US media, at least those fed content from deep state sources like CIA and NSA, has collapsed in a smoldering heap. This is a great summation of how Russiagate never really had any verification…

More often, when explosive #Russiagate headlines go sideways, the original outlets simply ignore the new development, leaving the “retraction” process to conservative outlets that don’t reach the original audiences.

This is a major structural flaw of the new fully-divided media landscape in which Republican media covers Democratic corruption and Democratic media covers Republican corruption. If neither “side” feels the need to disclose its own errors and inconsistencies, mistakes accumulate quickly.

 

It’s official: Russiagate is this generation’s WMD

 

We’re at that next devolution: first and wrong. The Russiagate era has so degraded journalism that even once “reputable” outlets are now only about as right as politicians, which is to say barely ever, and then only by accident.

I wrote him later and suggested that since we’re in the press, and not really about anything except avoiding “things that may not be true,” maybe we had different responsibilities than “Democrats”? He wrote back:

Feel free to police the Trump opposition. But on the list of shit that needs to be covered these days, that’s just not high on my personal list.

Tor Was Built, Then Hacked by Pentagon

 

Last fall, we learned that one branch of the Navy paid Carnegie-Mellon University researchers to hack into the “onion routing” encryption system called Tor, which was spawned by a different branch of the Navy, the Naval Research Laboratory. The FBI used the hack to penetrate the Dark Web and bust Silk Road 2.0, and Levine asserts that Tor is falsely advertised as impenetrable, and promoted by Ed Snowden. Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald…
