The Liberal Media Is Deflecting HARD On This FISA Memo


The left was ready with all manner of denial and deflection, even before the now-infamous Nunes memo was published Friday morning alleging that top DOJ and FBI officials obtained a FISA warrant under false pretenses and using a DNC-funded (and factually deficient) dossier against Trump to spy on former Trump advisor Carter Page.

Here's Chuck Todd on MSNBC, upset he wasn’t given more time to come up with a pro-left spin on the whole debacle.

Not a good look by the House GOP to release cherry picked excerpts through friendly media outlets in order to build a narrative. Only reinforces the partisan look to all this. A truly nonpartisan act would have been a complete release without cherry picks

WATCH: @chucktodd on memo release: GOP is making their case look worse because they're only releasing the memo to partisan, friendly media outlets

"This is what a campaign would do ... not something done by someone who cared about the rule of law."

— MSNBC (@MSNBC) February 2, 2018


JUST IN: Daily Beast's @woodruffbets reports that the memo was written by Kash Patel, a former DOJ lawyer.

"In some corners it's know as the Kash memo."

This ridiculous interpretation of what just happened:


The Republican Party...
has attacked the FBI and DOJ...
to effectively take Russia's side...
in their cyberattack on our democracy.

Then there’s this Daily Beast columnist, who thinks top FBI officials using a DNC-funded dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant against an American and hiding their sources from a FISA judge is shrugs-o-plenty.

Wow. This Nune memo is even less impressive than I thought. All these mouth-breathing idiots who called this worse than Watergate just got clowned.

Just CNN, defending using blatantly biased sources.

"Informants are not always as clear as the snow. Just the opposite," @GloriaBorger points out on @CNN. "You can get good info from sources who come at you with a bias." (I would just add: Journalists do that every day)

This NYT reporter, who thinks the FBI spying on an American citizen using a deceptively-obtained FISA warrant obtained using info paid for by a rival campaign only matters if the public knows…which negates the entire point of a secret FISA warrant.

Wait so the memo just says that the allegations in the dossier prompted a secret investigation into the Trump campaign...which was not disclosed to the public and did not influence the election?

— Jose A. Del Real (@jdelreal) February 2, 2018

This attempt by the LA Times to pooh-pooh the FBI flat-out lying to a FISA court.


We're not sure that a FISA judge would feel the same, guys.

While the total fallout from the Nunes memo remains to be seen, one thing's for sure: the left-wing media's still far more worried about their narrative than reporting facts.

Must be just another Friday.
