Pete Hegseth, the former CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, was on Fox News’ Outnumbered and said, “The most effective arm of Russian propaganda has been the Democratic Party and the leftwing media in this country, which has pushed that collusion narrative now, since the election, and before it.”
There might be some truth there. If Russia was trying to undermine the U.S. electoral system, the media and politicians who are promulgating the collusion story might be most responsible for the undermining. It’s like the old statement about terrorism — if you let an attack change your habits, you’re letting the terrorists win. Well if you let the collusion story dominate the news for days on end, are you letting the Russians win?
