Infamous Podesta will now spread disinformation through the Washington Post
(INTELLIHUB) — In yet another example of the clear bias running through the establishment media, the Washington Post has hired longtime Clinton operative John Podesta as a contributing columnist. The move comes at a time when a vast majority of the American people are already suspicious of establishment news outlets and their obvious leftist bias.
“Podesta, who also served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and a counselor to President Barack Obama, has recently written two op-eds for the Post,” reported Politico.
“The first, published in December, was about the the FBI’s investigation into Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The second, published last week, was about President Donald Trump’s penchant for dismissing all criticism of himself as fake news.”
A laughable statement by Post Editorial Page Editor Free Hiatt regarding the hiring claims that public Clinton shill Podesta will somehow offer readers “vital” insight.
“No one knows more about how Washington works, how the White House operates, and how policy ideas are translated into reality than John Podesta,” read the statement. “His long experience in Congress, inside two Democratic White Houses and on the front lines of numerous presidential campaigns, will offer readers vital insight into Washington and politics at the start of a new era.”
So there you have it, the establishment Washington Post is now paying John Podesta to spread his Clinton-backed disinformation. Corporate media bias doesn’t get much more transparent than this.
Interestingly, this hire is also an important development in the deep states overall attack on all things Trump, especially when you consider that the owner of the Washington Post has a contract with the CIA worth over 500 millions dollars.
As the Nation reported in 2013:
A petition campaign was launched related to news that Amazon, under the Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, recently secured a $600 million contract from the CIA. That’s at least twice what Bezos paid for the Post this year. Bezos recently disclosed that the company’s Web-services business is building a “private cloud” for the CIA to use for its data needs.
Critics charge that, at a minimum, the Post needs to disclose its CIA link whenever it reports on the agency. Over 15,000 have signed the petition this week hosted by RootsAction.
Amazingly, this clear connection between the Washington Post and the CIA revealed itself yet again with the recent column by a former intelligence operative who claimed to have quit over actions taken by President Trump.
What the Post didn’t originally reveal to readers is that the CIA agent had not only donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign but had actually worked directly with Obama officials over the last few years.
To recap, the openly CIA connected Washington Post has hired long-time Clinton shill John Podesta while continuing to be a key part of the deep state run operation to take out the sitting president in what would amount to the end of American democracy.
