Gee, haven’t they (and radio and TV and some of the Internet) been doing that since 2016?. But this is a special effort called and coordinated by the Boston Globe (owned by the NYSlimes) due to Trump’s general “fake news” criticism and his “enemy of the people” charge against specific outlets.
“I hope it would educate readers to realize that an attack on the First Amendment is unacceptable,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe. ‘‘We are a free and independent press, it is one of the most sacred principles enshrined in the Constitution.’’
Ah, but the First Amendment doesn’t say the government can’t criticize the news media.
“Mr. Trump enjoys free speech just as his media adversaries do. Rather, the First Amendment prevents government from infringing on the rights of Americans to speak and publish. And on that score, there’s a reasonable case that Mr. Trump’s predecessor presented a greater threat to press freedom, to say nothing of Mr. Trump’s 2016 opponent. Mrs. Clinton wanted to restrict the ability of Americans to make a documentary about her. We don’t recall editorial boards joining together to announce they were not with her.”

“The question is which of two scenarios is more likely true. Either 1) [FBI director of counter-intelligence Peter] Strzok was completely incompetent, or 2) his pro-Clinton bias displayed in the thousands of text messages between him and Page caused him to downplay this security issue and ignore it, because it could hurt his favored presidential candidate if it came to light.”—Swen Swenson at Instapundit.
“…according to the information [Texas Rep Louie] Gohmert received from the intelligence inspector general, something was causing Clinton’s server to send copies of all of her email communications outside of the country ‘to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia.'”

Trump throwing a server wrench into the Mueller indictment machine.
“So let me just say that we have two thoughts: You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee [DNC]? I’ve been wondering that,” Trump said.
“I’ve been asking that for months and months, and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know, where is the server and what is the server saying? … I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server.”
“I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.”
When, uh, slavery was legal. This in pursuit of overturning Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supremes. As if claiming he will harm women’s rights, make abortions illegal, and provide a collusion-indicted Trump with a get-out-of-jail-free ruling wasn’t enough.
Thus Felonia joins Chuckles Schumer in the deep end of the maniac pool. But, then, she’ll say anything to get speaking fees.
