As the media kept a distorted judgment high-Muller probe played

in the vicinity ofthe video Howard Kurtz: press to engage in the soul-despite the search, no collusion? Probably not

The mainstream media were so heavily invested in the Robert Mueller investigation, and their potential for the premature end of a trump presidency, that their message was distorted judgment.

There is simply no other conclusion, after two years of saturation coverage, sometimes overhyped and overwrought, a probe of the wound to produce no criminal helper and his family show on the Central issue of the agreements with Russia, or on an obstruction of justice by the President, his top.

Sure, there are many caveats: We have not seen the report, it is not a criminal offence, by the President, but “not relieve him,” and the final decision was made by Trump’s attorney General. It is also true that for all the attacks on Müller and his team-the President and his lawyers, the former FBI Director, has his work quietly and without sensationalism in the rejection of lawsuit.

But the resolution is a hell of a black eye for the press.


I have the argument for two years on the air, and in my book that the media overhyped the investigation. And to dismiss if you take this attitude, some journalists rush you, I have been committed as a trump partisan, even though, for both sides, when it comes to the White house.

The fact that Müller does not bring any further charges does not mean that the probe, which led to 37 charges, was a witch-hunt. Nor does it mean that many of the investigative stories about the process are declared null and void a kind of fake messages. Officers can behave in questionable, that does not rise to the level of indictable offences.

Not an excuse for the fact that the major news organizations of numerous high-profile errors in the prosecution of the case, sometimes what is involved in the suspension or departure of the journalists.

The relentless nature of the coverage, mainly negative in tone, and a non-stop analysis and commentary that Trump was in deep trouble, to think often desire and completely outshines.

Brit Hume, the reporting of the media, called the agreement a narrative of the ‘worst journalistic debacles of my life’

The RNC, a partisan source, to be sure, says The New York Times, Washington Post and CNN and MSNBC websites 8,507 article to mention the Müller-examination have been published.

All of this should prompt some soul-searching and re-evaluation of the profession, especially botched the 2016 election-and, at times, seemed determined to prove that the voters make the wrong choice hit. But for the most part, the defensive and insularity of the journalism, that’s unlikely.

Here is what some critics say on the left and right.

Glenn Greenwald, the uber-liberal reporter and commentator at the Intercept, says: “the test of every MSNBC personality, CNN law ‘expert’ liberal-centrist outlets, and #resistance fraudsters and see if you still have a spark of self-reflection, humility or admission of massive error …

“While the standard liberal outlets dutifully said what they were told, the CIA & FBI, a lot of reporters, the right-wing media, the routine taunts of super-smart-indeed, liberals like primitive & propaganda relentlessly great digging and reporting.”

Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, another liberal writer, says Russia gate is WMD this generation ‘ s, calls the Müller-findings “a death-blow to the reputation of the American news media … Nothing Trump is accused of now by the press is to be believed, large parts of the population.”

Alan Dershowitz, says Müller, is equivocation about obstruction of justice is a “cop out”

Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz, who has often trump defended in the investigation, said Fox, it was “a good day for the President” and a “very, very bad day for CNN.” He said,” you should be your head hanging in shame, when you think about it, how many people went out on a limb and predicted that it charges for disability would, it would be charges of collusion, there would be charges for this and for that.”

On the other hand, Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at the Federalist, said in a heated “Media Buzz” – debate with Philippe Reines, that the media “rolled directly into an absolutely insane conspiracy territory, the country as a hostage for two years … It’s scary how many people believed this crazy theory about Russia agreements, but many people lacked the courage to speak against you, in the face of hysteria.”

But New York Times editor-in-chief Dean Baquet told The Washington Post: “I’m comfortable with our reporting. It is never our task to determine the illegality, but to expose the actions of people in power. And that is what we and others have done and continue to do so.”

Many of the media, and notes that Trump played before the other probes in New York and on the hill, it is just in the reporting of the results.

The Times: “President Trump, it was the best day in his tenure so far. The dark, ominous cloud over his presidency, all but lifting up on Sunday with the release of the special counsel’s conclusions that the offer under the threat of indictment and gave him a powerful boost for the last 22 months of his term.”

A couple of fierce Trump critics try not to rotate or to mitigate the results.

Kelly Anne Conway: After 2 years wasted on the Russia probe, the Democrats, the time for 2020

Joe Scarborough said on “Morning Joe” , “if the appointment of Robert Müller was the worst day of his presidency, the release of Robert Mueller’s report was the best day in his presidency.” He said it was not know a good message to the country that Trump collude with Vladimir Putin.

And MSNBC host Ari Melber said: “this is Exactly how so many people called to stand with Congressional Republicans, to principles, they are tonight and the coming days is certainly a time for the Democrats in the Congress stand up and do not confirm, Bob Mueller to find a paid choice-conspiracy.”

As the President, he would have answered, with a long-national-nightmare-is-more tone, but that’s not him. Instead, while you claim total relief, he struck in “an illegal takedown, failed,” and added, “hopefully, someone on the other side.”

But it was not illegal, despite the controversial circumstances prompted the probe, in Trump’s own Deputy attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, appointed Müller as a special counsel. And for those who believe that William Barr, who previously served as attorney-general, George H. W. Bush, is politically biased, it is Rosenstein, represented by the press as a stand to Trump in the decision not to prosecute, disability, allegations. (Miller would have made the call themselves the independent Council law, but since both parties are happy it expire, he decided, as part of the DOJ to defer the decision to his bosses.)

President Trump: The Mueller report is a complete and total discharge

On “Today,” Savannah Guthrie Miller asked whether Trump is owed an apology, because “the President has absolutely. Bob Mueller, a life-long civil servant, a former Marine, a registered Republican gloats He called him a national disgrace, discredited, has the Prosecutor gone rogue, who headed a gang of thugs.”

Sanders’ response: “I think, thanks to the Democrats and the liberal media, the President, and she owes the American people an apology.”


And Kelly Anne Conway, Fox said that the democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, kicking back on statements he made in the entire investigation.

So, instead of relying on the Mueller investigation, Trump and his inner circle seem determined to oppose it, and the press, as part of his re-election campaign. Whether this proves a successful tactic or not, the media are excesses in the last two years, with a major goal.
