Russia Probe Investigation Bias

The Russia Probe investigation has been an ongoing investigation over the past year concerning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election. The investigation started after a leak of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers and there is investigation over if there are connections to the Trump campaign and these leaks.

Depending on where you get your news information, news is spread and promoted by saying things that interest the fanbase. As a result of media bias in two major news outlets, CNN and Fox News give out true information without all the information, to promote their opinions concerning their preferred party/candidates.

CNN is known for choosing liberal opinions and promoting the liberal agenda. One case in the Russia Probe investigation is when they released a quote about the memo that was released.

“In the past year, the dossier has become the boogeyman of Republicans and a sacred text for Democrats. Regardless of the partisan spin, CNN has reported that US investigators have corroborated some aspects of the dossier, especially claims relating to conversations among foreign nationals.”

Fox News is known for choosing conservative opinions and promoting the conservative agenda. The other side of the memo promoted by Fox is a quote saying “Trump said the memo “vindicates” him in the Russia investigation. But Democrats have dismissed the memo as “misleading,” saying it was released by Republicans in order to push the narrative that the probe is biased against the president. Weeks later, they released their own rebuttal memo, which defends the FBI and Justice Department.”

From an outsiders perspective, how is anyone to know who is telling the true story? Not researching your data before considering it all true is something that many people fall victim to. Investigate!
