New York Times opinion columnist Bret Stephens admitted in a snarky article headlined “I Was Wrong About Trump Voters” that Democrats’ ploy to undermine Donald Trump was truly a hoax.
While most of the corrupt press and institutions such as the Pulitzer Prize board still refuse to acknowledge that the discredited Steele dossier and every piece of information Hillary Clinton’s campaign fed to the corporate media about Trump colluding with Russia was hogwash, Stephens finally acknowledges that the Republican was unfairly targeted.
“To this day, precious few anti-Trumpers have been honest with themselves about the elaborate hoax — there’s just no other word for it — that was the Steele dossier and all the bogus allegations, credulously parroted in the mainstream media, that flowed from it,” Stephens wrote.
Six years after the Steele dossier was commissioned by Fusion GPS which was hired by Clinton’s campaign lawyers’ firm, someone in the propaganda press has finally granted what real reporters such as The Federalist’s “Spygate” experts have known all along.
Stephens’ article is far from the apology the headline portrays it to be. But in conceding that the corporate media, in addition to intelligence agencies and the Democrat party, waged a war on Trump, the NYT writer has done more than any other journo or outlet that spread lies and misinformation about the nonexistent collusion and “pee tapes.”
Unfortunately, it’s not enough. Stephens, who has been in the media world for decades, does not apologize nor take any responsibility for participating in the media’s collusion hoax factory. He shows no remorse for writing articles that affirmed the Steele dossier, nor does he acknowledge that his employer is guilty of mass publishing lie-ridden stories about Trump and the Russians.
If a guy who was complicit in the Democrats’ scheme to keep Trump out of office is admitting the reality of the Russia collusion story is that there was no collusion, every outlet that has refused to admit any error is even worse than he is.
