WikiLeaks releases more e-mails showing Clinton’s ties to media

The WikiLeaks website on Wednesday released its latest trove of e-mails from the account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign chairman. The 1,193 messages reportedly show close ties between the Clinton campaign and leading US media organizations that gave favorable coverage of Clinton and unfavorable coverage of Bernie Sanders, Clinton's main Democratic rival in the race. Podesta, formerly chief of staff for ex-President Bill Clinton, accused WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of helping the Republican Party and Moscow by breaking into his e-mail account. He claimed it "was their countermove to try to take the public's attention off the despicable things that Donald Trump said on that video," referring to lewd remarks about women that Trump made in 2005.
