Steve Schmidt on Russian bounties.

American journalists have an absolute professional and ethical responsibility to ask Trump about Russian bounties on the heads of America’s fighting men and women. That he has not been asked about this is simply appalling. Trump’s breach of faith demands accountability. Ask
the question. Demand the answer. The essential role of a free press in a democratic society should be demonstrated in this instance. This is a serious issue and Trump’s transgression against our military must not fade into the abyss of chaos and confusion that shapes our news

Dammit! Trump is proving, by silence, that he is part of the plot.

3. Steve, you can only yell into an empty cave so many times before giving up and walking away

The entire country is on cruise control until this leadership vacuum is fixed. Congress is stymied and so is the press.

4. If all you are going to get is "It's a hoax"

Ask 1000 times and make him say hoax a 1000 times. Rake him over the coals, if for nothing else, for not reading the daily briefing book. It says DAILY right on the fucking cover! Get to the bottom of "was he told?", if not "why not?", and if so "why no response". After all that, find out why there is still no response.

They've been right on top of it, right? Don't blame the press for what Trump's own party should be doing.

As soon as he says that, the interview stops, the reporter withers, I want one of them to flip him off on camera and tell him straight up he`s an ASSHOLE

30. The reply is so easy though:

“It’s not a terrible question to the families of dead servicemen and women, though, is it? Don’t they deserve an answer?”

let the reporter leave, and then go play 18 holes.

13. Lawrence O'Donnell keeps shaming White House reporters for their failure

to ask about Putin's paying bounties to murder American troops.It was the first issue Lawrence raised on his show this week, and he is just as irate as Schmidt about such dereliction by the gutless Press Corps. They make big bucks to act as stenographers for White House gossipers and to invent a coherent narrative out of Trump's nonsensical spewing of lies.

18. Media has dropped the ball on this one.

They are letting it slide into the ether. It should be the second question asked every day.

First; "When is the pResident going to acknowledge the rise in Covid-19 cases and the need for more testing, tracing and a issue a real plan?"

Second; "Why has the pResident not done anything about the bounties that Russia placed on American soldiers heads, and don't lie this time and say they have not been proven, they have, what is your answer?"

25. It was so easy for Trump to get rid of this story.

All he had to do was pose with a pile of GOYA products, wear a mask (once), commute Roger Stone's sentence and have Navarro write an anti-Fauci Op-ed, and *poof* the Russian Bountygate story is history, never to be heard about again - while the media breathlessly follows every squirrel that Trump tosses into their path.

His reptilian understanding of how to manipulate the media is astounding.

27. as a vet, this

our media today is geared toward drama, entertainment, infotainment.

The day of Murrow, Swayze, Cronkite, Steinem, Ida B. Wells, Dorothy Thompson, Neil Sheehan, Dan Rather, Walter Winchell is over and long gone. And while Winchell was mainly concentrated on gossip I bet he would have found something on the POTUS currently squatting at 1600 with his grifter GOYA beans loving family.

There are many more and I remember some. Today's so-called journalists are bought off, frightened children afraid of losing their place at trumps table serving a poisoned meal. They are pitiful and Fox News? NSP-GOP propaganda machine for a racist fascist regime.
