Fox News Runs A "Scandal" On Susan Rice!

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice slams Trump and Fox News for running a fake story about her.

Remember the "smoking guns" that Fox News produces are often squirting water.

Fox News is the only network covering it. When the other networks aren't covering the story, either they don't care or do they are actually doing the "fact-checking" of the claims.

And the person they accused of causing a scandal is firing back.

To make this clear, there were two stories about former Trump advisors being involved in a scandal.

Why wasn't Fox News covering that?

While the junk food media is talking about two former Trump advisors getting contacts from agents of Russia, the only network that tries to give Donald J. Trump favorable coverage is still trying to blame former president Barack Obama for the ordeal.

While the network is facing a flurry of sexual harassment lawsuits and allegations, the Fox News Channel is still conducting "business as usual." The business is to distract the American people with "fake news" stories. Trump is calling upon Fox News to find someone to blame besides Obama. 

Eli Lake of Bloomberg View and Fox News broke the story about former National Security Advisor Susan Rice is behind an "unmasking" of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

This "unmasking" had gotten Michael Flynn, a commentator and former National Security Advisor was sacked after a few weeks on the job. The right is trying to find someone to blame for Flynn's undoing. 

So what got the right outraged is the fact that Rice (ah hem, National Security Advisor) is doing her job to figure out if Russian operatives were meddling in the U.S. election. 

And let's make this clear, it was legal for her to conduct information sweeps of individuals who may have been involved in foreign espionage.

The reasons Fox News targeted Rice: Benghazi. They are still reliving the 2013 interviews in which Rice told the junk food media that a "controversial video" sparked the deadly attack on a U.S. Consulate facility.

Rice fired back at the Trump people by penning an op-ed in the Washington Post. The former national security advisor and United Nations ambassador said that the false and misleading statements show a "disturbing pattern of behavior that poses a real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security."

She also made note of the last controversy that sidelined Andrew Napolitano.

She added that misleading statements will damage "the perception that the United States is steady, rational and fact-based."

"To lead effectively, the United States must maintain respect and trust. So when a White House deliberately dissembles and serially contorts the facts, its actions pose a serious risks to America's global leadership, among friends and adversaries alike," Rice said.

Sean "Softball" Hannity is trying his best to distract. He puts on Sinclair Broadcasting Group's reporters to justify a claim that is unverified. Mind you these were the same people who believed that bulk data collection was good for the nation under a Republican and not a Democrat.

Why don't Donald J. Trump look at his daily briefings?

Why is Trump taking his briefings from opinion shows like Fox News?
