Where has your INTELLIGENCE gone, Soloman? This is just personal resentment of a “news reader” who’s actually gotten access to lots of good stuff from trusted sources, and she’s sharing it.
Putin’s Russia has one principal objective: Replace the U.S.A. as a world leader, but without an ethos that even HINTS at benefits for the governed. Their arch-enemy is the U.S.A., and anything they can do to weaken it (e.g., electing their eager supplicant, Trump) is a win in their book. If you can’t understand that, you’ve simply got your head in the sand.
This is how democracies fail: When the people simply “believe” “authority” figures seeking publicity, they are so easily swayed toward their own destruction. Maddow presents facts, with sources for confirmation. That you would try to foster a contrary attitude by making unsubstantiated claims (e.g., “The evidence is damning.”), and cite one irrelevant study from FAIR–arguing for US entry into another war–to alarm readers is not compelling. It serves to demoralize, not inform.
