The Wall Street Journal, New York Post, and the Daily Mail, among other news outlets, published stories based on research from Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer revealing that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta’s firm Joule Unlimited received millions from a Putin-connected Russian government fund.
And despite the GAI report’s wide-ranging news coverage, missing from the pack were left-wing press shops. Among the New York Times, CNN, NBC, CBS, Washington Post, LA Times, POLITICO — not a single one has covered the bombshell revelation or reported asking Podesta for a comment on his involvement in Joule Unlimited.
This media blackout persists, oddly, after “John Podesta” catapulted to the top of Facebook North America’s treading topics list on Monday, thanks to Schweizer’s new Russia revelations.
It’s obvious that these mainstream media firms — namely, CNN, NYT, and POLITICO — have no problem covering Trump-Putin stories. They’ve done so, repeatedly, over several news cycles.
Do these alarming facts detailed in the 56-page GAI report not warrant a question from Hillary Clinton, a candidate seeking America’s highest office? Or course they do.
That John Podesta’s name was trending among America’s most popular news items on the world’s largest social media platform is evidence of immense interest from the public and, presumably, journalists.
