Ever since the Mueller report was released and collusion theorist Democrats have been proven certifiably goofy, we haven’t seen the sunrise of Democrat sanity that we thought we would. Rather than apologizing for smearing the President over the last two years or admitting that they were wrong, they have… can you guess? They have doubled down on all of the Russia stuff.
Yeah, we know. It’s exasperating.
According to a timeline from Realclearpolitics.com, media outlets MSNBC and CNN have spent more time on the Russia story on the days after the Mueller report was revealed to be a nothingburger than they did on any day before the release of the report. Now that’s saying something!
For the last two years, they talked about the pee pee gate dossier, Stormy Daniels, and other Trump-Russia related nonsense for an average of 6 hours a day. But in the days after the release of the Mueller report, that number shot up to an average of 11 hours of Trump-Russia conspiracy theories per day.
Far and away the standout winner of the “talk about Trump the most” contest was MSNBC. They talked about Trump-collusion theories and made excuses for two solid years of BS-ing for about 17 total hours.
You’re probably wondering what they are talking about exactly. Well, they’re talking about a lot of things. They talked about how they were considering the idea that Bob Mueller was actually working for Trump the whole time. They talked about how hard Trump must have had to work to hide all the evidence so well for two straight years. They talked about how racist they think Trump and his supporters are- because if they can convince people of that- it doesn’t matter whether or not the MAGA people have committed any real crimes because… they’re just guilty.
But the disingenuous speculation and the spurious accusations didn’t stop there. These greased up pundits spent a huge amount of their time talking about why their mad focus on the Mueller probe was justified.
CNN’s Brian Stelter has been blabbering non stop about the trail of bread crumbs that Trump has left for them to follow. He’s said that the media has nothing to apologize for- that they did nothing wrong.
The New York Times refuses to stop the gravy train either. Just yesterday they published another piece filled with information from anonymous sources. Their latest claim is that some on Mueller’s team think the report damages President Trump more than Barr is letting on. But the article cited no evidence of this or revealed if it was just one guy out of Mueller’s team of more than 40 agents and lawyers who thought this. Basically it was another hit piece with anonymous sources.
But here’s where it really gets funny. Ratings for all of the liberal mainstream news networks have plummeted since Mueller dropped the dud that launched 1,000 excuses. Stelter is claiming that the reason the ratings for his network are so low this week is that it’s a slow news week.
Well, Brian, that doesn’t explain why Fox’s ratings have gone through the roof. That’s because Fox did not lie about the Mueller report. They did not drone on about one story for two years straight. Fox didn’t lie to the American people. If there’s one thing the country has learned from all of this, it’s the fact that CNN and MSNBC are the bought and paid for mouthpieces of the Democrat Party- and the Democrat party is totally out to lunch.
What we don’t understand is, if CNN is suffering from a slow news week, why don’t they just make the news up as they have been doing for the past two years? Just cite a bunch of anonymous sources and tell your tall tales CNN!
Reporter for The Hill, Joe Concha, explained the situation saying, “Yesterday, CNN didn’t even average more than 540,000 viewers as a 40-year-old network with a big brand name and a crazy news cycle. You’re talking about [Jussie] Smollett getting released, [Michael] Avenatti getting arrested, the Mueller report — how anybody isn’t rising in ratings in this particular week when it’s just been nuts … that’s almost impossible to do unless your viewers don’t trust you anymore based on all the speculation you did recklessly and randomly over the past two years.”
So the plan to maintain their dubious reputation and keep their show on the road is to just keep lying. It would be nice to say that this was unexpected, but it wasn’t. The last time the wingnut media was anything close to contrite was in late November of 2016 when the New York Times apologized for being dead wrong about polling numbers prior to the election.
They said that they owed it to their readers and to voters to do better, to dig deeper, and to be more honest. That was the last time a mainstream media outlet outlet told the truth. Since then, it’s been BS all the way…and there’s no sign of them stopping.
