Russian uranium deal
In yet another example of MSNBC haughtily dismissing the Uranium/Clinton/Russia scandal, on Tuesday, after the House Intelligence Committee announced a new investigation into the Obama administration deal, anchors Andrea Mitchell and Craig Melvin touted Hillary Clinton denouncing the story as “nonsense” and “baloney.”
For the first seven days after The Hill published startling new information about the Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal, the 24-hour cable news giant CNN had produced less than five minutes (3 minutes, 54 seconds) of actual news coverage about the case. In fact, from the morning of October 17 through the morning of October 24, CNN's reporters and anchors only mentioned the scandal twice.
Bribery, bullying of an informant and now a Russian spy ring: The Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal has all the ingredients of a juicy spy thriller, but so far the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks have shied away from the latest developments in the case. On Sunday night, The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann reported the newest wrinkle: “A female Russian spy posing as an American accountant....used a false identity to burrow her way into the employ of a major Democratic donor in hopes of gaining intelligence on Hillary Clinton’s department.”
RESTON, VA — Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell blasted the media’s censorship in a Monday morning statement of the developing Uranium scandal involving the Clintons and Obama Administration.
There’s no such thing as a participation trophy for the left. So they have to make something up. The Women’s Media Center (WMC), founded by lefties Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, created an award this year for the sole purpose of having something to give to Hillary Clinton: the Wonder Woman Award
Why the collective liberal media yawn on the multi-headed Democratic scandals surfacing everywhere except on their pages and airwaves? It's not that the stories are too far-fetched and thin to interest self-respecting journalists, because they are real, damning and supported by sufficiently credible evidence to warrant serious attention and scrutiny.
While the media covered up the breaking news put out by The Hill that the FBI discovered Russia’s alleged monetary involvement with the Clinton Foundation in an uranium deal with the Obama administration, libs and journalists on Twitter are trying to find a way to spin the story in their direction.
On Thursday, MSNBC’s Brian Williams finally mentioned the words “Russia,” “uranium” and “Clinton” in the same segment BUT it was only to dismiss President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media’s failure to cover this week’s new revelations in the growing scandal.
In a statement to the press on Thursday, President Trump scolded the liberal media for going out of their way to protect Hillary Clinton and not report on the new development in the Uranium/Clinton/Russia scandal recently revived by The Hill. But despite the President’s shaming and claims that the media didn’t have a choice when covering stuff Trump was talking about, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all ignored the scandal.
Thursday afternoon, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell sharply criticized the establishment press for ignoring damning new information about how Russia, according to a blockbuster report at The Hill, gained "control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply." 2-1/2 days later, the Associated Press has finally reacted — by treating the report as a mere "reprise" of old news.
So did Callum Borchers draw the short straw over at the Washington Post? One has to ask because he ended up with the rather unenviable task of performing spin control on the Uranium One scandal which broke wide open on October 17 with a big story written by John Solomon and Alison Spann in The Hill.
CNN briefly ended their network-wide blackout on Wednesday afternoon of the massive Russian uranium story with a 19-second recap of President Trump’s comments moments earlier in the Oval Office about The Hill’s investigation. “The big story is the uranium that was purchased — that was obtained by the Russians during the Obama administration. He says that's one of the big stories — one of the worst stories of the past decade,” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
