Hillary Clinton diagnosed with pneumonia per BBC News
Anyone who's read Breitbart and some other American political websites over the last month or so would have seen video of Hillary Clinton's coughing fits and weird ticks. The BBC have minimised coverage of these episodes as much as possible so the 9/11 memorial event must have come as a total surprise to the vast majority of the British public.
The BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-us-2016-37332106 glides over the top of the story, faithfully reporting the Hillary Clinton camp's line and reassuring everyone about their candidate's health whilst muddying the waters just a little about Donald Trump's.
This one episode is probably containable but now that the genie has been allowed to see the exit from the bottle, one more episode could be too tricky to hide even for the combined forces of the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat Party supporting US and UK media.
