If you are not yet furious at the way our elections are being manipulated by and through the mainstream anti-Trump media, then you haven’t been paying attention.

We saw the pattern from 2016-2019 with allegations of Trump-Russia collusion. Vague accusations based on anonymous sources were launched one after the other by the NY Times, CNN, MSNBC and many other outlets to create a permanent crisis news cycle. It all fell apart with the release of the Mueller Report, but it never went away. There have been insistent insinuations post-Mueller that Trump remained a Russian asset.

And now it’s back again.

Yesterday, the NY Times and WaPo almost simultaneously (funny how that works) broke stories suggesting the Russians are intervening in the 2020 election to help Trump and that Trump was trying to cover it up. There were no details to the stories, no named sources. but it was enough to kick off another media frenzy.

Two tweets caught my attention that reflect the utter depravity of the accusations.

The first was by Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe, someone who has disgraced himself and sullied his reputation with deranged hatred for Trump. Tribe accused Trump of treason and being an enemy of the nation. Tribe, of course, couched it as “if confirmed” as an out when called out on it:

This truly looks like TREASON in all but the narrowest possible sense. If confirmed, it’s utterly devastating. It points to an enemy of the nation sitting in the White House. This cannot stand if we are to survive as a sovereign constitutional republic.

The other tweet was by the most bitter woman on earth, Hillary Clinton, who referred to Trump as “Putin’s Puppet”:

Putin’s Puppet is at it again, taking Russian help for himself.

He knows he can’t win without it. And we can’t let it happen.

As always happens, the story falls apart after a day or two. Jake Tapper now is tweeting that the original anti-Trump reporting is faulty and wrong.

But wait,there’s more.

Now WaPo also is reporting that the Russians want Bernie and the Bernie’s campaign was briefed on it weeks ago. Why wasn’t this released at the same time as the Trump news?

The election is being manipulated. It’s not clear the original source of the manipulation, but the manipulation is enabled by a media desperate for scoops and clicks and driven by Trump hatred.
