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:

New York Times: “Early Voting Could Point to Hillary Clinton Victory Well Before Nov. 8”

ABC News: “Irish Bookies Are So Confident Clinton Will Win, They’re Already Paying Out”

Steve Goldstein, DC Bureau Chief of MarketWatch: “The election’s over — Hillary Clinton won”

NPR: “NPR Battleground Map: Hillary Clinton Is Winning — And It’s Not Close”

Los Angeles Times: “Even lots of Donald Trump’s supporters are starting to think he’ll lose the election”

And several outlets are even setting expectations for a Clinton “landslide”:

FiveThirtyEight: “Should Clinton Play For An Electoral College Landslide?”

Washington Post: “As Trump stumbles, Clinton weighs a striking choice: Expand the map or stick to the plan”

Vox: “The polls are split between Hillary Clinton winning and … Hillary Clinton winning in a landslide”

The drumbeat of an inevitable Clinton victory recalls an Associated Press story one day before the California Democratic primary.
