Media ‘working backward’ to prove Russiagate narrative – Ben Swann

The New York Times has had to correct its recent “bombshell” report on President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort. They’d claimed that Manafort had shared polling data with a “Kremlin-linked oligarch,” RT America’s Rachel Blevins reports. Then investigative journalist Ben Swann joins News.Views.Hughes to weigh in, arguing that there are “no repercussions” for anonymous sources, increasingly used in recent times, when their information is false.

Everything against Trump in the médias is fake news.

Anonymous source also may mean that there really is no source.

The only times i've noticed any propaganda from RT is when they talk about 'the wall,' and sometimes when RT talks about Russia specifically, but that should be expected of any state news agency. RT is by far the best mainstream news organisation I'm aware of.

Ever heard of the “Project Integrity,” a UK-funded intelligence operation “ set up to misinform, deliberate purposeful false negative narratives against anyone & countries not supporting war against Russia, China and Iran etc….

Yes, we can turn away from false msm news and rely on more credible alternate news sources, which is why the msm demonizes those alternate news sources.

That's like trying to prove Obama is a citizen of the USA. It will never happen.

As people begin to question the MSM they are turning to just as fake sources of "news and facts." Groups like Qanon are making their nitch in the market because of mistrust.

There is no doubt in my mind. Putin own Donald trump. Putin is intelligent. Trump is stupid and greedy. Besides it's trump's Soviet wives. With all his money why did he end up with Soviet gold diggers instead of american gold diggers? Trump is bought and paid for.

It's all about putting out the narrative. They know it is false, but it's still effective because they were so successful in getting millions of people to despise Trump and his supporters from the start. These fake stories don't matter to the people who just want to see Trump and his supporters die.

Why use an anonymous source when credible ones are so readily available?

The most popular religion there for now appears to be the United church of anti Trumpism & anti Russia & they're working hard to spread the message. It's not easy to know who's their god but they're missionaries working for their faith.

Everyone colludes during election time. All it takes is one silly viral meme on social media from anyone in the world and suddenly 1 million people in the US vote with feelings rather than reason.

I got called a Russian agent last time I debated a brainwashed idiot on this topic. Just another stripe to be worn with pride.

People are finally catching on to the Mockingbird Media. Funny independent people on youtube can do better investigative journalism than a multi million dollar news network.

A Russian funded news station says Russia is innocent?! Wow never would have guessed that.
