RUSH: Show prep for the rest of media. Let me illustrate it, audio sound bite number one. You remember the open to yesterday’s program where I was going through the latest Hillary e-mail dump, and I said, “You know what, folks, I think I figured out the strategy. The drip, drip, drip, drip, drip drip, drip is just to wear us out. It’s beginning to work on me. It’s starting to bore me. There’s no resolution to this. There doesn’t appear to be any end in sight. There’s just gonna be more drip, drip, drip, drip, drip.
And then later in the program we shared with you a media montage where the word “mundane” was used by several Drive-By reporters to describe the Hillary e-mail scandal. And this morning on Fox News America’s Newsroom Bill Hemmer talking with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard.
HEMMER: Another day of this story that goes drip, drip, drip.
HAYES: Yeah, you know, I think this was actually a pretty big drip although it’s not necessarily being treated as such by most of the mainstream media. Most of the media coverage of it, people are focusing on sort of the quirky things, the TV shows she was interested in, like gefilte fish controversy, not the serious, I think, potential violations of law.
RUSH: That’s exactly the point. The drip, drip, drip is blurring everybody’s attention, and they’re not focusing on that. The drip, drip, drip does include some earth-shattering news, revelations, and then even Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, she’s fed up. NewsBusters: “Andrea Mitchell on Hillary E-Mails: ‘Are We Ever Going to Get Out of This Cycle?’ — Fretting over Hillary ClintonÂ’s ongoing e-mail scandal on Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell wondered when the story would end: ‘Are we ever going to get out of this cycle? Is she ever going to get out of this cycle?’
“The Washington PostÂ’s Chris Cillizza bemoaned: ‘…when the federal judge ordered the release of these things at pretty regular intervals….this was the worst outcome for her presidential hopes….We’re not talking about her plan for college affordability. We’re not talking about energy. We’re not talking about income inequality.'”
The media is getting fed up. The media is getting bored, at least they say they are, which I think is the purpose here. But there is some earth-shattering news in these latest e-mails. Not that there hasn’t been up to now. “At least four classified Hillary Clinton emails had their markings changed to a category that shields the content from Congress and the public, Fox News has learned, in what State Department whistleblowers believed to be an effort to hide the true extent of classified information on the former secretary of stateÂ’s server. … The four emails originally were marked classified after a review by career officials at the State Department. But after a second review by the department’s legal office, the designation was switched to ‘B5’ — also known as ‘deliberative process,’ which refers to internal workings.”
So what we have here, we have two things here. The Drive-Bys are letting us know that they’re bored with it, they’re not interested in it, which means they have no desire to follow this to a conclusion that is harmful to Hillary, which we knew. I mean, they circle the wagons around her. In fact, they are furious, they want us to believe, the Drive-Bys are, that this Hillary e-mail story is preventing them from addressing the issues of the Democrat presidential campaign, which means that they are being obstructed from advancing the liberal agenda.
That’s what Andrea Mitchell’s really ticked off about. This e-mail story is standing in the way of them being able to promote liberalism and advance the Democrat Party agenda and Obama and the Iran deal.
