Sale Of Blue Nation Review Gives Hillary Clinton Camp Its Very Own Media Outlet

WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton ally David Brock is acquiring a media outlet, sources involved in the negotiation and sale of the site tell The Huffington Post.

True Blue Media, a newly formed company incorporated by Brock, has acquired progressive news website Blue Nation Review. BNR’s previous owner, MOKO Social Media Limited, will retain a 20 percent stake in the new entity while Brock will hold the remaining 80 percent equity balance. The sale was finalized Monday night.

Peter Daou, digital media strategist for Clinton’s 2008 campaign, will serve as the new CEO of True Blue Media.

BNR is best known for exposing the lavish spending habits of former Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.), ultimately leading to his resignation. The outlet is run by Jimmy Williams, a longtime regular on MSNBC and a veteran political operative, who will remain at BNR.

Start looking at the source for Clinton supporters' wild news articles.

I suspected one of the clintonites here was a Correct the Record troll and their link went right to BlueNationReview.

6. Apparently he was a troll.

 

I suspect there are a lot of them.

This:

Is probably ever worse than it looks for true Clinton support.

8. Pete is no troll and you know it, MisterP. Fer chrissakes.

Even when I was at my angriest with him I'd never consider him a troll. He is upfront and NOT deceitful.

3. Firstly, that was back in November, so most of us know that

There is nothing wrong with having an online site that is biased. As long as you know it is.
I happen to like the site. Peter is a former DUer ( PeteNYC). He's a good Democrat and even though pro Hillary, I doubt you will find falsehoods in anything he writes.
