Ever since Mike Cernovich dropped the bigger than Watergate bombshell report over the weekend outing Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, as the person behind the unmasking of the identity of various members of Trump’s team who were ‘incidentally’ surveilled during the 2016 campaign (see “Confirmed: Susan Rice “Unmasked” Trump Team”), a report which was subsequently confirmed by Eli Lake of Bloomberg earlier this morning, everyone has been wondering who within the Trump White House or the intelligence community supplied him with such a massive scoop.
But, as it turns out, Cernovich didn’t need a ‘deep throat’ within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America’s corrupt mainstream media outlets. As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration.
“Maggie Haberman had it. She will not run any articles that are critical of the Obama administration.”
“Eli Lake had it. He didn’t want to run it and Bloomberg didn’t want to run it because it vindicates Trump’s claim that he had been spied upon. And Eli Lake is a ‘never Trumper.’ Bloomberg was a ‘never Trump’ publication.”
“I’m showing you the politics of ‘real journalism’. ‘Real journalism’ is that Bloomberg had it and the New York Times had it but they wouldn’t run it because they don’t want to run any stories that would make Obama look bad or that will vindicate Trump. They only want to run stories that make Trump look bad so that’s why they sat on it.”
“So where did I get the story? I didn’t get it from the intelligence community. Everybody’s trying to figure out where I got it from. I got it from somebody who works in one of those media companies. I have spies in every media organization. I got people in news rooms. I got it from a source within the news room who said ‘Cernovich, they’re sitting on this story, they’re not going to run it, so you can run it’.”
“If you’re at Bloomberg, I have people in there. If you’re at the New York Times, I have people in there. LA Times, Washington Post, you name it, I have my people in there. I got IT people in every major news room in this country. The IT people see every email so that’s how I knew it.”
And while this could certainly be interpreted as a clever ploy to protect his real sources, Cernovich’s video comments seem to be validated by both his tweet from yesterday afternoon…

Obama may be the first POTUS brought down by a scandal after he left office. Every major outlet had this scoop, none would run it. https://twitter.com/cernovich/status/848672601576677378 …

…and the fact that Eli Lake of Bloomberg was able to conveniently confirm Cernovich’s story with his own article this morning.
All of which just begs the question of what other stories the mainstream media is sitting on in an effort to protect their chosen candidates.
These state/corporate media outlets further reveal themselves to be the real source of fake news. As Orwell said, printing what others want printed isn’t journalism, it’s propaganda. You’d think after these revelations stemming from the pre election wiki leaks dumps, they’d have learned a lesson or two and be trying to gain back some snippet of trust from the public, and yet here they sit, doubling down. If these journalists had this info, higher ups at the paper were doubtless aware of it and are therefore complicit as well. Their demise is long over due.
