<Thread> We appreciate the attention from @LincolnsBible and are grateful for the community of courageous and talented researchers and journalists who deserve credit for their efforts in exposing the truth in the months before and after the 2016 Crisis. /more @traciemac_Bmore
It’s extremely unfortunate that the mainstream networks failed to report the work of these independent journalists, bloggers and researchers. They have deprived them of much-needed oxygen for their work and income to continue it. /more @traciemac_Bmore
But this is not just a question of giving credit to people who deserve it. It’s an issue of the independence of newsrooms in corporately-owned structures. And It strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Do we really have a free press in America today? /more @traciemac_Bmore
Who stands to benefit from muzzling independent journalists? Generally speaking, the trusted independent journalists who do this work are less susceptible to outside influence from advertisers, corporate overlords and investors (foreign or domestic). / more @traciemac_Bmore
I can a-test the amount of implied and direct interference in U.S. newsrooms is extreme. It is one of the main reasons, they missed the story, failed to accurately report on it and why they still have not told America everything they know. @traciemac_Bmore
No examination of Trump-Russia can be complete without an investigation into network newsroom structures, their ownership and how boards and their members, executives, hosts and journalists misled the public. /end @traciemac_Bmore
My apologies on the autocorrect which didn’t recognize attest and changed it to a-test.
