Too strong? OK, how about:
“A piss poor trio of fake news promoters?”
If you have been paying attention to all of the anti-Russia dung being spewed by the major American news outlets — and I’m not suggesting that you should — but if you have been, you may have noticed that in spite of all of the vitriol no one has seriously accused Vladimir Putin of mendacity or spreading falsehoods in his so-called “hack of the election.” I mean, no one is asserting that the “hacked” John Podesta/DNC emails that were supposed to have turned the tide for DTDuck were fakes. And, of course, that’s because the FBI has all of those emails, too, and so, as far as editors of the New York Times or Washington Post know, any attempt to mischaracterize the Wikileaked emails as frauds could get shoved right back down their throats. No, the so-called “fake news” is not about the email-leaks themselves; “fake news” is another issue: Russian propaganda, and more and more it is about propaganda generated about the primary purveyors of the “fake news” allegations: NYT and WaPo. It’s sort of like the way the real story about “antisemitism” has become more and more about the ridiculous way mal-semites call every goy walking an “antisemite.” [Go ahead, Uncle Abe, unload on me. It would flatter me and I could use the attention.
