Also if Muller being insulted about his buddy or his relationship with Comey affects the outcome of the case, he should be fired too because that's the exact opposite of how justice works.

Of course. Speaking of Justice, how about commenting on the actual content of the bombshell instead of focusing on who published it.

Trump admits he fires Comey specifically because of the Russia probe. On a scale of 1 to 10, how's that sit on your justice scale?

I can't confirm an anonymous leak. That's actually the main reason why I think they should have chosen a better outlet if they are genuine.

Quote:
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”
The American official could be Kathy Davis for all I know. I'm just saying don't put all of your money on this horse just yet.

NYT has a corporate and pro-establishment bias that's inherent in the very way media works in the 21st century

The partisanship is really the result of the right moving way outside the lines

It's a result $$$$, hands down. Who has time for nuance or subtlety? Just tell me what I already know, journalist dorks.

Sean Spicer released a statement where he didn't deny what Trump said at all. He can't. It's an official record at this point.

His spin is that it's all about Trump trying to build up relations with Russia, and that the leak itself is the big story.

Obstruction of Justice is lurking around the corner.

And now Trump is on this huge overseas junket and he's going to have to be dealing with reporters shouting out questions about Russia rather than what he wants the visit to be about.

Numerous talking heads are saying there's going to be some very tense meetings behind closed doors with the officials he's meeting with over what's gone down the past 10 days and how much they can trust Trump and his administration.

Mainstream Media is about "Manufacturing Consent" as Chomsky put it

If you ignore all his politics, and only read one of his books that's the one I consider essential

Meh, it could potentially be a weapon but it's no smoking gun.

Hearsay =/= smoking gun

Like, ever.

There's no reason to believe that it's true and equally no reason to believe that it isn't. I'm just so sick of the media breathlessly repeating things without verifying them just because it makes Trump or whoever they don't like look bad.
