Katy Tur Gloats Journalists Purposefully 'Shot Down' Uranium One Stories During Campaign

Excerpt:

 

After conservative media forced the networks and liberal cable news to finally cover the latest FBI revelations over the Clinton Foundation’s financial dealings with Russia, they’ve changed tactics from ignoring the story, to dismissing it as bogus.

 

MSNBC host Katy Tur bragged on Wednesday’s Deadline: White House that the media were fully aware of the Uranium One story, during the campaign, but purposefully chose to ignore it.

 

Speaking to her fellow panel of liberals and Clinton defenders, Tur scoffed that President Trump repeatedly tried to bring up the Uranium One story on the campaign trail, but she, and her fellow journalists, wouldn’t take the bait.

 

Tur slammed the story as a “desperate” move by Trump since she admitted, it was a regular talking point from his campaign in 2015 and 2016, which the media refused to report on:

 

So long to bring this up, too, which is it's almost surprising.
Donald Trump brought up Uranium One and his ilk brought up Uranium One during the campaign and it was shot down so many times by me and other reporters in our own reporting.
And then it went dark. They didn't really bring it up again until recently.
It goes to show you how desperate they've become to push back on the special counsel in the Russia investigation and what has been coming out and dripping out from that.

*snip video*

 

Fellow guest Jeremy Peters of the New York Times also dismissed the story as “political catnip” for conservatives.

 

You know what it is Nicolle? I
t's the Clintons. They're political catnip for this type of conservative. You see it with the reaction to judge Moore. What about Bill Clinton? He had relations with an intern in the white house. They can't help themselves. Every time there is a Republican scandal, the answer is always, well, what did Bill Clinton do? What did Hillary Clinton do? You're seeing the same thing.

While Tur added that Trump was only bringing up it again because it was “politically expedient” for him to do so.

GAWD Democrats are slime.

 

This is just another perfect example of one of their standard tactics: Put something off for as long as possible, ignore it, avoid it, pretend it doesn't exist, dance all around it, change the subject, etc etc etc. Then after stretching that out for as long as they possibly can, and they can no longer avoid it, they use that long period of time they created as a 'point' of 'argument': "But that happened so long ago! Why are you still harping on it?"

 

Well I'll tell you why, sleazeball: It's because you refused to address it then, so we have to keep pounding it until you do finally address it. Even if it's years later.

 

Anybody who doesn't hate Democrats is a f*****g moron.

Appears to me that ms. tur just admitted to knowingly aiding and abetting a traitor, and she dimed out some fellow conspirators in the process. I guess that admission is good enough to justify the punishment for a traitor's co-conspirators. I surely hope that is meted out as soon as possible. She and her ilk have aided and abetted a known traitor in Hillary and those that were behind the uranium 1 debacle. All Americans are less safe because of those actions. ms. tur does not deserve to call herself a citizen of the U.S. any longer. At the very least she should have her citizenship stripped and be thrown out of the country. Preferably to the country she aided or to one of those nations where women are treated with the same respect as you'd give a dog.

 

It is a sad state of affairs within the U.S. that she would feel safe while boldly and proudly admitting to hiding a report that was about placing the U.S. in danger by conspiring to transfer ownership of a strategic asset, uranium, to an enemy nation. The nation's best interests are clearly not a priority for people like ms. tur. They should be removed from the U.S. so they may pursue whatever is their priority with whatever nation the love more. People that would knowingly endanger all of the people within the U.S. and its allies are no friends of America, and to do so for a reason as low as aiding a political party and protecting your favorite candidate are as despicable a reason as I can fathom. <_< Totally disgusting.

If there were any justice in this world about 1/2 of DC and about 1/2 of New York would be in jail for treason. The media, hollywood and government cabal are destroying this nation in order to form a more perfect socialist union, and they do not care who they destroy along the way to gain that power they all so crave.

Or is one of them. I guess that's being redundant though.

Journos believe two opposite things. First, that there are no facts, there are only competing narratives. Second, that their job as journos is "to speak truth to power." But, doesn't the first one mean that the "truth" they want to "speak to power" is just another competing narrative? Yes, it does. Therefore, they consider themselves successful when their own "competing narrative" drowns out the other competing narrative.

 

The objective question is whether Hillary Clinton did or did not compromise U.S. security by selling a Russian company control of 20% of U.S. uranium. It appears that she did, through the company called "Uranium One." So, why does Katy Tur take such pride in suppressing the story? Because she thinks her "competing narrative" defeated Trump's. I bet she expects a journalism prize for that and she might even get one.

All journalists need to rot in hell.

 

They are NOT reporters. There is a difference.

 

They don't report the news, they fabricate it, twist it and spin it into lies to manipulate people into their progressive agendas with propaganda.

 

These "journalists" all say that their job is "to change the world", not to report and inform people to events and facts.

Didn't used to be that way. Edward R. Murrow is an Icon. The lesser-known Clare Hollingworth, too.

 

IMHO, shift began with Cronkite and, to a lesser extent - Chet Huntley and David Brinkley. Shift was completed by the time of fictional Lou Grant (1977-1982))
