The New York Times' Dean Baquet Admits: When Our Russia Collusion Storyline Collapsed in a Pile of Failure and Mueller, We Just Juiced Up Our New White Supremacist Collusion Storyline

Julie Kelly at American Greatness reports on the admission not heard 'round the media world.

Or at least -- heard, but then not reported.

Pivoting to the failed effort to prove that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians to sway the 2016 election, Dean Baquet confessed his news organization trafficked the collusion drug until it lost its potency.

"The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, 'Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.' And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think," Baquet said during a "crisis town hall meeting" at the paperís headquarters last week.

"And I think that the story changed," he added. "A lot of the stuff we're talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We're a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that's what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?"

Kelly analogizes the Times, and the media generally, as drug-dealers selling a cocktail of hatred and conspiracy, keeping its users dissociated from reality for a full three year Lost Weekend.

But now that the first cocktail has lost its potency, they've quickly cooked up a new one.

Then came the crash.

Not only did Team Mueller fail to find proof of collusion, the deified prosecutor turned in an abysmal performance before Congress last month. The daily supply of Russian collusion dope dried up, but Trump-hating addicts don't need rehab just yet: The Times is stocking up another toxic potion--white supremacy--to poison the body politic and cure any collusion withdrawal symptoms.

Folks like Baquet can only be held partially responsible: There is no supply if there's no demand. The Times' readers demand that their Trump-hating addiction is satisfied every day--the Times is just doing what any corner-hustling dealer would do to delay their customers' sobriety.

Read the whole thing. It's a good one.

Also, read the column she wrote on this subject -- cooking up the White Supremacy drug to replace the Russia Collusion drug -- last week, before Dean Baquet did her the favor of confirming everything she said.

Also note that she was one of the only people in conservative (or "conservative") media to call out the sudden fabrication of a new Moral Panic storyline when others in the "conservative" media, such as Rich Lowry and the National Review, were all too happy to agree with their leftist twitter pals and enjoy the Liberal Approval which they crave so much.

Sort of like another drug.
