The NBC conspiracy against Trump
Another Example of Why America Doesn’t Trust the Media
NBC executives learned of the Billy Bush/Trump video tape during the Summer Olympics and decided to delay its release until closer to the election. The decision to delay release of the tape was made at the highest levels of the news organization primarily because NBC executives were worried that Julian Assange’s “October Surprise” could devastate Hillary Clinton’s campaign. NBC had prepared a “sanitized” version of the tape that hid Billy Bush’s involvement — specifically his goading Trump to hug his co-host — and the release was to coincide with the release of the Wikileaks on Friday two days before the second debate.
Top NBC executives decided to delay the release of the tape due to the impending hurricane — a hurricane that was predicted to devastate the eastern seaboard of the United States. The polls were showing Trump and Clinton to be neck and neck and the big concern in the NBC newsroom was that if the tape was not released before the debate ALL of the attention would be focused on the leaked emails — risking giving Trump a lead in the polls. Someone in the newsroom decided that the tape had to be aired and aired quickly (the Wikileaks emails had just hit the wires ten minutes earlier). They sent the full tape (not the edited tape) to the Washington Post and it was published shortly after in full.
NBC had no intention of disciplining Billy Bush primarily because was the one who alerted them to the recording. But when the unedited tape hit the air NBC decided they had to fire him. They knew about his behavior and comments in July and only after someone in their newsroom forced their hand did they make the decision that Bill Bush had to go. NBC is not a news organization — they’re a corrupt propaganda organization. We’re worried about the Russians influencing our elections — we’ve got proof that NBC IS influencing our elections.
