Columbia Journalism Review excoriates mainstream media for trumped-up coverage of Trump-Russia ties

Must read

The Skinny: The media watchdog Columbia Journalism Review, after investigating mainstream “Russiagate” coverage, including the 2018 New York Times and Washington Post material that won a Pulitzer, found that the press omitted facts that contradicted their narrative.

Bombshells from the CJR report include:

— The January 2018 omission by the New York Times of a publicly available document, wherein the lead FBI investigator didn’t think there was much there on Trump-Russia ties after 10 months of digging.

— Another NYT piece offering a disclaimer that there was no evidence for Russian collusion, before quoting anonymous officials ‘alarmed’ over supposed Trump-Russia ties in the very next paragraph.

— Details on how the alliance between the Fusion GPS opposition research team and the Hillary Clinton campaign fueled the mainstream media “Russiagate” narrative.
