Default Trump cleared? Media Bias

This is #fakenews at its best

Title of the CNBC article: Special counsel Mueller: Russians conducted 'information warfare' against US during election to help Donald Trump win

Look specifically at what is in quotes and what is not. Now within the same article:

"Rosenstein said there is no allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant in the scheme, nor is there any allegation that the scheme affected the outcome of the election."

They know their low information readers don't get past the title of a news article. Idiots.

This has to be a huge letdown for the media. I'm sure they will find a way to spin it to discredit the administration.

Sounds like all they really uncovered from all this was the collusion and corruption in the Hillary campaign, DOJ, FBI etc...

They did, that's the point of the post. The author specifically stated in the title to help Trump win. Then in the contents of the article the Deputy AG who is no friend of Trump states that there was no allegation that it influenced our election in anyway and that they did it against both Trump and Clinton.

Yea, it wouldn't matter if they came out and said Trump had nothing to do with it and Clinton had a secret meeting with Putin on the tarmac so she could get some dirt on Trump, the left would spin it somehow. Going to tape Morning Joe tomorrow and see how he spins it.

"While Trump was not involved with the Russians Election tampering, He liked Rocky and Bullwinkle as a child and is reported to have had an infatuation with Natasha. This complicity in itself places him directly responsible."

Unfortunately it won't matter. The media and left will just fabricate another story and the low information voters will follow along.

Why are you calling it #fakenews if it clears Trump?

Are you saying Trump is guilty?

I just heard the Russians were promoting demonstrations for Trump but at the same time were promoting anti Trump demonstrations in the same city on the same day. All of this was just to cast doubt of the American people on the media and politics and in general just trying to send the US into chaos. And now we have 2 parties that can't get anything done. I would call their mission a success.

I believe the inference is that the msm covers and exaggerates allegations against Trump but when he is cleared, they fail to actually say that forthrightly.

Do any of you think for one minute that IF the special council and in particular Muller had any real evidence of anyone on the Right having done anything wrong, they'd be releasing it on a Friday afternoon during the middle of a giant news story that is already consuming all news feeds (AKA Florida School Shooting)??? Heck no, they'd sit on it until the proper news cycle could give it maximum effect and coverage... What all this says is THEY GOT NUTHIN! Heck, the allegations of what these "Russians" did is a perfect description of what EVERY SINGLE PERSON and ENTITY in the Hitlery campaign did every day... They tried to affect the election to go in her favor... and they disparaged Trump...

I think it is funny that they seem to think that everyone turned against Hillary after these guys did their thing. My dislike of her goes back to the early 80's.

Could it be possible the Russians rented server space from the same company that hosted Hilliary's illegal email servers?

And now President Trump should hold a press conference on Monday, President's Day and announce that he is closing the Special Council's investigation because it was announced today, that no American was involved in collusion.

Wonder when the investigation into Commie Bernie Sanders starts? Seems to me he's the one who stood to benefit from the Russians interfering with the 2 lead candidates.

Im pretty sure the CIA has done far worse in foreign countries to influence politics. Buying online advertising from Facebook, etc. PFFFFF......

Only the left and the Trump haters will continue pushing this crap.
