Will some brave representative pull a Mike Gravel soon? Will Trump pull an Ulysses S. Grant on Mueller? Or are we heading into foreign territory?  

We will never know—as long as we rely upon the New York Times as the “paper of record”.

Armando takes over the KITM microphone to rail on the NYT—the “Texas School Board” of News, whose size and recognition warps the national dialog, not just normalizing Trump, but creating a symbiotic relationship wherein the two need each other to succeed in order to survive.

David and Armando lay out their case:

Do you remember when Steve Bannon (when he was still a "genius") thought GamerGate culture was the key to cementing a political realignment?

The vehicle the Mercers & Bannon used to shop Trump opposition research was GAI, the "Government Accountability Institute." GAI was also the vehicle used to market "Clinton Cash." Often in... unique ways.

So, take the story on the exclusive agreements The New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News made with “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer. The NYT tells it their way, and most follow, whereas, over at, say, Newsweek, they saw things differently, as did Media Matters.
