If you’re the sort who normally reads my ramblings, you probably heard the latest on the Seth Rich case. If you aren’t, if you rely on the mainstream media for your approved facts, then you probably didn’t.
News media blackout over Seth Rich revelations
The story that many conservative media considered a “bombshell” Tuesday didn’t even register as a blip on the screens of CNN, ABC and CBS.
All three of the networks completely ignored the revelations by a private investigator that DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was shot dead last July while walking home from a bar, had leaked more than 44,000 internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks before his death.
If you’re in the second, less-informed group, Rich was the DNC staffer who was killed — shortly after emails embarrassing to the the Clinton campaign and the DNC went public — in a robbery in which nothing was taken: not his smartphone, wallet, expensive nor wristwatch. Upon hearing those little facts, even I — who generally prefer to avoid unsubstantiated conspiracy theories other than for entertainment — immediately thought Hmm, a DNC staffer with access to the system allegedly hacked by “Russians” mysteriously dies after Hillary is outed and embarrassed; how convenient… again.
Oh well. You want the “real news” to cover the story? Start passing along an “unconfirmed rumor” that Rich was a Trump mole killed to hide the link. Instant 3 inch headline above the fold.
