If you needed yet another reason to despise the so-called “mainstream media,” this story should qualify.
For more than a year, the insane Left — led by the Democratic Party, which is fundamentally no different than the communist parties of China and the former Soviet Union — have pushed the never-proven, widely debunked narrative that the campaign of President Donald J. Trump “colluded” with the Russians to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton.
The media gleefully picked up this fake allegation and in fact, allowed themselves to be used as patsies, breathlessly publishing no shortage of fake news stories based on “unnamed sources” that were lying all along.
Even today in some media circles you can still hear Alt-Left pundits claim that the collusion ‘is there’ — the evidence just hasn’t been found yet.
The continued lack of evidence month after month, however, has now led the Alt-Left to concoct a new theory: Trump is crazy, say all these psychiatrists (none of whom have ever examined the president and who clearly have political motivations for their claims).
But the same media that is now giving this latest conspiracy failed for an entire year to report the truth about the “Russia dossier” — namely, that it was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and then ‘dressed up’ as legitimate intelligence.
They all knew — and not one of them reported it. (Related: NY Times in full COVER-UP mode to help DEMS save their ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ narrative as House closes in on FBI’s improper use of ‘dossier’.)
Ace investigative journalist and Hoover Institute media fellow Paul Sperry tweeted the truth over the weekend, outing the “mainstream” media as the frauds they are.
“BREAKING NEWS: DC press corps suppressed for full year the fact that Clinton campaign paid for the anti-Trump Russia dossier.
“Journalists knew Clinton behind dossier as early as September 2016 & kept mum, reporting dossier’s allegations as if they were legitimate intelligence!”

And, “BREAKING: ex-Trump campaign adviser says prominent Washington journalists told him DURING CAMPAIGN (early as Sept 2016) they KNEW Hillary Clinton was behind the anti-Trump dossier, and yet they SAT ON that critical information for a FULL YEAR & acted as if dossier was legit intel.”

It wasn’t until October — just about the time Democrats and the mainstream media were figuring out that the “Trump-Russia collusion” lie wasn’t going to produce the desired result (lead to Trump’s impeachment) — that the Washington Post finally published the truth:
Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.
After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Immediately after the Post published its story, other mainstream media journalists piped up and claimed that yes, they knew all about Clinton’s involvement, but for various reasons decided against publishing the facts.
Rather, they let the fake narrative play out so that it would hamper Trump during his entire first year in office. You know, ‘for the good of the country.’
The New York Times was aware of the truth as well. Apparently when the paper’s reporter, Kenneth Vogel, questioned Clinton’s campaign lawyer, Marc Elias, he pushed back “vigorously” and insisted his source was wrong. (Questions : When did that ever stop the Post and the Times from publishing fake news about Trump and his administration? And when did the mainstream media ever bother ask the Trump administration first before publishing?)
These people are helping forces of evil destroy our country by keeping us irreconcilably divided. They are enemies of freedom, not guarantors of it.
