Genuinely not sure if the increasingly embittered attacks on Bernie Sanders as he rises in the polls are being directed by Putin, but it's beyond dispute that the divisiveness sown from attacking one of the Dem frontrunners this way serves the Kremlin's interests perfectly.

Regarding the criminal charges brought by the Bolsonaro government: it’s a grave and obvious attack on a free press, brought by a far-right judge. We’re going to defend a free press, not be intimidated by authorities abusing their power. The reporting will continue.

Almost 100,000 people re-tweeted moronically & recklessly accusing Trump of *treason* for his Helsinki press conference, only for him now to casually admit it wasn't & deny he said it. Brennan is a pathological liar, a torture advocate, a killer & a icon: #Resistance 

A short two-minute video for those of you in the media pitifully insisting that no media reckoning is needed and journalists performed beautifully, soberly and responsibly throughout this whole saga:

Spike Lee with the question that will never stop being asked until it's finally answered:
