Here’s a surprise: Aaron Maté, host of The Real News and contributor to The Nation, is calling out fellow “lefty/adversarial sites” for their coverage of the Russian collusion story, which he says is looking more and more hollow.
The more I learn about Russiagate & its origins, the more I see how hollow it is. For media, there will be a teachable moment akin to Iraq WMDs. It's an uncomfortable fact that right-wing outlets have been far more aggressive in covering it than us lefty/adversarial sites have.

It’s enough to make you wonder if even one reporter at The New York Times or The Washington Post is starting to feel the same way.
Frank criticism from @aaronjmate, who has done excellent work on exposing the "Russiagate" hoax, as have some of his @thenation colleagues. And there are many media personalities on the right who have lent bipartisan cover to a conspiracy theory destroying our public sphere. https://t.co/kW1Kjm43tm

Does this mean the left is finally understanding the collusion claim is bs? https://t.co/UXVaoSdwkj

It's beginning to dawn on some on the Left that the Russiagate hoax is just that, a hoax. https://t.co/bFZXRMtHXD

Wow! Welcome aboard the truth train. When you dig into this, you think you are reading a Tom Clancy novel. Buckle up. https://t.co/TZgJhS1hOu

You can both: not be on Team Trump & be a Russiagate skeptic. I think there is a chance that this will ultimately be right. https://t.co/kx5yJKwvo6

The divide in this country isn’t between those who support Trump and those who don’t. The divide is between those who are seeking to nullify our elections and those of us resisting. https://t.co/uNiEtBnAwu

You mean a teachable moment in which no one in mass media learns anything or is held accountable?
If so, I agree. https://t.co/x1TK6Y1pP9
