Kassam in Daily Caller: Russiagate Wasn’t The First Media Hoax, And It Probably Won’t Be the Last

There are few greater joys in life than being able to watch self-appointed arbiters and guardians on the defensive. Such is the case with the U.S. media and the Mueller report’s findings. Just don’t expect to hear many apologies.

The few honest journalists that are left are now coming to recognize just how profoundly their colleagues misled the public.

Others, such as CNN’s Jeffrey Zucker and Brian Stelter, and New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait, are attempting to save what little face they have left.

Not only does this group deny there was anything wrong with spreading stories such as “What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987?,” but they maintain it’s their critics — the tenacious few who are brave enough to call them out for their lies — who need to be reined in.

Something important is being lost in this discussion: Russiagate was not the first time the media has so blatantly misled the American public. It’s not even the first time they’ve been caught so clearly in the wrong as a result of their ideological biases.
