Michael Tracey, originally one of the Young Turks and still a very outspoken anti-Trump reporter, has shown some of the integrity his colleagues lack by calling out their irrational and childish refusal to let go of the discredited and debunked Russian Collusion fantasy.
Tracey skillfully points out that no matter how many times it is proven false, the Russian Collusion conspiracy theory is bitterly clung to by Democrats and their media outlets. Ironically, Tracey points out how this shrill cult does nothing but help President Trump by making media critics look like hopelessly biased partisans. (Which they are, of course.)
Unafraid to name names and to post screen-captures of some of the loonier anti-Trump lies spread by his colleagues in the Democrats’ media, Tracey’s long threads documenting the dishonesty and delusion of alleged “reporters” are great. A link is below, but first some excerpts:
First off, quoting Matt Wolking about the lies of bug-eyed Democrat Adam Schiff:
-Lied about having evidence of collusion
-Leaked false info from confidential hearings
-Pushed partisan memo with false claims
-Met secretly with Michael Cohen to shape his testimony
-Met secretly with FusionGPS Glenn Simpson
-Sought dirt on Trump from foreign actors
A Michael Tracey tweet calling out EmptyWheel, an alleged “reporter” who claimed to have proof of collusion:
Hey @emptywheel, whatever happened to this bombshell evidence of collusion that you claimed to personally possess? Just wanted to check in on that.
Another Tracey tweet:
Throughout this ordeal, it’s been truly disturbing to watch otherwise intelligent people lapse into conspiratorial lunacy. After Mueller said no collusion, you’d think they would at least begin to self-reflect and change their behavior. Nope. They’re just getting worse
And much, much more! The entire article collects Michael Tracey’s remarks and commends him for his attempt at objectivity despite his antipathy for Trump and the Republican Party. (I share his hostility toward the Republicans, but not toward Trump, who is not really a Republican and is a de facto Third Party President.)
