America loves a winner!


Nothing Trump is accused of from now on by the press will be believed by huge chunks of the population, a group that (perhaps thanks to this story) is now larger than his original base. As Baker notes, a full 50.3% of respondents in a poll conducted this month said they agree with Trump the Mueller probe is a “witch hunt.”

As if it ever was. They lost any smidgen of remaining credibility when they all wept like crying babies on television when Hillary lost. Their laughable "resistance" that arose from their collective disgrace and shame of that night is all they can do to avoid jumping off roofs.

The WMD mess had massive real-world negative impact, leading to over a hundred thousand deaths and trillions in lost taxpayer dollars. Unless Russiagate leads to a nuclear conflict, we’re unlikely to ever see that level of consequence.

Still, Russiagate has led to unprecedented cooperation between the government and Internet platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google, all of which are censoring pages on the left, right, and in between in the name of preventing the “sowing of discord.” The story also had a profound impact on the situation in places like Syria, where Russian and American troops have sat across the Euphrates River from one another, two amped-up nuclear powers at a crossroads.

As a purely journalistic failure, however, WMD was a pimple compared to Russiagate. The sheer scale of the errors and exaggerations this time around dwarfs the last mess. Worse, it’s led to most journalists accepting a radical change in mission. We’ve become sides-choosers, obliterating the concept of the press as an independent institution whose primary role is sorting fact and fiction.

We had the sense to eventually look inward a little in the WMD affair, which is the only reason we escaped that episode with any audience left. Is the press even capable of that kind of self-awareness now? WMD damaged our reputation. If we don’t turn things around, this story will destroy it.

I wonder how proud Mueller is for being at Ground Zero concerning both of these shameful chapters in American history.

And reality tv show hosts.

I think what's funny is the number of "men" who hate Hillary Clinton so much they don't have problem with their president being Putin's c*ck holster. I bet their dad's would smack them silly if they knew.

Jeez. Despite there being no evidence of collusion, you still cling to the fantasy?

That sure sounds like a homophobic slur to me.

Not as bad as Marco's all out hate speech against homosexuals a week ago, but I find it quite amusing that you so called progressives seem to hate gays so much.
