Durham, The Times, A Pulitzer And Walter Duranty
In theory, the Durham Report and the testimony of FBI whistle blowers was to be about the internal conduct of the FBI. But it also underlines the failure of the Pulitzer Prize folks.
The Worst Political Scandal in American History?
This week, Special Counsel John Durham released a 316-page report detailing the origins of Operation Crossfire Hurricane -- the FBI’s investigation into supposed connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. The report is an astounding expose of corruption and collusion -- not between Trump and Russia, but between the Hillary Clinton campaign, friendlies at the FBI and top…
NBC Tool Ken Dilanian Shills for Deep State, Dismisses Durham Report
In much the same way he did hours earlier on Monday’s NBC Nightly News, NBC Justice correspondent Ken Dilanian — who should be known as CIA Ken for his fealty to the agency — surfaced on Tuesday’s Today to further spin for his real bosses in the intelligence community on Special Counsel John Durham’s report on the Trump-Russia probe.
‘Nothing New’; CNN, MSNBC’s Initial Durham Reactions Distort Report
Trump-Russia probe Special Counsel John Durham’s report dropped late Monday afternoon and, with only one criminal conviction (via a plea agreement), the liberal media were ebullient in celebrating the lack of mass indictments some billed as a foregone conclusion. It was nonetheless damaging as it found “neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any…
ABC/NBC Still Insist the Trump-Russia Probe Was Needed, Despite Durham
On Monday, Special Council John Durham’s long-awaited report into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation fell out of the blue. The report faults the FBI and says they should never have opened Crossfire Hurricane since it was entirely based on “leads provided or funded by Trump's political opponents.” Despite how Durham spelled out the fact that the Trump-Russia probe was based on “raw,…
NYT: Failed Mueller Probe Noble, Durham’s Mere ‘Fodder for Grievances'
New York Times legal reporter Charlie Savage and the paper’s official fact-checker Linda Qiu teamed up on Wednesday’s front page to cover the acquittal of Igor Danchenko for lying to the FBI in “Russian Analyst for Trump Dossier Acquitted of Lying to the FBI.” For the Times, it was a golden opportunity to again bash special counsel John Durham’s investigation into how the FBI…
The 1/6 Pelosi Publicists Have Barely Noticed the John Durham Probe
ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and NPR are all expected to air live coverage of the last hearing of the Pelosi-picked panel investigating the January 6 riot. This is the ninth hearing (two of them in prime time) that these networks have provided hours of free publicity to Pelosi and the Democrats, who are using today's hearing to raise funds in the midterms. Meanwhile, all of them are ignoring special…
NY Times: Durham's Just Investigating 'Conspiracy Theories'
The New York Times, which pushed special investigator Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government that proved illusory, is reveling in the acquittal of a Democratic operative in special counsel’s John Durham inquiry (an inquiry into “conspiracy theories,” according to Savage) into the possibly corrupted origins of Mueller’s…
Column: The Mueller Boosters Decry Durham's 'Debacle'
In the media’s eyes, Robert Mueller was a righteous hero like Eliot Ness, devoted to exposing Trump. Even though he was praised as a straight shooter by Democrats before this job, John Durham is now dismissed as a right-wing media fixation.
NewsBusters Podcast: Ignoring John Durham, Then Slashing Him
Special counsel John Durham's first trial in his investigation of the origins of the Russian collusion probe was ignored by the networks for weeks....until the accused Hillary Clinton lawyer was found Not Guilty. Then it was a "stinging defeat" and "major blow"!
Avlon Gloats Over Sussmann Verdict in Irony-Rich 'Reality Check'
If you ever feel like being lectured by someone who thinks you have the mental capacity of a toddler, look no further than CNN’s John Avlon. On Wednesday’s New Day, Avlon decided to use his five-minute monologue Reality Check to gloat over the acquittal of Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann and ironically tout CNN as “reality-based media” as opposed to “partisan media…
After Ignoring Trial, Nets Gloat Over Michael Sussmann's Acquittal
In one of the most outrageous examples of leftist media bias, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News decided to finally report on the Durham/Sussmann Russia Hoax trial, but only after Michael Sussmann was acquitted of lying to the FBI. Both networks had no interest in covering the trial while it was ongoing. It wasn’t until the Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer was found…
Another Big Story the Press Missed
WASHINGTON -- The day after Robby Mook, the head of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign for the presidency, implicated her at the top of a conspiracy to link Donald Trump in 2016 with a Russian bank, I could find no mention of it in the leading newspapers of the Republic, save The Wall Street Journal. The Journal covered Mook's testimony in a federal courtroom quite well.
WashPost Buries the Robby Mook Bombshell on Page A8, Paragraph 25
The Washington Post didn't notice Robby Mook's "bombshell" testimony that Hillary Clinton authorized sharing since-debunked computer data linking Donald Trump with a Russian bank in the last days of the 2016 campaign until Sunday. The story was on page A-8. Mook's testimony was delayed until paragraph 25!
