Nets Give Less than a Minute to House
Committee’s ‘No Collusion’ Findings

Newsbusters, by Nicholas Fondacaro

On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, much to the chagrin of the liberal media. The committee confirmed that the Russians were indeed trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they weren’t out to help candidate Donald Trump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But during their evening broadcasts, ABC and CBS downplayed the findings while NBC ignored them. CBS Evening News only gave 31 seconds to the House committee’s findings. “Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said there was no collusion

This Russia Russia matter kept their collective panties in a wad for well over a year. Now, all the MSM can do is sigh and move on to the next scandal.

Years ago, journalism required reporting who,what,when,where,why,how. Like a well-rehearsed script, David Muir asks Jonathan Karl about the House Intelligence Committee finding no evidence of collusion and Karl’s response is a typical example of today’s “opinioniosts” who insert opinion into an alleged news report thereby shaping the news to fit their agenda and unwitting low information voters absorb it like sponges.

Example of today’s faux news (contaminated with opinion): FTA: “Karl appeared to be almost irritated by the committee’s findings: “THESE ARE THE REPUBLICANS THAT CONTROL THAT COMMITTEE.” “THE FINDING IS HARDLY SURPRISING,” he scoffed.

“AND GIVEN HOW PARTISAN THAT COMMITTEE IS, IT´S NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY IMPACT ON THE OVERALL DEBATE OVER RUSSIA.” He wrapped up the segment by holding out hope that the Senate and special counsel investigations would find something incriminating against the President.”

Example of real news report: “The House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The committee confirmed that the Russians were trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they were not out to help candidate DonaldTrump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

I was a journalism major for two years in the early 70s. It was who, what, where and when. There was no why or how because that can be subject to opinion. Who, what, where, when - just the facts mam.

Changed my major to business and am happy I did!!

There won´t be a single dim in the country that will believe the committee´s memo. They will all will be saying something like "all of the republicans will do anything to support Trump". Or something to attempt to say the the republicans just won´t believe the "facts" that have been turned up. Most of them will go to their graves believing that Trump had Russia helping him to win the election. No matter who says no and not facts to show it. It´s just something that they wan´t that they want to believe in.

#4- Interesting that academia’s influence in the 1970s dismissed the traditional “Five Ws and How” by eliminating the “why” and how” that are considered basic in information or problem solving that has been followed by today’s journalists interjecting the “why” and “how” into news accounts as opinion and boldly declaring their news conveyance as factual.

Analytically, “why” and “how” are necessary for a report to be considered complete; “why” did it happen, “how” did it happen. Facts are not opinions.

“A standard series of questions has been a way of formulating or analyzing rhetorical questions since classical antiquity.”

CNN’s dicey interview with student on

Washington Post, by Erik Wemple    Original Article

CNN host John Berman was in an all-too-familiar bind Tuesday morning. There were reports of a school shooting at Great Mills High School in St. Mary’s County. (Tweet) Official sources provided only scant details, as Berman apprised his viewers on Tuesday’s edition of the morning program “New Day.” There was a shooting; the school was on lockdown; the situation had been “contained.” In the absence of hard news, CNN did what cable news providers do — it called in an expert. “Let’s bring in James Gagliano, former FBI supervisory special agent, to help us decipher what we know,” said Berman,

The vice president of the Association of Engineers in Mexico disputed a claim made by the Mexican Attorney General that there were 30 narco-tunnels found along the U.S.—Mexico Border between January 2010 to June 2017.Roberto Mendez Meza said that it is likely that there were 80 tunnels discovered during that time, contradicting the official number given by the Federal Attorney General’s Office (PGR), according to Reforma News Agency.

Big media is confused these days. Their go-to story about Trump-Russia collusion is a dead end. The House Intelligence Committee wrapped up their investigation finding, “No evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians." Trump is hitting his stride, shedding his first year of advisors and cabinet members, adjusting his team as he settles into his job as President. Like a molting snake, shedding its first layer of skin as it grows a new and improved layer. The swamp is beginning to drain as evidenced by Andrew McCabe’s dismissal.

Jeff Bezos has a new four-legged friend. The Amazon CEO posted a photo to his Twitter account on Monday of him “walking” his new “dog” – a four-legged Boston Dynamics SpotMini robot, the same robot that recently learned how to open doors. (Photo/Tweet) Bezos is currently attending Amazon’s invite-only MARS conference. MARS stands for Machine learning, home Automation, Robotics, and Space exploration. It was at the MARS conference last year that Bezos famously piloted a 13-foot robot from Hankook Mirae Technology.

Speaker Paul Ryan is set to pass the largest spending bill in US history next to Barack Obama’s trillion dollar failed stimulus. President Trump spoke on Monday about the importance of the border wall with Mexico to enhance national security and battle the opioid crisis in America. But once again it is unlikely that funding for the border wall will be included in the spending bill. Democrats don’t want it. So it is unlikely Ryan will include it in the bill. Planned Parenthood and funding for sanctuary cities will be included in the bill. Politico reported: Congressional leaders and top

(Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called?

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

A prominent Republican says that Donald Trump would doom his presidency if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller. Sen Lindsey Graham, during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union”, said that Mr Mueller is following the evidence where it takes him as he investigates Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Getting rid of Mr Mueller, the senator said, would be a step too far. “If he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency, because we´re a rule of law nation,” Mr Graham said. ”I think it´s very important he be allowed to do

The firing of Andrew McCabe, the discovery of his “private notes,” the ill-tempered response by other Obama loyalists and a yet to be disclosed Inspector General’s report on an investigation that began before Donald Trump had come to office are all pieces of a story that dwarfs the still absent evidence of anything Trump and company did to cooperate with Russians in changing votes in Michigan and Wisconsin. So many Democrats and Republicans have asserted the lack of evidence in the Russian collusion issue its become comical if not annoying to endure as the uninformed continue to argue otherwise.

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it
