New York Times: American Report on Russian Hacking Has An “Absence of Any Concrete Evidence … But Rests Instead On What It Describes As Moscow’s Long Record of Trying to Influence America’s Political System”

The New York Times reports today:

[T]he absence of any concrete evidence in the report of meddling by the Kremlin was met with a storm of mockery on Saturday by  Russian politicians and commentators, who took to social media to ridicule the report as a potpourri of baseless conjecture.

***

The report provides no new evidence to support assertions that Moscow meddled covertly through hacking and other actions to boost the electoral chances of Donald J. Trump and undermine his rival, Hillary Clinton, but rests instead on what it describes as Moscow’s long record of trying to influence America’s political system.

That’s all they’ve got?  Since the Soviet Union – which doesn’t even exist any more – was evil, Putin must be as well?

Weakvery weak.

    Obama is ending a failed Presidency with a sh-tstorm. How smart of him! May it rain down diarrhea upon him, for the rest of this Nobel Peace Prize Winner’s life, and may the CIA itself drown in it, under the rain (and reign) of his successor. And may America’s ‘news’media drink deeply of it, at his feet.

    So what if Russia DID do all the MSM says it did:
    “The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a U.S. non-profit soft power organization that was founded in 1983 with the stated goal of promoting democracy abroad.[1] It is funded primarily through an annual allocation from the U.S. Congress in the form of a grant awarded through the United States Information Agency (USIA).”

    What is really scary is that anyone reading this BS in the country’s MSM would take it seriously.

    Why? To draw attention off and discredit by association (classic mccarthy move) the revelations of the contents — that the Democratic Party corrupted the nomination process to favor the puppet favored by its owner-operators on Wall Street. Wall Street always backs both horses. This is about maintaining the Two Party puppet show by maintaining the credibility of one of the costumes.

  • I mean, is this supposed to be an in joke we hoi polloi don’t get? Because I sure don’t get it.

    The hypocrisy of the D.C. propagandists is hilarious. It’s true that Russia Today and Sputnik news are patriotic Russian propaganda outfits. The New York Times, WaPo, NPR, CNN etc. are also propaganda outfits. The great lie is that they claim to be non-partisan.

    Reminds me of this funny video from R.T. where they poke fun at themselves…

    These addresses cannot be used for connecting to routers outside a small business or home network. Areas where more than one computers are connected to the router are prone to address conflicts when the users want to make any changes in the settings. If they want to avoid conflicts on IP address, they have to use the private address for only one device.
