Sharyl Attkisson, who believes that when she was a CBS reporter she was spied on by the U.S. government, finds it incredible that journalists don’t seem to care about the alleged abuse of the FISA system that led the government to spy on Carter Page.
“I’ve never in my lifetime seen open-government groups and journalists so uncurious and begging not to be told about alleged violations of citizens’ rights,” she said.
That’s because everything is all screwed up, see? We had a nice story going, see? It’s about Donald Trump and his collusion with the Russians, and if not, about his efforts to obstruct justice. See what I mean? THAT’S THE STORY DAMMIT BECAUSE TRUMP IS EVIL AND SO THAT’S THE STORY.
But whoa what’s this? The only evidence emerging of collusion with the Russians seems to involve Hillary Clinton. And now it appears that the Obama State Department, the FBI, the Clinton campaign, and even Obama himself may have colluded to dig up dirt on Trump and his campaign.
BUT THAT’S NOT THE STORY WE’RE DOING HERE, OKAY?
And please, don’t bring Obama into this. He would never do anything dishonest. He draws a red line against that sort of stuff.
See what I mean?
