A sensational Buzzfeed article accusing Donald Trump of instructing Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow has been proven to be fake news, with Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself releasing a statement attesting to its inaccuracy.
Many personalities associated with mainstream media had become enamored with the story, suggesting that it was the long-sought smoking gun that would lead to Donald Trump’s impeachment and removal from office. A running count of calls for Trump’s impeachment on CNN and MSNBC reached more than 200 individual instances, on Friday alone.
Instead, the contents of the article have dismissed as inaccurate by federal law enforcement figures investigating the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory. Somewhat hilariously, it appears that the theory that would lead to Trump’s impeachment in the minds of progressives has been shot down by the hero of their own fan fiction, Robert Mueller himself.
Establishment-aligned media was quick to cast blame for the fake news story on their own, in several cases targeting Buzzfeed for its publication and circulation.
CNN’s in-house tattletale Oliver Darcy also expressed a desire to see the fake news network distanced from Buzzfeed’s report- despite running eagerly with the story and promoting it vigorously.

Buzzfeed sought to defend its own reporter, Jason Leopold, from CNN’s accusations, publishing a statement claiming that the network was unfairly attacking him and stating that his reporting was somehow accurate despite being rejected by Mueller.
Coverage of the story’s collapse also seemed to take a decidedly negative approach towards Special Counsel Mueller himself- possibly representing the end of his reputation on the left as an imminent savior set to remove Trump from office at any moment. CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that he “hadn’t done any favors to the media” by debunking the report- as if the former FBI Director was obligated to let the lie slip as a favor to the fake news media.
In fact, Buzzfeed’s fake report is simply the latest in a long line of sensational Trump-Russia stories from mainstream outlets floating an “unconfirmed” or anonymous source about supposed collusion, usually warranting immediate impeachment.
In a remarkably similar scenario, ABC News correspondent Brian Ross was demoted and suspended after an earlier sensational fake report accusing Trump of requesting direction from unspecified Russians during his Presidential campaign. Ross had spun the claim wildly from its original context, in which the President sought to conduct diplomacy with Russia after being elected.
Should Americans expect the Fake News media to learn from its enduring pattern of sensational lies and fake reports about Trump and Russia? Probably not.
Should Americans expect mainstream media to fall into the same trap again and again of circulating sensational and easily-debunked Trump-Russia “bombshells” until losing all credibility with the American people?
CNN, MSNBC and Buzzfeed seem to be working overtime to answer that question with a resounding “yes!”
Fox News Castigates Former ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ Writer to Satisfy the Left-Wing Mob
Blake Neff is finished at Fox News.
Fox News is throwing former “Tucker Carlson Tonight” writer Blake Neff under the bus after he was forced to resign for writing politically incorrect posts on an online message board.
CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace released a groveling statement to appease the left-wing mob in which they said that no “racist, misogynistic and homophobic” behavior would be accepted at their company.
“We learned that now former employee Blake Neff, a writer on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight,’ made horrendous and deeply offensive racist, sexist and homophobic comments under a pseudonym on the forum AutoAdmit,” Scott and Wallace wrote in a memo released to all FOX News Media employees.
“We want to make abundantly clear that FOX News Media strongly condemns this horrific racist, misogynistic and homophobic behavior. Neff’s abhorrent conduct on this forum was never divulged to the show or the network until Friday, at which point we swiftly accepted his resignation,” Scott and Wallace added. “Make no mistake, actions such as his cannot and will not be tolerated at any time in any part of our work force.”
FOX News host Howard Kurtz also piled on during the Sunday edition of “MediaBuzz,” in which the host made it clear that Neff’s bawdy posts under a pseudonym have effectively unpersoned the writer, who will now be vilified forevermore.
“What Neff posted anonymously over five years is very ugly stuff, such as racist jokes including the N-word, derogatory slurs for gays and lesbians, denigrating the Mormon religion and mocking a woman’s dating life,” Kurtz said.
Big League Politics has reported on Carlson’s emergence as the voice of law-abiding Americans during a time when few have the courage to speak out against widespread leftist terror:
Tucker Carlson broke down the left-wing claim that America has a massive and institutional policing problem on his show on Wednesday night, pointing out that police violence has consistently declined against both black and white suspects every year within the last decade.
Tucker pointed out the circumstances of the 10 police shootings of unarmed African Americans in the United States in 2019, pointing out that in some instances the officers were attacked, and in five of the instances the officers were criminally charged. Any death is a tragedy, but the 10 shootings of unarmed black Americans are far lower in comparison to the 19 shootings of unarmed whites.
In any nation as populous as the United States, a certain level of law enforcement abuses and crimes will be inevitable. That doesn’t mean it’s the widespread epidemic that the liberal intelligentsia and race rioters have claimed police violence to be.
“Either way, this is a very small number in a country of 325 million people. This is not genocide… It is not even close to genocide. In fact, the number of police killings is dropping. In 2015, during Barack Obama’s presidency, 38 unarmed black Americans and 32 whites were killed by police. Overall totals have fallen since then, and they’ve fallen far more dramatically for African American men.”
Tucker pointed out that murder rates within the black community itself pale in comparison to the numbers of blacks killed during interactions with police.
“One final number for you, because it matters… In 2018, 7,407 African Americans were murdered in the United States. If 2019 continues on a similar trajectory, that means for every unarmed African American shot to death by police, more than 700 were murdered by someone else. Usually by someone they know.”
“Is our nation being ripped apart by a total and complete lie- a provable lie? A lie used by cynical media manipulators and unscrupulous politicians?“
The crucifying of Neff by the left-wing mob, enabled by the cowardly acquiescing of globalists at Fox News, is likely being done to hurt Carlson’s show and slow its power as a cultural force. Carlson is expected to address the controversy on tonight’s show.
