Conservative Leaders React to MSNBC, CNN’s Coverage of Russian Orchestrated ‘Protests.’

This past week, CNN and MSNBC were caught in a rather embarrassing folly exposing them for the dolts they are. As a result of information contained within the Robert Mueller indictment, the public learned that Russian actors organized protests in both New York City and Charlotte, NC following the election in November 2016. As Rich Noyes of NewsBusters points out both CNN and MSNBC slavishly and unwittingly covered the Russian-orchestrated march in New York on November 12, 2016 with zeal. 

In other words, both these outlets were unwitting accomplices in Russia’s plot to sow discord in the 2016 American presidential campaign. How ironic. Both CNN and MSNBC, outlets representative of their liberal media brethren, were caught up in the very act they have been so strenuously arguing the Trump campaign was mixed up in --- colluding with the Russians. But even if CNN and MSNBC didn’t have a clue that this so-called protest was a organized by Russian agents, it’s clear from the enthusiastic coverage given to this so called protest that they were eager to put a glowing positive spin on it. 

This latest example of biased reporting is just more proof, the media are in an all out war against the president and his conservative agenda. On the network evening newscasts in 2017, an astounding 90% of their Trump coverage was negative. Such coverage is representative of their unfair treatment of the President’s agenda overall and the liberal media’s opposition to his conservative agenda.

The media’s liberal agenda, hypocrisy, and incompetence on are on full naked display and conservatives are calling them out.

Conservative leaders react to CNN and MSNBC’s coverage of the Russian-orchestrated protest in New York City:

What the liberal media has not figured out is that THEY are the ones colluding with the Russians to destabilize our country.  I’ve wondered for more than a year who’s paying for all these protests.  Mueller needs to look into the sources of every permit, every crowd generating effort and every dollar spent for every anti-Trump rally over the past 15 months.  The Resistance movement need only look into the mirror for any “collusion” with the Russians.

In an honorably conducted political process, the news media and leaders of both political parties would focus on the actual content of the sixteen indictments of Russians who obviously meddled on various sides in the 2016 elections.  Instead, the response of most media and many Democrats was to claim, falsely, that Donald Trump had repeatedly denied that any Russians did anything wrong.  Once again, our eyes and ears are bombarded by deliberately concocted fake news.

Yellow journalism first reared its ugly head in the 1890’s ironically perpetrated by Joseph Pulitzer. It was sensationalistic, tawdry, depraved, lacking in content or integrity. The whole goal was circulation. A little over

100 years yellow journalism is again preying upon the American people. This is even uglier though. It is not just about ratings, it is about ugly and decadent liberals pushing an ugly liberal agenda of radical chic and deconstructionism. Stalin would be proud of the American liberal media doing its job so well.

It seems appropriate they give awards to unethical liberals named Pulitzers.
-Craig Shirley, presidential historian and Reagan biographer

 

Even now, without a scrap of evidence to stand on, some outlets refuse to give up their bogus theories of Trump's involvement. Maybe they're upset about being duped. After all, as Media Research Center (MRC) points out, they were the ones who were played the fool. Liberal networks were airing almost around-the-clock coverage of the anti-Trump rallies after the election -- only to learn that the Russians had organized the whole thing!
-Tony Perkins, Family Research Council

 

CNN and MSNBC are as biased as their viewers. They pick stories to fit their ideologies. Their coverage of the fake anti-Trump rallies is but the latest example. That’s not journalism. 
-Colin Hanna, Let Freedom Ring

 

It has become blatantly obvious that we no longer have an objective press but rather an ideological one, that leans left. I firmly believe that the preservation of this Constitutional Republic hinges on a free press, but today’s liberal progressive press are slaves to a political system of governance that is antithetical to the fundamentals of our Nation. Vladimir Lenin was right about those “useful idiots”, and Russian President Putin has enlisted him in colluding in the objective of sowing political unrest and discord in America.
