And why does the mainstream news media think it is ethical to let her get away with it?
A YouTuber named Spanglevision decided to do the job that the mainstream news media has resolved to forgo, checking up on a suspicious Hillary Clinton campaign moment that seemed to good to be true.
At a Hillary Clinton town hall yesterday in Haverford, Pennsylvania, a 15 year old girl was supposedly chosen at random to ask a question of her own devising. She delivered a carefully worded query that she read from a script:
“Hi Madam Secretary. I’m Brennan and I’m 15 years old. At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age. I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look. As the first female president how would you undo some of that damage and help girls understand that they’re so much more than just what they look like?”
“I’m so proud of you for asking that question. You are right — my opponent has just taken this concern to a new level of difficulty and meanness. And, it’s shocking when women are called names and judged solely on the basis of physical attributes.* My opponent insulted Miss Universe. I mean, how do you get more acclaimed than that? But, it wasn’t good enough. So we can’t take any of this seriously any more. We need to laugh at it. We need to refute it. We need to ignore it. And we need to stand up to it.”
Investigation yielded the fact that that the “random” participant was child actress Brennan Leach Her father is Pennsylvania democratic State Senator Daylin Leach, a Hillary Clinton ally. Brennan has performed in her father’s campaign ads, and also in a commercial release: she has an entry in the Internet movie data base. Thus it was a lie to present the girl as a randomly chosen questioner, and it was a lie to create the illusion that Clinton was answering a spontaneous question.
Then the news media took the falsely presented episode and spread the lie far and wide as truth.
As Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge illustrates, the fakery was presented as authentic by the New York Times….
Did any of these news organizations do the investigation that Spanglevision instantly perceived was warranted?
Doesn’t the public have a right to know when it is being conned?
Isn’t it the news media’s duty, and not YouTube denizens, to protect that right?
Isn’t it worth finding out if the woman claiming to be honest and trustworthy engages in cynical stunts like staging questions and answering with, “I’m so proud of you for asking that question”?
If Hillary Clinton really is so qualified and the best candidate for the job, why does she not feel she can win the election on her merits?
Why does she have to resort to misrepresentations and lies?
Why does she always resort to misrepresentations and lies?
How do honest, ethical, informed voters justify supporting someone this cynical, dishonest and corrupt? (She’s also participating in the corruption of a minor by involving Brennan is this scam.)
Are there honest, ethical, informed voters who support Hillary, or have they all been corrupted too?
So far, none of the allegedly legitimate news organizations who helped Clinton execute this deception have reported that it was staged.
Let’s see if any do, or bother to investigate on their own. It’s unlikely, because, as the Clinton campaign has taught them, the ends justify the means.
*It is especially ridiculous that this episode involves a Miss Universe, who is by definition judged by her appearance alone.
