You would think that the news that the Obama DOJ and FBI abused the FISA process to illegally spy on the Trump campaign and transition would be the biggest story ever.
But oddly enough, there is not a word of it at CNN’s main page.
Not one word.
And this got me thinking about the insipid Jeff Flake and his accusation that Donald Trump is a threat to a Free and Independent Press.
Well, Jeff. Let me clue you in.
There is a threat to a Free and Independent Press.
But it isn’t coming from Donald Trump.
The threat is internal.
You understand what I’m saying?
The mainstream news media is the very entity that threatens a Free and Independent Press in the United States.
When a major cable news outlet suppresses an explosive and damaging story for no other reason than it harms the political party they favor, that is a threat to a Free and Independent Press.
When Facebook and Twitter deliberately suppress news stories with which they ideologically disagree, that is a threat to a Free and Independent Press.
And when Google uses their search algorithms to hide news stories for the same reason?
That too is threatens a Free and Independent Press.
The damage to a Free Press is coming from within, not from Donald Trump.
And in light of the story that exploded yesterday and continues today, Jeff Flake’s self-serving cluelessness looks all the more absurd.
The purpose of having a Free and Independent Press is to ensure the American people are informed on the facts.
Otherwise, what we are getting would be propaganda.
And isn’t that exactly what we’re getting now?
But it isn’t the Federal Government or President Trump that is depriving the American people of a Free and Independent Press.
It is the press itself that is doing that.
There’s a reason I called the news media “the Enslaved Press.”
They are not free.
And they are certainly not independent.
Instead, they have willingly enslaved themselves to a particular political party and ideology. They have willingly made themselves propaganda. And the powerful companies in Silicon Valley are aiding and abetting this propaganda.
And it is never more evident than it is today.
Trust me. CNN is fully aware of what is going on regarding this classified memo.
And they are choosing to ignore it.
Because the narrative – the propaganda that they’ve been pushing for the last year – would be utterly destroyed if they acknowledged this news.
The media is hot on the trail of the story about Trump allegedly having sex with a porn star 12 years ago while ignoring a scandal one Congressman calls "worse than Watergate".
Gee, it's almost like they have an agenda or something. ?https://t.co/gHTcUbSGCV

Why doesn’t Jeff Flake understand that?
Trust me. He does.
But Flake, like CNN, is willfully blinded by his own hatred for the President.
Today we have members of Congress who are putting the demands of non-citizens ahead of the needs of the American people.
And we have a so-called “Free Press” that is aiding them in doing so through propaganda and lies.
On top of that, we have the biggest political scandal to rock Washington DC in our lifetime.
And this vaunted “Free and Independent Press” refuses to even acknowledge it exists.
This damage to the credibility of the news media wasn’t done by Donald J. Trump.
All he did was expose it.
And see, that’s exactly what Jeff Flake and the denizens of the Fake News media are angry about.
