Wikileaks: Journalists Dined at Top Clinton Staffers' Homes Days Before Hillary's Campaign Launch

Several top journalists and TV news anchors RSVPed “yes” to attend a private, off-the-record gathering at the New York home of Joel Benenson, the chief campaign strategist for Hillary Clinton, two days before she announced her candidacy in 2015, according to emails Wikileaks has published from John Podesta’s purported accounts.

The guest list for an earlier event at the home of John Podesta was limited to reporters who were expected to cover Clinton on the campaign trail.

The email thread starts with Jesse Ferguson, the campaign’s Deputy National Press Secretary and Senior Spokesman, describing the venues and target audience of each gathering:

We wanted to make sure everyone on this email had the latest information on the two upcoming dinners with reporters. Both are off-the-record.

1) Thursday night, April 9th at 7:00p.m. Dinner at the Home of John Podesta… This will be with about 20 reporters who will closely cover the campaign (aka the bus).

2) Friday night, April 10th at 6:30p.m. Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvre at the Home of Joel Benenson… This is with a broader universe of New York reporters.

The “broader universe of New York reporters” includes several top news anchors for network and cable channels, many of whom are listed as a “yes” for the appearance:

Here is a glaring example of why the MSM sucks, especially at the top.

And all of you little newspapers and radio and TV stations, you're part of the plot, too, giving unqualified credence to these reporters, airing and printing the lies verbatim, even though you know they're lies; you push nothing but the Clinton agenda on trusting viewers, listeners and readers.

You are the small, self-important rats that carry the fleas that carry a plague that infects America.

Nora said this morning, in a statement disguised as a question, that the election is already over and Hillary won.

I wonder how much she got paid for that plug.

You should have seen the number of network reporters invited to the Presidential dinner last night! Prominent were black reporters from ABC and NBC as well as white liberals and kiss ass reporters!
The dress that Michelle Obama wore was hideous!

Lose the fedora, dude. You're indoors and we know that you're bald.
And if you really want to resurrect that look, stick your press card in the hatband like the reporters did in the movies your parents watched 60 years ago.
