Minnesota Has Its Own Fox News - Alpha News

Minnesota has its own version of Fox News. It's called Alpha News and they have the same MO when it comes to "news". They tried to destroy the campaign of Ilhan Omar when she first came on the scene. And now they are trying to provide their guilt by association tar and feather machine to Gov. Dayton and Al Franken. Their latest article is here:

Minnesota's Connection to the Trump Dossier

This is so absurd that I even hate to bring it up...but with this outlet, we are only to going to get more of the same.

Their supposed "connection" is through Marc Elias...

The report by the Washington Post alleges Hillary Clinton campaign attorney Marc Elias hired Fusion GPS in Washington D.C. to dig up dirt on Trump and his campaign in April 2016. Fusion then hired former MI-6 and British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to find connections to Russia.

They left off the part that says the Fusion hire originally came from a conservative site - now revealed as the Washington Beacon - and they also left out that Elias "retained" the firm - which means he did not know what they had. And in addition, the "news organization" does not mention that although the Clinton campaign and the DNC did contribute to the payments, they also did not know what Fusion had or was working on at the time.

Minor technicalities. It goes on.

He (Elias) also represented Minnesota Sen. Al Franken in his recount fight in 2008 against Norm Coleman and Gov. Mark Dayton in his recount efforts against now congressman Rep. Tom Emmer.

Objection! Relevance!

Alpha News forgets to mention that Elias, at the time, was a recount specialist and that the recounts were nearly a decade prior to these Fusion GPS revelations. How Franken and Dayton could possibly have a "Russian" connection is ludicrous.

Then this "news" organization retells the Franken recount story using the phrases "voter fraud"...."ballots in her car"...."ballot errors". Once again, all of this predates Russian collusion by nearly a decade.

If Alpha News is going to continue this type of Democratic character assassination - especially with dubious facts and bogus connections - then I would hope that they will be relegated to the places they belong....like the National Enquirer, RF Media, and TASS.

Information and truth are precious commodities. Politics seems allergic to both.

Klobuchar was to address CBS this morning to discuss the role of Social Media in the election of 2016 and soon to be 2018. The tax evasion by Paul Manafort preempted the interview, which was a shame. I wanted to hear her questions. I'm fairly sure Facebook, Instigram, and Youtube also wants a list.

The bots attack! Too funny...

What you fail to mention is that the Washington Beacon didn't hire foreign spies to inform their political agenda. The Democrats did.
