Skip to comments.NBC News is a Gigantic Dumpster Fire, and the Deep State Cabal Loves it

Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this Winning yet? The ADP estimate on private sector jobs additions for April came in at 204,000, beating estimates that it would tally 190,000. The Trump economy just keeps humming along.
NBC News is just a gigantic dumpster fire these days, but then you already knew that. In addition to all the sexual harassment allegations hovering around its icon Tom Brokaw, NBCs fake news division suffered yet another huge embarrassment by reporting a story that was so, so, so fake that even Special Counsel Robert Mueller apparently insisted they go back and correct it. That, friends, is seriously fake news.
Around noon, MSNBC NBCs aggressively-fake news affiliate reported that Muellers office has been wire-tapping the phone calls of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whom the Special Counsel Gestapo had already subjected to jack-booted thug raids on his home, office and hotel room in early April. NBC breathlessly reported all afternoon that the intercepted phone calls from Cohen included gasp! one to the White House. The White House immediately questioned the story, given that any such wiretap would clearly be illegal unless the SC had obtained a warrant from a federal judge, and Rudy Giuliani even predicted on Fox News mid-afternoon that the story would turn out to be fake.
But NBC clung to its fake reporting for about four and a half hours until, at about 4:30, the weaselly Chuck Todd was forced to admit that, in fact, Cohens phones had not been tapped, which would mean that the Mueller Gestapo had been able to actually listen in to his conversations. The truth as far as the Mueller team is capable of speaking the truth, anyway is that Cohens phone activity has been monitored by what is known as a pen register, which simply allows the feds to note the phone numbers he is calling. This massive intrusion into a U.S. citizens privacy apparently requires no warrant.
This incident, of course, is just one of dozens of such instances we have seen over the last 16 months, in which some national fake news outlet reports some explosive BREAKING NEWS!!!! that, if true, would be damaging to President Trump or someone around him, is allowed to linger in the public space for hours, often days, and then is forced to be retracted by the reporting fake news entity.
Hey, remember all those similar incidents that took place during the 8 years of Barack Obama? No? Neither do I. Because this pretty much never happened during the Obama years.
Heres why: The fake news establishment loved Barack Obama. Many in the White House press corps literally worshiped him remember how so many of them compared Obama to Jesus Christ upon his election? they probably prayed to him on a daily basis. Barack Obama was the master, and the fake news reporters were his loyal lap dogs.
Lap dogs dont go around pissing in their masters lap if they do, their master is going to stop petting them and stroking them and cooing baby talk into their ears, which is what Obama did with the journalistic profession for 8 years, in the process killing it dead.
These same lap dogs turned into a pack of rabid pit bulls when Donald Trump won the 2016 election. They wake up every morning frothing at the mouth, intent upon doing anything they can to help Robert Mueller and the deep state thugs like Rod Rosenstein who remain in the FBI and Justice Department work to bring down this duly elected President. Any time some anonymous source with knowledge of the special counsels investigation tosses them some potentially damaging nugget of information, they rush it into print or on-air without editorial oversight or the slightest care about whether or not it is true.
Because to todays fake news media, truth is a relative concept. Something is only true if it is damaging to the President or those around him and thus fits the narrative the media/deep state is attempting to brainwash into the public mind. Stories that are not damaging to the President like North Korea agreeing to release its American prisoners at Mr. Trumps insistence dont get covered. Stories that are damaging like allegations of a 12-year old affair by a porn star get covered ad nauseum.
This is all part the media/deep state game plan. In NBCs way of thinking, the embarrassment of having to correct a story pales in comparison to the damage done to the President of the United States by leaving it lingering out there in the public consciousness for four and a half hours. After all, most people who heard the initial story will never know about the correction, and thus will walk around misinformed and mis-informing their friends and family members for the foreseeable future.
This is the Big Lie in action. Joseph Goebbels would have felt right at home in todays U.S. news media.
Just another day in the Big Lie lives in America.
That is all.

What I’d like to know...is where NBC got this story to start with. If it didn’t come from the White House...then where?

It most likely came from some “source” within the Justice Department/FBI apparatus. One of the many Obama holdover thugs that Sessions refuses to get rid of.
I’ve not had television since 1997, but get exposed to TV news from time to time in airports, lobbies, etc. But those things alreays mean “CNN” or “FOX”.
I keep forgetting that the big-3 networks still have news departments.
The truth as far as the Mueller team is capable of speaking the truth, anyway is that Cohens phone activity has been monitored by what is known as a pen register, which simply allows the feds to note the phone numbers he is calling.

NBC NEWS is wrong again! They cite sources which are constantly wrong. Problem is, like so many others, the sources probably dont exist, they are fabricated, fiction! NBC, my former home with the Apprentice, is now as bad as Fake News CNN. Sad!
Actually, I believe the first story that came out — that Cohen WAS being wiretapped — in the true sense of the word. I believe the “correction” — that only phone numbers were being captured — was the Fake News. Knowing what we do about the DOJ, FBI, etc., why is the wiretapping story difficult to believe? It isn’t.
Goebbels actually learned his trade by following the U.S. news media. Fact! Check it out.
So what if...the original story was correct and Mueller had them change it to protect his “investigation”
Funny, I watched Gayle King on CBS This morning drool over Comey in an interview and referenced misinformation from the WH multiple times, yet not one word of the totally fake news report from fellow leftwing activist MSM member NBC.
They sure are particular in how they want to misinform Americans. Gayle, you’re a disaster along with Charlie Rose and NorDUH O’Donnell. Fake News.
Kudos. 2008 for me. Right after Barry was selected to his 2nd term.
Where did this thing come from?
NBC and the New York Times are the flagships of the Ministry of Propaganda.
