I was wondering how the MSM would begin trying to spin some of Comey's testimony today and it looks like Ed over at the Outer Light/Dark has found a perfect example of the ways in which the media spread lies to maintain a narrative that is false.

This time we have ABC to blame!



Now it must be noted that in the actual article for those who read down and through the information, they do clarify the context of the question and it is then shown that it is actually Loretta Lynch who requested the investigation be called a matter for Hillary Clinton, but that does not change the intent of editing the video to make it seem like he was talking about Trumps AG and the Russian investigation.

How exactly do they believe they will get away with this. I know that their target group is those that are clinging on to anything that will lead to Trump's impeachment, but this does not serve their agenda to well.

Sadly for them the internet catches everything and these cheap parlor tricks do not work and for those who are analyzing the work of the MSM, it stands out all to clearly.

To me I think that they are relying upon the low attention span of the average American to not read through the article, but simply watch the summary, note the video is described as "Key moments from Comey's testimony on Trump, Russia" Even though that clip, was clearly not about that at all.

ABC linked article.

This is a bit of a stretch compared to the lies our current president spews out on a daily basis.

That is not what the thread is about, the thread is about dissecting clear misinformation, they edited the video to make it sounds like Trumps AG requested Comey to reclassify the Russian investigation into a "matter" when the full context is that it was actual Obama's corrupt AG covering for the Queen of Corruption herself.

What are your thoughts on ABC professionally editing used to mislead those who only watch the video?

When you understand who owns the MSM, you know without a shadow of a doubt that they believe the public is moronic and sadly in a lot of ways they are right.

However, these kinds of tactics are exposing their hand and they are becoming increasingly desperate as they no longer control the narrative.

Disturbing to say the least. The thing is millions will watch it and be led to think that they are hearing actual testimony. The MSM and leftist media really is another branch of the govt now, professional spin doctors.

It is going to be quite interesting seeing how some people will justify this clear misinformation.

Loretta Lynch should be tried for obstruction of justice ASAP, I look forward to her next hearing!

The MSM reek of desperation and Comey's testimony really did not help in any way shape or form, I like the way you put that, professional spin doctors!

They are mistaken though, I would put money that as this goes viral, which I think it inevitably will, they will take down that video and simply leave up the article.

Really they do not have an option, far too many people payed attention to the live testimony and their attempt at damage control will be blowing up in their faces!

Please explain how ABC is abusing their constitutionally guaranteed rights here:


Comey says Loretta Lynch asked him not to call Clinton email probe an 'investigation'

Describing the circumstances that led to his public announcements about the status of the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state, Comey pointed to his concern with an impromptu June 2016 meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Not only did the former director indicate that he wanted to maintain the FBI's independence, but said he was also troubled by Lynch's comments about the inquiry.

"At one point, the attorney general directed me not to call it an 'investigation,' but instead to call it a 'matter,' which confused me and concerned me," said Comey. "But that was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the Department [of Justice] if we were to close this case credibly."


The OP's source.

Seems to me they make it perfectly clear that Comey was referring to the Clinton investigation. I suspect the problem here is that some people rely on videos. Videos move through time in a way that makes critical analysis difficult. If you miss a word, you may think the following statements or events are saying or portraying one thing when they are really saying or portraying another. If you must rely on video, re-watch it and rewind as necessary.

ETA:Be advised: I will never let anyone forget that you called freedom of the press "junk."

They do not make it clear in the video at all, in the video they clearly edited to make it seem like Comey is talking about the Trump/Russia investigation.

That is the way the video is described, in the video the clearly left out the context that pointed out the corrupt nature of Lynch's influence in Hillary's investigation. It is not about a missed word, it is clearly intended misinformation.

It is the video you link to that has been edited, not the original ABC video. Talk about disinformation!

You gotta be hypnotized, brain washed, willfully ignorant or completely compromised mentally to not see the difference.

It's as if they're playing the odds as it pertains to belief.

It's probably just simple bias reinforcement for the moronic.

Have you not taken the time to click the ABC link that I provided and watched the video?

There is no difference, you are the simply lying and spreading your own form of disinfo, not really surprised, that is your modus operandi!

You gotta be hypnotized, brainwashed, willfully ignorant or completely compromised mentally to watch TV in the first place. In this case, the video is intended to support the written text, not replace it. Presumably, the person who made the "expose" video was too stupid to understand that, or, more likely, was counting on his followers not being astute enough to realize that.

To make myself clear: ABC did not air the video as shown on the web page. The video was intended to support the written text. You guys need to get your noses out of the TV and start reading things.

Your video takes the original video out of context and presents it as something it is not. It is like stringing footnotes together and claiming that a paper is incomprehensible. Read the text, it explains why the audiovisuals were chosen. The OP is a crude attempt to undermine the credibility of legitimate journalism. Nevertheless, the First Amendment guarantees you the right to do that. Fortunately, I have the right to point your own disinformation out.

What the hell does that even mean!?

It was intended to support the written text without giving proper context to the questions?

The entire lead up to when he discusses being requested to call the investigation a matter was exclusively about Trump/Russian investigation, the article does state in written text the truth, but the video does not in any way shape or form "support" that.

You should stop making excuses for MSM that is blatantly spreading misinformation.

The text gives the proper context. The disinformation video did not present the text, robbing it of context.

Haven't owned a tv in 16 years.

Personally, I detest being sold to every 5 to 15min....

I'm sorry you can't see the spin for what it is.

My OP clearly points out that I am supporting Ed from the Outer light youtube channel and his breakdown.

I then go on to describe how ABC does correctly put it into context in the article, the one in which it shows ABC's version of it, which happens to be the same as Ed's.

Keep quoting the first amendment as though I said anything about it, also continue acting like you are exposing my "disinfo" while actually exposing your own!
