We’re pretty certain this comes as no surprise, but it’s instructive to take stock yet again of how selectively critical the leftist media is concerning its one-sided bias.
The coverage of the Donald, Jr. Russia scandal is like watching a ton of red meat tossed into a shark tank.
The problem is the media conducted a symphony of crickets when a nearly identical story was exposed by Wikileaks about Hillary’s campaign.
In 2015 as Hillary was gearing up for her run, an email was sent by a staffer explaining that her research team successful killed a Bloomberg story that revealed how a speech delivered in Moscow by Bill Clinton.
The speech — for which he was compensated half a million bucks — was a quid-pro-quo for Hillary’s opposition to an anti-Russia bill in Congress.
The media’s criticism has registered precisely zero on the outrage meter; the silence is deafening.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
A leaked email from Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign previously published by Wikileaks may take on new significance because it relates to key issues brought up in media reports about Donald Trump Jr. and a meeting with a Russian lawyer.
The email in question was purportedly sent by Jesse Lehrich, a Clinton campaign foreign policy spokesman and member of the campaign’s rapid response communications team.
In the correspondence, which has not yet received news media attention and remains searchable in the WikiLeaks archive, Lehrich writes that the campaign “killed a Bloomberg story” attempting to link Clinton’s opposition to the anti-Russia legislation known as the Magnitsky Act to a speech that Bill Clinton delivered in Moscow for $500,000.
The May 21, 2015 message, titled, “May 21st Nightly Press Traffic Summary,” was purportedly sent by Lehrich to the campaign’s “HRCRapid” Google group, and was captured by the leaking of campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account emails.
Lehrich’s list of press actions carried out by the campaign included this:
With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC’s opposition to the Magnitsky bill to a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow.
Based on Peter Schweizer’s bestselling book Clinton Cash, the New York Times in April 2015 reported on Clinton’s $500,000 speech in Moscow and its possible ties to a deal in which the Russians gradually assumed control of the Uranium One mining company.
The newspaper reported “the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.”
