Corrupt Journalists Destroying the American Media

Media Continues Its Slow Suicide

by Julie Kelly  at American Greatness:

After reviewing last week’s news coverage, I would encourage President Trump to come up with a more accurate taunt than “fake news.” Maybe “garbage news.” Or perhaps “bottom-feeding news.” Even try “we-are-a-collection-of-dishonest-miscreants-who-are-unworthy-of-an-ounce-of-the-American-people’s-trust news.”

But “fake news” is tame in light of the media’s misleading, destructive, and willfully ignorant reporting last week that was intended further to inflame a divided body politic.

Some of the lowlights featured MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough, claiming Trump has done more damage to the country than the 9/11 terrorists; the editorial board of a major newspaper blaming Trump for Hurricane Florence; the wholesale acceptance of a highly flawed paper about hurricane deaths used to bash the president; and a despicable crusade not just to quash Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court, but to destroy his reputation and damage his young family.

And it wasn’t just the dependable lunatics on the Left pushing trash commentary. Bret Stephens, the NeverTrump “conservative” columnist for the New York Timescompared Trump to a drug addict. Washington Post “conservative” blogger Jennifer Rubin warned that if Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) voted to confirm Kavanaugh, their names would be, “as was the case with [Nazi-era traitor] Vidkun Quisling—synonymous with ‘sellouts,’ ‘collaborators,’ or, to use a Trumpism, ‘phonies.’”

As the week came to a close, the New York Times was forced to append its misleading article that criticized U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for buying pricey curtains to decorate her official residence. The window coverings, it turns out, actually were purchased by her predecessor in the Obama Administration. But it was too late. Social media had pounded Haley all morning for being extravagant and heartless.

 

This is why Americans, in a recent poll, cited inaccuracy and bias as the key reasons why they no longer trust the media.

But there is a more sinister agenda behind this collective media cacophony: To hide their complicity in the biggest political scandal of all time, which included the weaponization of the nation’s most powerful government agencies to spy on a rival presidential campaign; the illegal leaking of classified information to friendly journalists to defame American citizens associated with the campaign; and the sabotage of an incoming presidency, the media is happy to distract us with manufactured non-scandals that advance the political interests of their friends.

Each week, new details emerge about how the media seeded the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. High-level federal officials acting in bad faith schemed with reporters eager for a scoop to spin nefarious tales about the president and his aides. Some of the resultant articles were cited as evidence to persuade a secret court to allow the U.S. government to spy on private citizens. Former FBI Director James Comey admitted he had a friend leak a copy of his internal memo to the press to help prompt the special counsel probe into Trump-Russia collusion.

The Justice Department’s Inspector General recently exposed the cozy ties between reporters and FBI personnel. Journalists wooed agents with drinks, meals, tickets to sporting events and other perks in clear violation of ethical standards and agency protocol.

The government and the media were not just figuratively “in bed” with each other during 2016 and 2017; it was quite literal. This year, federal investigators uncovered an illicit affair between the married Senate Intelligence Committee’s security chief and a young unmarried reporter; James Wolfe was arrested by the FBI last spring for covering up the three-year relationship. He was passing along nonpublic and classified documents to Ali Watkins, his much younger journo-girlfriend, who then disclosed the information in her reporting on Trump-Russia “collusion.” This helped the 20-something reporter rise from an intern to a New York Times contributor in less than four years.

But the public is only now starting to get a full view into what journalist Lee Smith has called an “extinction-level event” for the press. (Smith compiled a terrific rundown of the Trump-Russia “echo chamber,” which was similar to the strategy employed by the Obama administration to sell the Iran Nuclear deal.) Text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, two high-ranking FBI agents (also in the midst of an illicit affair at the time of these events), continue to expose how they planted damaging stories about Trump associates in the press, even after Trump was sworn in as president.

Strzok—a ubiquitous figure tied to the Clinton email investigation, the Trump-Russian counterintelligence probe, the Mueller team (until he was dismissed from it over the Lisa Page affair), and the Michael Flynn investigation—was fired from the agency last month. He boasted about a “media leak strategy.” The ploy used reporters as conduits to help justify the FBI’s interrogation of Trump officials.

Page and Strzok orchestrated newspaper hit jobs in April 2017 on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page—Strzok even joked with Lisa Page about their shared last name—by illegally divulging details about the FISA warrant on the short-term campaign volunteer. The Washington Post was the first news outlet to report on the FISA surveillance on April 11, 2017. (Comey confirmed in congressional testimony that disclosing FISA information is a crime.) That scoop apparently ruffled some feathers at the New York Times; Strzok told Page a few days later “the Times is angry with us.”

Aren’t you relieved to know that this is what the country’s top law enforcement officials are worried about?

The same outlets who report any shred of nonsense as long as it damages Trump and his allies, of course neglect to cover these unseemly connections between investigators and the media. The Postinconceivably defended the “media leak” strategy as an attempt to combat media leaks, not facilitate them, even though all evidence supports the opposite conclusion. The Post insists that drawing this clear conclusion is succumbing to just another Trump conspiracy theory. A parody-like piece in CNN contended that congressional Republicans were accusing Strzok and Page of misconduct “without evidence” and that it was “an unproven and disputed assertion that the President amplified.”

Other journalists declare Strzok is a victim, targeted by Kremlin-loving Republicans because he once fought a Russian crime ring. The New York Times has not reported on the latest trove of texts at all.

The media’s scorched earth strategy to take down Trump as they cover their own asses is not an accident. They are doing whatever they can to try and stop the inevitable: the self-inflicted extinction of their integrity and credibility. Seventy percent of Americans—including 90 percent of Republicans—have lost faith in the news media over the past decade. More ignoble performances by the press only will deepen Americans’ distrust of this once-respected institution—and prove that the president is right.

  1. …What is this Mueller Game All About?…

    One has to wonder the number of innocent Americans harmed by the DOJ, the FBI and the IRS during the eight years of the Obama presidency. Let us be thankful President Trump is determined to investigate the criminal activities of Obama, his high officials, and Obama’s “deep state” operatives undermining his agenda and the nation. And now the old weasel newspaperman Bob Woodward of the ‘Washwoman’ Post has written a ‘lying-through-his-teeth’ garbage can account of the Trump White House, which reminds me of Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s fabrications and embellishment of what actually took place in Nixon’s office about the Watergate incident; lies they manage to financially exploit. Same as they are doing to Trump, they labeled Nixon paranoid, unfit to govern, and a crook. Today, however, neither of them can hide behind the walls of the trashy Washington Post; social media makes it impossible for them go unchallenged because everyone has a smart phone, tablet, computer and access to the web.

    But make no mistake about it, the bogus ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller is in on the diabolical anti-Trump machinations to cover up the corruption of the Obama administration. Keep in mind that Robert Mueller was FBI director and James Comey was his deputy during the crucial negotiations of the sale of 20% of our uranium deposits to the Russian corporation Rosatom. Concluded the sale of 1/5 of our uranium deposits the Clinton Foundation received a staggering $145 million donation from Russian donors, and Bill Clinton another $500,000.00 for a speech to a group of Russian bankers in Moscow. This was not only influence peddling but also colluding with the Russians. Mr. President please revoke their security clearances.

    Oh, yes! Vladimir and his Kremlin operatives hold a significant $145,000.000.00 “I owe you” from the defeated projected wannabe first “Madame” president of the United States and another IOU on her lascivious husband who was looking forward to be the “first gentleman” of the nation. But Mueller is not investigating any of this. Was he in on the Uranium One deal? And what about Barack Obama’s palm, eh? Was it not greased? $145,000,000.00 goes a long way in the game of political palm greasing; don’t you think? Especially during political campaigns. I tell you the Democratic National Committee is a nest of copperhead rattlers.

    How can we not recall the larcenous Clintons reassuring us they were so broke when they left the White House they had to take some ‘minor’ things that did not belong to them. Really? What about Bill Clinton’s pardon of the tax evader Marc Rich who most likely fronted the money for the purchase of their multi-million dollar Chappaqua estate? Yes, the money was not from the advance on Bubba’s tell-all book. It was a pay-and-go Mr. Rich; your sins are forgiven.

    It has long been established that the Clintons’ wealth came from foreign governments and businesses disguised as donations to the Clinton Foundation…Yet in the case of Russia their pocketing of $145,000,000.00 from the sale of 20% of our critical uranium deposits plus $500,000.00 for a speech in Moscow just cannot go without investigation; it is conduct that shames the nation. The Clintons have sold the safety and security of America in cahoots with the “hope and change” socialist charlatan Barack Obama, who continues to sow anti-American seeds in the minds of our impressionable young people on college campuses.

    Obama to Dmitry Medvedev (Putin’s water boy) at the White House… “I’ll have more flexibility after the elections”…Medvedev: “I’ll tell Vladimir”…And the Russians marched into Ukraine to annex the Crimean Peninsula, thanks to Obama’s cowardice and duplicity. Shame on us for being so foolish!

    Cjack, Sentinel on the Gulf, September 20, 2018 (re-edited)…

    • Dear Cjack….God Bless You…again and again. I wish I could zero a nail in on the Clintons’ and their lefties’ heads as profoundly, accurately, and clearly as you do! If the human male would spend more time reviewing his own God-given life based on seeking Truth, he’d spend more time seeking problem solving best of all matter….and so, never, ever again dance with or to the tunes of the ditsy leftists from Obama to Hillary and all! ghr.
