Here is the proof. The skinny on fake news.
By Saint John Hunt
Basically, I’m typing this for myself. I can’t imagine anyone with half a brain who is ignorant of the collusion between the main stream (fake) news media and their masters. The purpose of said collusion is to discredit the Trump administration by the non-stop reporting of fabricated “news” aimed at creating doubt in the public’s mind, with regard to their president.
The masters I speak of are in our own government, as well as foreign governments such as Bahrain. Back in 2013, CNN reporter Amber Lyon became a whistle blower against CNN, revealing that she got into journalism to expose wrong doing and found herself more and more under the will of CNN big dogs. They wanted her to bend and even outright fabricate the news.
She was not willing to keep quiet about that any longer.
Being an Emmy award winning CNN journalist, she learned first hand that our own government routinely pays CNN to selectively report on certain events and even make up fake news stories. Ms. Lyon said she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama (Hillary) administration, and construct stories in specific manners while working for the supposedly middle of the road news network.
So when Trump calls CNN a “fake news” station, he knows what he’s talking about.
My point is that for almost one year, CNN has spent a majority of their air time on one thing; spreading fake news about Trump “colluding” with the Russians. Not only that, they have reported on charging him with obstruction of justice, of being a racist, of being a woman hater, and countless other lies.
Here is the proof. The skinny on fake news.
Harvard released a study last week that analyzed The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and the main newscasts of CBS,CNN,FOX, and NBC during the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency. The Harvard team found that CBS coverage was 91 percent negative and 9 percent positive. New York Times was 87% negative and 17% positive. Wall Street Journal was 70% neg and 30% pos.
Get this, FOX coverage was 52% neg and 48% pos. (fair and balanced more than anyone else, but still tilted against Trump). And CNN? The Harvard researchers found CNN’s Trump coverage was 93% negative, and 7% positive.
“CNN’s coverage during his first 100 days set a new standard for negativity,” wrote the authors of the Harvard study.
In a 20 hour period there were 13 hours and 27 minutes of “news” coverage, and of that an incredible 92% was devoted to bashing the Trump presidency, with a little more than 3 minutes per hour devoted to all other news. There were 123 guest appearances in one day, with 96 of them being anti Trump and only 7 guests being pro Trump.
CNN’s own on air news analysts did even worse with 69 appearances by anti Trump analysts and only 2 pro Trump analysts.
Now let’s get to the Trump news. Former head of Dept. of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson stated under oath that he found no evidence that the Russians were successful at changing voter tallies or voter totals. Johnson also stated under oath that he never saw any evidence that Trump or any member of Trump’s campaign colluded, conspired or coordinated with the Russians or anyone else to infiltrate or impact voter infrastructure.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stated that there was no evidence of political collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
We saw former FBI director James Comey state under oath that he never saw any evidence of Trump collusion with the Russians. He confirmed that at no time was Trump under investigation and he stated that Trump did not request or order him to drop the Russian investigation. He did however reveal that Trump said “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
Comey wrote these and other points in a series of memos shortly after his meeting with the President. Admitting that “I hope you can let this go” is not a direct request, he still felt that Trump was subtly asking him to influence the investigation.
President Trump disputes Comey’s account of their conversation.
What is troubling is the fact that sometime after their meeting, Comey leaked the contents of the memo to a friend at Columbia University with instructions he should in turn leak it to the New York Times. This is bizarre behavior for the head of FBI. There comes into question the legality of what Comey did, if not the intent of his actions and the honesty of his testimony.
He’s a slippery fellow.
His actions were to undermine Trump in a stalemate of unprovable accusations. With no evidence as to who said what, it comes down to whom do you believe? The damage to Trump has been calculated and ongoing.
With so much media hype about Trump and the Russians, with CNN raging non-stop fake news smearing the President some folks might tend to believe James Comey.
This brings us to the fact that (inquisitor) Robert Mueller is compelled to resign his position as special counsel due to conflict of interest.
The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has a “conflict of interest.” Even the appearance of a conflict is not allowed.
The same Code of Federal Regulations defines what constitutes a conflict. That is, “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution” (28 CFR 45.2).
Comey is that person. He was substantially involved in the conversation with President Trump, who may be the subject of an obstruction investigation. In fact, the former Director is the only other person involved. There were no witnesses beyond himself.
A conflict of interest is a situation in which an individual has competing interests or loyalties. Here, it sets up a clash between the special counsel’s self-interest or bias and his professional or public interest in discharging his responsibilities in a fair, objective and impartial manner.
His close association with the star witness raises the likelihood of prejudice or favoritism, which will stop the fair administration of justice.
Ah well, these are my notes because in 5 years I won’t believe that such a blatant witch hunt could be possible, hundreds of years after the last fire went out in Salem.
It’s a witch-hunt. The mainstream media is leading the inquisition and Trump loyalists must stand up and speak out for our President.
