WTF MSM!? Did CNN and NBC reward intelligence leakers with TV contracts?

Ya don’t say …

Collusion … In a recent newsletter I wrote about how the “Comey Memos” outlined the collusion between Comey, Clapper, and CNN. On Tuesday, Tablet magazine’s Lee Smith took a deep dive into the subject. Smith makes a strong case that not only did CNN collude with Comey and Clapper to create news events that CNN then reported on, but it looks like Clapper was rewarded financially with a contributor contract with the network.

It wasn’t just CNN. Smith also goes into how NBC may have rewarded Clapper’s and Comey’s intelligence colleague and former CIA chief John Brennan with a contract after he leaked to the network. These are the sorts of things you won’t see CNN’s media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter report on his – ahem – totally “unbiased” media watchdog show, “’Reliable’ Sources.”  Because it breaks his narrative.

Bravo … Yesterday’s newsletter featured a discussion about disclosure and Vox. In reporting on the T-Mobile-Sprint merger, Vox – as well as NBC News – did not disclose that one of Vox Media’s largest investors is Comcast/NBC Universal, which owns a mobile telephone company.

Well, someone employed at Vox Media takes journalistic ethics seriously. The Verge’s Jacob Kastrenakes disclosed the relationship in a discussion about Xfinity Mobile. Kastrenakes wrote, “Disclosure: Comcast is an investor in Vox Media, The Verge’s parent company.” I suggested that Matt Yglesias should maybe contact Kastrenakes for a refresher in disclosure on Twitter this morning.
