Just Wow: Look At The Dangerous Crap The Right-Wing Media Is Promoting Now
As the Russia investigation moves closer to Donald Trump’s inner circle, the right-wing media have worked overtime to delegitimize special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller was appointed as special counsel on May 17. Since then, conservative commentators have repeatedly called the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election a “witch hunt.”
“Conservative news hosts, primarily on Fox News, are aiding a White House ‘cover-up’ by helping members of the Trump administration conceal alleged crimes under investigation by Mueller, said legendary journalist Carl Bernstein, one of two reporters who exposed President Richard Nixon’s involvement in the Watergate scandal.
“These commentators are not open in any way to the best obtainable version of the truth, to facts, context, who seem to be oblivious to the serial lying of the president of the United States and members of his family and staff—they are abetting a cover-up,” Bernstein told CNN in a recent interview.
Now, in a blatant, irresponsible and desperate attempt to shut down the investigation, the right-wing media has come up with the mother of all conspiracy theories by claiming the Mueller’s investigation is “a coup against Donald Trump.”
