While the Left has not a shred of evidence of Donald Trump dealing with Russians in any way, we know that Hillary Clinton brokered a deal to give 20 percent of America’s uranium to the Russians.
This was done under the careful eye of Obama, who observed from the 19th tee.
And as the Left continue their snipe hunt for Trump, more evidence is found about their dealings with the Russians.
Earlier this week, Tucker Carlson interviewed the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple. Carlson brought up the fact that the paper regularly receives money from the Russian government. They profit from publishing “native advertising” in the paper.
As discussed, the paid Russian propaganda sections are known as “Russia: Beyond the Headlines”. Tough for Wemple, ergo the Washington Post to hide from this revelation.
It was interesting to note Wemple’s reaction, essentially shock, as Carlson calls him out on this oversight.
Carlson’s explains his curiostiy, in that Wemple plays “media watchdog,” but he’s not watching his own paper.
In typical Leftist fashion, Wemple then hides behind the fact that other papers do the SAME THING! This reminds me of the rationalization of Democrats back in the days of owning people.
If everybody has slaves, then slavery must be acceptable, right?
In Oct of 2015 The Daily Caller noted the propaganda, in China, Russia Pay Washington Post To Publish Their Propaganda.
“These paid supplements have run in the paper semi-regularly for many years, and have always been clearly labeled as advertising,” Post spokeswoman Kris Coratti told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“We give advertisers wide latitude to have their say — generally if the ads are not illegal or advocating illegal actions we try not to place limits on speech or content. We have accepted the China Daily and Russia Beyond the Headlines ads for years under these standards,” Coratti said.
On Carson’s own website he’s actually done Wemple’s job; he’s just not getting Wemple’s paycheck.
So exactly who has the ties to Russia?
The fake news media always plays dumb, as Wemple did. They search for things like the “tea party racist,” as they themselves embrace racists in their midst. So when they make claims of Russian influence, you know they are the ones compromised by the Russians.
Remember when The Washington Post itself falsely claimed that 200 mostly conservative websites were tied to the Russians.
PropOrNot’s monitoring report, which was provided to The Washington Post in advance of its public release, identifies more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season, with combined audiences of at least 15 million Americans. On Facebook, PropOrNot estimates that stories planted or promoted by the disinformation campaign were viewed more than 213 million times.
Before publishing this drivel, WaPo’s editor provided this CYA disclaimer; just in case it was found they reported “fake news.”
Editor’s Note: The Washington Post on Nov. 24 published a story on the work of four sets of researchers who have examined what they say are Russian propaganda efforts to undermine American democracy and interests. One of them was PropOrNot, a group that insists on public anonymity, which issued a report identifying more than 200 websites that, in its view, wittingly or unwittingly published or echoed Russian propaganda. A number of those sites have objected to being included on PropOrNot’s list, and some of the sites, as well as others not on the list, have publicly challenged the group’s methodology and conclusions. The Post, which did not name any of the sites, does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet, nor did the article purport to do so. Since publication of The Post’s story, PropOrNot has removed some sites from its list.
They knew it was fake news, but went with the story. And now we find out whose hand was really in the cookie jar.
