The media is really and truly working overtime to spin the news that the Obama administration may well have been spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Imagine being so incredibly biased in your personal/political views that you’re incapable of actually covering the news as news.
That’s what we’re seeing with the so-called ‘traditional’ media.
Don’t take our word for it, look at this nonsense from the New York Times:
Really? At the time the FBI was conducting a counterterrrorism investigation, i.e, acting in its capacity as a spy agency. –> F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims https://t.co/u01OceKgto

From the New York Times:
No evidence has emerged that the informant acted improperly when the F.B.I. asked for help in gathering information on the former campaign advisers, or that agents veered from the F.B.I.’s investigative guidelines and began a politically motivated inquiry, which would be illegal.
Investigative guidelines? That sounds a little bit like ‘spying,’ yeah?
This is how they concluded the story:
One of Mr. Trump’s lawyers, Rudolph W. Giuliani, acknowledged on Friday that neither the president nor his legal team knew with certainty that the F.B.I. had implanted a spy in the Trump campaign, as he and the president had alleged.
“I don’t know for sure, nor does the president, if there really was one,” Mr. Giuliani said on CNN. “For a long time, we’ve been told there was some kind of infiltration.”
If they worked any harder to spin this story their heads might spin right off their shoulders.
Yeah okay the Easter Bunny is real too

You mean he’s not?
If we keep changing the semantics of words and redefining laws, everything will be OK…?

They weren’t spying, they were ‘investigating.’
Their cred. is in the toilet…

And it has been for years.
The New York Times is a joke

With no real punchline.
Another way of saying “spying” hoping that people will not think about it for longer than two seconds.

The spying didn’t happen.
Ok, the spying was for Trump’s own good.
Ok, they weren’t really spying, they were investigating.
We’re getting dizzy ourselves watching this spin spin spin.
