CNN's "Dirty Little Secret:" Network Waits 'til After Trump Loss to Admit He's Been Tough on Russia, After Reporting the Opposite for Years
"CNN’s Fareed Zakaria recently acknowledged 'the dirty little secret' that the Trump administration 'was pretty tough on the Russians. They armed Ukraine, they armed the Poles. They extended NATO operations and exercises in ways that even the Obama Administration had not done. They maintained the sanctions.'

Unlike Other Knowledge Industries, the News Media Refuse to Deal with Major Misses: "The media’s failure to report that Donald Trump might well win the 2016 election is a debacle for America’s intelligentsia on the order of the 2008 mortgage crisis and 2003 Iraq WMD 'slam dunk.' These fiascoes all stemmed from 'knowledge management organizations' rotted with intellectual bias, groupthink, and perverse incentives. All three featured decision-makers and intellectual cheerleaders from similar social and educational milieus. Yet only the mainstream media have so far evaded tangible consequences, or real self-assessment, for their historic stumble." Read the report here.
