Thursday night, former click-bait site BuzzFeed released an explosive report claiming that President Donald J. Trump directed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Citing two anonymous federal law enforcement officials “involved in an investigation of the matter,” the alleged news organization ran with the story, which, to be sure, accuses the President of at least one felony.
This morning, one of the investigative reporters (using that term loosely) made a CNN appearance to discuss the “bombshell” revelations, only to admit he had not seen any evidence of the story that he broke.
CNN host Alisyn Camerota asked BuzzFeed’s Anthony Cormier whether he had seen the evidenced in his report.
“Not personally,” Cormier said. “The folks we have talked to — two officials we have spoken to are fully, 100 percent read into that aspect of the Special Counsel’s investigation.”
In other words, this is simply another anonymously sourced bombshell, of the variety that passes for “journalism” in 2019, but is really anti-Trump propaganda promulgated by the mainstream press, which is in charge of public relations for the Democratic Party.
The co-author of the story, Jason Leopold, was scrutinized for incorrect reporting which led to retractions in 2002 while he was employed at Salon, and in 2006 he incorrectly reported that Karl Rove had been indicted.
“He was in trouble for perhaps claiming to have sources he really didn’t have. His stories didn’t wash. Executive directors and editors have had to apologize after some of his big blockbuster stories,” Camerota said in the interview with Cormier.
Despite the reputation of the story’s author, and the flimsiness of the source, BuzzFeed hit the publish button.
“Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. ‘Make it happen,”’the sources said Trump told Cohen,” the report said.
“Bombshell” news stories, including CNN’s false report that Donald Trump Jr. colluded with Wikileaks to obtain information that had not yet been made public, and NPR’s false story that Trump Jr. lied to the Senate abut Trump Tower Moscow, have a way of quietly being corrected after left wing news consumers get their dose of anti-Trump propaganda.
This is a calculated tactic, described at great length in my upcoming book, “Enemies: The Press vs. The American People,” which will be on sale on July 16, and you should all order when it becomes available for pre-sale.

CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
