Sean Hannity: Alt-left media killed journalism in quest to bury Trump

The alt-left propaganda media is running wild with conspiracy theories

 

NBC may have hit a new low by releasing the president's tax returns, but what we're seeing from the alt-left, propaganda-pushing, destroy-Donald-Trump-media is nothing new.

With President Trump in the Oval Office, the opposition-party press is going to new extremes and lows to take down his presidency, and they won't stop until he's out. I told my television audience in 2008 that journalism was dead. Now it's been embalmed and buried and flowers are growing on its grave. Consider this recent hit job by NBC.

"Here you have a deranged president, or a pathologically lying president, lying about the operations of the American government and lying about the previous president of the United States,” said an MSNBC host named Lawrence O’Donnell on March 7. “That's enough to invoke the 25th Amendment, but Mike Pence and the Cabinet are not there yet.”

His colleague, Chris Matthews, infamously compared Trump to Hitler after the president’s inspired inauguration speech. On March 10, Mika Brzezinski told her audience, “this man is lying to you.” And finally, Brian Williams, who is back from the time out NBC gave him for stealing valor with made-up stories, got in on the act, too.

“Trump's critics, those who are worried about this president and this White House, saw a live special television event brought to you by narcissism, thin skin, chaos and deeply personal grievances,” he said back in February.

CNN is infested with deceitful, fake news Trump bashers, too. It is beyond awful. When the alt-left propaganda media isn't attacking the integrity and mental health of the president, they're running wild with all kinds of bizarre conspiracy theories about the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians. They don’t care that there is no evidence whatsoever that shows any kind of collusion.

The grand dame of the alt-left propaganda media, Rachel Maddow, went off the deep end this week in the midst of her spectacular Trump tax return fail. She claimed that a 2005 transaction with a Russian oligarch proves Trump is a White House plant put in place by the Kremlin. At least, I think that’s what she meant.

To follow Maddow’s nimble thought process, one must believe the oligarch knew that Donald Trump was going to be president, bought a property from him in Florida for which Trump made a huge profit, all so the future president would be at Russia’s disposal more than a decade later. If that’s the case, NBC should hire the Russian to be its pollster, because the Peacock network thought Trump as president was impossible right up until its anchors had to grudgingly call the election for him.

Two accomplished journalists at Circa News, Sara Carter and John Solomon have thoroughly and convincingly debunked the Russian conspiracy theory. Last week, they reported that the FBI has found no evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians, affirming what President Obama’s director of national intelligence, James Clapper, had said.

Now, they have taken their investigation further with a story headlined "Hillary Clinton supporter pushed Trump-Russia computer narrative investigated by FBI."

According to the report, computer scientist and Indiana University professor L. Jean Camp pushed the theory to the left-wing media that a computer server connected to Donald Trump was communicating with a Russian bank. The FBI did, in fact, look into it, according to Circa News. They found nothing to indicate collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Who is L. Jean Camp? Well, she donated $2,200 to Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She's also donated over $10,000 to Democratic groups and candidates since 2004, including the radical group Moveon.org. On social media, she pushed the Trump-Russia conspiracy connection and talked about joining the "resistance."

Circa News reached out to Camp, who said her actions regarding the server were not politically motivated. Sure.

Earlier, I said journalism was dead and buried. But Carter and Solomon prove it is at least on life support.
