The greatest scandal in American history is going to be exposed now that John Durham’s probe has moved into a Criminal investigation.Most of us have been aware of Spygate for a couple years at least. We don’t know every detail yet,but we have a very good idea of what transpired during the 2016.I think we have MOST of it right but even we may be shocked by what we didn’t know. We follow all sorts of social media sites,we’ve read informative books and we’re not Trump haters [that helps]. I’m not so sure the rank and file Democrats all bought the narrative that Pres Trump was a Russian agent;but I’m also sure some of those people didn’t care if it was true or not as long as it got rid of Pres. Trump.
The people i feel badly for are the average viewers of the major cable news networks who are gaslit on a regular basis.The role of the press is to inform the American people and that is especially important in matters re politics and elections. I remember CNN from my 20’s and 30’s. You’d hear the booming voice of James Earl Jones and the brand that CNN was the most trusted name in news. At that time it I think they could honestly say that. Those days are over.When you see Wolf Blitzer raising a glass of champagne and celebrating a possible Hillary Clinton victory you KNOW it’s over.When all of the media is a hate Trump drum beat working hand in hand with the Democrat party that’s confirmation we’ve got propaganda,not news.
You can’t put ALL the blame on the media. As of today there is the power of social media and nobody is restricted to cable news anymore. There are plenty of outside sources to be informed by. If someone is ignorant of what is going on it could be a willfull ignorance. Those people may prefer having their biases confirmed themselves, hoping Pres Trump will be removed from office one way or the other.In that case cable news is providing a service to them. It’s the rest of the viewers that get shortchanged when they are putting their trust in what they see and hear in the news.
What we are witnessing now is the greatest scandal in American history so cable news has the immense responsibility to get as much information as possible to the American people. It’s not as if nobody knew for the last 3 yrs that something was afoot. You had people like John Solomon,Sara Carter,Dan Bongino,the WP account of the Conservative Tree House,Mark Levin,Sean Hannity ,HA Goodman,Black Conservative Patriot & others(hope I didn’t miss anyone)doing the job the mainstream media wouldn’t do. If you have a site with good information please let me know and I’ll gladly add it to the list.
They could tell that something didn’t pass the smell test with the Russia Collusion narrative. You would think the major cable news networks would have some inkling trouble was afoot and be at least mildly curious. That’s what REAL journalism is about.
The story is going to be blown wide open soon. Still not curious? Think about it: We knew that the NSA database had very unusual activity Admiral John Rogers reported. You had the Trump transitional team when Pres Trump was still Pres elect Trump suddenly move from Trump Tower to a venue in New Jersey. You had Devin Nunes looking into information in a SCIF at the White House. Joseph Misfud vanished into thin air with some people even speculating he might be dead.There were some left leaning publications that probably accidentally stumbled onto strange goings on with the intel community. Little breadcrumbs were scattered in various publications.
The real journalists picked them up. Cable News ignored them.Dan Bongino was able to piece together much of the story and write a whole book called Spygate,followed by Exonerated, the story behind the Mueller probe.Now that the IG report on FISA abuse is going to be released and Durham is doing a CRIMINAL investigation Mr Bongino is considering the possibility he could write a 3rd book.

The worst part of what the Cable News Network did was not shoddy biased reporting-bad enough- but actively playing a role in the dissemination of false information(another word for that is LIE). They pushed the Russia Hoax for nearly 3 yrs-basically Pres Trump whole first term- in the hopes of getting Pres Trump out of office or damaging his presidency at the least.Now they’re trying to get him out with the Ukraine Hoax in the last part of his first term. Pres Trump has spent his whole first term under investigation and still managed to accomplish most of his MAGA agenda.
From the IG report of Michael Horowitz:
Two reporters called an unidentified FBI executive and a special-agent-in-charge a combined 65 times, the report found. Another reporter called an unidentified FBI executive 17 times.
“We identified instances where FBI employees received tickets to sporting events from journalists, went on golfing outings with media representatives, were treated to drinks and meals after work by reporters, and were the guests of journalists at nonpublic social events,” the report found.
