The blockbuster, non-collusion news the media didn't report

Trump and Putin shake hands (Helsinki)If you missed the blockbuster news late last week that a U.S. Senate committee failed to find Trump-Russia collusion, there is a reason you missed it: the mainstream media stayed quiet.

Since President Donald Trump took office in 2017, ABC, CBS and NBC have spent 2,202 minutes reporting on allegations of collusion according to media watchdog Media Research Center.

All totaled, that's nearly 37 hours trying to convince America that the 2016 election result amounts to a fraud perpetrated by the Kremlin and the current U.S. president, who is often described by the Left as a "stooge" of Vladamir Putin.

"If you look at what specifically goes into that coverage," says MRC analyst Bill D'Agostino, "it's all spent kind of implying or outright saying that the president has been colluding with Russia." 

U.S. Sen. Bill Burr, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said last week that the committee's probe is now in its third year and there is no evidence of collusion after 200 witnesses and 300,000 pages of documents, Politico reported last week.

Burr has claimed there is bipartisnaship among Republicans and Democrats, who are led by Vice Chair Mark Warner. 

Even though the media purposely ignored the news, D'Agostino says the public needs to know that Democrats on the committee agreed there is no material evidence of collusion.

Yet  the mainstream media, absent that news, will keep stringing along the narrative that the Mueller team or congressional Democrats, or New York state "resistance" fighters, will find something to stick to the president.

D'Agostino says the only other choice they have is to admit they've been wrong all along.

"Trump came along and didn't apologize for things that they would attack him on. He would double down, he would stick to his guns," says the MRC analyst. "And when they found that that wasn't actually destroying him, that was very alarming to them."
