They Don't Even Care How Preposterous Their Lies Are

From the Washington Post today, a classic example of our mainstream press at work:

"Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe vowed Thursday that he would tell the Senate Intelligence Committee if the White House tried to interfere with the bureau’s probe of possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election — though he asserted that there had “been no effort to impede our investigation to date.” 

McCabe made the statements at a public hearing with top U.S. intelligence officials before the Senate Intelligence Committee — a hearing that has taken on new significance since Trump suddenly removed James B. Comey from the FBI’s top post."

They fired the head of the FBI as soon as he said he was continuing the investigation into them, and the guy they put in as his acting replacement just came out and said there has been no effort to impede the investigation.  And the Washington Post repeats it as though it were the gospel truth.

Lying right in our faces- now the standard practice not just of the Republican party but of the American press too.  How can we hope to survive in the face of this?  And let's be clear; there is not enough outrage on earth to adequately respond to this, but this is what we are stuck with today.

"been no effort to impede our investigation to date.”

What the hell does he think the firing of Comey is, even if the investigation is not the reasoning for the firing (which everyone with an ounce of brains knows it is)?
