site bubble created by Hillary’s number one fan Peter Daou. Apparently, what Hillary fans need most is a safe space where they don’t have to worry about outsiders. They need a social media sanctuary. From the site’s 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. Verrit’s 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.
Most Hillary supporters, even at progressive site Vox, will admit she has a worrisome secretive side to her personality. But not Peter Daou. His approach to Hillary could best be described as that of a devoted fanboy. If Hillary was a fictional character, he would be the guy who owned every action figure in mint condition (still in the original package).
