Conway to CNN: You Don’t Cover Russia ‘Now That the Shoe Is on the Other Foot

by Charles Russell, Russia Insider:

CNN suddenly lost all interest in stories tying US presidential candidates to Russia

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Friday rebuked the media for not covering a controversial deal that gave Russia control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, arguing the press was “obsessed” with Moscow when the main story concerned potential Russian ties to President Donald Trump.

Conway sparred with CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota about U.S. relations with Russia, focusing on the sale of a Canadian uranium mining company, Uranium One, to Russia’s Atomic Energy Agency, Rosatom, that was approved by the Obama administration in 2010.

The White House counselor first said that she wanted to talk about the current opioid epidemic in the United States, which Trump declared a public health crisis on Thursday, before addressing the Uranium One deal.

“Well, first of all, the president is not worried about Uranium One. The people who should be worries about Uranium One are the people who benefited from it,” Conway said. “His spouse didn’t go make a half-a-million-dollar speech in Russia while he was secretary of state, then turn around and be part of the decision-making process for them to get 20 percent of our rights. He wasn’t secretary of state or president at the time when Russian folks were trying to infiltrate the State Department and get an advantage for this particular deal.”

Conway was referencing how former President Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees and the Clinton Foundation received millions in donations from parties interested in the uranium deal while Hillary Clinton presided on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a government body that approved the agreement.

Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit the Clinton Foundation, the Hill reported last week, adding that, according to FBI and court documents, “federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings, and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.”

Camerota asked Conway whether Trump wants the former FBI informant to testify, noting, “Clearly he has some interest.”

The Justice Department has given the informant the green light to testify before Congress, CNN reported.

“Shouldn’t you?” Conway responded. “Shouldn’t we all? CNN is so vested in Russia, Russia, Russia, don’t you want to hear from everybody now? Or are we just going to drop the word Russia forever morning because it gets a little too close to the woman who ran last time?”

“We have talked about this for the last year so let’s at least close the loop, can’t we?” Conway added. “And look at what the Clinton campaign and the Democrats did.”

Camerota pressed Conway on what about the uranium deal bothered her if the deal should have been struck.

“Zero,” Conway said. “What bothers me it is that we can’t get all of you who have been obsessed about Russia, Russia, Russia to cover it now that the shoe is on the other foot.”

Huge news breaking in the Clinton/Steele Dossier scandal related to Fusion GPS. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Fake News is refusing to cover these developments.

The Top 5 Censored News Stories of 2018

by Vic Bishop, Activist Post:

We all know that the corporate media has no interest in shedding light on certain societal issues, and it seems that many people are awakening to the reality that if we want to know the truth, we have to go out and find it for ourselves. 2018 was a remarkable year in this regard, because tech giants and major media began openly censoring social media and de-platforming anti-establishment voices and media organizations.

Censorship of the news is as old as government itself, and for last 40 years, watchdog groups have kept a record of each year’s most censored, under-reported, and important issues. Project Censored keeps this tradition alive with its end-of-year report.

Former CNN Producer Torches Acosta: You’re ‘Truly Embarrassing’ And Confirm Anti-Trump Media Bias

by Matt Vespa, Townhall:

Leah covered this earlier this afternoon, but CNN’s Jim Acosta once again embarrassed himself at a White House event, where we celebrated the six-month anniversary of the tax reform package becoming law; a law that has formed the foundation for our rapid economic growth. As he left the podium, Acosta shouted if the president would “stop calling the press the enemy of the people.”

Facebook blocks pages with TENS OF MILLIONS of views after CNN reports their ties to RT

from RT:

Facebook has suspended several accounts operated by Maffick Media without prior warning, right after CNN ran a report about the company’s perceived ties to the Kremlin.

In what seems to be a new step in the social media giant’s fight against perceived ‘Russian propaganda’, Facebook took down, without prior notice, several pages offering video content. The social media network said it would ask the administrators of SoapboxBack Then and Waste-Ed to disclose their “Russian affiliations.”

Nolte: Watch Media Serially Lie About Steele Dossier Being ‘Corroborated’

by John Nolte, Breitbart:

This supercut of the establishment media serially lying to the American people with their knowingly false claims about the Steele Dossier having been “corroborated” is, unfortunately, not at all unbelievable.

Good heavens, what a group of pathetic, grasping, unprincipled, unscrupulous, underhanded liars the media have become, as evidenced in this video by Grabien’s Tom Elliott.


from SGTreport:

You Tube has abandoned the meritocracy that once made it a great place for creators to flourish and build an audience with engaging, quality content on a level playing field. Today, Google’s You Tube has become a place ruled by corporate nepotism where the old guard dinosaur media will be propped up by algos, advertising and GIVEN an audience they longer deserve. You Tube is fast becoming a Kakistocracy.

Cracks Appear in Mainstream Media’s ‘Perpetual War’ Machine

by Robert Bridge, Strategic Culture:

As historians know, events of great significance are sometimes put into motion by some seemingly irrelevant occurrence.  This week’s shot across the bow of the mainstream media by one of its erstwhile members probably won’t trigger a stampede for the exits, but it did provide for a timely wake-up call.

Although probably no more harmless than the fluttering of a butterfly’s wings deep inside the Amazon rainforest, news that veteran journalist William M. Arkin severed relations with NBC over its relentless pro-war, anti-Trump narrative was exactly the message the omnipotent media kings needed to hear as attacks on alternative (i.e. conservative) voices have reached totalitarian proportions.
