Fake News: NBC News Botches Russiagate ‘Bombshell’



By: John Nolte
11 Sep 2017

The suits at NBC News are, no doubt, lighting candles in gratitude to Gaia for Harvey and Irma, two natural disasters that distracted the country and, by extension, saved the left-wing outlet from the kind of scrutiny and fake news humiliation that has rocked CNN and dropped it into last place behind MSNBC.

Naturally, what I am referencing here is yet another massive pile of fake news connected to this laughably stupid Russiagate scandal.

The August 31 NBC News headline was a BOOM, a smoking gun, a game changer: “Manafort Notes From Russian Meet Contain Cryptic Reference to ‘Donations.’”

Whoa.

The story went on to breathlessly lay it all out:

Paul Manafort’s notes from a controversial Trump Tower meeting with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign included the word “donations,” near a reference to the Republican National Committee, two sources briefed on the evidence told NBC News.

The references, which were not previously disclosed, elevated the significance of the June 2016 meeting for congressional investigators, who are focused on determining whether it included any discussion of donations from Russian sources to either the Trump campaign or the Republican Party.

It is illegal for foreigners to donate to American elections. The meeting happened just as Trump had secured the Republican nomination for president, and he was considered a longshot to win. Manafort was the campaign chairman at the time.

Holy schmikoly! This is it! We got him! That whole Donald Trump Junior meeting is blown wide open! We hold the thread that unravels the sweater…Donations from the Russians! Yes! Yes! Yes! High-Five! On the side! Down low! Here we go! This is me doing the Impeachment Hustle.

Great job, NBC News!

Except…

Not a word of it is true.
But as we are all learning, in the craven world of journalism today, a couple of anonymous sources are currently good enough to drop a stinkbomb–because this is not about journalism, this is not about the truth, and this is not about holding power accountable.

About four hours after the original story ran, NBC News added the following correction. Naturally, the correction, which completely blows the original story to pieces (everyone knows there was a “donor” at the meeting), is buried at the bottom:

Ah.. what's the matter liberals, did NBC finally have the ''bombshell'' news linking Trump for impeachable wrongdoing, only to find out it didn't happen?

How I feel your pain and your disappointment!

Gee Greg, just like Newspapers hire "Stringers" to contribute to their Newspapers, Maybe CNN will hire you to be one of their Cheer Leaders on the Internet (if you are not already being paid to carry their water!)  Diversionary Tactics 101:  "Squirrel"! Smiley

C-mon now Greggy, .. either Mueller gets the criminal evidence against Trump directly, for him to be removed from office, OR NBC and the rest of the CORRUPT liberal news media can just STFU!   Grin

Not in the least! -- I think it's funny,  Grin Grin because, try as the CORRUPT liberal news media networks have been working 24/7 to destroy Trump's Presidency, and make it look like he engaged in criminal misconduct with the Russians to beat Hillary in last November's election, there's not an ounce of evidence that implicates him.  Grin

On the other-hand, .. we KNOW that Hillary Clinton DID break the law and gave false testimony to the FBI, and she illegally DESTROYED material evidence against her that had been subpoenaed.  Grin
