    How did it go when Maddow leaked President Trump's tax returns?

    Or, when Brian Ross claimed that candidate Trump ordered Flynn to call the Russian ambassador?

    The gall of Putin's regime is astounding. Putin is seeking his fourth term as president of Russia and has held the office of president for 14 years since 2000. The Putin regime controls virtually all Russian print, internet, and broadcasting media outlets. Putin's main challenger was the popular opposition activist Alexei Navalny. However Mr. Navalny has been banned form being a presidential candidate due to a trumped up criminal charge and kangaroo court conviction which was Putin's ace in the hole. The only other known candidate is the Russian reality TV star Ksenia Sobchak. After the USSR fell apart, KGB Lt. Col. Putin returned to his hometown of St. Petersburg and joined the staff of St. Petersburg Mayor Anatoly Sobchak (d. 2000) ...Ksenia's father. Mayor Sobchak took Putin under his wing and schooled him on political power and corruption. Vladimir Putin is the Godfather of Ksenia Sobchak.

    Yeah, Sean Hannity beats them all..

    https://www.vox.com/2017/11/15/16649...ranscript-data

    I analyzed the past two years of transcripts from Hannity, his Fox News program that airs every weeknight, and found a show that peddles conspiracy theories more than any other news show in the US. Hannity often mirrors the language of online conspiracy forums, and it's only gotten more frequent since Hannity's friend and fellow conspiracy theorist Donald Trump became president.

    I measured this by analyzing the overlap between Hannity’s show and the top posts from Reddit's /r/conspiracy forum. (More on the methodology at the bottom of this post.)

    This data is even more astounding if you consider that Hannity is a one-hour show airing only on weekdays, while many of the other top shows, like MSNBC Live and CNN's New Day, air for multiple hours each day.

    Now, just because a show appears on this list doesn't mean it peddled conspiracy theories. For example, if the president tweets out a conspiracy theory and the program covers it, then the show would make an appearance on this list. That said, there's only so much you can talk about a conspiracy theory before you cross the line into legitimizing it.

    That's what Hannity does. He takes conspiracy theories and gives them a platform; he encourages his viewers to distrust their ears, because the media and liberals are collaborating to mislead Americans.
    METHODOLOGY:

    I scraped the top 1,000 posts of Reddit's /r/conspiracy forum and grouped similar posts. From there, I came up with keywords and contextualizing words that helped me detect when a news program might be talking about one of these theories; this was a manual process, since many Reddit posts are often just image links. This helped me find about 100 search terms. Using those curated words, I searched transcripts of cable television news from the TV News Archive using the Television Explorer tool from the GDELT Project. This gave me every instance in which the keywords were used within four sentences of the contextualizing words.

    The jury is still out on that. If it comes to light to be true, you certainly would not believe it anyways so why ask?

    One thing for sure. All the fake pro-Trump propaganda that was floated around and passed on by the less intelligent among our society did have a profound impact on the election. I mean, Trump lost the popular vote but he was able to dupe enough gullible s to win the EC.

    You see, Russia didn't corrupt the voting machines. They corrupted the mind's of the gullible ideologists. And a fool's vote counts just as much as an intelligent person's does.

    Face it. Because of that stupidity, we are now stuck with the most dishonest, lying, p.o.s. that has ever occupied the Whitehouse in my lifetime. (And that even includes G.W. Bush.)

    i don't want the US meddling in Russia's or anyone's elections. also, trying to influence the Russian election would be pointless. Putin is a czar, and will remain a czar until he gets bored with it or until the Russian people get so angry with him that he's forced out. this election is a sham.

    I've always felt that any collusion would occur in information sharing. The targeting of specific districts in specific swing states requires a pretty good knowledge of US politics. Either they got that information from the campaign or paid another political operative to gather than information.

    Well, that does pass the smell test as far as common sense goes, however, that is still just speculation.

    As hard as the Trumper's are trying to "poison the well" in regards to any findings the F.B.I. may or may not come up with, to plant the seeds of doubt, so to speak, common sense would lead a thinking person to believe that there was collusion. Otherwise, why would they be trying so hard to cast doubt on the F.B.I.? But, again, that too, is just speculation.

    I have a feeling that when the truth does get revealed, Comrade Trump might be in a world of hurt. Of course, that will not matter one bit to his blind followers. They are willing to believe any lie he tells them. That has been proven, over and over again.
