I’ve read Josh Gerstein’s material at politico.com for years, and have usually considered his material reasonably fair.
Not this time.
Mr. Gerstein’s latest piece, titled “Inside Mueller’s FBI team”:
-Has a heading above the article, referencing “TRUMP RUSSIA SCANDAL” – the inference, obviously, being that it has been established there is a scandal. Has there?
-Then provides a detailed description of every member of the mueller team…
…but, somehow, manages not to mention that 13 of the 16 known staff members are registered Democrats, compared to no Registered Republicans at all. And, not surprisingly, virtually all the money donated to political parties is donated to Demcorats – with several donating money specifically to Hillary Clinton.
Is that reasonably fair reporting? Or is that ridiculously unfair?
We both know the answer.
