Mueller And The Media

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 7, 2019

         HAVE YOU READ THAT THE FINAL REPORT BY SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER REFERRED TO MEDIA STORIES AS SOURCES MORE THAN 100 TIMES? IT REFERENCED THE NEW YORK TIMES MORE THAN 60 TIMES AND THE WASHINGTON POST MORE THAN 40. CNN HAS ABOUT A DOZEN CITATIONS AND NBC NEWS HAS TEN STORY MENTIONS. ALL OF THESE OUTLETS HAVE CARRIED REPORTS, STORIES, COLUMNS AND COMMENTARY OPPOSED TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PROMOTING THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION NARRATIVE.

         ADD TO THIS THE DEMOCRATS WORKING ON THE MUELLER TEAM AND YOU HAVE AN IDEOLOGICAL COLLUSION LIKE NONE OTHER.

         MICHAEL CAPUTO, A FORMER MEDIA ADVISER TO THE PRESIDENT, TOLD THE WASHINGTON TIMES (WHICH BY THE WAY WAS NEVER CITED IN THE MUELLER REPORT): “THE MEDIA STOKED THIS. SO IT MAKES SENSE THEY WOULD HAVE A STEADY DIET OF LIBERAL REPORTING.” 

         THE TIMES AND WASHINGTON POST WON PULITZER PRIZES FOR THEIR SLANTED COVERAGE AND PROMOTION OF FAKE NEWS. CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS WANT MUELLER TO TESTIFY. THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T WANT HIM TO. THE REPORT SHOULD BE THE END, BUT IT WON’T. I’M CAL THOMAS.
