In an official statement on Friday, the Department of Justice announced the indictment of former Maryland executive Mark Lambert on “11 counts related to foreign bribery, fraud and money laundering scheme.” The indictment effectively tied Lambert to the Uranium One scandal because his alleged illicit activity involved JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), an arm of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation which now owns both TENEX and Uranium One. Despite the importance of the new indictment, the major three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had been dead silent.
To the shock of no one (at least in the NewsBusters newsroom), the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored on Friday morning the stunning revelation that the Clinton Foundation is under FBI investigation for possible crimes while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. FNC’s Fox & Friends was the only cable or network morning show to confirm and cover the story, spending eight minutes and 50 seconds (minus teasers) on the Clinton Foundation.
After conservative media forced the networks and liberal cable news to finally cover the latest FBI revelations over the Clinton Foundation’s financial dealings with Russia, they’ve changed tactics from ignoring the story, to dismissing it as bogus.
You know once the media starts bringing out the “dictator” and “authoritarian” rhetoric when it comes to President Trump, they’re truly worried about what may happen. That’s where CNN went this morning after reports broke last night that the Justice Department may be appointing a special counsel to investigate the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s e-mails.
In an interview Monday with C-SPAN, Hillary Clinton denied that any of the new stories on Russian manipulation of the Clintons and the world uranium market are true. “I would say it’s the same bologna they’ve been peddling for years,” the scandal-ridden Democrat said during an interview on C-SPAN, “and there’s been no credible evidence by anyone. In fact, it’s been debunked repeatedly and will continue to be debunked.”
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.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement today in response to the media blackout of the recent developments in the Clinton-Uranium scandal. On Tuesday, The Hill revealed the FBI had found evidence of a Russian bribery plot before the Obama Administration’s controversial 2010 nuclear deal with Moscow.
Thirstier than an ultra-marathoner lost in Death Valley in mid-July. Hyping the entertainment magazine's latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, "How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?" Welcome to the liberal media's manufacturing of "cool." Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.
Two months after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election, the Clinton Global Initiative -- the “networking” arm of the Clinton Foundation -- is shutting down.
The left-leaning Rockefeller Foundation just got a leader who served under one of the most liberal presidents of the United States. The Rockefeller Foundation chose former Obama official Rajiv Shah to be its next president, according to a Jan. 4 The New York Times report. Lefty organizations like the Natural Resources Defense Council have received funding from the Rockefeller Foundation.
The liberal media had been trying to make a lot of hay out of accusations that the Trump family had tried to sell access to themselves and their president-elect father. So far such concerns seem to have little merit since all of the instances pointed to by accusers have not actually happened. But that didn’t stop it from being a topic of conversation on CNN’s OutFront on Wednesday. “This has been a stumbling block for the Trumps,” argued fill in host Poppy Harlow, “Why even open yourself up to this criticism?”
Just when we thought we'd heard the last from Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC bomb-thrower has created an online video series for GQ magazine entitled The Resistance, in which the former sportscaster and political commentator is lashing out at President-Elect Donald Trump as “the man who was elected by a minority” whose actions are “not normal.”
The fire-breathing pundit also targeted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a close confidante of Trump. Olbermann argued there were “avenues” for economic blow back against Trump supporters like Giuliani, who he said has ties to ride-sharing app company Uber.
