GREAT MOMENTS IN GASLIGHTING: CNN’s Brian Stelter: It’s ‘False’ and ‘Ludicrous’ that the Media Colluded with Clinton Campaign.
Wow, where would the public get the wacky, kooky notion that CNN was colluding with the Democrats?

UPDATE: “CNN’s Chris Cuomo told viewers it is illegal for them to possess emails leaked by the website WikiLeaks, and as a result they could not read them and had to rely entirely on the media to learn about their content…Even if downloading the emails were illegal, that is totally irrelevant in this case, because nobody has to download the WikiLeaks emails in order to read them. They’re all freely available to read on a website anybody can access.”
But Cuomo’s remarks dovetail perfectly with Iowahawk’s observation that “Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving,” and Jim Treacher’s line that in the 21st century, the profession “is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats.”
