The establishment media aka the MSM appears to be attempting to break their own record of how many “fake news” stories they can get to go viral over the course of three days since the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
MSM FAKE NEWS ITEM NUMBER ONE
The Washington Post, New York Times, CNN , LA Times, Reuters, The Hill, AOL News, Wall Street Journal and MSNBC, all blared headlines, after the termination of Comey, stating “Comey sought more resources for Russia probe” before he was fired. The majority of them using almost the exact same wording, as shown in the search screen shot below:
The only one not linked above was the MSNBC report, which is shown in the short clip below, where Rachel Maddow dramatically reported on the reports of additional resources being sought for the Russia probe. Also provided in the video below is the congressional testimony by the new acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, when he is asked if additional funds had been requested for the Russia investigation, to which his answer shows that all those reports above, were completely “fake news.”
McCabe was asked by Senate Intelligence Committee member Susan Collins, after referencing the the press reports, “Are you aware of that request, can you confirm that that request was in fact made?”
McCabe’s response: “I cannot confirm that request was made. As you know ma’am, when we need resources, we make those requests here. So I — I don’t — I’m not aware of that request and it’s not consistent with my understanding of how we request additional resources.
That said, we don’t typically request resources for an individual case. And as I mentioned, I strongly believe that the Russian investigation is adequately resourced.”
