Hey Mainstream Media… got anything to say now?
Russian officials have something to say in response to the Russians interfering in elections story they’ve been flogging lately. And whichever side eventually proves their case, one point they made in the middle of it is gonna leave a mark.
A Russian official on Friday argued that U.S. democracy was undermined by President Obama’s administration and the media, not by Moscow’s alleged hacking campaign.
…”The U.S. democratic process was undermined not by Russia, but by the Obama administration and mass media, which supported [Hillary] Clinton over [President-elect Donald] Trump,” Pushkov tweeted.
“The danger to democracy is within U.S. itself,” he added, arguing that Obama is responsible for Republicans’ growing trust of Putin. —The Hill
Whatever your assessment of Russian involvement in influencing the election they are exactly right. The complaint is that people who should NOT be influencing (‘rigging’) the election have been allowed to do so.
People were paid to incite violence. ‘Bird-dogging’. Media silence. Obama dumping money into Israel to unseat Netanyahu? Media silence. Numerous impeachable offenses by Hillary? Media Silence. DNC officials rig results in Dem Primary to favor Hillary over Bernie? Media silence.
Unfounded accusations of impropriety against Trump (which have since withdrawn their accusations?) … Media OUTRAGE! The media … which was OPENLY partisan for Hillary … was not reporting the news, but SHAPING it… massaging it… using it as a prop to help Hillary, and a club to hurt Trump.
They got caught, they know it, and now they’re trying to pull this ‘fake news’ story.
No ‘fake news’ is more fake than their ‘real’ news.
