NBC opium dreams:

"This is a deep problem for the White House!

Three former Trump campaign key persons have been indicted.

One of them is cooperating with the FBI..."

Lots of fuss but nothing in concrete of a Russian collusion.

Having US people (officials and non officials) talking with Russian officials talking trash about Hillary Clinton is not a reason to called it "a crime".

What the hell?

Former French president called president of Israel "a liar" in front of everybody, no crimes.

Attempts to interfere with an election process is food for a crime, but talking crap about Hillary Clinton, Ciceron or Setanta is not a crime, it is just talking.

Now well, the indictments are none for Russian collision, and even when Manifort was known to be a corrupt dude, in politics all politicians are corrupt.

NBC and CNN are making good profit spreading false hope to fanatic liberals. This is a similar mischievous way to get fame and brainwash people's minds by these news media.

It reminds me the miserable relativists whom for many years fed with false illusions of "time traveling thanks to relativity" in order to make the theory credible at the cost of bringing false hope to the victims of WW2. What an abuse!

Dudes, NBC and CNN are pulling your legs manipulating the news.

What is going on is that Manifort was found of doing wrong business by his own in the past, a discovery made thanks to the investigation. That's all.

Suppressing major news stories for a political party.

http://thehill.com/homenews/media/358589-network-newscasts-dont-mention-brazile-clinton-dnc-revelations

—————————

The broadcast evening newscasts on three major networks on Thursday didn't mention bombshell revelations by former Democratic National Committee interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile.

Brazile has written in a new book that she discovered evidence that she said showed Hillary Clinton’s campaign "rigged" the Democratic presidential primary.

"ABC's World News Tonight," "NBC Nightly News" and "CBS Evening News" all didn't report the allegations by Brazile on Thursday evening despite it receiving considerable coverage on cable news and in print and online media. Brazile was also trending as one of Twitter's top topics on Thursday.


In excerpts released to Politico Thursday, Brazile writes in her new book, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House," that it “broke [her] heart” upon discovering evidence that she said showed the Clinton campaign "rigged" the Democratic nomination system.

“By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,” Brazile wrote about a Sept. 7, 2016, call to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who gave Clinton a far more serious challenge for the nomination than many had expected.

@Lash,
Probably because they aren't 'bombshells' or even really new news. This was all known for many, many months.

@Cycloptichorn,
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/edblog/donna-brazile-needs-to-back-up-her-self-serving-claims

Josh Marshall is reporting today the Brazille seems to be flat-out wrong in what she's claiming. There doesn't seem to be anything in the agreements that resembles what she (or more accurately, her publicist) says.

But, don't let that get in the way of your regularly scheduled opprobrium

Edit: Brazille herself is now trying to walk this back via Twitter

@Cycloptichorn,
Nor, what was done is historically uncommon within either party.

“Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as "the truth" exists. […] The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past. If the Leader says of such and such an event, "It never happened"—well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five—well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs […]”

Fake news, viral on the mega-powerful global social platforms.

https://theintercept.com/2017/11/05/four-viral-claims-spread-by-journalists-on-twitter-in-the-last-week-alone-that-are-false/

There is ample talk, particularly of late, about the threats posed by social media to democracy and political discourse. Yet one of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus can never be adequately corrected.

The design of Twitter, where many political journalists spend their time, is in large part responsible for this damage. Its space constraints mean that tweeted headlines or tiny summaries of reporting are often assumed to be true with no critical analysis of their accuracy, and are easily spread. Claims from journalists that people want to believe are shared like wildfire, while less popular, subsequent corrections or nuanced debunking are easily ignored. Whatever one’s views are on the actual impact of Twitter Russian bots, surely the propensity of journalistic falsehoods to spread far and wide is at least as significant.

Just in the last week alone, there have been four major factually false claims that have gone viral because journalists on Twitter endorsed and spread them: three about the controversy involving Donna Brazile and the DNC, and one about documents and emails published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. It’s well worth examining them, both to document what the actual truth is as well as to understand how often and easily this online journalistic misleading occurs:

Viral Falsehood #1: The Clinton/DNC agreement cited by Brazile only applied to the General Election, not the primary.

On Wednesday, Politico published a blockbuster accusation from Donna Brazile’s new book: that the DNC had “rigged” the 2016 primary election for Hillary Clinton through an agreement that gave Clinton control over key aspects of the DNC, a claim that Elizabeth Warren endorsed on CNN. The Clinton camp refused to comment publicly, but instead contacted their favorite reporters to publish their response as news.

The following day, NBC published an article by Alex Seitz-Wald that recited and endorsed the Clinton camp’s primary defense: that Brazile was wrong because the agreement in question (a copy of which they provided to Seitz-Wald) applied “only to preparations for the general election,” and had nothing to do with the primary season. That defense, if true, would be fatal to Brazile’s claims, and so DNC-loyal journalists all over Twitter instantly declared it to be true, thus pronouncing Brazile’s accusation to have been fully debunked. This post documents how quickly this claim was endorsed on Twitter by journalists and Democratic operatives, and how far and wide it therefore spread.

The problem with this claim is that it is blatantly and obviously false. All one has to do to know this is read the agreement. Unlike the journalists spreading this DNC defense, Campaign Legal Defense’s Brendan Fischer bothered to read it, and immediately saw, and documented, how obviously false this claim is:
