The Real Russia Scandal the Media Is Ignoring

The Leftist media is always ignoring big news items. Hey stupid conservatives — you need to have your own mass media and not expect the old-line liberal media to cover the truth. How many years do I have to point out this simple fact before conservative money people get serious about funding genuine journalism on a large scale?

Here is the closing line of this op ed: “If the American people do not have the facts, they cannot make good decisions, and if they cannot make good decisions, our democracy is at risk.”

Ya think?

And I don’t apologize for using the word stupid. It just is.

Here are Rep. Lamar Smith and Rep. Alex Mooney writing at the Daily Signal:

We’ve heard much ado about Trump-Russia “collusion” in the print and broadcast media since the president’s inauguration.

The media’s interest in this non-story has not ceased. Yet when reports emerged last year that Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, that story was mostly ignored by the major networks.

As co-chairs of the House Media Fairness Caucus, we sent letters to the presidents of ABC, CBS, and NBC News concerning their lack of coverage of this actual Russian scandal. Despite the severity of the allegations, at the time of our letter, the three networks had only spent a combined 4 minutes and 38 seconds covering the story.

In comparison, the networks had spent 1,000-plus minutes on their Trump-Russia collusion stories since President Donald Trump’s inauguration, representing 20 percent of all their coverage of the Trump presidency.

As secretary of state, Clinton’s role was critical to the sale of Uranium One—a uranium mining company—to the Russian-controlled firm Rosatom. The House Intelligence Committee, along with the FBI, opened an investigation into this deal.

That’s two active congressional investigations into an issue of major national security concern, with less than five minutes of news coverage informing the American people about it.
