I know what you are saying… the media got EVERYTHING wrong about Trump supposedly “colluding” with Russia to change the outcome of the 2016 election. But there are ten key things they lied about here.
New York Post reporter Sohrab Ahmari recently sat down and assembled ten of the worst fake news moments of the media’s fake news coverage of the now disproven Russia “collusion” story.
All these fake news claims were killed by the Mueller repot, by the way.
I will briefly recap them here:
#10: CNN muffed story that Comey told the president he wasn’t under investigation.
#9: New York Times idiot Charles Blow claimed “it was clear” that Trump and his inner circle was seeking help from the Russians.
#8: Washington Post reported that Trump’s campaign “met with the Russians” multiple times. Turns out they didn’t meet at all.
#7: For MSNBC, John Brennan repeatedly told audiences Trump would be indicted by Mueller.
#6: The Guardian manufactured “secret” meetings between Trump, the Russians, and Julian Assange.
#5: Washington Post claimed that the Republican Party agreed to cease arms to Ukraine because Trump and Putin asked them to. But it never happened.
#4: The Atlantic’s Julia Ioffe claimed that when Jeff Sessions was a U.S. Senator and met with a Russian ambassador, he did it for the Trump campaign. This was also false.
#3: The fake Trump dossier…. all of it. The whole thing was a fraud. Buzzfeed and Mother Jones Magazine particularly hard hit with that one!
#2: McClatchy lied that they had evidence that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen visited Prague to meet with Russians on behalf of Trump.
#1: Buzzfeed lie-filled story that Trump told Cohen to lie to Congress.
Be sure and go to the New York Post for the fleshed-out report.
