Liberal Law Professor Blasts The Media For ‘Willful Blindness’ Over Spying By The Obama Administration

There are still some honest liberals in America.

Professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University is one of them. He is holding the media’s feet to the fire for their blatant hypocrisy and the way they are ignoring spying by the Obama administration.

It’s a massive political scandal and the big media outlets can’t be bothered covering it.

Turley writes at The Hill:

More willful blindness by the media on spying by Obama administration

The Washington press corps seems engaged in a collective demonstration of the legal concept of willful blindness, or deliberately ignoring facts, following the release of yet another declassified document that directly refutes past statements about the Russia collusion investigation.

The document shows the FBI used a security briefing of then candidate Donald Trump and top aides to gather possible evidence for Crossfire Hurricane, its code name for the Russia investigation.

What is astonishing is that the media has refused to see what should be one of the biggest stories in decades. The Obama administration targeted the campaign of the opposing party based on false evidence. The media endlessly covered former Obama administration officials ridiculing suggestions of spying on the Trump campaign or of improper conduct in the Russia investigation.

When Attorney General William Barr told the Senate last year that he believed spying did occur, he was lambasted in the media, including by James Comey and others involved in that investigation. The mocking “wow” response of the fired FBI director received extensive coverage.

Turley has been speaking out on Twitter as well:

Turley is an honest man. He deserves more attention from the media than he gets.
