NeverTrumpers Bitterly Clinton the Russian Collusion Dossier Some of Them Helped Pay For

They're not like you rubes. They believe fervently in only the finest of evidence-free partisan conspiracy theories, unlike you shabby lot, buying into discount knockoff factory-second partisan conspiracy theories.

The NeverTrumpers' work to push the partisan oppo file first collected up by Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer has not gone unnoticed by the only people whose good favor matter to the NeverTrumpers: their leftwing media colleagues'.

NeverTrumpers are receiving accolades from liberal journalists for joining with the Russia conspiracy theory. CNN's Ryan Lizza said he hopes people remember Hayes' bravery for pieces such as the one above.



Progressive journalist Jonathan Alter says that Hayes' article shows "character & integrity."




Curiously, this Strange New Respect from left-wing media activists doesn’t cite fidelity to fact as the reason for the plaudits. Instead, the praise is heaped entirely for the bravery and courage of…agreeing with Democrats and the media that Trump is gross and shouldn’t be president.

While the attaboys from the likes of Lizza and Alter might appear more akin to eulogies given the purely partisan motivations behind them, they’re nonetheless illustrative, because they highlight the legacy media standard at play in 2018: publishing false news in pursuit of impeachment is no vice, and journalism in pursuit of facts is no virtue.
