As we have regularly documented on this site, the so-called “mainstream media” is replete with hucksters, frauds, liars, and phonies. In fact, truth be told, the vast majority of establishment media types are little more than far-Left hacks and shills for the Democratic Party.
That helps explain a rather remarkable finding in a recently-conducted survey by one of the very purveyors of misleading, false, and fake news: CBS News. [That wasn’t always the case, by the way, because CBS News used to employ crack investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson — who has reported the truth about the dangers of vaccines.]
The network conducted a poll claiming that Americans were “split” on the so-called “Russia” investigation being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller (with a very Democrat-heavy, anti-Trump staff, by the way).
The poll found that most Republicans believe the Russian probe is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt. But 91 percent of Democrats say that it’s a “serious matter” that ought to worry President Donald J. Trump.
This 91 percent of Democrats, by the way, most likely get 100 percent of their news from “mainstream” media sources that are working hand-in-hand with the Deep State and political establishment to undermine and even oust Trump.
“Americans divide in their views on the Russia investigation: eight in 10 Republicans call it politically motivated, while three in four Democrats say it is justified,” CBS News reported.
There you go. Knowing that Democrats watch Left-wing, anti-Trump media makes it easy to understand how they can be duped into thinking this “Trump-Russia collusion to steal the election from Hillary” thing is real, when clearly it isn’t.
But that hasn’t stopped the mainstream media from continuing to look for “proof” that it happened, as evidenced recently by CNN.
Those fools intentionally misreported a story last week claiming Donald Trump Jr. was offered “dirt” on Clinton from someone allegedly tied to Wikileaks, with the insinuation that it was really a “Russia” connection because everyone knows Russia “hacked” the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign (except that they didn’t).
The Fake News Network reported that on Sept. 4, an email offering the dirt was sent to Don Jr. from a person named Mike Erickson. In reality, Erickson sent Don Jr. an email on September 14, not the 4th. That is significant because on September 13 Wikileaks published that very same trove of data, so the organization could not have possibly offered it exclusively to the Trump campaign.
What’s more, the email from Erickson makes it clear that Erickson is only directing Don Jr. to a website where the data is stored because the trove is more than 400 megabytes and far too large to send as an email attachment.
The email is clearly dated Sept. 14. A tweet from Wikileaks is clearly dated Sept. 13.

Why would the initial report claim the tweet was sent Sept. 4?
The only explanation for CNN purposely misreporting the timeline is to leave its easily duped viewers and readers with the impression that ‘the smoking gun of collusion’ had been found!
When it hadn’t.
It’s this kind of routine fabrication of details that has led to nine of 10 Democrats still believing in the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
That’s distressing not only because it’s false, but because the one person in last year’s campaign season who really did collude with the Russians was…Hillary Clinton. (Related: Trump calls for investigation into Clinton ties to ‘Russia dossier’.)
Her campaign, along with the DNC, bought and paid for the bogus “Trump dossier” used by the FBI to justify a FISA court surveillance warrant on Team Trump. The man who wrote the BS dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele, got information for the document from Russian operatives.
It’s not clear why anyone would continue to believe anything the so-called “mainstream media” reports that has anything at all to do with the Trump administration and last year’s campaign.
Virtually none of it is true, but for Democrats, virtually all of it is believed.
