Default When the Media and the Left were not worried about "Foreign Interference"

We hear a lot about "foreign interference" in US elections these days; but there was a time when this was not a concern. Just as recently as Nov. 6th 2016 two days before the election in fact.

Quote:
How a One-Time Political Star in Mexico Ended Up Campaigning for Clinton

Marcelo Ebrard was the mayor of Mexico City from 2006 to 2012, the time when that city gained a reputation as a dynamic, sophisticated world capital, even while the country’s image as a place of dark and ever deepening crisis, corruption, and violence steadily worsened. He implemented numerous urban quality-of-life initiatives—a wildly popular bike-sharing program, an expansion of the rights of sexual minorities, a reduction of crime, and an attack on the air-pollution problem (an initiative in which the Clinton Foundation was involved).

~

Toward the end of his term, Ebrard, who is now in his late fifties, was widely regarded as Mexico’s President-in-waiting for the 2018 elections

~

Last week, though, a spate of news stories appeared in Mexico revealing that Ebrard is working on Latino get-out-the-vote campaigns on behalf of Hillary Clinton. I quickly got in touch with him from Mexico City, and over the last few days we’ve been exchanging e-mails and speaking on the telephone. “It was after hearing Donald Trump speak,” Ebrard said, “that I decided to get much more involved, beyond just giving opinions. The risk represented by el Señor Trump, the things that he says, in particular about Mexico, but in general, too, are like nothing else I’ve encountered.” Ebrard recognized long ago that Mexican-American voter participation lagged badly behind that of other communities in the U.S., and that there was a lot of work that needed to be done to begin to elevate that turnout.

~

Ebrard had previously worked with Voto Latino, and with other voter-registration and participation groups in California, Arizona, Florida, Chicago, and elsewhere, and he is working with those groups again now. He is not, as was incorrectly reported in some Mexican news accounts, directly involved with the Clinton campaign—though the groups he participates in do collaborate with her campaign, especially at the state level. “At first they called and asked, ‘What do you think of this, what’s your opinion of that?’ ” Ebrard said, describing his initial role. Over the months of the U.S. Presidential campaign, though, Ebrard went “from being a consultant to somebody committed to direct political action.”

~

There doesn’t seem to be much national-campaign glamour in what Ebrard does, though he did play a part in convincing the Mexican mariachi star Vicente Fernández to come out of retirement to perform a new corrido endorsing Hillary Clinton. (A new “get out the vote” corrido may be imminent.) He has appeared in a video, distributed over social networks, in which he addresses potential Mexican-American voters in Spanish, encouraging them to vote for Clinton. But a lot of what Ebrard does is quite wonky, studying endless opinion and polling data, working with what he called “very interesting new instruments for analyzing social networks.” His job is to interpret that data, and put forth ideas and identify problems, state by state.
https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-...ng-for-clinton

And the article goes on from there; including statements like "the challenge is to stop Trump".

Isn't it interesting how out in the open and matter of fact they are about this foreign interference. Not a single insinuation of concern with it either; like its completely normal and even seems to suggest it is a just cause.

Strange how fast the media's standards can change in 2 days.

You people aren't very bright, which is why RW outlets target you.

Foreign interference in our elections is a fact and proven repeatedly.
Just follow the money.
Then there are government slaves that troll who consider themselves middle class.
They're just threatened that their jobs are at risk.
Paranoid morons being fed the koolaid from within their own work place from higher ups.
I call them the Comey clowns.

Aint that right tater.

Depends if the election campaign intentionally works with enemies to sway an election. You know, hiring Russians to hack into American databases. Obstructing justice, etc etc. You guys should watch the news sometime.

The left were also concerned about analytic companies compiling data to allegedly help Trump in his campaign.

When Obama did it they cheered and called him "tech savvy".

When Trump did it they called for impeachment.

Hypocrisy hit an all time high in 2016. A hundred years will pass and we'll never see hypocrisy like this.

Yep; they were so proud of themselves that Obama campaign aides jumped into the TED Talk circuit to brag about the data mining.
