The Media’s Shameful Refusal To Report On Putin’s Ties To The American Left

Since last November, Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media have obsessively shifted blame for their improbable election loss to Russia, pointing to Russia’s suspected role in leaking hacked Democratic National Committee emails to Wikileaks.

While the delightful irony of the Left morphing into anti-Russia hawks shouldn’t escape those of us who spent decades resisting appeasement of the Soviet Union, we shouldn’t outright dismiss Russia’s interest in influencing U.S. policy, either. Of course, had Russia not been implicated in the DNC hacks, the American Left would have continued its neo-appeasement policy, best exemplified by President Obama’s 2012 hot mic moment when he instructed outgoing president Dmitry Medvedev to relay to incoming President Putin that Obama would have “more flexibility” after his reelection.

    I think we need to find a more appropriate name for them, because they sure as hell are not the media. The best I’ve heard to date is the Media Party, and just as it exists in Canada it also does in the United States. There is no relation whatsoever with true media or free press.

    The media might hush it up, but the Democrats are quite well aware of it and fear exposure by means other than the mainstream media. That is why they abruptly canceled the circus of public testimony before Congress by Trump, Jr., Kushner and Manafort. They would be throwing stones from their glass house.
