Media Collusion to Block Trump’s Agenda

The Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, Reuters and even Wall Street Journal are all regurgitating the same garbage.

My friend Foster Friess, a former Army intel officer and successful business/investment entrepreneur, sent a note this morning critical of a headline in The Wall Street Journal.

Foster, who now heads an initiative called “Return to Civility,” rightly objected to a hit-piece on Donald Trump entitled, “Moscow Bank Aided Trump Partner’s Deal.” The WSJ has now slightly softened that headline to read, “Russian State-Run Bank Financed Deal Involving Trump Hotel Partner,” but as Foster noted, the report still asserts, “VEB, a Russian state-run bank … financed a deal involving Donald Trump’s onetime partner…” Got that? A lead headline on a Russian bank that has a connection to a “onetime partner” of Trump.

And the “connection” soon fades to nothing. The WSJ then notes the former partner’s funding came from proceeds of a sale of a separate company the former partner sold “involving” the Russian VEB bank. In other words, Trump knows a guy who once used a Russian bank.

The Patriot Post has been exposing mass media malpractice for two decades. Analysis of how the Demo/MSM propaganda machine has covered Trump clearly demonstrates the abject bias. I have written recently about the unfortunate devolution of the once-respectable Washington Post into the abyss of tabloid journalism. Now, The Wall Street Journal is charging down that same dezinformatsiya path — because ad revenues trump the truth. Of course the Democrats in collusion with their MSM propagators, are doing everything they can to block the Trump administration agenda.

I note that earlier this week, the Washington Post, New York Times, Reuters, CNN and Wall Street Journal were all regurgitating “news” from the same echo-chamber memos in regard to the unsourced Trump/Russia “security breach” and the Trump/Comey/Flynn accusations. In a 12-hour period, they each published the charges as if a matter of proven fact.

On the Trump/Russia issue: “Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador” (Washington Post), “Trump Revealed Highly Classified Intelligence to Russia” (New York Times), “Trump revealed intelligence secrets to Russians” (Reuters), “Trump shared classified info with Russians” (CNN), “Trump Shared Intelligence Secrets With Russians” (Wall Street Journal).

On the Trump/Comey/Flynn accusations: “Trump asked Comey to shut down Flynn investigation” (Washington Post), “Trump Asked Comey To Drop Flynn Investigation” (New York Times), “Trump asked Comey to end investigation of Michael Flynn” (Reuters), “Trump asked Comey to end Flynn investigation” (CNN), “Trump Asked Comey to Drop Flynn Investigation” (Wall Street Journal).

This is not journalism. This is cheap checkout-line tabloid trash.
