15. Colin Powell, the guy who stood up in front of the UN and lied us into a war?

That's our standard of 'it must be ok then'?

The email thing kept returning, because those assholes at Wikileaks kept leaking provocative stories whenever they felt it would hurt us the most. Insiders described it in Shattered as an endless drip drip drip that ruined any good days coverage. They knew it was being done deliberately to hurt the campaign, but what are the media supposed to do when a story is leaked? Just ignore it because it might not help one of the candidates?

As for 'grab em by the pussy' and countless other Trump scandals, they really weren't gone in a few days, they were all over the news endlessly, but the shit coming from that vile bastard was so relentless and so shocking, that new stories overshadowed the old. The real question for me is still how the hell didn't those stories kill his campaign? It's not like they were hidden from the public, the public just didn't seem to care.
