White House Putin Video Omits Facts

If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.

The truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.

We recently published a piece regarding Trump's attacks and war against most US Media (Fox News, AM radio, Info Wars and the National Enquirer excluded). The backdrop of the piece was yesterday's Air Force One trek to Kansas City, Missouri for a Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) conference. The full video of yet another insane speech from Trump is embedded in the piece: As Trump's World Turns: “Lugenpresse” (Fake News, Lying Media).

The linked piece provides a viewing platform for what follows. During last nights Rachel Maddow Sow show viewers watched a revealing and tragic example of Trump's media manipulation and communications strategies. The segment includes a compelling case regarding the administration's efforts to minimize or hold as false Putin's clear indication he preferred Trump to win the 2016 election. The actual audio revealed Putin may have ordered his henchmen and cyber armies to assist with Trump's election.

Here is the full TRMS "A" Block segment.  Yes, it is a long view, but as is generally the case with Maddow, worth the viewing time.

The White House issued a statement indicating the translator's notes and camera shots were not in sync. Basically, the word is, the camera started rolling at a point of missing part of Putin's answers to questions.

We should never forget Trump recently hired former Fox News executive Bill Shine for work in this Communications Department as well as a top aide behind John Kelly. Shine was eventually released from the Murdoch empire after the sexual harassment issues related to the firing of Bill O'Reilly.  As a top executive at Fox, it is impossible to overlook questions of veracity and media credibility.  In 2015, Politifact ran an analysis of cable news networks and the "Truth"  Of course, Shine's Fox News came in first in the delivery of "False" news. Another critical factor when considering the scope via the Maddow Show, Sean Hannity has often stated he is not a journalist he is a talk host. 

Talk host? A carefully crafted set of words to cover Hannity's frequent misstatements and his counsel of the nation's 45th President.  
Joseph Goebbels would love that!
