It’s Official, Leftist Journalistic Hatchet-Man Admits Russiagate Has Destroyed the Credibility of the “Press”

Matt Taibbi, the Rolling Stone hatchet-man, has the bare honesty to admit that the outright lies that were the stock in trade of the Russiagate frenzy have convinced an outright majority of Americans that the press was in the bag for the Dems and they shouldn’t believe anything the press tells them about President Trump.

It’s a long, boring, rambling indictment but to give him credit it’s pretty substantive and paints his allies on the Left as at best partisan fools and at worst perjured criminals.

One cheer for Matt Taibbi?

      Even that may be too much.

    For me, the media lost all credibility during the Obama administrations when, after 8 years of hammering President Bush, the hardest questions for Obama were: “How would you grade your performance so far?” and “It’s March, how are your brackets doing?”
    These “Guardians of Freedom” followed that sickening performance up by abandoning all pretense of impartiality and declaring war on Trump and telling us it was for our own good; that Trump was unfit to serve.
    If the “Press” wants to redeem themselves, they can start by asking Adam Shiff for the proof of collusion he claimed he had in February of last year. Then they can go after the intelligence community including John Schindler (NSA) who said Trump would “Die in Jail” and John Brennan (CIA) who said Trump’s children would be indicted as recently as this month. After that, they can demand an investigation into the FISA abuses and the “Unmaskings” under the Obama administration.
    I won’t hold my breath.

    Oh, and please show me one democrat who could withstand over two years of investigation by a special prosecutor with the power to subpoena anyone and who can command the FBI to kick in their door at 4am with CNN’s cameras running in the background. This prosecutor’s favorite trick is to charge an underling with some crime to get them to roll over on their bosses with real (or fake – it doesn’t matter) accusations.
    I’d like to see Pelosi, Schumer or DiFi withstand that kind of scrutiny.

      So far the only lasting good that has come out of all this is the implacable hatred these people have engendered in us. I hope to be around when they get what they deserve. I hope the President appoints a special counsel to investigate Comey, Brennan and Mueller. I’d love to see the latter, frog-marched out of his house in his pajamas at 3:30 am. Would almost make the whole thing worthwhile.

    I won’t hold my breath for accountability on the part of any of these swamp dwellers. It’s a rarity for liberals to be held to account for their corrupt actions. Despite how much this phony Russian collusion narrative was started and spread around incessantly by the leftist media, the part that really pisses me off is that Republicans rarely have the stomach or spine to come back with a vengeance and put these corrupt scumbags in jail.

      We’ll know soon enough whether Barr and Graham are serious or blowing smoke.
