Hillary calls it 'baloney' ... media sees no meat at all

Hillary Clinton and Putin (new)The mainstream media is being accused of failing the American people by its self-censoring of reports related to the Clinton-uranium scandal.

The Uranium One scandal involving the Clintons and the Obama administration should be rocking Washington and the rest of the country. One of the reasons it's not shaking the capital is that the liberal media still refuses to report on it – which makes the media "complicit in a blatant cover-up," says Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center.

"This is a bombshell story of Watergate-like proportions," says Bozell. "What will it take for the media to deem it newsworthy? This is beyond irresponsible journalism ... Their credibility continues to rapidly erode ... The media have failed the American people and must be held accountable."

As Breitbart.com outlines, author Peter Schweizer first broke the story in his 2015 book Clinton Cash. In short, the U.S. State Department – under Hillary Clinton – and several other federal agencies approved the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia in 2010; and that several foreign investors in the deal funneled $145 million to Hillary and Bill Clinton's personal charity, the Clinton Foundation.

Clinton Global InitiativeThe New York Times confirmed the scandal shortly after Schweizer's book was released, the FBI uncovered evidence of the money going to the Foundation – and it was revealed that Bill Clinton raked in half-a-million dollars for one speech in Moscow just prior to the deal. Now the Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a probe into the scandal, and has asked that a gag order be lifted on the FBI's whistleblower – or that person will be subpoenaed. (See earlier story)

Despite the congressional probe, Hillary Clinton calls the renewed focus on the Uranium One deal nothing more than debunked "baloney" and an indication that Republicans are nervous about the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

With the media blackout, special investigator Robert Mueller and his team looking the other way into Trump and Russia, and liberals across the country declaring war on President Trump and his base, Dan Gainor of Media Research Center says he's with the growing percentage of Americans who are despairing of ever seeing justice done.

News with magnifying glass 2"When we lose the ability to trust one another, when we lose the ability to think our government will work in the best interest of society, we end up in bad places," he tells OneNewsNow.

Political analyst Jeff Crank offers similar sentiments about the media.

"It's sickening to see the 'pay-to-play' scheme that was used during the Obama administration and with the Clinton Foundation – and particularly Hillary Clinton," he shares. "I'm starting to lose faith, quite honestly, in our media to cover the story and cover it fairly."

Following last week's report in The Hill exposing how the FBI was investigating Russian bribery of public officials before the deal was approved, only one of the "Big Three" networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) mentioned the scandal. CBS devoted "a whopping 69 seconds" to the story on Sunday's "Face the Nation," MRC reports.
