11/24/21 Aaron Maté on the Award-Winning Lies Still Propping up Russiagate

On Antiwar Radio this Sunday, Scott was joined by Aaron Maté to discuss an article he wrote for Real Clear Investigations. Amidst the collapse of the Steele dossier, Maté wrote about five articles that either won the Pulitzer prize or were written by journalists who had won a Pulitzer, all of which were about disproven aspects of Russiagate unrelated to Christopher Steele. They discuss the framing of Michael Flynn, the fictional calls between Trump officials and Russian intelligence, the conflation of bots posting memes with the bombing of Pearl Harbor and more. 

Discussed on the show:

  • “Five Trump-Russia ‘Collusion’ Corrections We Need From the Media Now — Just for Starters” (Real Clear Investigations)
