Not shocking at all! Two thirds of all Americans – regardless of political orientation – believe the mainstream media is fake news, according to a Harvard University study. Mainstream media are the fake news thugs of the Democrat Party.
From The Hill :
Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.
That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.
“Much of the media is now just another part of the partisan divide in the country with Republicans not trusting the ‘mainstream’ media and Democrats seeing them as reflecting their beliefs,” said Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn. “Every major institution from the presidency to the courts is now seen as operating in a partisan fashion in one direction or the other.”
Rush Limbaugh: Make book: At 5:30 every day there’s now a new bombshell. It’s at 5:30, just in time for the evening news, but too late for the Trump team to mount any kind of defense before the evening news. There’s gonna be one today at 5:30. No idea what it is. But that’s the formula now: A Trump bombshell, a Trump blockbuster, Trump breaking news at five to 5:30.
( Lifezette ) Frenzied for months in the pursuit of a smoking gun to fatally topple the credibility of the administration, the media have become apoplectic over a quick succession of controversies now beleaguering the Trump White House.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer wasted no time late Tuesday in taking the second major controversy to strike the White House this week and use it to demand the impeachment of the president.
The New York Times reported late Tuesday that fired FBI Director James Comey had generated a memo to record that Trump had asked him to consider ending the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
CNN’s legal analyst, extreme liberal Jeff Toobin, said the memo could prove an impeachable offense.
Blitzer then ambushed the next guest, and asked about — the holy grail for the Left in their long war with Trump — impeachment.
“You heard Jeff Toobin say, if this is true, if the president asked the FBI to end the investigation into Michael Flynn as former national security adviser, you heard Jeffrey Toobin say it would be an obstruction of justice, and potentially that could be impeachable,” said Blitzer. “An impeachable offense.”
Blitzer’s guest, Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said it could be. Never mind that impeachment needs an underlying offense. No one knows yet if the memo exists, or if Trump’s “hopes” can be illegal. No one even knows for sure if Flynn has committed a crime that the Department of Justice intends to prosecute. Also, CNN forgets the acting director of the FBI — Comey’s former deputy — Andrew McGabe — told a Senate panel last week that no, Trump never tried to impede the so-called Russia investigation, which involves Flynn.
Nevertheless, Blitzer didn’t ask only King. The next guest brought on by the CNN anchor, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), was also asked pointedly if the report could constitute an impeachable offense.

SEN. JAMES RISCH ON WHITE HOUSE LEAKS TO MEDIA: ‘There Is a Weasel’ Who Is ‘Guilty of Treason’ and that’s Felony!”
Senator Risch on Martha MacCallum ‘The Story’: ‘There Is a Weasel’ Who Is ‘Guilty of Treason’
Senator James Risch told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that someone had committed a crime by leaking details of Trump’s exchange with the Russians to the media:
“Now, someone committed a crime here,” he said. “There is a weasel. And that person is the person who got a hold of the information that happened in that meeting between the President and the foreign minister of Russia. And that was classified information that this person got a hold of and they leaked it to the New York Times. That’s a felony. It is un-American. They endangered the lives of their families and other Americans. That person is guilty of treason and should be held to answer for it.”
Risch also downplayed Trump’s sharing of classified intelligence with the Russians during meeting, saying that he was within his legal right and that Presidents often discuss classified information with other nations.

Washington Post “Fact Checker” columnist Glenn Kessler tweeted on Monday that there was “applause in the newsroom as the Russia-leak scoop breaks the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute.”
After three and a half hours at his transition office, PEOTUS obama took another 6 minute ride through washington, arriving at 157 pm at the nondescript soviet-style building at 15th and L street that houses the washington post.
Around 100 people–Post reporters perhaps?–awaited PEOTUS’s arrival, cheering and bobbing their coffee cups.

LIBERAL RAGE AND SYMPATHETIC TEARS FLOODING AFTER FBI JAMES COMEY GOT FIRED – LAST ELECTION, THEY HATED THE GUY!
When FBI Director James Comey was going after Hillary Clinton last year, he became one of the Democrat Party’s most hated man. Then Hillary thought James Comey was the greatest person on earth when he didn’t charge her with crimes after the first email probe. After election, the left decided to blame Hillary’s defeat on Comey’s second email probe in October. Today, the liberal rage and tears are flooding the internet because Donald Trump finally fired this FBI director/political hack and the Democrats are concerned it’s going to affect the Russia-Trump manufactured fake scandal.
“The only reason James Comey was fired is because he was investigating the man who fired him.” – Jeffrey Toobin
Jeffrey Toobin (CNN) on firing of James Comey: “This is the kind of thing that happens in non-democracies.” “This is not normal.”
Last night, fake news CNN finally decided to report on Susan Rice ‘unmasking’ scandal by calling it fake news and telling their viewers to ignore it. Networks like NBC, ABC and CBS remained ZERO coverage until today. Same with liberal Huffington Post. I bet they finally got their marching order last night to defend Susan Rice surveillance of Trump team as obviously ordered by her boss Barack Obama who is currently in some island in Tahiti frolicking with his boyfriends .
“So President Trump wants you to believe that he is the victim of a ‘crooked scheme.’ Those are his words. And here are our words: There is no evidence of any wrongdoing.
And, in fact, if anything the [national security adviser] asking for identities was a reflection of exactly how much traffic there was involving Trump people and foreign players. The White House blasting the press for not reporting on another fake scandal being peddled by right-wing media.”
CNN’s Don Lemon:
“So let us be very clear about this, there is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was surveilled or spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the President’s original claim and on this program tonight we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people by creating a diversion. Not gonna do it.”
