The liberal mainstream media is in a feeding frenzy attacking President-elect Donald Trump for what is really a failure on the part of Barack Obama. It has to do with the issue of the charges that Russian hackers interfered and influenced the November elections.
While they are all attacking Trump, who questioned the reports of the Russian hacking, the liberal media seems to be ignoring the fact that Obama and his intelligence people knew about the hacks months, possible a year ago, and did little to stop it until after Trump won the election. Chances are, had Hillary won, we wouldn’t be hearing anything about Russian hacking or its effect on the election, other than the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton emails.
Yesterday, I was watching CBS This Morning, which often gets me riled up as all three of the anchors are extremely liberal Democrats and always ignore the facts and attack any Republican or conservative, when they interviewed Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign adviser and future Counselor to the President. They didn’t listen to what she said or her answers to their questions. They continued to act in a very unprofessional manner that reminded me of how a school of red-bellied piranha would attack any wounded animal that falls into the water.
Here is part of the interview which I recorded on my DVR and then transcribed on the playback:
Charlie Rose: so here you have Mr. Clapper saying there’s a difference between skepticism and disparagement. Question being asked is the president-elect questioning the credibility of the intelligence agencies and is that going to lead to a strained relationship and hurt morale? But the question people want to know in the end is what is the president-elect trying to do?
Conway: Charlie, President-elect Trump has great respect the intelligence community. We’re very happy that the top intelligence officials will be here in Trump Tower today to give their own briefing to the President-elect. What’s disappointing is having leaks in the media before we actually have a report on the alleged hacking and it’s been very confounding to us and certainly to the president-elect, why this report, if it wasn’t prepared until yesterday, why operatives were expelled, why punishment preceded actual conclusions and I would remind us all what happened at yesterday’s hearing. Clapper and Rogers also admitted that this country’s way behind the curve when it comes to cyber security. We should all share an interest in improving that. They also made clear that and we saw in an FBI report yesterday on CNN that the FBI asked the DNC to take a look at its server and they were rebuffed. The DNC refused to do that, and so that’s why they were hacked. One thing I want to say is let’s not complete the two things, that the respect for the intelligence and the intelligence and security team that the president-elect has assembled for his administration is solid and he works with them daily. Secondly, let’s hear what’s in the briefing today. Let the president-elect see the information, but the president himself just received the report this week.
At this point, Conway was interrupted and the attacks began. Whenever she tried to bring up the fact that Obama reacted and took action against Russia before the Intelligence report was completed, the three anchor’s viciously attacked Trump for his comments being made in advance. Conway tried to question why Obama, or anyone in his administration, took any more action other than Obama telling Putin to ‘knock it off’ last summer. If they knew the Russians were doing this, then why didn’t they do anything to stop it. However, the liberal anchors continued to attack and attack and attack Trump for his comments while completely ignoring Conway’s questions about the failure of the Obama administration which allowed it all to happen.
This is the problem with most of the major network news outlets today. They are so liberally biased that they ignore the facts and truth and blindly attack others for doing far less than those they defend.
What everyone should be asking is why Obama or anyone else did anything to stop the Russian hacking if they knew it was happening? Why did Obama and his cronies wait until AFTER the election of Trump to go public and then take action before any official report had been completed? Why are they blaming Trump for Obama’s failure?
