Media Blackout Over Lawsuit Accusing DNC Of Rigging Primaries

The mainstream media proceed to censor protection of a looming DNC lawsuit that accuses the Democrat Party of rigging the 2016 primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Since October 2016, when the lawsuit was issued, reporters and pundits have ignored a lawsuit that appears set to show that the Democratic National Committee systemically rigged the primaries with a purpose to guarantee Hillary Clinton received over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

The lawsuit was issued after stunning paperwork surfaced by hacker Guccifer that exhibits the occasion and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman colluding “by some means” to make Sanders lose.

The class-action go well with was filed within the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in October, accusing each the DNC and Wasserman Schultz of “intentional, willful, wanton, and malicious” conduct in violating Article 5, Section four of the DNC Charter. experiences: They  symbolize three courses of plaintiffs: donors to the DNC, donors to the Bernie Sanders marketing campaign, and all registered Democrats — they usually need their a refund.

On April 25, the courtroom held a listening to on a movement to dismiss, with the DNC’s legal professionals arguing that the occasion has each proper to choose candidates in again rooms.

“There’s no contractual obligation here … it’s not a situation where a promise has been made that is an enforceable promise,” DNC lawyer Bruce Spiva argued in courtroom.

The main information organizations shunned the controversy and allowed it to slide into near-oblivion as they hammered President Trump.

An article printed Saturday on the liberal progressive web site Salon notes that the mainstream media “almost completely blacked out coverage of this lawsuit.”

A author for the Observer wrote on Monday: “In large part, the mainstream media [have] not covered the lawsuit in the six months between the court’s initial hearings in October 2016 to its latest hearing on April 25, 2017.”

The revelation that the Democratic Party is ok with rigging elections, and has no qualms about mendacity to its members and pretending to be impartial, is definitely attention-grabbing information. But many within the media apparently didn’t need anybody to pay an excessive amount of consideration to this.

“For Sanders supporters, the lawsuit provides an opportunity for vindication for being cheated and attacked by the Democratic establishment,” Observer reporter Michael Sainato wrote. “Now, the DNC is on record arguing that its voters have no reason to trust it to maintain free and fair elections.”

“Spiva’s defense is blatant proof that despite the fact that the DNC fashions itself as the party of the people, it is openly and clearly an oligarchy — a fact also made clear by its use of superdelgates,” Salon author Sophia McClennen wrote.

A WikiLeaks doc dump additionally revealed that former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile appeared to favor Clinton when she leaked a Democratic main debate query to Clinton in an e mail. Sanders supporters cried fowl. But the media largely spurned them in favor of dogging Trump.

“The elephant in the room for the DNC isn’t Trump or the GOP or Bernie bros or Russian hackers; it is its own elitist, corporatist, cronyist, corrupt system that consistently refuses to listen to the will of the people it hopes to represent,” McClennen wrote. “This all proves that the DNC has a serious problem not only with the democratic process but also with the very idea of representing the will of its constituents.”
