    Does U.S. Media Help Russia Destabilize The United States?

    Does U.S. Media Help Russia Destabilize The United States?
    These documents suggest Russia’s attempt to ‘hack’ the 2016 election was hardly just about the election, and that a main target and beneficiary of that effort is the American press.



    One reporter, however, claims that the Senate intelligence committee has verified “some of the Steele dossier.” Ken Dilanian of NBC News told MSNBC Thursday morning that “Burr said they had been able to corroborate some aspects of it.”

    But in the 40-minute-long press conference, neither Burr nor Warner suggested anything of the sort. Rather, Burr said “the committee cannot really decide the credibility of the dossier without understanding things like who paid for it, who are your sources and subsources?” Dilanian explained that “two sources told NBC News the committee has corroborated parts of the dossier.”

    Dilanian did not explain to viewers what Burr was clearly hinting at—namely, that the Steele dossier is the paid product of a private information company called Fusion GPS, which has become notorious for inventing sleazy and often fact-free attacks on democratic whistleblowers and political figures and feeding them to journalists. Dilanian himself is no stranger to Fusion GPS.

    Not sure they are deliberately helping the Russians .
    But they certainly are destabilizing the United States.
    We are no longer united.

    The media has taken sides with the destabilizing influences.
    Mainly Democrats, and crazed liberals.
    Men. Women, Black, White,Asian, whatever.
    We are all part of America and should be working together.

    Obama was very divisive, He certainly did nothing to allow everyone to bond.
    Then along came Trump, who spoke to the American people and they elected him.
    Immediately a dump Trump campaign started.
    By both parties
    The idea of peaceful transition was tossed out the window, and it became the people who elected Trump
    against politicians who were trying to hold onto their power, Democrats and every individual that voted on one issue and lost.

    It is tearing the US apart and the media is definitely a liberal factor.

    This is most amazing...let's look at it:

    Not sure where you got the word deliberately from...but hey that's just your well know English deficiency.

    We are no longer united? Really? When did you figure that out? And why do you believe that? Is it because the entire world doesn't hold the exact same opinion on EVERY topic as you do? Is that the standard you think we should aspire to? Everyone thinks exactly the same and holds exactly the same opinion and considers the President to be a God? (in case you don't understand, which you likely don't, that is the position you and the rest on here push...as you claim to be such amazing American Patriots)

    By this you, of course, mean only the "liberal media". Fox News only tells the truth, right? Rush Limbaugh would never ever put a political spin on anything? Red State, Zero Hedge, Breitbart are all just outlets for truth and justice, right?

    We should be working together? How can that happen when YOU and everyone on here spend every ounce of energy they have professing their hatred for "libprogs". (The Libprog is anyone who doesn't look, speak, think and pray exactly as you do.)

    Obama was very divisive, He certainly did nothing to allow everyone to bond.
    You and those like you gave him so much opportunity too didn't you?

    Then along came Trump, who spoke to the American people and they elected him.
    A minority of American voted for him. The Electoral College elected him. (Just so you are clear, that is stated as fact not as b*tching or whining. Trump did not win a majority of votes.)

    Immediately a dump Trump campaign started.
    By both parties
    That is because Trump was, is and always will be completely and utterly unsuited for the job. It is that simple. The man has no business being President.


    The idea of peaceful transition was tossed out the window,
    Huh...no peaceful transition of power. I must have missed the story on Fox about the tanks rolling down the streets, the ethnic cleansing and jailing of Hillary supporters.

    and it became the people who elected Trump
    against politicians who were trying to hold onto their power, Democrats and every individual that voted on one issue and lost.
    Guess you have missed the overwhelming evidence that even those who supported Trump are now losing faith in him or have lost faith in him? Why can't he get anything done? Because his support is around 35%, because he pisses off everyone the he needs to help him get anything done, because he has no actual agenda or actual ideas.

    It is tearing the US apart and the media is definitely a liberal factor.
    As opposed to the gentile and academic manner in which the far right is operating, correct?

    Actually, I want to revise this answer.

    The media does WAY more to destabilize the US than the Russians ever dreamed of.

    - doesn't count in a Presidential election sugar tits and 60 million is hardly a minority

    and Obama Did

    disaffected democrats who voted for Trump rather than Hillary and independents who voted for anyone but Hillary are the % point in support lost

    Why can't he get anything done? Because his support is around 35%, because he pisses off everyone the he needs to help him get anything done, because he has no actual agenda or actual ideas.

    The Establishment is against Trump Dems / Repubs ...
    and don't give me that party unity GOP crap many of the Establishment GOP'ers have been against Trump since before the election

    You sure spent a long time on that. I made my post and I am sticking to it.
    Your post certainly provides the evidence for mine.

    Very divisive.
