News Outlets Still Peddling CNNís Debunked Sciutto Russia Story

The Daily Caller
Shelby Talcott
September 10, 2019 3:41 PM ET

excerpt:

  • Several outlets have not issued corrections or updates on articles about Trump being partially responsible for the decision to extract a high-level Kremlin source.

  • CNN first reported the story, alleging Trumpís lax handling of classified information was to blame, and the NYT later debunked this claim.

  • Business Insider updated its story after the Daily Caller News Foundation reached out, but the article still does not include the NYT finding that the media, not Trump, was responsible.


Several outlets have yet to issue corrections to stories reporting President Donald Trumpís alleged lax handling of classified information led to the decision to extract a high-level Kremlin source.

The dubious headlines all lead back to the first reported story from CNNís Jim Sciutto and a single anonymous source on which he based the allegation.

The New York Times broke the spine of Scuittoís central thesis with a later story Monday outlining how the CIA first attempted to extract the asset before Trump took office in 2016. The Times report also notes that there ďwas no public evidenceĒ Trump ďendangered the source.Ē

ďBut former intelligence officials said there was no public evidence that Mr. Trump directly endangered the source, and other current American officials insisted that media scrutiny of the agencyís sources alone was the impetus for the extraction,Ē the NYT article reads.

So, the gist of the story is the media's lying about Trump, eh? Reminds of a recent poll showing how his popularity is waning as the threat of a recession grips the nation...

GMA was still running it with Martha Radditz trying to give it some "gravitas". Right after they announced the poll saying Trump's approval is under 40% all due to the recession and the top five Socialists candidates all beat him. So it's obviously over for the President.

Russia investigated disappearance of suspected US spy as possible murder
Oleg Smolenkov hadn’t been seen after he went on holiday in 2017, but Russian authorities concluded he had fled abroad

The CIA Russian spy drama currently gripping Washington has taken a new turn as Russian media reported that a suspected US mole inside the Kremlin was a member of Vladimir Putin’s administration who disappeared in 2017 and was initially thought to have been murdered.

Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, confirmed the man, Oleg Smolenkov, had worked for the Kremlin but played down his importance, insisting he was a low-level employee who had been fired two years ago.

The Russian news site Daily Storm reported in September 2017 that Smolenkov, who had once worked in the Russian embassy in Washington, had not been seen since he went on holiday with his wife and three children to Montenegro in June of that year. The Russian authorities first investigated the disappearance as a possible murder but then became convinced that Smolenkov was still alive and living abroad.

Every post is nothing more than him trying to get a rise out of people. He is completely worthless here as a poster. Even him being a cyber piŮata has become boring.

I wish we had better leftists here. The ones remaining have not lived up to expectations.

I find it fascinating that a major news network just doesnít get how they are driving themselves down in the ratings.

These are supposedly educated people. Yet, they just canít seem to help themselves.

My take is that they know if they report the news objectively, it helps Trump. And they just canít have that.

Yeah, I know. But his usefulness has worn thin. Weíve had good members leave because of him being allowed to troll freely.

Plus, I wonder how many decide not to sign up because of his constant trolling. He is not good for the site and not good for the brand.


If he was an employee of mine, I would have fired him long ago. His type causes others to leave.

No.

Also not a coincidence? That this emergency exfiltration took place in the weeks after Trump fired the FBI Director in charge of the counter-intelligence investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign; then revealed to NBC News that the "Russia thing" was on his mind when he fired the FBI Director; then disclosed classified information to Russian officials in a private meeting in the Oval Office where he said he had been under "great pressure" because of the investigation, which he said had been relieved due to the firing of the FBI Director.

I've often questioned re-subscribing on account of him.
