For the last month in a desperate attempt to delegitimize president-elect Trump the media and the democrats have been blasting the conspiracy theory that the Russians were behind the hacking of John Podesta and the Democrat National Committee. But in a huge blow to the mainstream media less than 1/3 of Americans believe Russians are responsible for the hacks according to a survey conducted by Morning Consult/POLITICO.
When asked to pick the statement that most aligned with their views, 46 percent of respondents chose one that said the U.S. can’t be sure who is primarily responsible for the hacking because tracing cyberattacks is complicated and because intelligence groups were wrong about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. In contrast, 29 percent chose the statement that said there was “near certainty” that Russia is responsible for hacking and that intelligence agencies had used advanced techniques to determine that the former Cold War adversary is responsible. A quarter said they didn’t know or had no opinion.
The mainstream media has cried wolf one too many times and now most Americans do not believe the bull crap they are peddling.
