On Wall Street: Simple Facts Refuting the Hillary-Bought-and-Sold Narrative


"......So our media focuses on obscure bits of information that help to reinforce negative stereotypes that people may already have of the candidates. Fortunately with Hillary Clinton, they have twenty-five years of smears to choose from to help add drama to an otherwise drama-free presidential primary. Since the vast majority of those smears have been proven false, the media has been forced to turn to conservative Glenn Greenwald and his Intercept website where in January it was reported that Clinton gave paid speeches to a variety of institutions including (gasp!) Wall Street banks. ....."

A lot of info in between:

"......Because saying Hillary Clinton is bought and sold by Wall Street has, and will continue to be, a direct assault on her character rather than her history. The media won't say that she wasn't influenced by Wall Street during her time as United States senator. The media won't say that Wall Street corporations aren't contributing to her 2016 campaign. They'll instead continue to promote the fictional narrative that Hillary Clinton can be bought and sold by big business. That fictional narrative serves to provide commentary for the talking heads on television and, more importantly, gives Bernie Sanders an opportunity to do something, anything, to try and make the Democratic primary competitive until the convention. If the networks can provide even a sliver of doubt regarding Hillary Clinton's eventual nomination then they will do whatever they can to place that seed of doubt into America's collective conscious.

Even if it requires constructing a completely false narrative to do so. "

Recommend: The comment section is also very enlightening.

Really recommend the comments in all the articles!!

Plus, they get rid of trolls very quickly (seems instantaneous so you don't even see them) but the responses to the trolls are so great. They just don't suffer fools at all! lol!

Plus I learn a lot from the comments...
