Matthew Whitaker Is Owed an Apology by the Fake News Media on Both Sides by Brian Cates

Former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is owed an apology by an awful lot of people in the media, both on the left and the right.
Whitaker was instantly mocked and dismissed in many quarters after he stated at a recent press conference that special counsel Robert Muellers investigation was almost completed and that he was looking forward to receiving his final report soon.
Fake News outlets who spent the last two years building up the Mueller hype were caught by surprise by Whitakers announcement. In recent months they had been selling the narrative that Mueller is not only far from being finished, but that he has a whole new bunch of indictments waiting to be unsealed, supposedly targeting people such as Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner.
Within minutes of the press conference ending, the uproar began as it became clear that many journalists covering the Mueller team simply refused to believe what Whitaker said.
This is what happens when people who are heavily invested in a particular narrative are confronted by new evidence. The person presenting the new evidence instantly becomes a problem to be managed.
Vanity Fair took the position that Whitaker appeared confused and had little idea what he was talking about...
Sometimes Matt Whittaker, as does Tucker Carlson, squints his eyes and peers querily at whatever jacobin is biting at his ankles, as he tries to determine just what on God’s green earth are they talking about.
