Voter Suppression: Corporate Media Declare Victory for Hillary Clinton Weeks Before Election
Posted by addisethiopia on October 19, 2016
A host of establishment media outlets are declaring victory for Hillary Clinton weeks before the U.S. presidential election — as they did on the eve of the Democratic primary in California, causing Bernie Sanders supporters to suspect coordinated voter suppression.A couple of headlines from the past week show the pro-Clinton talking point in wide circulation:
Steve Goldstein, DC Bureau Chief of MarketWatch: “The election’s over — Hillary Clinton won”
And several outlets are even setting expectations for a Clinton “landslide”:
FiveThirtyEight: “Should Clinton Play For An Electoral College Landslide?”
The drumbeat of an inevitable Clinton victory recalls an Associated Press story one day before the California Democratic primary.
