ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump went after "the media" during his campaign speech in Panama City, Florida on Tuesday, accusing news outlets of being "cogs in a corporate, political machine." Trump said the election is rigged by Democrat Hillary Clinton. "The New York Times even gave Clinton veto power over her quotes in a major story," Trump said, in reference to hacked emails published by WikiLeaks. "The e-mails also show that Hillary was given the CNN town hall questions before her big debate against Bernie Sanders, is that possible?" he added. The U.S. government last week formally accused Russia of hacking Democratic Party organizations in an effort to influence the presidential election, a charge Russia has denied. As a result, Clinton campaign officials and supporters have warned that such email releases could include fraudulent or misleading documents among genuine emails. Donald Trump has fallen further behind Hillary Clinton and now trails her by 8 points among likely voters, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.
