I’m curious about your thoughts regarding the latest news that the Obama admin had been overreaching with their domestic surveillance (spying).
There is a media blackout regarding the matter. The only “real” news network that I found reporting it was FOX. Saw another link on WND.
The best synopsis I’ve encountered is the one I heard last night on the Mark Levin show:
He begins discussing the surveillance at the 1:18:00 mark. The breakdown of the overreach lasts just a few minutes.
I’d love to know what your thoughts are regarding this subject, but also the fact that this hasn’t become a mainstream concern. Is it too complex? My initial sense is that the intricacies of the scandal are hard to package in a two-minute news reel. But I’m also of the impression that the MSM does not care to discuss anything un-Russia or un-obstruction.May 26, 2017 at 6:02 am #2704
Yeah, I saw this on PJMedia. Looks like another case of government overreach, but because it happened under the Obama admin, most mainstream media sources (who have been trying to protect both Obama and Hillary from negative news) simply don’t report on it. It’s called “lying by omission”. By not reporting on it, ignoring it in a sense, they hope it’ll go away, or fall under the category of “not credible” because they’re the “gold standard” of journalism. And since they’re not reporting on it, it must be biased or FAKE NEWS. Unfortunately, for most people who rely on the mainstream that’s how it’ll be perceived.
And perception is everything.
This kinda’ thing has always gone on (from both sides of the political spectrum), but the contrast is just more stark nowadays. It’s sad really and, in my opinion, more evidence that we’re headed for some kind of civil war over the future of the country.
I’ll listen to the Mark Levin podcast, and maybe we can address this issue in a future podcast.May 29, 2017 at 10:27 pm #2706
A quick update, Brad. Apparently some big news is about to break about the Obama administration and NSA spying. Looks like things might start heating up on this issue. Stay tuned…May 31, 2017 at 12:28 am #2707
Hopefully I didn’t mis the big news today, haha (I didn’t notice any). Once again, the only person I’m hearing discuss this spying at any serious level is Mark Levin. I did see some WashPo stuff discussing Obama-Russia back channels, but nothing related to the spying.
I’m convinced that we’re witnessing a coup. The orchestration of what we’re seeing on the Left is scary. It’s as if marching orders are decided, distributed and then disseminated (by the media and top Democrat officials). You can watch the timestamps and phrasing of their headlines and social posts. It’s as if they say and speak the exact same at the very same time. Whether it’s “collusion” or “Kushner”… they’re all in lockstep, despite numerous contradictions and outright admissions of no crime being committed — by anyone! And where there is a crime??? No attention. Seth Rich… move along. Felony leakers… move along. Sean Hannity?!!?! Attack!
Speaking of Hannity, he’s pushing a Media Matters alternative today. Check out Media Equalizer for a good time and some laughs. I love the Maddow defense of Weiner-tweeted dick pics. Spoiler alert: she blames more hacking. SHOCKER, I KNOW.
Edit: Adam has to think I’m some crazy right-winger. I might be, although I’m trying to view things from a more un-tilted perspective, much as yourself. Lately, I like to say I’m rightly biased, because yeah… I lean right. And the more the Left embarrasses themselves, the more biased I become — rightfully.
