So that was even faster than I anticipated [View all]

We all knew that the corporate media would minimize the truly earth shattering story about the Smirnov being a Russian agent and the Rs lying about the Bidens for years. We saw that the NYT (oh yes, the "paper of record" put the story on page A-16.

But it's already almost gone. Besides a few brief mentions of how Rs will continue the probe, the story is already treated as ho-hum.

I DON'T CARE HOW R's ARE REACTING. They've already been proven to be liars that spread Russian propaganda. Where is the outrage, the real journalism that looks for answers to how this happened, or AT LEAST asks questions?

I thought I was incapable of being shocked by lazy media coverage. I was wrong.
It it covers and helps the Rs, the corporate media has no bottom.
