Still Report #939 – AP Called Clinton Race Early to Suppress Bernie Vote in CA

from Bill Still

lass=”” >According to veteran political strategist Pat Caddell, appearing on Breitbart News Daily, the Associated Press deliberately announced prematurely that Hillary Clinton had finally gained the Democrat presidential nomination before polls had closed in California, thereby suppressing the Bernie vote in that state.
“It was a purposefully irresponsible act, in my opinion,” said Caddell.
“It’s beyond irresponsible to the Nth degree. It affects the vote.”
“You put your thumb on the scales, knowing everyone will report it.
“The AP was once the great … essentially unbiased, news-gathering organization around the world.“

Bernie Sanders campaign spokesperson Michael Briggs said in a statement:
“Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination.”
“She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then.”
“They include more than 400 superdelegates who endorsed Secretary Clinton 10 months before the first caucuses and primaries and long before any other candidate was in the race.”
Pat Caddell also talked about the one-sided coverage the MSM has given to Donald Trump.

“…they go after Donald Trump for everything. I’m for candidates being vetted. What I’m against is when one candidate is vetted, and the other candidate is not covered at all, basically.”
Caddell quoted an unnamed friend of his is the news business:
“My God, to enter the newsrooms at the New York Times and the Washington Post is to enter a freaking jihad against Donald Trump.”
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
