Scott talks to Gareth Porter about the New York Times’ continued efforts to bolster the story that Russia both interfered in the 2016 presidential election and continues to do so in the lead up to the 2020 election. This time around, they allege, Russian actors are working on behalf of both President Trump, and also Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary race. Porter reviews some of the reasons why these claims are spurious, and he and Scott rehash a few of the Times’ other great blunders.

Discussed on the show:

“The New York Times’ Insidious Ongoing Disinformation Campaign on Russia & Elections” (Consortium News)“The Plot to Subvert an Election: Unraveling the Russia Story So Far” (The New York Times)“Same Goal, Different Playbook: Why Russia Would Support Trump and Sanders” (The New York Times)“Pompeo and Netanyahu paved a path to war with Iran, and they’re pushing Trump again” (The Grayzone)
