The “Access Hollywood” tape showing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump making lewd remarks about women was purposefully leaked to The Washington Post by NBC’s top brass in a bid to influence the 2016 election, an insider source has claimed.
“Trump was leading in the polls, so the tape was leaked to derail his bid,” the source told the New York Post. “NBC handed over the scoop of the year to WaPo just to help Hillary.”
Moreover, the network has reportedly refused to launch an investigation into who leaked the tape and why, thus suggesting that the leak was “sanctioned by the people at the top,” according to the source.
NBC was also in possession of a video that could be highly damaging to Trump’s opponent, Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, but was refusing to release it.
This video reportedly showed Juanita Broaddrick, one of the many women who has accused Clinton’s husband of sexual assault, admitting during a 1999 interview that Clinton herself threatened her after the rape occurred in 1978.
“She claims Hillary had grabbed her hand and thanked her for ‘everything you do for Bill,” the Post reported. “Broaddrick added that when she tried to pull away, Hillary looked her in the eye and firmly repeated the same line, ‘which she assumed was a threat. Hillary wanted her to keep her silence.’”
Were this video released, it could conceivably engender a drop in the polls for Clinton — much like the release of the “Access Hollywood” video has caused Trump’s own poll numbers to slide. But apparently, NBC was too invested in the Democrat candidate’s presidential election to risk damaging her chances by acting like an objective, unbiased news outlet.
Shocking, I know.
Such a plot by a generally respected media outlet ought to enrage every American citizen, regardless of his or her political affiliation. If these reports are true — and probably even if they aren’t, to be honest — NBC is purposefully trying to drive a one-sided narrative to influence one of the most important events in the American political process. This is simply unacceptable.
