Breitbart News’ John Nolte has done it again! This time he has assembled a listicle of the 51 worst fake news stories about Russia that the media spent two years pushing on its gullible viewers.
Now that the Mueller report has been released and we know for a fact that nearly every word uttered about the Russia collusion hoax by the liberal media has been a flat-out lie, there is no end to fake news stories issued by the media.
But to see the sheer number of them like this is stunning.
“Since the release of the Mueller Report last week, which — despite two years, $30 million, and a team of rabidly partisan left-wing investigators — found exactly zero crimes of Russia collusion or obstruction associated with President Trump and his campaign, one of the most bizarre results has been watching the media pat themselves on the back for the stories they believe they got correct,” Nolte wrote in his April 22 piece.
Before he got to his list, Nolte also made a few excellent points.
The list below of 51 might sound like a lot, but it is a drop in the ocean when you recall the thousands and thousands of hours CNN, MSNBC, Meet the Press, This Week, PBS NewsHour, State of the Union, Good Morning America, Reliable Sources, and the Today Show devoted to anchors and pundits pushing the hoax that Trump colluded with Russia.
Not to mention, millions and millions of establishment media tweets and Facebook posts.
Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Shepard Smith, Andrew Napolitano, Joe Scarborough, Chris Hayes, Chuck Todd, Joy Reid, Chris Matthews, Jake Tapper, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter, Erin Burnett, et al., are alone responsible for thousands and thousands and thousands of hours of lies and conspiracy-mongering.
This list of 51 doesn’t count the half-million — half-MILLION — Russia collusion stories published over the past two years, almost all of which were premised on the idea that Trump did, indeed, collude with a foreign power to steal the 2016 presidential election.
Half a million! Lord. That is incredible.
I won’t list every single one of the 51 instances. For that you need to go check out Nolte’s piece.
But here are the first ten:
New York magazine and McClatchy: Michael Cohen went to Prague.
BuzzFeed: Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie, and Mueller has emails proving it.
The New York Times: Paul Manafort passed polling information to the Kremlin.
Axios: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein forced out.
NBC News: Federal investigators wiretapped Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, have recordings of Trump.
Associated Press: Phony Russia dossier was initially funded by Republican group.
Talking Points Memo: Russian social media company provided documents to Senate about communications with Trump official.
CNN: Donald Trump Jr. conspired with WikiLeaks.
Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal: Robert Mueller subpoenaed Trump’s Deutsche Bank records.
Nolte has many more. And investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has an even bigger list of 75 lies the media fed the country for two years.
