Media deep in the mud on the Don Trump-Russia question

From Derek Hunter at Townhall, on the Don Trump Jr. Russia connection:

What Don Jr. did was unseemly, but it wasn’t illegal. Although the left-wing media scrambles to turn a meeting into the Rosenbergs, conservative media wants you to believe it’s a witch-hunt.

Don Jr. is no monster, nor is he a martyr. He’s just a political novice trying to help his dad.

Ignorance is no excuse, Don Jr. is a grown man, but support for your father is no vice either. For all the pearl-clutching on CNN and MSNBC over the meeting, there isn’t a liberal campaign inner-circle member who wouldn’t meet with anyone promising dirt.M ore.

Reality check: In a world that features ISIS and North Korea, the pitiful blather about young Trump’s useless meeting with the Russians tells us all we need to know about why mainstream media are on the skids. People who pay any serious attention know there are bigger issues.

    What he did was “unseemly”? Compared to wiretapping Trump’s team or what every political party does in trying to find any dirt on the opposition or compared to what exactly would make it “unseemly”? Qualifying the whole thing as a witch hunt is not a stretch of the imagination either, when evidence of connects and long ties that the Russian lawyer had with the Democrat Party exist, or even that it was under the Obama administration that she was granted entry without the required visa at the time. So no, there is no overreaction by conservatives, which is why I find the attempted moral equivalence of Hunter disgusting.

    clinton sells 20% of the US uranium supply to russia and takes in millions, crickets. President Trump does nothing vis a vis the russians and the slime stream media with the support of many ostensible “conservatives” harass him mercilessly. It’s getting harder and harder for me to wrap my head around the colossal hypocrisy going on here.

      You are looking in the wrong place, hypocrisy. This is pure propaganda, so don’t waste time trying to figure it out.
