand Paul and bolster support for Hillary Clinton.
Labott, the foreign affairs reporter at CNN, worked with Reines to "craft two tweets that were eventually published by Labott: one slamming Rand Paul, the other involving a specific quote from Clinton proclaiming her transparency during the Benghazi investigation held by the Accountability Review Board, a board of Clinton appointees,” according to Breitbart News.
Per the Daily Caller:
In the Reines emails, which are the subject of a Gawker lawsuit against the State Department, Labott appears to pick up on a previous conversation she was having with Reines during the Benghazi hearing, asking him: “are you sure rand paul wasn’t at any hearings?”
Five minutes after sending that email, Labott sent Reines another message sharing what she had tweeted about Paul.
Hours later, Labott and Reines were at it again.
“She was great. well done. I hope you are going to have a big drink tonight,” Labott wrote to Reines, complimenting Clinton’s performance.
Reines followed up that compliment by telling Labott that he had “suggested a good Tweet.”
Labott said that she had not received an email concerning another tweet. Reines wrote back “Pin,” an apparent reference to a private messaging system.
Labott wrote back “will get back to you.” Eleven minutes later she sent an email reading, “done.”
Here’s an image of the actual emails back-and-forth between Lobott and Reins:
In another confirmation that mainstream media are biased, Politico’s Mike Allen—trying to score an interview with Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea—assured a Clinton aide that the interview would be “no-risk,” “no surprises,” favorable to Chelsea and even suggested that the two create the questions together.
John Nolte of Breibart News notes the two chief reasons the emails are still being ignored by the “DC Media”:
- Everyone in the DC Media is guilty of coordinating with Democrats. They are all guilty of it, and if they go after Politico and CNN, they are all worried about being exposed with similar emails that will show NBC News, The Washington Post, CBS, The New York Times, etc., coordinating with Democrats.
- The DC Media is one big, oily, corrupt, rotted family that does not compete with one another. Instead, they coordinate — not just with Democrats but on Narratives. It is not a coincidence that every DC Media outlet in America focuses on the same stories in the exact same way. They all share the same goals and protect one another. Brian Williams and Dan Rather are exceptions that prove the rule; corruption so heinous it can’t be buried.
The media has been “in the tank” for the Democrats for years; it only gets worse as time goes on. The left-wing monopoly of the media looks impregnable; how can you get the mainstream media to call out the mainstream media?
"It is not a coincidence that every DC Media outlet in America focuses on the same stories in the exact same way."

On the upside, this election cycle has produced many strong Republican presidential candidates such as Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump who are unafraid to call out the media for its bias. Coupled with a strong online presence of new-media and conservative outlets, the conservatiove movement is slowly starting to chip-away at the "unbiased" media facade.
