Recently Hillary Clinton endorsed a new “media platform” from Peter Daou, Cenk Uygur gives you more information.
“Last night, Hillary Clinton endorsed a new media platform called Verrit, something a lot of people hadn’t really heard of until she did so.
First off, the 65.8 million is a reference to how many votes Clinton received in the 2016 election.
The Verrit Twitter account describes the site as “media for the 65.8 million” as well.
Verrit was set up by Peter and Leela Daou. Peter Daou is a former Clinton adviser who has been incredibly vocal on Twitter since the election. After Clinton’s endorsement, Daou explained what Verrit is and who its audience is, saying that “Hillary Clinton’s voters… are unrepresented in the media”*
