NBC News Must Apologize for Slandering John Bolton and Gatestone

Last month, I did a basic fact check on an NBC News hit piece by Heidi Przybyla aimed at John Bolton and the Gatestone Institute.

The NBC News hit piece was fairly typical of what journalism looks like today. It was based on innuendo, artfully tying together assorted false claims for a smear, none of which individually amounted to anything. Gatestone was accused of being in bed with the Russians because its articles had been retweeted four times by Russian trolls.

Yes, you read that correctly. Four.

NBC News was playing guilt by association. Its target was John Bolton. But the association was based on Russian trolls retweeting Gatestone four times… so Bolton works for the Kremlin.

This is how shoddy the media’s Russian conspiracy theories have become.
