Accuracy in Media

Rob Reiner has teamed with Atlantic magazine editor David Frum, Obama administration alums and others to form the Committee to Investigate Russia.

It launched a website called InvestigateRussia.org, which is billed as a place “where all relevant information is aggregated in one place to provide context and allow users to see the full picture of what Russia has done and will continue to do unless we start paying closer attention.”

Russian interference in our elections is indeed a legitimate national concern. But given that it is staffed with dedicated Trump enemies James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence; Max Boot, former Wall Street Journal columnist; Norman Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute, and Reiner, an even-handed report is unlikely.

Morgan Freeman cut a web ad that promotes the roll-out in which he warns, “We need to pay attention before it’s too late.”

The site offers a pulldown menu of timelines labeled: Russia cyber attacks, Trump and Russia through the years, Trump and Russia during the campaign, Trump and Russia after the election, Trump Jr./Russia meeting, 6-9-16.”

The “History” section helpfully informs of what Vladimir Putin wants from allegedly disrupting our elections – money, power and revenge.  

Reiner, the former All In the Family star who was called “Meathead” by his father-in-law on the show, Archie Bunker, has called President Trump a “heartless prick” and “racist president” and has called for an “all-out war” to resist the president.

“What’s interesting here is that we really have a test, and we are being tested as to whether or not our democracy is going to survive,” Reiner told MSNBC.

CNN painted a brighter picture of the group’s mission, saying it “aims to widely share information about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election and its ongoing threat to US institutions.”

Frum told CNN the group’s mission is to bring clarity to the crazed world of Trump conspiracy theories.

“If you get your news from social media, especially Facebook, not everyone included among the Trump critics is very careful,” he said. “And so there are false stories that are spread. People need to know – what is the state of play? What is known? What is guessed at? And what is probably untrue?

They do need to know those things. The question is whether they will find out from this site.

    Of course, the clowns that are members of this new “Committee” all probably laughed when Obama told Mitt Romney “The ’80’s called, and they want their foreign policy back” when Romney said that Russia was the greatest foreign threat to the U.S.

    Why would anyone believe anything these bozos say?

    Archie was right. Meathead is a meathead.

    Russia is the excuse du jour of the manifest failures of the democrat party. Butt hurt Marxists don’t understand why they control nothing now!
    Their deeds since last November will insure their banishment from government for years to come. Sensible people, including moderate dems, no longer relate to the extremist alt-left.
    Great Entertainment!

    NEVER Trump!

    Thank you Rob Reiner and David Frum!

    I believe we need to develop an effective working relationship with Russia … but NOT BASED on Trump’s pandering to Putin nor the behind-the-scenes machinations of the corrupt nincompoops who are also trying to somehow make personal money in the course of developing that relationship!
