1. Seth Meyers: Trump And His Allies Are Lying In The Exact Same Ways The Bush Administration Lied Us Into A Catastrophic War In Iraq Nearly 17 years Ago
2. Billionaires Freak Out About Elizabeth Warren And Bernie Sanders As Protectors Of The People & The Constitution YET They Don't Fear Joe Biden But Welcome Him!
3. BREAKING: Corporate Media Is Helping The GOP With Their Lies On Iran The Way They Did With Iraq
We all know Hillary Clinton and the DNC were in cahoots against Bernie Sanders in 2016 (well, not so much in the media since they don't mention it in context ever, but it is a part of our public record that we don't talk about). Anyways, here is something strange that doesn't make sense for an educated man, Chris Cilliza to say. A person makes the claim to be impartial and not a Republican shill placed in media to deceive the people (like Washington Post and other mainstream print outlets have, as does CNN and NBC). Clearly this guy is incompetent at analysis or a shill. There is no other explanation. Do Democrats place shills to deceive the people as well? In any case, here is the report from Media Matters which clearly cites him as a source for the lies about Elizabeth Warren's position on Soliemeni. Given how the media pandered to GOP lies during the Iraq War I'm inclined to think this is something similar. But I may be wrong. He may have Alzheimers and needs to retire from left wing (fact based) journalism. Fox News is a well known home for liars. Below is the research exposing the lies from Chriss Cilliza and some GOP shill in the Washington Post, Josh Rogan.
Media Matters: Media invent Elizabeth Warren “flip-flop” on Soleimani strike
JAKE TAPPER (HOST): You called the U.S. attack that killed Qassem Soleimani a, quote, “assassination." President Ford issued an executive order in '76 to make political assassinations illegal. Are you saying that this strike was a violation of law?
SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA): Look, it was a targeted attack on a government official, a high-ranking military official, for the government of Iran. And what it's done has moved this country closer to war. We are not safer today than we were before Donald Trump acted. … Next week, the president of the United States could be facing an impeachment trial in the Senate. We know he's deeply upset about that. And I think people are reasonably asking, why this moment? Why does he pick now to take this highly inflammatory, highly dangerous action that moves us closer to war?
