How The Media Buried Two
Huge FBI Stories Yesterday

The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2018 2:21:07 PM

For more than a year and a half, the media have gone all-in on reporting every possible angle of President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia. No story update has been too small, no encounter with a Russian too inconsequential, and no anonymous source too sketchy to generate outsize coverage and histrionic claims from major media. But as the Russian collusion story disintegrates, another interesting story ascends. Investigations by multiple congressional committees as well as an investigation by the inspector general of the Department of Justice have shown irregularities in the handling of the most politically sensitive probes in recent memory:

Comments:
I wish all the reporters were like Mollie Hemingway. I would quibble with her in describing the media as ´suddenly incurious.´ They have always been incurious when it relates to crimes and misdeeds from Democrats. I am truly concerned about the media in this country and how we remedy their outright refusal to report news and facts. They weren´t given such extraordinary privileges under our Constitution only to have them abuse and misuse them. I repeat myself when I say I wish there was a way to punish them because they really deserve it.

Mollie is the only person worthwhile to listen to on any of the Fox News panel shows.

Mollie was on Special Report last week with AB Stoddard. When Mollie was done with AB AB´s head almost exploded. I used twitter to congratulate Mollie on her prowess.

#1, I would add Byron York to that short list.

Mrs. Hemingway is a real journalist, a treasure in an industry filled with communist Ted Baxters.

If you read MSM ´stories´ you deserve to remain uninformed, because you will be getting either FAKE news or not getting REAl news, which they often omit or relegate to small print on the back pages. There are many sites where valid news is available.

The thing that puzzles me, even on media that is friendly to the right, is WHY are they defending government?

If government does good things, report the facts and let the audience decide. If the government does bad things, make the factual case for it being bad and, again, let the audience decide.

Government should speak for itself and media should allow their statements to be passed to the people. This person says this. If these government people are competent they should be able to make their point without the media "explaining" things or speculating facts that would support the media´s desired outcome, i.e. opinion.


Of course the low lifes we have in government often DELIBERATELY don´t state a clear case. They expect the media to fill in the blanks and then the government official has deniability. "I" never said that. What is unsaid is that the media speculation is exactly what the politician wanted the public to believe, even though it´s not the truth. What´s worse is that most people in media would have to be morons to believe the politician. They go along with the politicians they like and skewer those they don´t.

Most media, aligned with the Left, have long covered for dems. Unfortunately, more Conservative media, perhaps seeking a level playing field, is doing the same for the right. It´s a bad practice.

As far as I can tell from reading the piece, the two huge stories are

1. The FBI´s close ties with the Hillary campaign in developing the Trump surveillance program.
2. Obama´s involvement in the FBI´s Trump surveillance program.

Or did I miss something?

‘Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.” It was a little after midnight on May 4, 2016. FBI lawyer Lisa Page was texting her paramour, FBI counterespionage agent Peter Strzok, about the most stunning development to date in the 2016 campaign: Donald Trump was now the inevitable Republican nominee. He would square off against Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ certain standard-bearer. The race was set . . . between two major-party candidates who were both under investigation by the FBI. In stunned response, Strzok wrote what may be the only words we need to know,

Mainstream Media’s Credibility

When English statesman Edmund Burke referred to the journalists of his time as the “fourth estate,” it was a term of esteem. To be a member of the press was a high calling, a great responsibility, and an honor. (Snip) No longer are they the fourth estate; instead, they’ve become a fifth column. The mainstream media has completely betrayed the trust of the American people. ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN aren’t even feigning objectivity anymore. Instead of being the guardians of a free nation, they’ve become nothing but agenda-driven shills for leftist ideology. They are propogandists worthy of comparison to

Despite the institution of a new policy requiring players to stand during the national anthem and imposing fines for any that don´t, no New York Jets players will be paying any fines. Team chairman Christopher Johnson, who is acting as the owner while his brother, Woody Johnson, serves as the United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, told Newsday on Wednesday that the team will cover any fines incurred by Jets players for violating the anthem policy. "I do not like imposing any club-specific rules," Johnson said, per Newsday. "If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be

Former President Barack Obama’s education secretary and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel were planning how to turn a national tragedy into a legislative victory for the administration two days after the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. That’s according to emails obtained under a Freedom of Information request from a reporter from the Baltimore Post. On the morning of Dec. 14, 2012, a 20-year-old man killed his mother in their home then traveled to Sandy Hook Elementary School — a semi-automatic rifle and two pistols in tow. He broke into the school and killed another 26 people — 20 of them

The Trump Rationale

Why exactly did nearly half the country vote for Donald Trump? Why also did the arguments of Never Trump Republicans and conservatives have marginal effect on voters? Despite vehement denunciations of the Trump candidacy from many pundits on the right and in the media, Trump nonetheless got about the same percentage of Republican voters (88–90 percent) as did McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012, who both were handily defeated in the Electoral College. Here are some of reasons voters knew what they were getting with Trump and yet nevertheless assumed he was preferable to a Clinton presidency. 1) Was Trump

NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said she thinks American diplomacy is better on TV than in real life. On Monday, Mitchell interviewed actor Erich Bergen, co-star of the CBS “Madam Secretary” in which Tea Leoni plays CIA-analyst-turned-Secretary-of-State Elizabeth McCord. Mitchell praised the show for its portrayal of what she thinks diplomacy should look like rather what it has been since President Trump took office. “As we’ve had a downturn at the State Department, at least it’s one place we can watch diplomacy in action, at least once a week on Sunday night,” Mitchell said.

ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter is reporting that the NFL will allow players to remain in the locker room during the anthem.

Though the new policy is not expected to become official until later Wednesday afternoon, Schefter tweeted the reported details: (Snip) On Tuesday, it was reported that the league would assess 15-yard penalties to teams whose players protested on the sidelines.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump are increasingly skeptical of letting him give an interview with prosecutors running the Russia investigation, but are thinking through how to prepare him for the possible high-stakes session nonetheless. Rudy Giuliani, one of the president’s outside lawyers, said in an interview Tuesday that he is currently opposed to letting Mr. Trump field questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Noting the perils of talking to prosecutors, Mr. Giuliani said that were the president to testify he could “talk himself into becoming a target.” Other people close to Mr. Trump’s legal team have voiced a similar view, worried that

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
