1. Abramson is commenting about this AP release




The Associated Press ✔
@AP
The nation waited two years as special counsel Robert Mueller investigated President Trump's campaign for potential collusion with Russia. The release of his report was an unsatisfying finale for many who are eager to hear from Mueller himself.

It points to a commentary on AP News entitled "Channeling maybe-yes, maybe-no Mueller: Speak, Bob, Speak!"

3. Mueller pulled his punches or Barr cut him off before he was done.

4. Yes this is not clear. I'm betting that Barr did something to short circuit Mueller.

5. Really? "AP FACT CHECK: Trump, Barr distort Mueller report findings"

President Donald Trump and his team are still twisting the findings of the special counsel’s report on the Russia investigation.

At a Senate hearing Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr echoed Trump’s refrain of “no collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia, insisting that any and all allegations of collusion have been “proven false.” That’s not the case.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham also got it wrong when he asserted that special counsel Robert Mueller had asked Barr to make a ruling on whether Trump obstructed justice.

There were, and are, plenty of news organization articles stating the positions of the various people involved, and making clear what many experts say the Mueller report contains, which is EVIDENCE. And exactly what Mueller's findings were.

The redacted Mueller Report has been released to the public, as well. In word searchable format.

There have been hearings on tv.

Don't blame the media for an uneducated or cult-led people, or people too busy to keep up with this. It's complicated and frustrating.

News organizations are fully reporting all that is going on. That's how WE know about it. Bob Mueller and Adam Schiff didn't call me personally to explain things to me. Nadler didn't call me personally, either. I READ IT AND HEARD IT IN THE MEDIA.

6. The one article you found does not cancel out,

 

the narrative that the M$M is pushing, no collusion, no obstruction, the Mueller investigation is over, time to move on to investigating the FBI and Democrats who carried out that witch hunt.

That's the prevailing narrative being pushed by the M$M, the poster of this thread is for the most part spot on.

8. I'm not hearing a RW narrative from the legit news organizations...

and certainly not on MSNBC political talk shows.

I'm hearing the facts. I don't know who you all are watching and reading.

CNN
WaPo
NYT
NBC
MSNBC

This is how I know what the facts are. Adam Schiff and other leading Democrats are all over the talk shows. I've seen Chairman Cummings on a couple of them.

So I disagree. Not every article is going to go into detail, but they are all reporting the facts. That's how they've won Pulitzer Prizes in the past, and gained the respect of journalists and others throughout the country and world.

I'm sure that some have dropped the ball. But not most. They've been quite forward about making it clear that there IS evidence of "collusion" and "obstruction," but...... (insert details here).

It's easy to blame the media for the public choosing to watch/read the RW sources instead of legitimate news sources, or balanced programming, or an ignorant 1/3 of the public. Both sides can't be right. The RW claims the media is "left wing," and the left claims the media is "reporting RW myths." Maybe that means the media has gotten it right, if both sides blame them.

The article I posted was one among many. Do you read CNN? Why do you think Trump declares CNN an enemy of the people?
