It’s been more than two weeks since the release of the Durham report put the final nail in a long-running panic over President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin’s relationship with Russia, fueled largely by the media. But organizations like NewsGuard, which tout themselves as unbiased media watchdogs, seem to pay little attention.
The Durham report concluded that the evidence of “Russian collusion” was so thin that there was no reason the FBI would even launch an investigation into Donald Trump.
Special Counsel John H. Durham said the FBI had “unanalyzed and uncorroborated raw information,” “predisposition to launch an investigation against Mr. Trump,” and “addressing previous issues, including possible attempted He accused the investigator of deciding on the investigation based on “a noticeable deviation from the It is a foreign election interference plan aimed at the Clinton campaign. ”
Breitbart News has reached out to NewsGuard to obtain a verdict on the Durham coverage. Will this put an end to questions about the legitimacy of President Trump’s Russia collusion allegations? If not, what do you need?
And if so, how does NewsGuard, which is supposed to exist to inform consumers about the credibility of news publishers, about the magnitude of the media’s failure in this article that has so much impact on American politics? Will the public be properly informed?
Not to mention the failure of the Pulitzer Prize Committee that awarded the prize. new york times and washington post They received the highest award in journalism for their work in fueling panic in Trump and Russia.
NewsGuard did not provide Breitbart News with a response to these inquiries. There is also little recognition of the magnitude of failures in media scrutiny of the press.
New York Times, The company continues to support Russiagate coverage, earning a perfect score of 100 out of 100 from NewsGuard. in the evaluation of New York Times, Newsgard noted that the paper won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of “Russia’s influence in the 2016 presidential election,” but did not mention the Durham coverage or the broader collapse of the Trump-Russia collusion scandal. not
that review Washington Post A little more transparency in the paper’s acknowledgment of its failure to report on the unreliable Steele Dossier, a widely-reported media-reported fabricated report that President Vladimir Putin collected threatening materials about Trump. is increasing. Despite this big mistake, washington post It also has a perfect 100-point rating from NewsGuard. So did the now-defunct BuzzFeed News, which first reported the document.
As Breitbart News previously reported, the legitimate publishers that tend to get low ratings from NewsGuard are conservative news sites that have exposed partisan media narratives like Russiagate, Media outlets like Hunter Biden’s laptop are discrediting or reporting stories you want to ignore.
Breitbart News has a 49.5% rating from NewsGuard. Fox News has an audience rating of 69.5 percent. audience 62 percent. The Federalist Party has just 12.5% of the vote.
NewsGuard co-founder Stephen Brill personally contributed to the long-running media hysteria about “Russian interference” on a CNBC broadcast just before the 2020 election, speculating: new york post Hunter Biden’s laptop story could have been a “Russian hoax.”
In an earlier comment to Breitbart News, NewsGuard general manager Matt Skibinski defended Brill’s comments about Hunter Biden’s laptop problem.
“Steve Brill said censorship by major tech platforms new york post He argued that the article about Hunter Biden’s laptop was misguided and that social media platforms should not have prevented him from posting and sharing the article. He said, “It doesn’t matter what I think. The point is that people should be able to read.” [the story] And they can judge by reading and comparing what the New York Post says to what many other media outlets say. ”
Republicans are fed up with protests that the News Guard, which is taxpayer-funded through the Pentagon, is nonpartisan.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-California), who has pledged to investigate Pentagon funding, called the NewsGuard “a liberal organization funded by liberal groups…”. You are trying to discredit conservative information. Rep. Jim Banks (R., Indiana), who until recently chaired the Republican Commission of Inquiry, accused the Newsguard of “extreme partisan bias.”
