Breathless Media Coverage of the Non-Story of Michael Flynn's Contact With the Russians; Not a Damn Word About Obama's Secret Meetings With Iran's Mullahs to Plot Propaganda Campaign In Favor of Giving Them the Nuke

Great compare-and-contrast by David Steinberg.

And just so you know, as it wasn't much reported on: While the media blazed the story that there was an "investigation" into the phone call Flynn took from the Russians on the 29th of December (after he was already an incoming member of the soon-to-be government of the US), the media didn't seem quite so eager to publicize this NBC report that the investigation had found nothing at all illicit:

The FBI eavesdropped on telephone calls between President Donald Trump's national security adviser and the Russian ambassador but found nothing improper, a U.S. intelligence official said.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media, said late Monday that there was never a formal "investigation" of the calls in December between retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn and Sergei Kislyak, Russia's ambassador in Washington.


According to the source, who was confirming a Washington Post report earlier Monday, intelligence officials merely listened in as part of routine eavesdropping on Kislyak.

...

The former official, who requested anonymity to speak about sensitive information, said it was not uncommon for diplomats or other U.S. officials to garner such attention to if they are recorded talking to foreign counterparts. Rarely anything comes of this, however, because U.S. officials have wide latitude in how they communicate as part of their jobs.

Make sure you read Steinberg's article to get the skinny on Obama huddling with Mullahs on what lies to tell to his Echo Chamber.
