Wikileaks: Clinton camp took cell phones from donors, imposed strict press rules on campaign events

Hillary Clinton scripts pressAn email released by Wikileaks revealed that the Clinton campaign imposed a series of strict rules regarding the use of cell phones and the press at campaign events, no doubt in an effort to conceal low turnout at some events and ensure consistent reports from the lapdog media.

Kristina Schake of Hillary for America proposed the following:

Less than 100 people – NO cell phones, NO press.

Over 100 people YES cell phones, and ONE print pooler will be escorted in for her remarks only and then escorted out. NO tv cameras.

Over 500 people in a public space – YES cell phones, OPEN press (all >>> press access including tv cameras).

At fundraisers in private homes NO tv cameras no matter the size. ONE print pooler only.

Jesse suggested this for guests at fundraisers under 100 people – let us know what you think:

“Since the event is not open to cameras from the media b/c of space, we will be asking you to check your cell phones so images aren’t released from the event that were unavailable to the media. We take our relationship with the press seriously and don’t want them to be at a disadvantage”

Huma Abedin responded: “[T]his is not ideal but i (sic) realize there is precedent we have to follow”

A post at Infowars added:

The “no cell phone” rule may also prevent camera flashes from triggering Hillary into having a seizure.

Meanwhile, the only relationship Republican nominee Donald Trump has with the media is a hostile affair, with media titan Bill O’Reilly saying he’s “100% convinced” that at least 3 big media outlets have “ordered their employees to destroy Trump.”

As we noted here, O’Reilly said that anyone in those organizations supporting Trump are basically finished.

“I’m talking about big conglomerates,” he said.  “News organizations have sent, not officially but through the corporate grapevine, [word] that we don’t want anybody supporting Trump. If you study it, you can see which ones they are.”

So much for “transparency.”
