The mainstream media such as CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, and others in the United States have chosen their sides. The sides they have chosen are indiscriminately left-leaning. These outlets will stop essentially at nothing in their zeal to be the acting voice pieces of the Democratic Party.
Via the spreading of misinformation coming directly from the Democratic Party, mainstream media outlets are protecting the elite and powerful. The very same elite and powerful, whom many journalists swore to bring truth to upon graduating from elite universities.
The reporting on the Steele Dossier is a classic example and clear evidence of the 'popular' media's political leanings and dealings. Since 2017, the circulation of the Steele Dossier has gone unquestioned. It has come to light that the political "opposition-research" article was commissioned by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic election committee to smear Donald Trump and the Republican Party's 2016 election campaign. It alleged misconduct, conspiracy, and cooperation between the then-presidential candidate Trump and the Russian government.
