HOW Fake is Fake News? The Media Published Over 500,000 Stories About Russia Collusion

Now that we know the Trump-Russia “collusion” story the media has been obsessed with for two years was all a hoax, exactly how many stories did they put out about it? Over a HALF MILLION!

Axios reports that, Since May 2017, 533,074 web articles have been published about Russia and Trump/Mueller,” which in turn has generated “245 million interactions — including likes, comments and shares — on Twitter and Facebook.” These findings were determined by Axios by compiling data from social-media analytics company NewsWhip.

Think about it. The same liberal mainstream media that constantly mocks conservative news as not credible or unreliable, has now published over 500,000 stories that have generated nearly 250 million social media interactions and they STILL think we should take them seriously?

The mainstream media has proven themselves to be the biggest conspiracy theorists out there.

How About TV Time?

It gets worse, though.

According to the Media Research Center, major media gave 2,284 minutes of coverage to the Russia probe.

“From January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) through March 21, 2019 (the last night before special counsel Robert Mueller sent his report to the Attorney General), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts produced a combined 2,284 minutes of “collusion” coverage, most of it (1,909 minutes) following Mueller’s appointment on May 17, 2017,” MRC reports (emphasis theirs).

“That’s an average of roughly three minutes a night, every night, for an astonishing 791 days — a level of coverage normally associated only with a major war or a presidential election,” MRC notes.

Astonishing indeed. Shameful, too.

The Fake News Media Won’t Stop!

As if that wasn’t bad enough, fake news outlets like CNN are STILL CAMPED OUT outside Robert Mueller’s office. As The Political Insider reported Monday:

CNN’s Evan Pérez said Mueller was spotted dressing down at the office,” reports The Week. “On Thursday, CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz noted that Mueller didn’t leave for lunch as he usually does.”

Heavy stuff, indeed.

“And on Friday, it seemed Mueller didn’t even show up — the biggest special counsel news of the day until the Department of Justice confirmed Mueller had wrapped his report completely,” The Week notes.

Hopefully, they will discover if Mueller ate lunch in his office or maybe what color his underwear is? What is his favorite movie? How does he like his steak cooked?

When will these reporters go away? IT’S OVER!

This is a new low for the media from which they might never recover. Conservative news is needed more than ever to inform readers based on fact and not partisan witch hunts.

And who knows what the next media Trump witch hunt will be. Stay tuned to The Political Insider for the facts and only the FACTS.
