Never, Ever Forget the Guardian/Politico Psyop Against WikiLeaks

“The claims made by Luke Harding and the Guardian [that Paul Manafort met with Julian Assange] will never be proven true, and they know it. … Their fake story was then passed along by news outlets everywhere, including an MSNBC panel which hilariously kept informing its readers that if this Guardian report is confirmed it would be the first ever actual evidence linking Trump to WikiLeaks in a meaningful way. …
“We must keep bringing up the undeniable fact that the Guardian published false claims about a longtime target of western intelligence and defense agencies, then was backed up by a longtime insider from one of those agencies who was permitted to publish anonymously in an ostensibly unrelated outlet [Politico]. …”
Johnstone embeds a link to a tweet by Max Blumenthal referring to, well, typical MSNBC; namely, Ari Melber presenting “Collusion Bombshell” [re alleged Manafort meeting Assange].  Melber’s “expert” panel of three comes on at minute 4:15. Collectively, they proceed to exhaust the subjunctive mood (in its contrary-to-fact mode).
The following day Melber tweeted the following applause from MSNBC’s PR people:
“More Americans watched Chris, Rachel and Lawrence last night than *any other* news channels — Congrats to them and thanks for watching the reporting on MSNBC.”
Small wonder “most Americans” haven’t a clue about what’s really going on.
