Politifact is owned by a leftist shill newspaper in Tampa. Academics have criticized politifact for bias. Snopes is much less biased and by FAR the best out of the fact checkers online. I agree that Clinton was going to win the nomination without DNC help, but the emails make it abundantly clear that Sanders never was given a fair chance by his own party's establishment
Academics have also praised Politifact; it also received a Pulitzer Prize for its work in the 2008 election.

Regardless, is Politifact wrong in this case? Also, did you read the linked article?

We have a candidate who was unfairly propped up by her own party, served as one of the worst SOSs ever, whose judgement almost single handedly lead to the deaths of Americans which she later lied about, who put tons of information at risk of being compromised then lied about it and destroyed evidence, who these were told if she still served in that role would be punished because she betrayed the oath she swore when taking the position, and who is so corrupt she went through all of that to become the presidential candidate....yet there are millions who love her and so many people in the country who will vote for her that she'll probably be the next president.
Spare us the propaganda--much of it already debunked by the GOP-led investigation.  We all know you have to paint Clinton in as poor a light as possible so that you can justify voting for Trump.

I found this interesting:

And an interesting discussion of the chart.

As for the other claims o' badness:

I stated that the Republicans also plant stories with the media. I stand by that claim.

As for the leaked DNC e-mails--yeah, they were unprofessional. Wasserman-Schultz has not been a good chair, imo. And the e-mails are a good example. Hillary was going to win the nomination, regardless--the reach of the Bern, while laudable, was nevertheless limited. That, still, IMO, doesn't justify the shenanigans. Better to use healthy competition to strengthen the party.

As for whether the helicopter/tinfoil comments are still applicable--cocky's quote above makes it pretty clear that it is.

Lmao @ "control the spin".....the DNC is the one doing the spinning. Sure the right might do it as well, but the left has a much larger media machine pushing their narrative as is obvious by anyone that watches various networks.

Plus the DNC actually worked to help make sure Clinton got the nomination and was already planning on how to get her through general election since they had it rigged from the beginning.

Yeah the RNC definitely collaborates with CNN, MSNBC and Washington Post
You would be surprised.

Wait.

You mean to tell me...

Politicians try dirty tactics?
Please. This isn't even dirty tactics. It's just trying to control the spin. Why do you think that speeches are given to the press ahead of time? Hell, why do you think candidates have a press office?

And TRB, please don't say that you're naive enough to think that the RNC doesn't do the same thing.
