Being a member of the mainstream media means you never have to issue a correction, admit you are wrong, or say the words, “I’m sorry.” It also means you can have a salary that runs into the millions of dollars, despite never doing an honest day’s work.
Jake Tapper of CNN – a man whose judgment is so sound that he once dated Monica Lewinsky – can just walk into the office every day and, Eureka! All his scripts have already been helpfully written for him by the Democratic National Committee. The entire work day of a mainstream media diva consists of reading talking points from the DNC. Such as the latest talking point, which is that Attorney General William Barr is part of a “cover-up” to protect President Trump from Russian collusion.
For two weeks now, Americans have been subjected to dueling headlines claiming that the White House is “bracing for the release of the Mueller report,” and that AG Barr’s redactions of information in the Mueller report will amount to a cover-up. CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the youngest member of the Trump-hating media – the Drudge Report – have all been treating us to those headlines.
The DNC talking-point readers have now been twisted into such a mental pretzel that their every utterance is nonsensical. They’re not even trying at this point. The “news” is simply a confusing funhouse mirror by which they’re trying to keep the #Resistance from running to the psych ward.
If the public is ever exposed to the truth that Russian collusion NEVER HAPPENED, the Democrats will lose the 2020 election in a landslide because the #Resistance will be too doped up on anti-psychotic meds to ever make it to the polls.
See if you can follow any of the logic of this mess:
William Barr was part of the Russian collusion cover-up for Trump and Putin all along. Despite not being Trump’s first choice for Attorney General, Barr was the clean-up man, waiting in the wings. All he had to do was wait for AG Jeff Sessions to resign and then make it through a grueling Senate confirmation in time for the completion of the Mueller confirmation. Then, Barr could spring his clever trap by suppressing the info in the Mueller report.
Barr launched his attack on our democracy by claiming that the Mueller report exonerates the Trump campaign of Russian collusion and obstruction of justice. For that to be true, Robert Mueller’s entire team of Hillary-donating, Trump-hating witch hunters and Mueller himself are quietly sitting on the sidelines and allowing Barr to singlehandedly undermine almost two years’ worth of work.
The Mueller team leaked like a sieve from day one, tossing tidbits of biased, one-sided information to reporters to make it look like the Trump campaign possibly colluded with Russia. The Mueller team has dozens of reporters in DC on speed-dial. Knowing how DC works, several members of Mueller’s team of witch hunters are probably sleeping with reporters. But now that William Barr is determined to cover up the truth of Russian collusion, all of Mueller’s people have clammed up.
Remember when those beacons of truth and journalism truthiness at Buzzfeed claimed to have concrete evidence that Trump directed the weaselly lawyer guy to lie to Congress?
Trump was guilty of perjury and therefore, we had to sit through 24 hours of Impeachment Time Baby(!) on all the cable news channels. Mueller swatted Buzzfeed’s lie down like it was a piece of legislation from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Throughout his career, Mueller has lied to smear and convict his targets when he knew he could get away with it. But when he knew he couldn’t prove what Buzzfeed was claiming, and it would make him look bad, he spoke out swiftly.
If William Barr is staging a cover-up and undermining almost two years of Mueller’s work, Mueller would do like his best friend James Comey: Break the law by holding a press conference to try to clear his own name.
To believe anything that the DNC news-readers are telling you right now, you must believe that Mueller found evidence of Russian collusion. Then, you have to believe that Barr is covering that proof up – and that for once in his career, Mueller is going to sit there quietly and take it while someone impugns his work.
Just turn your brain off, the mainstream media will do all of the thinking for you.
