Opinion: DNC Leaks

The #DNCleaks have uncovered many controversial happenings at Hilary HQ, not least feeble ethics found within political journalism.

E-mails between members of the Democratic Committee show members of staff and media conspiring to present opponents Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in a negative light.

Despite public's desensitisation to the trend of US political candidates focusing their energies on dimming the reputation of the opponent rather than illuminating their own, it is the low level underhandedness revealed in these casual and candid emails that give us something to think about in terms of the respectability of our future world leaders and their teams, that make it to these top political spheres.
