Skip to comments.Stelter Rips Trump Defenders Over Whistleblower Report: They ‘Will Do Anything’ to Deny & Deflect
Posted on 09/22/2019 11:35:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
CNNs Brian Stelter used his latest Reliable Sources monologue to bash Donald Trumps media defenders for their dismissive reactions to the president and his allies pressuring Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden.
Stelter began by remarking on how Trump is leading a disinformation campaign with his attacks on Democrats and the media, all while the firestorm continues to swirl around the whistleblower report about his conversations with foreign leaders. This led to Stelter taking note of how Trumps media and political allies are railing against the whistleblower instead off addressing the disturbing promises Trump supposedly made to foreign leaders.
Thats the rhetoric. Thats whats happening on the right. This shows how polluted our information environment is, Stelter said. There is a poisonous cloud that covers our political discourse because Trump and his media wingmen will do anything to deny, deflect and distract.
As Stelter acknowledged that the whistleblower report hasnt been publicly released yet, he compared the situation to Attorney General William Barrs attempt to spin Robert Muellers report and put it in the most favorable light to Trump. He determined that the president is abusing his powers for political gain, and he said that the press needs to provide clear explanations of what is going on to address the complications of the story.

What’s a Stelter?
I see it as Trump getting a bit of a break due to overwhelming evidence against Biden corruption. Thank God. Let’s hope the tide keeps rolling in Trump’s favor and flushes Biden out of the race. Rudyhas done well. Trump should stay quiet.
This guy should open up his own theater, because the projection is strong with this one.
And Biden's threatening to withhold US funds unless Ukraine fire's the prosecutor of his son's company is what, exactly?

Articles like this would never be written if there were consequences to the “journalists” for being wrong.
Dude, you are so stupid
You Can’t see this is a Spanish Prisoner con, which will Complicate the lives of the Biden’s?
You wanna do funk with everybody, now here it comes...
The few times I’ve watched he doesn’t seem like a rocket scientist.
Why is it that the Dems can spend 2.5 years on a witch hunt about the Trump family’s dealings with Russia but the Biden family’s dealings with Ukraine are out of bounds? I was driving a lot today and on the radio heard various news people and Dem politicians saying things along the lines that if Trump asked Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, it would so obviously be an impeachable offense. Well, why the hell is that?! If the Bidens were breaking laws in Ukraine or anywhere, what’s so bad about investigating that? If they didn’t do anything wrong, they have nothing to worry about. If they were engaged in law-breaking, I’d think it’d be more of an impeachable offense to assist them in covering it up than in exposing them. But that’s just me, I suppose.
We must reenact laws against propaganda, i.e, Smith Mundt amendment and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987. They were lifted in 2013, as part of the NDAA.
“The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has an amendment added that negates the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (SMA) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987.
These laws made propaganda used to influence foreigners and US citizens illegal. Without these laws, disinformation could run rampant throughout our information junkets.
This amendment added to the NDAA has passed into implementation as of this month.
SMA defines the prohibition of domestic access to influence information through a variety of means, from broadcast to publishing of books, media, and online sources by restricting the State Department.”
Unmask the trouble maker.

LOL. Thats exactly what I was thinking. 👍
I dont think this one’s going to be a winner for the Dems. Even with the new and improved spin of “whistle-blower” which they have a nerve to try to claim. If it is true about Biden, that’s devastating, not only to Biden but also potentially the last administration.
Nah. The 0bama admin folks are fine. Curiously Barr has their back.
More sh## from the sh## stirrers
First response was, “Who”?
Then I saw CNN.
Then is discounted it as fake news.
An obese humpty dumpty cnn employee with shiny fat red lips and a falsetto voice who hates President Trump and uses his platform to slam him every chance he gets.
Also has at lease one child which means some female lay with him and accepted his sperm willingly.
