Fake News! Newsweek Invents Bannon - Russia ‘Ties’

Watch out readers of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, since the mere familiarity with Russian authors is now sufficient to have a person branded as a Russian conspirator by mainstream media.

In the latest episode in extreme fake news, the foundering Newsweek Magazine has concocted an entire web of Russian connections around Trump’s chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon simply because Bannon knows something about Russian politics and literature.

While acknowledging that Steve Bannon, “hasn’t been implicated in any of the ongoing probes” into “murky connections” with Russian hackers and spies, and while further noting that Bannon “isn’t under investigation by the FBI for possible collusion with the Kremlin,” Newsweek writer Owen Matthews insists that something even more nefarious is going on between Bannon and the Kremlin.

“But Bannon’s ties to Russia are ideological,” Matthews proclaims, “and therefore, arguably, they’ve had a more profound impact on White House policy with Moscow.”

My second cousin's great uncle visited Russia during World War II. Does that mean I have Russian connections?

Every article the MSM publishes, erodes more and more credibility - for whatever they had left - of these so-called journalists.
We get it, OK. You hate Trump and you love Hillary. But, please put your articles in the Op-Ed section and/or label them as propagandized opinion pieces. And stop making sh*t up.
You create more BS than 6 chicken houses. We're so sick of the Kool-Aid. Please stop already.
Does anyone but me see the slow slide toward Nazi style propaganda from the liberal left. We had a government producing propaganda and a media that was complicit and no one was checking them except Fox News. If Trump did NOT win in November, free press as we know it would have been non-existent. That was Saul Alinsky's mantra that they all study and follow. Scary stuff. They were so close and that's why they are so pissed off! The global socialization promoted by Gyorgy Soros and Co. damn near pulled it off.

Ever heard of "selective outrage"? Seems to me you had no problem soaking up all the fake news Bannon and co. have spewed for quite a lomg time.

Since Soros,is the money man behind seditious organizations causing violence in much of the world, is a known communist and was a nazi sympathizer. Just another smoke screen by the leftists.
