Media that conspired with Hillary camp to cover Trump and push bogus 'election hacked' narrative

Daily Caller:
WikiLeaks’ publication of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta revealed the close ties between prominent journalists and the Clinton campaign. Many of those same journalists will now be covering the Trump White House.

CNBC chief political correspondent and New York Times political writer John Harwood demonstrated clear partisanship in his many email exchanges with Podesta.
...
Last month, the New York Times announced it would be hiring Politico reporter Glenn Thrush to cover the Trump White House. Emails released by WikiLeaks showed Thrush sending stories to Clinton staffers for approval before publication....
...
Other journalists who will cover the Trump White House were named as personal favorites of Clinton campaign staffers.

A July 2015 media plan described New York Times Magazine chief national correspondent Mark Leibovich as “sympathetic.” WikiLeaks emails revealed Leibovich giving Palmieri “veto” power over which anecdotes he would include in his stories.

There is much more.

Fact checker found no evidence that votes were actually hacked, yet the media keeps pushing the narrative that the "election was hacked."  Sharyl Attkisson demolishes this narrative.

Glenn Reynolds has a nice summary of the Democrats' claim:
...
It’s easy to mock the Democrats’ hysteria over all this, which seems mostly like an inability to accept that they lost an election they thought was in the bag. Instead, they blame a password-phishing scam that John Podesta fell for like somebody’s technologically-challenged grandmother. (Another IowaHawk tweet: “Breaking: State Dept expels 20 Nigerian diplomats after John Podesta fails to receive $1 million wire transfer from nephew of General Okezi.”) And, partly to cover for Hillary and to delegitimize Trump, much of the press has talked about “election hacking” in a way that suggests — entirely falsely — that the Russians were changing votes instead of (maybe) being the ones who copied embarrassing emails from John Podesta and gave them to Wikileaks. (I say “maybe” because some people, like Ars Technica’s security editor Dan Goodin, don’t think that the Obama Administration has made the case that the Russians were behind it.)
...
The media and Democrat attempt to blame their loss on the Russians is becoming more laughable everyday.
