Former CBS News reporter Lara Logan is disgusted by the media’s intentional gaslighting of the public to persuade viewers that Robert Mueller’s tangential indictments of people like Paul Manafort had anything to do with “Russian collusion.”
Logan told Fox & Friends: “If charges had been brought against the president, the headlines would all be screaming, ‘Victory for the left! Vindication. This proves that what the left has been saying is right’.
“Now, no charges have been brought, but I don’t see screaming headlines that say this vindicates the president.”
Reminder: There Were ZERO Indictments For Russian Collusion
“You keep seeing featured prominently in many articles this line that ‘six members of the Trump campaign have been indicted’ by the Mueller investigation.
But you don’t read in the same space that…none of them were charged with conspiring with Russia — the central question of the Mueller investigation. That always comes way, way, way down further in the reporting.
That’s a very simple fix if you’re really trying to be objective. You can say six people were charged, but none of those charges had anything to do with conspiring with Russia. And then that doesn’t mislead the reader or the viewer because it’s very clear what people were charged with.
As a journalist, I find it disappointing that people will create one impression with their reporting, correct it later, and then claim that they’ve been honest and objective.”
Lara Logan: Media Are 85% Democrats
Lara Logan is correct: The mainstream media — which is overwhelmingly left-wing — have repeatedly tried to brainwash the public into thinking that Mueller’s indictments had anything to do with Trump-Russia collusion.
As BizPac Review has reported, Paul Manafort was indicted for tax evasion and money-laundering for business activities he engaged in between 2006 and 2014.
Manafort did not join the Trump campaign until April 2016 — and was fired five months later — in August 2016. Just so we’re clear: Robert Mueller has not indicted anyone for “Russian collusion.” Period.
Logan: The Media Are ‘Political Activists and Propagandists’
This constant, intentional promoting of anti-Trump fake news isn’t surprising to Lara Logan or millions of Americans.
Logan — a former correspondent for 60 Minutes — says the media in both the United States and around the world are liberal, and the American media are “85% registered Democrats.”
Rather than objectively report facts, Logan says today’s media have devolved into leftist “propagandists and political activists” masquerading as journalists.
“The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just in the U.S. In this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. That’s just a fact.
All the coverage on Trump all the time is negative. Although the media has always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense or at least the effort to be objective today.”
