Holy f****** crap

Local station here in Boston just lead with a headline saying the CIA came out with a report saying that Russia interfered in our election to favor Trump? Seems like a bombshell if it's the lead story on local news.

4. the sad part is, this has been out in the open for MONTHS

ever since ties were shown between Manafort and Russia earlier this year. Once they were exposed and Manafort was forced to "leave" the campaign (I.E. work with Russia in the shadows) the media just let the story die because HILLARY'S SERVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trump was never forced to answer questions about it, neither was his campaign. It just went away. We've known since at least MAY that i can see that Russia and Trump were working together. And it was just swept under the rug.

...as they were too busy trying to make a horse race of the election for their ratings

38. The media didn't care about any "horse race." That is a myth.

 

They WANTED Trump. And why? Because he was good for ratings and ad revenue.

Ask Jeff Zucker. He is the one who created this Frankenstein called "President" Donald Trump.

40. It is terrifying to think we have a Russian-backed puppet here.

 

Of course, the Russians didn't initially push his candidacy--that was all on the media, particularly Jeff Zucker with CNN. The media are entirely responsible for this debacle. But the Russians saw an opening, and Putin wasn't stupid.

People should have been paying attention to the GOP primaries instead of the Democratic ones, where the outcome was never in doubt. I had never, EVER seen anything like it in my life, that one media outlet, CNN, was literally pushing a completely unqualified, JOKE candidate to the exclusion of everybody else and because Zucker knew Trump would be good for ratings and ad revenue.

I don't think I will EVER get over this election.

We'll see if they make anything of this.

For the most part, Repukes can get away with anything, including selling the country out to the Russians.

I checked and it isn't even on FOX NEWS top 10. It is headlines everywhere else.

My only question is why did Wash Post publish this on Friday night??? That is when you release news if you want to bury it.

now that we have been calling him "President Elect" for a month, he's gained in power. I think his evil power is now too strong to counter by appeal to reason.

Maybe the Electoral College could call for a new election? I don't know it that is politically/legally feasible. But clearly their charge at this point should be to block the Trump Presidency. If I were betting though I would bet that Trump will eventually end up PROTUS which makes me completely sick

They will vote Trump before they ever back her.

I think Trump had some sound bite along the lines of, "These are the same people who said there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."

Sad thing is- little sound bites like those are letting Trump get away with just about anything he wants.
