Journalistic malpractice: Ukrainegate exposes CNN & MSNBC propaganda (Video)

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss how the neoliberal, globalist mainstream media somehow keeps skipping the same 500 words of the Trump-Zelensky phone call, which just happens to be the core of the entire conversation…to get Ukraine to cooperate with the DOJ investigation into the Russiagate hoax, which includes looking into CrowdStrike and the DNC server hack that AG Barr has tasked John Durham of looking into.

Multiple outlets chopped up the transcript of President Donald Trump speaking with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, making it seem as though Trump was asking for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

A whistleblower complaint alleged the president had an inappropriate conversation with Ukraine. Trump released the call’s transcript Wednesday, which showed he asked Ukraine to look into CrowdStrike, a private security group the Democratic National Committee hired to look into Russian interference in their servers. Trump also asked Zelensky to look into the firing of a prosecutor who was looking into Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.

CNN, MSNBC and NPR among the news outlets edited out the CrowdStrike portion of the transcript, making it seem as though Trump’s focus of the phone call was to have Joe Biden’s son investigated. In fact, the request begins by asking Ukraine to look into meddling in the 2016 election.

“And then he says, quote, ‘I would like you to do us a favor,’” CNN’s Brianna Keilar said on “CNN Right Now” Wednesday. “The president asks Zelensky to dig up dirt on Biden and his son Hunter, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company while his dad was vice president.”

“Quote, ‘There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great,” she said.

What CNN failed to mention was that in between Trump saying, “I would like you to do us a favor,” is over 500 words of conversation, part of which talks about Ukraine looking into election meddling.

MSNBC peddled similar news, with correspondent Katy Tur saying Trump said, “Will you do me a favor and investigate Vice President Biden’s son?”

In an NPR article titled “Trump Asked Ukrainian President For ‘A Favor’ On Biden; DOJ Says No Charges,” the same altered transcript is peddled. The article included the “favor” sentence from Trump and immediately jumps to the portion where Joe Biden’s son is brought up.

Trump’s “favor” is regarding CrowdStrike. He said according to the transcript:

I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people. …The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it.

Later on, Trump asked Ukraine about Joe Biden’s son. Multiple outlets have reported it as though Trump asked about Hunter immediately following his request for a “favor.”

“The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great,” Trump said over 500 words after asking for a favor about looking into election meddling. “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it. … It sounds horrible to me.”

Op-eds in the WP typically contain all 3 of the above, so that’s a bit redundant.

Why being surprised that msm is chopping text/context when prosecutors and pencil neck are doing the same without provoking much outrage? The left is chopping your tongue, your wings, your balls and instead of protesting the conservatives seem to be asking for more chopping. I just discovered the Duran, I like it! Wake up MAGA folks and start kicking back! Chop their fingers till they take them out of your pockets, chop their tongues till they stop telling lies, chop their necks till they stop breathing your air…

The mainsewerstream fake media are under pressure…..they have been trying since 2015 to “get” Trump…and are still failing badly…and their “handlers” are very upset. The “woken” see right through them…and the brainwashed ignorant keep swallowing their drivel…standoff??? They continue to push the Big Lie and they have come to believe it themselves. They better watch out…many of their captive brainwashed audience may not be as stupid as they think and if they keep alluding to their stupidity by continuing in their deceitful ways…they may be in for a surprise…heck it is happening already viz a viz ratings…it would be relishing… Read more »

That Hunter is a real bum. We wanted him to sign some documents to make it look like he actually earned his keep but he was always either in a daze from snorting coke or fiddling the hookers we hired as his secretaries. Frankly, he’s just a pickpocket and the pocket in question was mine. At least he came cheap. I’ve spent more covering up MH17 or a week’s worth of Azov attacks than I had to on that bum. It’s ironic though, since most of the billion daddy released ended up in my offshore pockets anyway.

Is it true, Ihor, that you’re the only jew in history that has paid for monuments to Ukraine’s WWII nazi patriots out of his own pocket, well other than George Soros that is.

I’m pretty sure Zelensky’s also paid for some of those monuments already, out of the state budget, also known as IMF breadcrumbs. What a price to stay in power.

Time to add The Wilson Center to the list of shameless orwellian propaganda generators.

Comments on: “The fabrications kick off when we are informed that the notion that “Crimeans want to be part of Russia” is a “myth.” Jankowicz claims”

Right, lady……..and half a dozen western polling outfits publishing the opposite are all paid by the Kremlin. Don’t forget that little flourish to top it off.
