Four days after special counsel John Durham revealed new findings in the investigation into the Trump-Russia collision, which states that close associates of Hillary Clinton were monitoring internet traffic at Trump properties and the White House in order to create a “narrative,” CNN En Español broke the Spanish-language media's silence with a report that downplayed the news as same-old-same-old material hyped by the conservative media.
Watch as anchor Juan Carlos Lopez duly dismisses the whole Durham affair as nothing more than Trumper rubbish. In his closing line, the anchor even preempts the future findings of the investigation:

JUAN CARLOS LOPEZ, CNNEE: You may have heard a particular version in the media, especially conservative media, which says that the investigating prosecutor John Durham, who was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr to get to the center of the investigation into the alleged contacts between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia. Well, you may have heard that Hillary Clinton's campaign was behind Trump's spying; Trump himself said that this would call for the death penalty. But it turns out that's not what this document filed by investigating prosecutor John Durham said.
Contrary to what conservative media and followers of former President Trump himself say, the investigating prosecutor Durham did not claim that there was interception of any of Trump's communications by his campaign. In affirmation about the search that was made of these phones on the role of Sussman is not new and had been reported last year, only that on Friday it was included in the process that will follow and will then be seen in the trial and proven to be true or not, but no, they have not shown anything, contrary to the headlines you may have seen about the Clinton campaign and alleged spying on Trump or his campaign.
Lopez's fixation with the conservative media as evil purveyors of misinformation -- rule #1 at CNN -- came through right from the beginning: "You may have heard a particular version in the media, especially conservative media,"; and then "Contrary to what conservative media and followers of former President Trump himself say"; and, to wrap it up: "Contrary to the headlines you may have seen.." It appeared that the idea here was to blame everything on conservatives and distract from the real subject in question: Hillary Clinton.
In his staunch defense of the former Secretary of State, Lopez said the new filings will be used in "the process that will follow and will then be seen in the trial and proven to be true or not, but no, they have not shown anything, contrary to the headlines you may have seen about the Clinton campaign and alleged spying on Trump or his campaign." In other words, though the findings still have to be proven in court, he's certain nothing will be found.
That's powerful. But it is also a deviation from the norm when stories were reported on for weeks on end despite there being no evidence whatsoever to support them. For example: Trump's taxes and the "suckers and losers" hoax, just to name a few.
