Why Does The "Media" Ignore The Ties Between Clinton Foundation Donors And Deals They Get?

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Election Reform group).

I have read a lot about who some of the Clinton Foundation Donors are, and the fact they had "business" they wanted to do. They appeared to get their deals approved too. The most shining example is Mark Rich's wife giving The Foundation a million dollars, and her scum bag criminal tax cheat husband getting a pardon.

What I have read looks real bad, and I have not heard one word about the possible dirty deals in the media.

Fail.

4. Bernie's "ONE" issue is the whole ballgame.

 

What don't the Hillary supporters get about the Clinton Foundation's pay to play. Our democracy has become a farce to the big money intetests.

7. Its not just one issue, its thousands-

of individual crooked institutions- which spent large amounts of money for - what? What were they buying?

they dont spend that money for nothing.

We're all just fed up. Its cheating to have two parties both acting this way.

8. Chomsky

I think Noam Chomsky wrote a book and had a movie about this

also I wonder how bad we are being manipulated - if you look at the psychological tests done back in the 50's for subliminal advertising etc - how much more advanced would it be now -
