But Her emailzzzzzzz….
Here’s a great post by Digby regarding the emails pseudo controversy and how it begat President Trump. The big worry is that it will continue — and there are signs it already is. As long as Russian bots set what trends, our news media will follow it - not from a sense of “it’s out there” nor from wanting to be “balance fairies”. They will follow it because like our social media megacorporations they know that’s where the false clicks are, and that’s where the money is. It’s about the revenue, and always has been.
This is for the record. It’s in the past. The problem is that they do not seem to have learned their lesson. When the Democratic nominee is decided I expect that they will immediately start to gobble up the usual right-wing character assassination, assuring themselves that they have to do it “because it’s out there.”
