Why can't journalists get the facts straight?

The narrative I've been hearing all day from journalists is

"She made this mess. Why didn't she just release all the emails right away?"

Joe Biden was asked this question today, and he didn't even push back.

My understanding is that Hillary did not have the authority to release the emails. Am I mistaken?

2. Probably should have.

 

It's a rolling one bad decision after another.

And her staff can't get things straight. They sent her out there yesterday thinking that the Dems in Congress weren't copied when they in fact were. More foot shooting. She needs to do some house cleaning. She gets awful advice sometimes.

3. Are those even her emails?

There has been conflicting information on what the emails actually are.

4. Here's the facts

http://crooksandliars.com/2016/10/disagreeing-newsweeks-eichenwald-comeys

Media cable outlets are depending on the stupidity of the American people.

The device where the emails were found was already in their possession.

Content under an email account doesn't change when it is accessed from different devices

Read the section where they describe what Huma told agents and WHEN.

BTW Lara Trump, Trump's daughter-in-law married to Eric Trump knew about Weiner laptop story supposedly before Comey knew. According to his written statement, he said he found out on Thursday October 27, 2016. But Lara said on a TV show that the TRump's had a surprise for HRC, which means she knew about this a t least a week before Comey claims he found out.

Comey violated the HATCH ACT https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatch_Act_of_1939

9. Mostly they are not actually journalists

Real journalists report; who, what, why and where. Just the facts ma'am, just the facts.

Who you are calling journalists are actually just opinionated egotists who are only interested in stirring up a shit storm. When people finally tune them all out things may get better.
