You're not going to believe this story: it seems that a mainstream media news source went forward with a story damaging to a Republican without proper sourcing. I know! Daily Caller: "CNN Pulled Investigative Team Off Trump-Russia Coverage." "The error was also particularly damaging to CNN’s brand as it occurred as Trump was harshly criticizing the network over charges of biased coverage."
Then there's the other side of the coin: for the first time in 36 years, a sitting U.S. Senator is in the midst of a federal bribery trial. Political affiliation of this corrupt official: unknown. The Hill: "NY Times mocked for not mentioning embattled senator is a Democrat."
The "Paper of Record".
