The mainstream media has been foaming at the mouth hoping that Trump knew about intelligence that said that Russians were paying bounties to insurgents in Afghanistan for killing US and coalition troops. Social media ran with a #TRE45ON hashtag. They so wanted it to be true. Anything to prevent his reelection. Smear, slime, lie.
It turns out that WaPo has been forced to admit that the information was deemed sketchy and in need of additional confirmation. But hey, let’s run with it anyway!
The NY Times was equally complicit. It was running stories of slain soldiers in Afghanistan in an attempt to smear the president. These journalists have absolutely no morals or ethics. Use dead soldiers to push uncorroborated evidence to feed a narrative.
Shameless. WaPo’s “Democracy dies in darkness” and The NY Times “All the news that fit to print” mottos are perhaps the most inaccurate descriptors imaginable.
As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than they hate Trump.
