For some reason, there is a huge disconnect from integrity when the mainstream media reports ugly rumors as truth when conservatives or Republicans are involved, versus what they report when a preferred Democrat, like Hillary Clinton, is the subject of attention. Hypocrites!
Of course, the topic in the news is always Donald Trump’s alleged, but unsubstantiated, collusion with Russian agents and their hacking of the Democratic National Committee servers to try and manipulate the election results. Again, there is no proof in these allegations, but the leftist media just can’t seem to let it go.
Sean Spicer, White House press secretary, had to step in and straighten out the media narrative on this subject. How? By stating the truth: that Hillary Clinton herself had strong ties to Russia, for which she and hubby, Bill Clinton, profited handsomely!
From Conservative Tribune:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer schooled the media Thursday during a news conference when asked about President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s ties to Russia.
Spicer reminded reporters of former presidential candidate Hiilary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, who sat on the board of a Kremlin-backed energy company that received millions from a Russian government fund, and his brother, Tony Podesta, who lobbied against sanctions on Russian banks.
Spicer said these facts were tied to Clinton, who was “the face of the failed Russia reset policy.”
He also said that those things were not “even close” to her “most significant role” in regard to Russia.
“As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, along with the Obama administration, approved a deal that gave Russia one-fifth of America’s uranium reserves,” he said. “Hillary’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, received over half-a-million dollars by a paid speech by a bank connected to the uranium deal. And Vladimir Putin personally called the former president and thanked him for giving the speech.”
He then pointed to the utter hypocrisy of the mainstream media by calling attention to how Manafort, who worked with a Russian entity a decade ago and worked for less than five months with the Trump campaign, is “the subject of rampant media speculation all day long.” Meanwhile, he said, reporters ignore the fact that the Clintons had “much more expensive, extensive ties” to Russia.
Watch the video of Spicer addressing the “alleged collusion” issue.
Every time the news media focuses on Trump, it’s to report something they regard as a scandal and it’s becoming more obvious to the American people that the media has an unfair bias against him. Especially when they ignore the unsavory deeds that big name Liberals get by with.
This is a blight upon American journalism that the dishonest establishment media should held accountable for! They should never again be trusted on anything they report!
