How to defame your liberal grandpa
At the opening of the Democratic primary campaign, a single political story was very influential on defaming Bernie Sanders. It beautifully walked the line of libel in that it quoted Bernie directly saying he ran for the media coverage. This upset more than a few Democratic voters who instantly made the connection of an abusive lover. It ultimately inspired a meme with a pig-nosed Bernie deciding to do "anything before he helps Hillary out" as well as one comparing both him and Ralph Nader to leeches. They were instantly regretted by their formulators when the anti-Semitism was pointed out. Fortunately, the responsible parties for the ideological slander are being found out.
simple debunk on NPR that would have been enough shake the more forgiving primary voter was rarely cited. But a pro-Bush PAC writer wasted no time connecting the essay to a 2000 vote on due process for HIV testing of rapists and was apparently picked up by her supporters and memorized and weaponized to seriously defame Clinton's opponent as a rape-enabler (see notes below).
I would like to indulge myself in weird philosophies underling this Bernaysian/McCarthyist history and exactly why weaponizing race, gender and sex into economic ideology is awful for the sexual and economic health of the most vulnerable in the country but more evidence has come to light that simply blows out of the water any distance the DNC could have from an attempt to steal the election.

The use of intelligence groups to influence popular opinion is a long-running joke in American intelligence. Henry Kissinger liked to quip "that wasn't you?"when he saw an especially appalling example.
According to Wikileaks (hat tip to @JustDigginBlues), a regime-change security expert with friends in a voting voting machines company (Oracle) said he would help the DNC in "any way he can" including media rigging. This friend who is "very hard working and smart" and "willing to relocate anywhere, and is immediately available" would "jump into the election" and "be great for your team/s." According to his resume, he was already working at Hillary For America, and has "[p]laced 100+ stories and op-eds in outlets including: NYT, WSJ, LA Times, Bloomberg, Reuters, Mashable, and Fortune" and for the campaigns of "California delegation to COP21 with Gov. Jerry Brown, Tom Teyer, SolarCity, and PG&E."
The job can't be a media expert, he's already pushing the limit on influencing the media as a member of Hillary For America. What is the resume for? Paul Hamill, the man who sent the email detailing his friend's skills, himself worked as "strategic communications advisor to the Minister of Information in Kabul, where he developed full strategic communications processes and plans for the Minister as well as drafted narratives and speeches for the Government of Afghanistan" which often resorts to "widespread fraud." It's very possible, and a reasonable thing to conclude that the election was rigged through a combination of media manipulation and e-voting ballot stuffing.
The primary election process of Hillary Clinton was marred with personal libel facilitated by a supposedly neutral media and neutral election machines which cannot be verified as neutral. To prevent the endorsement of a fraudulent election, the previous nomination process should be subject to heavy scrutiny before any other votes are sanctioned.
According to watchdog group Sourcewatch, Politico is published by the heir of a coup-interested banking fortune:
Politico's "publisher, Robert L. Allbritton, 37, scion of the banking and media family that once owned the defunct Washington Star, said in an interview that he would finance The Politico for 'the foreseeable future' and has committed to paying for expensive campaign travel. He has hired a staff of about 50 people, almost half of them journalists," Kara Rowland reported January 22, 2007, in The Washington Times.
"Newspapers have to be all things to all people,' Mr. Allbritton said. 'On the Internet, there is no one site that delivers everything. It’s broken down into mini-mini-subdivisions of interests and they attract people who are passionately interested in one subject.' ...
Allbritton "is best known for following his father, Joe L. Allbritton, as chief executive of the Riggs Bank, which was sold in 2004 after a Senate investigation found that Gen. Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, had kept millions of dollars in secret accounts at Riggs.
