Washington Post Profile Of Fusion GPS Downplays Firm’s Shady Russian Connections

Did the Washington Post omit significant information about the people behind both the Russian dossier and the Clinton campaign’s opposition research?

Monday the Washington Post profiled Fusion GPS, the Washington DC-based communications shop that assembled and distributed the “dossier” alleging that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. The longish Post feature on the firm founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson is what savvy media folks call a “deep dig”—the Post calls it “a review.” It burrows into a number of the outfit’s other projects, like publicizing the domestic disputes involving a former mayor of Beverly Hills, and digging up dirt on a competitor of a San Francisco museum proposed by “Star Wars” director George Lucas.

The Post lets on that it’s not pulling any punches.
