In her recent post “William Barr Has Suddenly Become Chatty—and He’s Provided Quite an Information Dump” Sharyl Attkisson summarizes Barr’s recent interviews. It’s very well put together and even has some schedule info on Durham’s investigation (won’t end before Spring or Summer). If you’re interested in what Barr says here is a good summary.
Attkisson was spied on by the Obama Justice Department because of her sources in the Intelligence community and she knows quite a bit about how and why. She points out that Flynn as the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under Obama knew what was going on and was supposed to clean up the FISA malfeasance. And that’s why he was targeted.
Sharyl Attkisson is not a conservative. She’s probably a liberal but apparently she’s also an honest journalist. But when she let that honesty infect her journalism and threaten the Mainstream Media’s Narrative CBS shut down her ability to break stories they didn’t want seen. When she left CS the narrative was that she was a closet conservative who was finally outed and had to leave the Land of Oz and descend into the nether regions where troglodyte reporters wail and gnash their teeth. She tells her tale and it’s interesting to see how this should be all the objective proof needed to confirm the truth of the Narrative’s stranglehold over the Mainstream Media. Here is someone who isn’t conservative but experienced what happens when you try to tell objective political facts about the Left.
Sheryl did a nice job hitting the high points on the current mania to suppress the opposition by curating it out of the mainstream. Short and to the point.
Sharyl Attkisson was an investigative reporter for CBS. But during the Obama administration she realized that CBS wouldn’t allow anything negative about Obama to be published. She resigned and became an independent journalist (an honest reporter!). This interview was very interesting. In it she discusses the MSM’s abandonment of objectivity with respect to Trump. Afterwards she opines that Trump has shown himself immune to the media’s weapons.
Tucker Carlson was part of the conservative establishment press when the Iraq War broke out. He has since reconsidered the wisdom of that war. Here is discussed his recent quarrels with Max Boot and Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.
Here is a link that includes links to the videos of the quarrels.
The arguments are very enlightening. I think Carlson gets the better of it but I wish the argument didn’t involve so much shouting over each other. It’s extremely sophomoric.
