The media’s constant pressure, in the last few years, the unfounded assertion that President Trump and his campaign staff conspired with Russia to a “day of reckoning… as we have seen, since the election of 2016.”

This is according to the media reporter Joe Concha, who discussed the range of Müller’s investigation in an interview on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning.

His remarks come a day after attorney General Bill Barr, in a letter to key congressional leaders of the summary of the findings of Special Counsel Robert Müller Russia’s investigation, in which he wrote that it “will find that the Trump campaign or someone connected with him conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the US presidential election in 2016.”

“In the past 22 months, the gossip was, as the gospel treated,” Concha. “Sources providing information to reporters, the accept too ready for, it, like seagulls on the beach.


“This is a day of reckoning for our media, as we have seen, since the election in 2016. I would say, maybe the worst day ever for our media, everything that the reporting and the push by certain narrative around Russia agreements.”

Concha said that narratives contain commonly used phrases, such as “‘the walls are closing in,” [the] ‘noose’, and ‘this is the beginning of the end'” for Trump and his closest allies of the campaign.

“And now we hear, yesterday, and this morning, this is the beginning of something else. The next Chapter,” he said. “You know why? To believe because it is good for ratings, and because people want the worst about this President.”

Concha is also a defendant, as The Washington Post and the New York Times “won Pulitzer’s for its coverage of the Russian agreements.”

The Washington Post, in an article last year highlighting the Pulitzer prize, said that his stories on Russia, “exposed to confidential or secret information, and America changed the political landscape.”


“The Post revelations about Russia, including contacts between Russian figures and President of the trump staff and consultants, helped set the stage for the special counsel in the ongoing investigation into the management,” it wrote.

But Concha for all the time is of the essence, unsubstantiated claims of collusion, the media would have better invested their resources elsewhere.


“Think of the stories that we have missed, as the result of Russia,” he told ‘Fox & Friends’. “The economic performance in relation to the wages or unemployment or growth. The destruction of the ISIS Caliphate. Suddenly came out of nowhere, there is a lot of people seemed to, because no one is really there.

“And the most overlooked story? The opioid epidemic, 70,000 people killed, in the year 2017 alone. That’s more than in car accidents, can’t hear you. And this is what the real American life.”
