BATTLEFORWORLD – February 17, 2017: Reporting based on precious little substance articles is all what the breathless Trump-bashing is about, sensationalizing news concerning his team and the Russian government.
New York Times Spreading Recycled Russian Propaganda Against Trump
NYPOST – February 17, 2017: Hostile, hysterical reporting based on anonymous leaks provides no hard facts — just “narratives” that could come out of a creative writing class.
Take Wednesday’s breathless New York Times story, “Trump Aides Had Contact With Russian Intelligence” — which was remarkable for containing the same facts the Times reported back in October as “Investigating Donald Trump, FBI Sees No Clear Link to Russia.”
Both reports say various Trumpites talked to figures in Russia’s government — but that US investigators found nothing to show they’d discussed the US election, or that anyone on Team Trump was even aware of any effort by Moscow to influence it.
How many times can the Times recycle the same stuff and still call it news?
Note, too, that one of the reporters on all these stories is our old pal Matt Apuzzo — who is presumably working the same highly dubious FBI sources he used back in 2011 when he was with the Associated Press, in his error-riddled series of smears of the NYPD’s Intelligence Division.
