Election Integrity

"...Who did more to interfere in the integrity of the U.S. election?  The American news media which forwarded its own 'fake news' to discredit Trump or, if Russia really is behind the hacking, Putin's regime which disclosed some emails that revealed truths about what Clinton's team thought of her opponents?"

Podesta clicked on a phishing link,  allowing hackers to download the Democrat emails.
"The story is about the idiocy of falling for phishing! How is that "hard to see coming"?
And what's the point of tracing it? Just never fall for it and the problem is solved,
wherever the hell it came from. The Russians don't deserve special credit
for devious genius. The Clinton campaign deserves to be lambasted for its
shocking stupidity.  And these are people who wanted to be trusted with the
nuclear codes and who relied on the argument that Donald Trump is a
dangerous ignoramus." Ann Althouse

The press' outrage, today, contrasts sharply with the silence of the press about the 2014 hacks of the White House and State Dept.
The FBI in the high tech world - FBI never examined hacked DNC servers itself   (CIA and FBI have trouble hiring hackers, because the hackers are pot smokers, or have smoked pot.)

The aftermath of defeat is dismal for the Dems -  "...somewhere between 2006 and 2009, Bill Clinton’s formerly competitive Democratic party aged and then evaporated.  
It was replaced by a hard-left coastal coalition, a pyramidal party — ethnic-identity groups at the base and wealthy elites on top, all united by a mutual disdain for the
half of the population that covers 85 percent of the geography.  What followed were universities, Hollywood, the media, and the wealthy damning supposed “white privilege”(...),
as those who did not have privilege were damned by those who most certainly did."  Victor Davis Hanson
