The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

Fox News viewer surprised that Mueller hadn’t exonerated Trump on obstruction
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... bstruction

NBC News quoted Garnaat as follows:
Cathy Garnaat, a Republican who supported Amash and the president said she was upset about Amash’s position but wanted to hear his reasoning. She said that she will definitely support Trump in 2020 but that Tuesday night was the first time she had heard that the Mueller report didn’t completely exonerate the president.

“I was surprised to hear there was anything negative in the Mueller report at all about President Trump. I hadn’t heard that before," she said. “I’ve mainly listened to conservative news and I hadn’t heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated.”
In search of a bit more detail, the Erik Wemple Blog rang up Garnaat on Thursday. “I usually watch Fox News,” Garnaat told us, noting that she doesn’t tune in every night. That’s not all, however: She’ll occasionally check in with MSNBC and other outlets. “I just mainly like to focus on Fox [News],” particularly its evening fare, with Sean Hannity and other prime-time mainstays.

Explaining how she came to attend the town hall, Garnaat said this about coverage of the Mueller findings: “What I had heard about Trump in watching conservative news is that there wasn’t any foul play by him, nothing in the bad range,” she said. Indeed, Hannity said this on Fox News in the hours following the release of the redacted Mueller report, “The witch hunt is officially over. The Mueller report is out. And the president of the United States has been totally and completely vindicated.” Garnaat says it’s possible that she merely “missed” a show or segment in which the president’s exposure for obstruction was discussed.

Then she heard that Amash favored impeachment proceedings. “I was shocked and, frankly, ready to throw in the towel on Amash, but wanted to hear his side of the story. After I heard him speak I said, ‘I need to look into this myself. I need to read the Mueller report, especially the second volume,’ ” said Garnaat, who owns and manages rental housing. (Full disclosure: The Erik Wemple Blog sent Garnaat a link to the document.)

There’s a reason Garnaat tunes in to Fox News: She’s conservative and Christian, she says, and she doesn’t find her views represented well on other outlets. “I want to hear that side of the story, too, not just the liberal side. Fox News does bring in other points of view, but I do like the point of view that the moderators take,” she says. “I think liberals like to watch liberal news and conservatives like to watch conservative news. A person gravitates toward what he believes and trusts.”

Republicans’ successful campaign to protect Trump from Mueller’s report, in one quote
https://www.vox.com/2019/5/30/18646048/ ... port-amash

“I hadn’t heard that before,” she told NBC after the Tuesday town hall. “I’ve mainly listened to conservative news and I hadn’t heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated.”

That comment alone cements that Amash, in becoming the first and only Republican to call for impeachment, is fighting against an entire machine — from the elected leaders to sympathetic media outlets.
...
This dynamic has created two worlds: one where Trump is heroically defending himself against a liberal witch hunt, where there was “no collusion” and “no obstruction” — and the reality, where the nation’s highest law enforcement agency, after a nearly two-year investigation, outlined 10 instances in which Trump may have attempted to obstruct the special counsel’s work, as well as numerous connections the Trump campaign had with foreign actors.

Amash is a member of the party that’s trying to convince voters to live in the former world, where Trump can do no wrong. That goal is much easier when most of the information voters receive is filtered through conservative media, and not directly from the report itself. But after reading the Mueller report, Amash is explaining to his constituents why he feels he has to speak out.

So let me get this straight - the media colludes with EVERYONE who pays them, and establishment politicians accuse the new guy, Trump, of fucking everything up, which is then pushed by many media channels.

Sounds unbiased to me...

And that sounds like a red herring to me...

I guess you either believe Trump didn't sack Comey over 'this Russia thing' or Mueller just made it all up?

I believe that what Mueller and Barr said are what they said.

As to whether Trump sacked someone or other, who cares? The report is there to be read. If there is something impeachable about it, Nancy has her clear responsibility.

If, however, they were just making noise and trying to lie about the impeachable 'offenses', they will avoid actually impeaching, and just keep saying he should be impeached.

Watch her actions, not her drunken, slurring, deceptive, lifer-politician words.

I've seen the doctored video. I've also seen a LOT of video of her.

If she is NOT a drunken idiot, she will get right on that impeachment everyone wants. If she just shouts ineffectually, like a drunken lout, I guess that will be her crowning achievement.

It's hilarious how firmly many will defend lifelong parasites as long as they are on the political 'same side'.

Cool story, but you really don't know about pErvy's political leanings if you think he's on the side of the Democratic Party of the United States.

She's a fucking idiot, with nonsense spouting out of her wrinkled, old maw that doesn't need any 'video doctoring'. Did you hear her talking about D-Day?

Why would he leap to her defense? I suspect she is his side-piece, and she would stop taking it ass-to-mouth if he didn't speak up for her once in awhile.

But then again, it could be something else.

I'm not defending anyone, let alone anyone on my side (she's a right winger). I'm pointing out your gullibility.
