CNN's Brian Stelter: 'Pro-Trump Media Is Escalating The War On Robert Mueller'
The closer Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation gets to Donald Trump, the more insane the right wing media gets. Their reports are filled with conspiracy theories, rants about the "Deep State" and threats about rogue FBI agents out to take down the President. Turn on Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh or Alex Jones at any point and within minutes, you will be inundated with the most insane rants you have ever heard.
CNN's Brian Stetler had a great segment on Reliable Sources this Sunday about the avalanche of stories coming out of the right wing news vacuum and how they are meant to do one thing: sow confusion.
Here is what he had to say:
The pro-Trump media is escalating its war on Robert Mueller. One of their weapons is confusion. So, the challenge for you and for me is to refuse to be confused. Let's lay it all out here.
Almost every day there is at least one new revelation about how many people Robert Mueller has interviewed and how much the special counsel investigation has learned about the inner workings of Trump world. Mueller knows the president has repeatedly tried to pressure law enforcement officials and impede the investigation into Russian interference. So, leak by leak, like the ones that were there onscreen, it becomes clear Trump is in more and more of a precarious situation.
