3. Bullshit story.

It takes ten paragraphs before New York Times mentions its latest Clinton hit-piece is speculation

Today's New York Times has an utterly devastating report on the Clinton State Department signing off on a Russian agency taking control of a Canadian uranium mining company after those sneaky Canucks donated money to the Clinton Foundation and Bill was paid for a speech in Moscow. Quid pro quo! Smoking Gun! Oh, wait ... ten paragraphs in, the New York Times remembers to mention:

Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown.

... because as it turns out, "multiple United States agencies, as well as the Canadian government, had signed off on the deal." Oh. The smoke from the gun clears. Well, not really, as the article continues for another 60 or so paragraphs and this story will be breathlessly cited across the media universe, so ... mission accomplished!
