Every person who voted for Trump regardless of reasons, needs to stand up for him right now, this situation is beyond the pale, trying to delegitimize him before he even gets into office.
The Democrats through their surrogates (the media and sympathetic voices in the intel community/state dept) are trying to lay the groundwork for a push in two years time to impeach Trump on bogus claims….right now they’re starting to muck up the water as much as possible. They’ll be relentless but I don’t know if it will work, it appears that Trump is developing some of the same kind of teflon that Reagan had. Plus the fact that the people are sick to death of the MSM fake media. What they’re doing now is nothing short of a coup attempt.
FAKE NEWS MEDIA GO TO WAR WITH TRUMP
CNN and Buzzfeed go all in on unsubstantiated dossier of anti-Trump “intelligence.”
January 12, 2017
The leftwing online “news” outlet Buzzfeed
disgraced itself by publishing a widely discredited document making unsubstantiated charges against President–elect Donald Trump, purporting to tie Mr. Trump to compromising information that the Russian government had allegedly collected on him. The allegations regurgitated by Buzzfeed came from a “dossier” which, Buzzfeed said on its site, was “compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official.”
The site tried to cover itself with a warning: “The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.” Buzzfeed’s own editor, Ben Smith, admitted that he has “serious reason to doubt the allegations” in it. Nevertheless, Buzzfeed went ahead and published the unverified allegations with the flimsy rationale “that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.”
Ben Smith tried to put lipstick on his pig by claiming that “publishing this dossier reflects how we see the job of reporters in 2017.” If the job of reporters is to knowingly publish completely unsubstantiated, sensationalist stories whose only “value” is to further polarize the country, the media are in big trouble. Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly,” which Gallup has been polling since 1972
, will continue to hit new lows.
