WNU Editor: Does Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova have a point about the American media. Hmmmm ... let me see. The U.S President fires someone that he has the authority to dismiss .... and the mainstream media and pundit class go into a meltdown talking about this as being a  coup, constitutional crisis, cover-up, Watergate, Russian collusion,  fascism, talk of impeachment, the President is irrational and crazy, etc..

The media lost it's way a long time ago, propaganda, bias, omission and agenda seems to be all we get from the MSM. The corporations broken up,would be a good first step to changing this. Investigations into the editors and reporters left and right, a good second step. One cannot believe anything anymore, let alone make informed decisions with the garbage that get pumped out or left out of the news.

The irony is that the US Media could actually help improve relations between Washington and Moscow. By giving both sides something they can positively agree on; that the US media is a monolith of hard leftwing bias and groupthink.
