The “reporting” on the Republican FISA memo is a fine example of how the media is basically just an arm of the Democrat Party. First the media “reported” that the memo was a threat to U.S. national security, then, after it was released, it was suddenly labeled a meaningless “nothing burger.”
The failed reporting perpetrated on the nation by the liberal media did nothing to inform America on what was in the memo and what it really means. All the media did was regurgitate Democrat talking points aimed at protecting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and meant to damage President Donald Trump.
But, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee put it best in his analysis on the media’s failure.
Huckabee took to his Facebook page to nail down just what all this means.
“I lived through Pentagon Papers and Watergate, Iran Contra and Whitewater and more but 1st time in my life seeing Press trying to keep lid on govt actions rather than fully expose,” Huckabee wrote in his Monday, February 5 post.
“They hate Donald Trump THAT much. More than they love truth. Sad. Journalism is dead,” he added.
Huckabee’s post was a timely one, considering it came on a day where the Senate Judiciary Committee released a document stating that members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle and the Obama State Department fed information about Trump to Steele during the investigation.
According to the Washington Examiner, the controversy involves an additional memo written by Steele for the dossier that was not included in what was released to the public by BuzzFeed in January 2017.
“Steele wrote the additional memo based on anti-Trump information that originated with a foreign source,” the Examiner wrote.
The memo was part of a criminal referral from Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asking the Justice Department to investigate Steele.
“In a convoluted scheme outlined in the referral, the foreign source gave the information to an unnamed associate of Hillary and Bill Clinton, who then gave the information to an unnamed official in the Obama State Department, who then gave the information to Steele. Steele wrote a report based on the information, but the redacted version of the referral does not say what Steele did with the report after that.”
The main lesson in all this? Don’t believe a word you hear from the media.
