Despite bombshell reports yesterday claiming that Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice “unmasked” members of the Trump campaign and Trump transition team while reviewing raw intelligence, that such unmasked information was widely distributed among top members of the Obama administration, and that Rice asked for continuous updates on communications between foreign targets and the Trump team after Trump won the Republican nomination, the media have decided that the story simply isn’t worth covering.
CNN’s Don Lemon stated that the media should not “aid and abet the people” creating a “diversion” over Susan Rice. As Newsbusters reports, CBS’ Margaret Brennan cited sources stating that Rice’s activity was perfectly normal and not improper. The New York Times echoed that claim. ABC News and NBC News didn’t cover the story at all.
