Hillary Clinton Pimping "Verrit," A Progressive Rebuttal to the 99.9% Progressive Media

A progressive media bubble for Hillary voters, you say?

Why hasn't someone thought of this before?

What is Verrit you ask? Itís a new social media site bubble created by Hillaryís number one fan Peter Daou. Apparently, what Hillary fans need most is a safe space where they donít have to worry about outsiders. They need a social media sanctuary. From the siteís announcement page:
With the essence of American democracy at stake, 65.8 million people saw through the lies and smears and made a wise, patriotic choice. But they continue to be marginalized and harassed. Verritís purpose is to become their trusted source of political information and analysis; to provide them (and anyone like-minded) sanctuary in a chaotic media environment; to center their shared principles; and to do so with an unwavering commitment to truth and facts.

John Sexton notes that the site is promoted by one of Hilary's more unhinged fanbois, Peter Daou.

The Federalist's Mary Katharine Ham lists six innovations Verrit will bring to today's repressive conservative media environment.

Here are two:

Hair-Trigger Breaking News Push Notifications

Verrit is necessary because there just aren't enough breaking news alerts served to the American public on a daily basis. Sure, you may know that Kate Middleton announced today she is having her third baby, but did you have that information pushed to you on your mobile device 37 times this morning before you'd had coffee? Thatís the kind of groundbreaking innovation weíre here to bring you. America deserves it. There is an inspiringly diverse coalition of push notifications unfairly silenced by the lack of representation of breaking news push alerts in media today.

People Who Live in NYC and D.C. and are Uncomfortable With Trump Policies

We knew finding the right talent for Verrit wouldn't be simple. We had to search far and wide in all two of America's cities-- including far-flung boroughs, but not so far we got to Staten Island! Come on, it's a ferry ride.-- to find people brave enough to talk publicly from a liberal perspective about how misogyny, sexism, and racism plague our politics and impact our elections. No one said it would be easy, but we are doing what has to be done, and with your support, we believe we can bring these hidden viewpoints to the fore.

Now if Verrit can only provide bonus opportunities for Hillary Clinton to grift money, it really will be filling some major holes.
