How the media buried two huge FBI stories yesterday
LINK
quote:

For more than year and half, the media have gone all-in on reporting every possible angle of President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia. No story update has been too small, no encounter with a Russian too inconsequential, and no anonymous source too sketchy to generate outsize coverage and histrionic claims from major media.

But as the Russian collusion story disintegrates, another interesting story ascends. Investigations by multiple congressional committees as well as an investigation by the inspector general of the Department of Justice have shown irregularities in the handling of the most politically sensitive probes in recent memory: the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information while secretary of State and the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged nefarious ties with Russia to meddle in a U.S. election.

These investigations have resulted in the firing, demotion, and reassignment of at least six top officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice. And all of those personnel changes were made before even the first official reports and memoranda from these investigations were made public.

They covered 2 scoops but left out yesterday's stories or buried them deep within other news they felt wasn't as damaging.

Further proof that the MSM is an arm of the Democrat party. They don't care about reporting the truth. They care about pushing their left-wing agenda.

Bring on Grassley and Graham.
Hopefully the predictions of the drip-drip slow play are true.

re: How the media buried two huge FBI stories yesterday
The biggest cover was the media saying that the lovers were talking about Russia meddling, when they mentioned keeping the POTUS updated. The media just played along assuming the best outcome, the best intentions, and no real investigation to prove otherwise. The media is basically complicit in corruption, which isn’t a stretch. They just believe anything Obama did had the best intentions, the IRS , Too Fast, too Furios, Benghazi was a spontaneous protest. The media is why we are here....

Grassley and Graham had to fight the FBI tooth and nail to get this memo released with few-enough redactions to serve the public. Grassley accused the bureau of playing a “bureaucratic game of hide the ball.” In short, there were multiple interesting angles worthy of serious — perhaps even breathless — coverage.

Yet Major Outlets Don’t Want to Talk About This
Instead, The New York Times ran a story on page 19 of the newspaper. Its portions about the criminal referral — as opposed to its portions repeating Democratic talking points — could not have been more dryly written or uninteresting. Reporters Maggie Haberman, Sharon LaFraniere, and Michael Shear devoted a total of five sentences in a 22-paragraph story to the Grassley and Graham expose. It ran under the false headline “2 Senators Issue Letter To Support House Memo,” even though the letter was issued in early January, weeks before the House memo was made public. The criminal referral was only this week published with few-enough redactions to make sense of it.

What about at the Washington Post? Their reporters did not write a story about the significantly less redacted letter released Tuesday. A blog post mischaracterized the more redacted version of the letter Monday as a letter written “in an effort to breathe life into the deflating Nunes effort. Unsurprisingly, it’s another big nothing.” It’s not nothing, as coverage of the less redacted letter shows. It confirms the dramatic claims in the House memo, which are anything but deflated. And it was written weeks prior to the House Intel memo. But other than that, great job downplaying.

Certainly Politico covered the dramatically more transparent letter released Tuesday, right? Wrong. I mean, it’s not a scandal if you don’t look at it!

The media needs to be investigated and heads need to roll.

Uranium 1 "Pay to Play" four hour testimony is the lead story on FOX. It is Not mentioned on CNN or Politico. But Holder is getting a lot of play these days.

Do you think the media would cover it if people were cuffed?

At this point honest Bob going to a podium is the only thing they would cover. I don't think they will even cover the OIG DOJ report due out in a few weeks.

What would the MSM do if honest Bob vindicated Trump?

If anything good is to come of this whole mess I hope it will be more and more Americans realizing that mass media is little more than propaganda designed to manipulate us all. This is beyond politics and goes into business, financial markets, and even sports.

Trump has never been more right when he calls the media the enemy of the people. The "free press" isn't even close to free.

MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, CBS, NYT and WaPo...the whole establishment media was in the bag for Hillary Clinton and outwardly despises the Trump Presidency.

I would agree with the bold wholeheartedly. CBS, NBC and ABC, not so much. I think that is more of people getting triggered over little things and lumping them in for any reporting not favorable to the Trump admin.

But Fox News is mainstream too, which was my direct comment.

Correct. Shep Smith is like watching CNN. But Bret Baer reports the actual news something CNN forgot how to do.

He won't. His whole purpose is to not do that.
