Oliver Boyd-Barrett - RussiaGate as Organized Distraction

Oliver Boyd-Barrett looks at who benefits from having the corporate media suffocate their public with a puerile narrative for over two years. 

An excellent article on the RussiaGate conspiracy theory. It goes over quite a lot.

Those of us that knew RussiaGate was fake news were unable to believe the level of audacity of the establishment and the media. Every night on TV we watched politicians and journalists outright lying. 

For over two years RussiaGate has accounted for a substantial proportion of all mainstream U.S. media political journalism and, because U.S. media have significant agenda-setting propulsion, of global media coverage as well. The timing has been catastrophic. The Trump administration has shredded environmental protections, jettisoned nuclear agreements, exacerbated tensions with U.S. rivals and pandered to the rich.
