Many Are Calling For The Media To Be Held Legally Accountable For Relentlessly Lying To The American People About Russian Collusion

Do you LOVE America?

    Now that the Mueller investigation is over and his report has shown that there was absolutely no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, the focus is rapidly turning to those that endlessly propagated extremely damaging conspiracy theories about the president of the United States.  For 675 days, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC engaged in a fake news binge unlike anything that we have ever seen before in all of U.S. history.  They relentlessly pushed out news story after news story touting that we would soon have “evidence” that Trump had colluded with the Russians when there was no evidence at all.  They kept telling us that “indictments are coming”, that “the noose is tightening” and that “the walls are closing in on this administration” when none of that was ever true.  The entire Russian collusion narrative was a piece of fiction created by Hillary Clinton’s campaign team to explain her shocking election loss, but once it was embraced by the mainstream media and pro-Clinton members of federal law enforcement agencies it quickly snowballed out of control.  Now the time has come for the mainstream media to be held accountable for lying to the American people on a massive scale, and later in this article I will explain how this can be done.

    And I am certainly not the only one calling for the mainstream media to be held accountable.  Other prominent conservative voices are also calling for accountability

    Donald Trump Jr lamented “more than two years of non-stop conspiracy theories from CNN, MSNBC, BuzzFeed and the rest of the mainstream media” and added: “It’s my hope that honest journalists within the media have the courage to hold these now fully debunked truthers accountable and treat them with the scorn and ridicule that they so deserve.”

    Sean Hannity, a Fox News host in frequent contact with the president, was quick to assist. He issued a series of ominous warnings, variously concerning conspiracy theories, lies and attempts to rig elections.

    “CNN, MSNBC, and the mainstream media have lied to the the [sic] American [sic] for [two] plus years,” Hannity said in a tweet. “Now they will be held accountable.” Another post took a cavalier approach to punctuation: “MSNBC CONSPIRACY NETWORK LIARS FAKE NEWS CNN LIARS NY TIMES WAPO LIARS.”

    We are talking about a mountain of lies that is absolutely colossal.  According to Axios, more than half a million articles were pumped out by the mainstream media over the course of the Mueller investigation…

    Since May 2017, 533,074 web articles have been published about Russia and Trump/Mueller, generating 245 million interactions — including likes, comments and shares — on Twitter and Facebook, according to data from social-media analytics company NewsWhip.

    The reason why tens of millions of Americans expected President Trump to be impeached was because it had been pounded into their heads day after day after day.

    But it was a complete and utter lie the entire time.

    Anyone with half a brain could see very early in the investigation that there was nothing there.  When I ran for Congress, I told the entire state of Idaho during a televised debate that the Mueller investigation was nothing more than a witch hunt and that it should be immediately shut down.  But of course that didn’t happen, and Robert Mueller spent 675 days turning over every rock that he possibly could, and after all that time he never found any evidence of collusion with Russia.

    Sadly, the lack of evidence didn’t stop the mainstream news networks from relentlessly pounding on this story night after night

    From January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) through March 21, 2019 (the last night before special counsel Robert Mueller sent his report to the Attorney General), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts produced a combined 2,284 minutes of “collusion” coverage, most of it (1,909 minutes) following Mueller’s appointment on May 17, 2017.

    That’s an average of roughly three minutes a night, every night, for an astonishing 791 days — a level of coverage normally associated only with a major war or a presidential election. In fact, TV reporters devoted more airtime to the Russia investigation than any of the Trump administration’s policy initiatives — immigration, tax reform, trade, North Korea, ISIS, the economy, veterans’ affairs, the opioid epidemic, to name but a few. Since his presidency began, nearly one-fifth (18.8%) of all of Trump’s evening news coverage has been about this one investigation.

    Clearly the mainstream media has greatly wronged the American people.

    So what can be done?

    Well, President Trump himself once suggested a potential remedy

    “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Trump, a Republican, wrote in a post on Twitter on Wednesday.

    In this day and age when everyone is so concerned about “fake news”, why can’t we challenge the broadcast licenses of all the big mainstream news networks?

    After all, they all willingly participated in propagating the biggest fake news hoax in all of U.S. history even after it became exceedingly clear that it was a giant sham.

    Even former members of the mainstream media are declaring that it is time for some serious accountability.  For example, in his latest Reality Check Ben Swann absolutely ripped his former colleagues in the mainstream media to shreds.

    And one of the biggest names in the mainstream media, Matt Taibbi, says that the “sheer scale of the errors and exaggerations this time around” absolutely dwarfs the lies that were told about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq…

    As a purely journalistic failure, however, WMD was a pimple compared to Russiagate. The sheer scale of the errors and exaggerations this time around dwarfs the last mess. Worse, it’s led to most journalists accepting a radical change in mission. We’ve become sides-choosers, obliterating the concept of the press as an independent institution whose primary role is sorting fact and fiction.

    We had the sense to eventually look inward a little in the WMD affair, which is the only reason we escaped that episode with any audience left. Is the press even capable of that kind of self-awareness now? WMD damaged our reputation. If we don’t turn things around, this story will destroy it.

    The mainstream media certainly deserves to collapse, and nobody should mourn them when they are gone.

    Once upon a time in America, the news media consisted of highly trained journalists that tried really hard to stick to the facts.

    But now it is filled with political hacks that don’t even try to hide their hatred for President Trump and Republicans.

    A “media revolution” is just one of the areas we need to tackle if we are to have any hope of ever turning this country around.  If we want to be a nation of integrity, those that have greatly violated our trust must be held accountable.

    One of the things that I greatly appreciate about President Trump is that he is the first president in modern American history to stand up and call the mainstream media a bunch of liars.

    Because that is precisely what they are, and America would be a much better place if all of the big media companies were to go out of business.

      1. Buahhahahahahah….

        Like this will go anywhere.

        • @john stiner…

          I beg to differ.

          If you attempt to kill the King…you had best succeed or your own life is worthless !!

          They ALL should have stopped the nonsense long ago.

          Now they are most definately in serious jeopardy !

      2. The First Amendment guarantees “Freedom of Speech”. Being a “Public Figure” Trump cannot sue for liable. However, it seems that many felonies were committed by Obozo and his cabal, so like the chant goes, Lock Them Up!-Lock Them Up!- Lock Them Up!

        I’ve been waiting for the Clintons to get caught for a Loooooong time!

        • When a lower than B rated actor, with a tad of notoriety, can lay a felonious paper trail that could be clearly read visually or in braille, can have charges dropped when everyone, including the prosecutor who dropped charges doubted his innocence, all because his status of being a gay minority and having “appropriate” political views then the Clintons with their enormous backing are absolutely untouchable.

          I’ve been waiting too and unfortunately in these times of abandonment of the rule of law being the norm we’ll just keep on waiting. Equal protection under the law implies equal enforcement of the law; it’s the most bullshit of bullshit. If ever there is another “Declaration Of Independence” written as the original with grievances, one would be, “They have chosen to not enforced law in accordance to guilt but rather to protect those they wish”.

          • Kevin2, I agree with your analysis about Smollett but I believe an extra reason the charges were dropped was to keep Black Lives Matter from rioting. Chicago also has a black female prosecutor that refuses to prosecute any black people for any serious crimes. Another supporter of black crime. Rumor has it that the prosecutor is at least a sympathizer or a member of Black Lives Matter. That wouldn’t surprise me at all. They’re just a criminal enterprise just like all other black organizations.

          • Some people have always been more equal than others. Money is the difference.

      3. The only thing that will save this nation is the complete exposure and obliteration of the treasonous socialists,communists, and globalists. But that would also create a power vacuum which, in all probability will lead to the next Ceasar….. That’s what happens when republics fall. It’s coming anyway. Our nation is in tatters, fed by lies and greed. America will not survive this because the next generation is FILLED with illiterate morons and the enemy is within the gates. Heaven help us.

      4. Why are you blaming too-big-to-fails with no free agency.

      5. 325 million people in the USA and 162.5 million swallowed the story hook line and sinker.

        Just goes to show that there really IS one born every minute.

        “You CAN fool half of the people ALL the time”


      6. Much ado about nothing. The fix was in with Mueller all along who was named to head the FBI a week before the 9-11 event. The American people continue to be played as suckers believing any words out of the liars mouths.

      7. Nobody believes the press anymore,newspapers included. They have lost the trust of most people and this present hoax on Trump reinforces that. TV ratings have gone down and newspaper sales have collapsed. Just desserts!

      8. If a large portion of the ‘Merican population would just pass by the news media “barkers” and pay no attention then they would whither on the vine. It is just sooooo e-a-s-y.

      9. Pay not attention to the little man behind the curtain and his balloon won’t sail. Its that easy.

      10. One wonders whether the House would have flipped at the midterms if the Mueller report had been released last October and if it was deliberately delayed until now for that reason.

      11. As I recall when I took my Radiotelephone operators permit test at the FCC, the Communications act of 1934 prohibits “false or superfluous” transmissions. For example you can’t get on a broadcast frequency and start yelling “Mayday”. I think this would apply just as much to the network’s owned broadcast stations. The FCC can easily revoke licenses; do it all the time.
        And the cable nets like CNN all have FCC licensed satellite equipment that can be yanked.

        • The MSM couched their stories with “if true” statements so they would likely dodge the licensing issue. However, it’s much like the fine print thing where people don’t actually read it. (I’ve annoyed more than one office by actually reading the fine print and asking questions.)

      12. Perhaps now the American people will learn what the rest of the world has known for years. (I’m Australian who volunteered for the army while we after our government used the same lies as you were told!)

      13. Liberal newsman Molester Holt tried so hard to interview James Comey and found out that they had nothing to talk about. In the way of the great Trump conspiracy. When will liberals finally understand that they are stupid. I guess never. When will the Molester realize that nobody cares what liberals think. Oh thats right, that noise you hear is their brain rolling around. Like a bee bee in a box car. Theres really nothing there.

      14. Revoke their broadcasting FCC Charter.

      15. A small number of Jewish bankers own the mass media. You know who are lying now.

      16. Did anybody catch the last line? “Let’s talk about it on social media…if we still can.”
        Hilarious… 🙂

      17. So the federal government will be the arbitrator of truth. The same federal government that brought us the Warren Commission Report, The 9/11 Commission Report, WMDs, Waco, Ruby Ridge and the list goes on.

        What is it about a “design to reduce us under absolute Despotism” that we don’t understand?

      18. Yes, it is time to see some real justice. Pull the licenses & shut them fown. Two years of every newscast withh giddy reports of more evidence found of collusion. First story every news report. Just propaganda to change public opinion. Zero truth. It has to end.

      19. if you meet some of the media people in the streets hold them accountable yourself

      20. Not so fast. This just in from Fox News.

        A Fox News legal analyst has warned viewers today Robert Mueller’s report undoubtedly contains evidence of collusion with Russia and an attempt by Donald Trump to obstruct justice.

      21. Trump may not have colluded with Russia (or maybe AG Barr is covering it up) but either way the possibility of obstruction of justice is still looming over him.

        They’re all crooked and corrupt. You can’t get elected, I mean selected, unless you are corrupt.

      22. This is also been ongoing acts of Treason to overthrow a lawfully elected president. We the People, made it very clear that we refused to accept the installing of Hillary the Evil as the next POTUS. President Trump has been under constant non-stop attack since the day he made his announcement to run for office. The media people need to be held to account for their lying to us.
        Perhaps it is time to invite some to be the involuntary guest of honor at a neck tie social. I’ve got more respect for lawyers than I do those people

        Lefties, who have a clue and an IQ above room temp, ought to be working their asses off to PRVENT a civil war. There will be no rules of engagement if war does happen.

        • Now that this effort has been thwarted, look for even higher stake games to commence.

      23. I didn’t need $35 million plus to determine of Trump is colluding with a foreign nation.
        Trump is colluding with Israel. That is my report.
        Charge: $100.00
        Consider this . .. the Dual-citizen Jews in Congress & ACLU etc block Our wall …. and Trump doesn’t have the testicles to say Our Embassy STAYS PUT, You do not get the Golan Heights, give them back to Syria, Treat the Palestinians FAIR, and no more WELFARE to Israel, it all goes to the Palestinians …… no, PUSSY BITCH Trump just gives them everything they ever wanted and WE DO NOT GET A WALL even though WE PAY for theirs . …. yes, DUMP Trump.


        These words were spoken by one of the two men who saved America’s proverbial ass recently, without the knowledge of most Americans, and also received FULL military honors at his funeral late last year.
        For someone not recognized by the world as any military type person, to receive such high honors, warrants some investigation.

        Well, WADDYAKNOW?

        America finally came out of International Bankruptcy in 1999 (being the last of THREE, and a National Security issue), AND, the so called ‘Media’ around the world have known of these two men for many, many years, yet are involved in a ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ by constantly manipulating their words, misquoting their interviews, and thereby complicit in the beating of one of the men within inches of his life, whilst saving America’s butt.

        When, of when, Dear Father in Heaven, will the ENTIRE Media quit, ‘en masse’, and put us all at Evens, instead of Odds?
