Tyler Durden — Zero Hedge Clinton Escalates Attacks Against Russia's "Direct Assault On Our Democracy"

While not as detailed as ours, here is The Hill's rendition of how the Clinton campaign recently handled what was described as a"blistering conference call with reporters" in which Hillary and her team scolded the media for failing to launch effective counter attacks to protect her from her own email scandal.

The Clinton campaign gathered its top national security advisers for a blistering conference call with reporters on Friday, framing the email dump as a provocative cyber-attack by foreign adversaries with ties to terror groups.

The advisers described the hacks as unprecedented interference in the U.S. election that threatens the nation’s sovereignty, and warned there would be “consequences” for the hackers and potentially the “Russian state actors” supporting them.

The campaign lashed out at Trump, arguing he is encouraging the behavior. They questioned whether he and his advisers, driven by their own foreign business interests, have conspired to aid the Russians.
And Clinton’s allies fumed at the media’s coverage of the leaked emails, saying the focus has been on trivial political minutia rather than the national security implications.
The Clinton campaign arguing they're being treated unfairly by the mainstream media...that's rich.
Distract, distract, distract.

However, there is also a subtext here. Like Donald trump, HRC is well-known for getting even. Anyone who crosses her is on the list. For news people, this means denial of access, which is a career killer. 
There is no mystery behind US media control by an elite that can grant or deny access without accountability. That is the end of a free press, an institution necessary for representative democracy. This is a "direct assault on our democracy."

Another day, another data dump. In what has become a daily routine, one which forces the Clinton campaign to bring up ever starker (most sexual) scandals involving Trump to provide a media distraction, moments ago Wikileaks released yet another roughly 1,150 emails in Part 8 of its ongoing Podesta Email dump, which brings the total number of released emails to 10,169.

With another 39,000 or so emails left until election day, we expect the emergence of another Trump "sexual assault" accuser to emerge momentarily, just as we predicted yesterday and were proven right not once but twice. After all the public must be distracted from what truly matters.
