WTF MSM!? ‘Collusion’ drove a year of #FakeNews

Russia, Russia, Russia …

A dominant story … The folks at Echelon Insights put together a great graphical representation of what the top news stories were this year, based on the stories’ share of the social media conversation. How much of that conversation was about the “Russian collusion” story over the year, week-by-week? Unsurprisingly it was the most talked about news story, because it was pushed over and over again.

Preparing the base … NBC News seems to be prepping liberals for the very real possibility that nothing will come of the investigation, without admitting that there’s nothing there. Our friends at NewsBusters highlighted a recent NBC News column that states that Trump will never be charged with collusion, because it “is only a federal crime in the area of antitrust law.” This is the point that LevinTV host Mark Levin, Professor Alan Dershowitz, and others have been making all year. The prosecution of Trump is a high bar that will be tough to overcome, and there is no evidence that special counsel Mueller is making any progress toward clearing it.

Trump has a point? … Yesterday morning, CNN legal analyst Paul Callan dropped a bombshell — well, to CNN viewers anyway — on the air. Callan said, “Originally, I was angered at the president's attacks on the FBI. I thought they were unjustified, but when I started to delve into the facts, boy, there's some really disturbing stuff here.” You don’t say, Paul? For the past two months, CNN media critic/cheerleader Brian Stelter has been telling CNN viewers that Trump and Fox News’ attacks on the FBI and DOJ are unhinged and a threat to the rule of law. Is the network changing course? Doubtful, but we’ll be watching to see if it does.
