For over two years, the sewagestream media has spent the vast majority of coverage on Donald Trump, trashing him and accusing him of being guilty of collusion with Russia to win the 2016 election.
During this time, a number of sewagestream media networks have been caught (some repeatedly caught) spreading false news stories about Trump.
Like congressional Democrats and RINOs, they already convicted Trump and sentenced him to political death.
Now that Trump has been found innocent of any collusion, instead of apologizing for their intentional character assassination of Trump, they remain defiantly proud of how they handled their coverage of what has come to be known by some as Russiagate.
Washington Examiner – Media pat themselves on the back following implosion of the collusion news cycle – If you are hoping for an industrywide reckoning in the press following the implosion of the Russian collusion news cycle, you’re going to be sorely disappointed.
Media executives are not just unashamed of how their employees have covered this story for the last two years, they are proud of them.
CNN President Jeff Zucker, for example, has defended his network’s disastrously flawed coverage of the allegations that President Trump conspired with the Russian government to steal the 2016 presidential election, by claiming his reporters are not investigators. This is not a paraphrase.
“We are not investigators,” Zucker said. “We are journalists, and our role is to report the facts as we know them, which is exactly what we did.” …
Zucker is right and wrong.
They are definitely not investigators.
However, if you look at the basic rules of journalism, they really aren’t journalists either.
For one thing, a good journalist is also a good investigator, which Zucker admits they are not.
Good journalists also report the truth, regardless of whether they agree or disagree, something that CNN and others have failed to do for well over a decade.
