Seymour Hersh Blasts Media for Uncritically Promoting Russian Hacking Story   Recently updated !


The Intercept has the article and video clip Seymour Hersh Blasts Media for Uncritically Promoting Russian Hacking Story.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh said in an interview that he does not believe the U.S. intelligence community proved its case that President Vladimir Putin directed a hacking campaign aimed at securing the election of Donald Trump. He blasted news organizations for lazily broadcasting the assertions of U.S. intelligence officials as established facts.


The material above is the main point of the article, but I also wanted to give you the following excerpt which has some wisdom on what we could hope for.

While expressing fears about Trump’s agenda, Hersh also called Trump a potential “circuit breaker” of the two-party political system in the U.S. “The idea of somebody breaking things away, and raising grave doubts about the viability of the party system, particularly the Democratic Party, is not a bad idea,” Hersh said. “That’s something we could build on in the future. But we have to figure out what to do in the next few years.” He added: “I don’t think the notion of democracy is ever going to be as tested as it’s going to be now.”
