Yep, let’s get big money out of politics

Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.

  1. Are you telling me that a businessman could spend significantly less than a politician – and still achieve a superior result?

    Gadzooks. What has the world come to?

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    Not to mention all the free publicity she got from the big established media companies like CNN.

    The Left should be celebrating – the son of an immigrant has overcome the Big Money Establishment candidate and is leading a popular insurgency against Old Money interests. It is a great story. I look forward to the Hollywood film.

    Perhaps Arnie can play Trump?

  3. Trump got plenty of help from the legacy press. Every day they had a story of “Did you hear what Trump said today ?!?!” They thought they were killing him, but, indeed, they were getting him elected.

  4. Politics, money, backhanders and fraud.

  5. Fascinating Pcar. But not only for its subject matter.
    You want to see how the BBC burns money, watch this.
    It’s a simple documentary. Mostly interviews with talking heads. It could have been put together with an interviewer, a camera or two, some library footage & a few graphics.
    But not the BBC.
    It looks like a Hollywood action movie.. There’s hardly a shot in it lasts more than 3 seconds. Dolly pans, a shot of a moving car. must have been achieved by fixing a camera to its front, a location shot of the presenter, for some uncountable reason, seated by a bonfire in woodland, at night. Special effects. A thermal camera. Tricky angle shots would have taken an age to set up. The only thing missing’s a stunt man & the guys from the explosive SpecFX.
    You looking at something would take a crew of twenty or more a fortnight in the field plus another couple of weeks in production sewing it all together.
    You wonder where 4 billion goes?

    Thanks, hadn’t considered the BBC production costs.

    “There’s hardly a shot in it lasts more than 3 seconds.” – which is something I hate in so many TV shows. All the jumping around detracts from imparting the message.
