WikiLeaks exposes Politico’s chief political correspondent as a hack for Podesta

WikiLeaks, a breath of fresh air for some — the worst nightmare for others.

Glenn Thrush, the chief political correspondent for Politico, told John Podesta that he was a “hack” for sending an entire section of an article pertaining to Podesta for approval before publication. To conceal his lack of journalistic integrity, Thrush asks  Podesta to “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this.”

The exchange between Thrush and Podesta was revealed by Wikileaks (Podesta Email 12681). In the email, Thrush sends several paragraphs about Hillary’s fundraising operation and leads into the article by admitting, “Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u.” After asking Podesta not to “share or tell anyone I did this,” Thrush seeks Podesta’s approval on the article by saying, “Tell me if I [f**ked] up anything.”

Shortly afterward, Podesta replies to Thrush with his approval, saying on the record, “no problems here.”

Betcha Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who’d like to see Julien Assange droned.
