WikiLeaks Emails: DNC Had Off-Record Meeting With Wall Street Journal, Leaked Doc from Sanders Campaign

The Democratic National Committee held an off-record meeting with the Rupert Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal in April, according to DNC emails released by WikiLeaks today.

A leaked email featured a schedule of numerous meetings with the media that were scheduled to take place during the week, and also included off-record meetings with Buzzfeed and Bloomberg.

The email was sent by Democrat National Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach to DNC staffer Kate Houghton on the 29th April, and the meetings were scheduled to take place in New York City:

Tuesday

6:30am-7:45am (tentative) Network Morning Show

10am (tentative) MSNBC / Meeting with Mika Brzezinski and Phil Griffin

12pm Off-the-Record Lunch Meeting with the Wall Street Journal Editors

Glenn Hall, National Editor; Tim Layer, Deputy National Editor; Chuck Hawkins, Political Editor; and, Sheila Courter, Election Editor

Another email shows Communications Director Luis Miranda leaking a PDF of a letter from the Sanders campaign to a WSJ reporter.

Five days later, Miranda used the same WSJ reporter to quash complaints from the Sanders campaign about the DNC’s platform drafting appointments.

The Wall Street Journal is owned by media magnate Rupert Murdoch, who just negotiated the exit of Fox News CEO and conservative icon Roger Ailes.

It is unknown as to what the meetings were about.
