The so-called “mainstream” media may deny it, but their newsrooms are stacked with anti-Trump zealots.
Fake news is routinely run as part of an effort to destroy Donald Trump.
NBC confirmed everyone’s worst fears about the scheme to impeach Trump with this story they ran.
NBC rocked politics when they ran a story claiming the government had wiretapped Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s phone and even picked up a call from a phone inside the White House.
Journalists began to wildly speculate that Cohen was in severe legal trouble and that it could ensnare the President.
But within hours, NBC was forced to run a correction stating that there was no wiretap of Cohen, instead they used a routine procedure known as a pen log where the catalogue incoming and outgoing calls but do not record the content.
They were forced to write:
CORRECTION: Earlier today, NBC News reported that there was a wiretap on the phones of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney, citing two separate sources with knowledge of the legal proceedings involving Cohen.
But three senior U.S. officials now dispute that, saying that the monitoring of Cohen’s phones was limited to a log of calls, known as a pen register, not a wiretap where investigators can actually listen to calls.
NBC News has changed the headline and revised parts of the original article.
This is not an isolated incident.
Outlets have repeatedly ran fake news stories about Trump and Russia, but the mistakes all fall in one direction – every false story initially creates a narrative that Trump or his associates are guilty.
• NBC News falsely reported Trump's lawyer was wiretapped
• CNN falsely reported Trump's son colluded with WikiLeaks
• ABC News falsely reported Trump told Flynn to meet w/Russians during the campaign
• Bloomberg falsely reported Mueller issued subpoena targeting Trump allies

The media runs these fake stories on purpose.
The corrections get little coverage, but the initial story rockets across social media and cable news creating an atmosphere that Trump is moments away from being dragged from office in handcuffs.
The media’s goal is not to report the truth.
Their goal is destroy Donald Trump by any means necessary.
And fake news is just one arrow in their quiver.
