Did Russia really do anything the media wasn’t already doing?
I mean the media took every opportunity to prop Hillary up during the campaign and disparage Trump.

Didn’t the DNC also coordinate protesters at Trump rally’s that actually led to physical confrontations?

Doesn’t George Soros fund Antifa and their protest? How he hasn’t been indicted yet is amazing to me.

Didn’t the Obama administration spend $350,000 to fund Bibi’s opponent in the Israel election?

How are any of these things different than what Russia did?

Absolutely on point. Great question. Solid post. MSM has been doing this for a long time. Include Hollywood in their number as well.

Well, if the Russians want to participate they need to file for press credentials like everybody else.

Even if you're right, there's a huge difference between a hostile foreign government and American media trying to influence our elections.

They tried (They have been trying since 1945, btw, but prog filth knows NOTHING about history).

The fact is, the Russians have failed miserably in the past couple of years to even begin to come close to the lies, filth and attempts to destroy the United States and all that is good about it as the MSM "Amerikan" media has done. Filthy traitor scum working for the American media is WAY worse than anything the stupid Russians could attempt to do.

I've said this all along. The most apparent and egregious collusion in the 2016 election was between the MSM and the DNC. Hands down.

Mueller's self fulfilling prophecy actually came to pass. Indict someone, anyone on charges that sound loosely related to the original scope, but really have nothing to do with the original target when it comes down to it. He did exactly what all special prosecutors do.

re: Did Russia really do anything the media wasn’t already doing?
Yes, Russia is a foreign hostile state that attacked the U.S.

Any attempt to equate that action to what you perceive as media bias doesn’t make it out of the starting gate. This board is beyond hope.

Propaganda is propaganda. Foreign or domestic. Our alleged free press should not be trying to rig elections by giving one candidate overwhelming support, while constantly shitting on the other candidate.


Msm took a hostile stance on all trump supporters... as they tore us down, in order to prop up hillary and hillary supporters.

Do you know how many foreign elections the CIA has actively participated in the best interest of the United States? Many, going back decades.

I don’t like the fact they are trying to bring doubt to the American voters about the outcome of the elections, but to act like we haven’t been doing this since WW2 in our own best interest is being naive.

The media is supposed to be the 4th Estate. It is supposed to be adversarial to all in government in order to give people the truth. Are you really that obtuse to think that the American media colluding with a political campaign to elect a certain candidate isn't more dangerous than social media bots funded by a foreign government?

What the Russians actually did pales in comparison to what the media, Fusion GPS, CTR, Soros, and others did in an attempt to meddle with the election.

The only leg they have to stand on is that Russia is a foreign country.

Then remind them that the dossier was put together by a foreign agent who relied on Russian intelligence.

Or that we interfere with foreign elections all the time.


They really have no logical reason to be outraged over this.

Unfortunately they only seek the truth when a republican is in the White House or when a republican is accused of anything negative.

The only thing different is that they hid the fact they were Russians.

I'd side with Russia before siding with MSM or the DNC.
Russia is more honest than either of the 2.
