Glenn Greenwald, a progressive journalist and editor of The Intercept, called out corporate mainstream media outlets such as MSNBC and CNN for their roles in propagating Russia-based conspiracies while on Tucker Carlson Tonight Thursday.
Greenwald is a left-of-center journalist who isn’t afraid to criticize establishment media for lies and dishonesty. From the beginning of the seemingly endless Russia probe, Greenwald pushed back on attempts from sponsored media personalities such as Rachel Maddow to depict Donald Trump and his presidency as controlled opposition puppeteered by Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin. The conspiracy theories, Greenwald asserted, were fuel for a hawkish project to create hostility between the United States and Russia without regards for the consequences.
In doing so, he became a target of fury from establishment Democrats and their associated media outlets. The New Yorker ran an article of the Brazilian resident known for his work with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden likening him to a conspiracy theorist.
Greenwald pointed out the unipolar bias of MSNBC and traditional liberal media in alleging Russia collusion conspiracies. Skeptics of the conventional narrative of a grand Trump-Russia conspiracy were largely blackballed from appearing on air, while “journalists” being fed information from Deep-state linked government officials peddled grand claims that have surfaced to be entirely and completely false.
Watch Greenwald’s segment with Tucker here:
“MSNBC should have their top hosts go before the cameras and hang their heads in shame.” That’s gotta hurt.
The Russia conspiracy will go on the enter the Hall of Fame of Fake News perpetrated by the establishment media corporations. But don’t expect them to learn their lesson this time, or anytime soon.

CRINGE: CNN State Media Opines of “Joe Biden’s Arms Embracing America”
CNN daytime host David Chalian spoke of Joe Biden in worshipful terms in a Tuesday segment, claiming that a display of lights intended to memorialize COVID casualties represented the 78-year old President-elect embracing the United States in his arms.
Chalian claimed that President Trump was disgraced, ignoring the fact that polls with a track record of accuracy in the 2020 election reveal the outgoing President’s approval rating is over 50%.
“Those lights that are just shooting out from the Lincoln Memorial… It’s almost like extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America. It’s a moment where the new President came to town and convened the country in this moment of remembrance, outstretching his arms.”
Is this the incoming President, or Chalian’s father? North Korean state propaganda would be jealous.
Joe Biden has opted for the light display in the absence of an inauguration crowd, with the incoming President eschewing a traditional inauguration on account of coronavirus concerns. It’s expected that Biden will speak of ‘unity’ in his Wednesday address, but such a goal is more easily attained through action than through words.
CNN is poised to take on the role of a state propaganda outlet, carrying water for the neoliberal establishment and the globalist elite. Figures within the mainstream media organization expect its ratings and audience to crumble and decline, no longer possessing a captivated liberal audience eager for content targeting President Trump with predictable hitpieces.
