I just read this USA Today article about Paul manafort pleading guilty to a variety of charges.
Despite the fact that none of these charges has a thing to do with Donald Trump or the 2016 presidential election, the “connection” is discussed extensively in the article.
However, it says not one word about the indisputable fact that manafort’s Ukrainian connection has direct involvement with John and Tony Podesta – both major players in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
From Chuck Ross’s article at thepoliticalinsider.com:
Two lobbying firms, including one owned by Democratic superlobbyist Tony Podesta, knowingly worked with Paul Manafort at the direction of the Ukrainian government, according to an indictment released Friday by the special counsel’s office.
Company A has been identified as Mercury Public Affairs, a lobbying shop operated by former Republican Congressman Vin Weber. Company B has been identified as Podesta Group, the firm that Tony Podesta founded with his brother, John, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
How can the USA Today article write so much evidenceless innuendo about Donald Trump, but 100% leave out the direct involvement of the Hillary-steeped Podesta brothers?
This, folks, is “fake news” at it’s finest… and another of the many reasons fewer and fewer people trust mainstream media.
