The Media Is Ignoring the Real Bombshell

Given their tendency to lean a hard left, it’s not in the mainstream media’s best interest to tell you EVERYTHING going on… because they want to “convince” you that their way is the only way.

That’s why key factors and revelations in events such as the FISA abuse memo get left out of their reporting. That’s why they try to focus on anything but major Republican key points. Their own “powers that be” (think DNC) still believe that form of media will win over the masses.

They seem to still not understand in today’s data-driven society, that almost no secrets last forever… that everything gets put out there… and that it’s shared with MILLIONS in the click of a button.

As Written and Reported By Guy Benson for Townhall:

We’ll bring you Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel’s tweetstorm in a moment, but I’ll take a stab at answering her question about the media right out of the gate.  Three possibilities: (1) The GOP hyped the Nunes memo, which quickly became the center of this whole firestorm — replete with counter-memos, FBI objections, etc.  The press followed the spotlight. (2) As we’ve been saying, there are so many complex pieces of this larger puzzle, following the plot is difficult.  It’s not just news consumers wondering, “which memo is this now?” — it’s many of the people trying to cover this drama, too.  The document in question here is a second, less redacted, version of a Senate memo that few people have even heard of. (3) The Senate memo, produced by non-bomb-throwers Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, is substantially more disruptive to the Democrats’ narrative than the Nunes document.  And the press generally prefers Democratic narratives to Republican ones because most journalists are liberals.

My guess is that some blend of all three factors helps explain why the Grassley/Graham memo has barely registered on the national radar, even after we’ve endured multiple high-octane news cycles starring Nunes and Schiff.  But on the substance, does Strassel have a point, or is this just the latest shiny object the right-wing is waving around to distract from “the real story,” now that the Nunes memowas arguably a bit of a dud?  Here’s her case:…….
