CNN and MSNBC Promoted Russia Sponsored Anti-Trump Rally
Newsbusters.org ^ | February 16th, 2018

One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day.

A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”

Oh don’t you know, the Russian provoked anti-Trump rallies were just a deflection of their true aim to elect Donald trump as the nation’s 45th President. /sarcasm

If Russia had blatantly and illegally connived with Hildabeast to get her elected, the US media would be deliriously in love with Russia and Putin.

Wish their licenses would be revoked!!!
Ideally, news operations ought to function in the best interests of the public good.
They should not be allowed to foment unrest and conspire to promote a coup attempt against a duly-elected President!!!

The thing I resent is that we have to pay for CNN and MSNBC if we want OAN and FoX on cable or Direct TV. If we could just pay for what we want to watch the comme news networks would go bust!

Did the CNN/MSNBC crowd donate to the cause? Or did they just send congratulatory emails? (snix)

The Russians cleverly sponsored and organized communist anti-Trump rallies that would so enrage normal Americans that Trump would solidify his power, thus strengthening him. Obviously the Russkies were pro-Trump. It’s as plain as the nose on your face.

Snort!

Who needs TV, cable or otherwise? I get all I want on the Internet, and don’t pay bubkes, except for the ISP.

Every day Mueller fails to charge Clinton, her lawyers, Fusion GPS, Chris Steele and the corrupt Obama administration officials for colluding with the Russians and obstruction of justice is another day Mueller is exposed as a political hack.

I wish they would have provided information on the coverage of the anti-Hillary rally.

You don't. You support CNN and MSNBC through your own free will. Don't justify it by trying to claim you "are made to pay" for them. You aren't.
