Clinton’s much paraded viability as a candidate is disgusting not because she does not have my support, but because it is manufactured by exactly the campaign impulse I feared when I first posted my very first blog: voter manipulation.
Mainstream media — ABC, CNN, FOX, even NYTimes — are tripping over themselves in drumming up support for Clinton by publishing/highlighting every single spin on her viability/electability, despite the factual reality of her faltering campaign.
What a shame. It is lamentable that this charade of Clinton-as-viable-nominee must go on and the media, whom in theory ought to have our back — who ought to exist in opposition to the ‘establishment’ — is in on it. Communities least able to sift through the Clinton/big Media trash will be most manipulated. And once again, the fat elite will win.
At some point, we need to turn the page and move on.
