Do you bear in mind when the House Jan. 6 committee launched an investigation into the seven-and-a-half hours of White House name logs that have been supposedly lacking from Jan. 6, 2021?
This was simply the newest smoking gun that might lastly deliver down Trump. Bob Woodward, just like the grandstander that he is, declared the “scandal” worse than Watergate.
Here’s the TV information working in lockstep on the largest story of our time:

That goofy man with the glasses who calls himself Chris Hayes discovered “the coverup” so monumental that he led his MSNBC primetime present with that story for a complete week. Inflation and the southern border, be damned.
Unfortunately for the press, this story, like so many others earlier than it, rapidly fizzled out. When Jamie Gangel of CNN opted to do some precise reporting herself, she discovered this was a non-story. Here’s her report:
“According to a number of sources aware of Trump’s cellphone habits and the White House switchboard data, the January 6 log displays Trump’s typical cellphone habits. He primarily positioned calls by way of the switchboard when he was within the residence however not often used it when he was within the Oval Office. The reality the log doesn’t present calls on January 6, 2021, from the Oval Office is commonplace, mentioned the sources, as a result of Trump usually had workers both place calls instantly for him on landlines or cell telephones. Those calls wouldn’t be famous on the switchboard log.
“The six pages of White House switchboard logs for January 6, 2021, are complete based on an official review of White House records, according to a source familiar with the matter. There are no missing pages and the seven-hour gap is likely explained by use of White House landlines, White House cell phones and personal cell phones that do not go through the switchboard.”
Wait, what? What occurred to “all of the elements of an organized concealment”?
Where are the crime-ridden burner telephones?!?
It seems, they didn’t exist, and everybody who mentioned they did was mendacity.
The logs weren’t “missing.” Trump — gasp! — used a cellular phone that day, and as Ms. Gangel notes, calls on a cellular phone “would not be noted on the switchboard log.” She additionally factors out that such cellular phone utilization was “typical” for Trump
So Trump doesn’t fairly make Richard Nixon appear like a “piker,” in spite of everything.
This complete story was manufactured. MSNBC, CNN and the Washington Post noticed a possibility to flip consideration away from President Joe Biden’s rising checklist of failures and put the detrimental consideration again on Trump. MSNBC and CNN want Trump — take a look at how their rankings have plummeted since he left workplace.
As anticipated, not one of the previously outraged hosts have acknowledged Gangel’s reporting, that the logs are full. Instead, they’ve directed their fireplace elsewhere, accusing individuals like Tucker Carlson of working for the Kremlin.
People like Haynes and Woodward received’t retract their claims as a result of they didn’t make a mistake. Rather, they lied and amplified a hoax on objective. That’s a key distinction. You appropriate your errors, you reside by your lies. Anti-Trump rhetoric is good for enterprise. Honest journalism is not.
At this level, the company press doesn’t have an oz. of credibility left, particularly as issues Donald Trump. Destroying Trump has grow to be private to them, and nobody with a private vendetta can ever be remotely goal.
Trump didn’t collude with Russia, he didn’t take part in a cover-up, and Hunter Biden’s laptop computer is actual. Yet these schmucks nonetheless attempt to deceive us.
