FBI Probing “Far-right” News Sites Such as Infowars, Breitbart

Written by  Alex Newman

It seems the establishment and its propaganda organs are still smarting after being exposed as fringe and weak this election. Now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is supposedly investigating whether popular alternative media outlets were involved in an alleged “Russian cyber operation” in the 2016 election to help elect Donald Trump, according to two supposed anonymous sources quoted by the left-wing McClatchy news agency.

Among the alleged targets of the alleged federal probe are Infowars and Breitbart, two non-establishment news sites falsely characterized as “far right” by far-left journalists Peter Stone and Greg Gordon and the radical left-wing activists they quote as supposed “experts.”

Both of the conservative-leaning news agencies in question now have audiences dwarfing the readership and viewership of many increasingly discredited establishment-media voices. In fact, analysts suggest the two are among the most influential media outlets in the United States, if not the world. Critics dismissed and ridiculed the alleged FBI conspiracy theories involving the news agencies as ludicrous and potentially even “fake news.” The FBI would not publicly confirm whether or not the claim printed by McClatchy, based on supposed unnamed officials, was even real.

“Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say,” the McClatchy reporters claimed.

Did anyone see the crowds that were at Trump's rallies? Were those all Russian agents? No, it was US, the American people! WE elected Trump, not the Russians!

Of course, they need to throw everyone's attention somewhere else-Obama did it all the time-hey, look over here at the new, shiny object!! The Democrats do this to divert you away from what is really going on. They think we are all fools like the liberals but we actually can focus on more than one thing at a time! The FBI would be better served working for we the people-they're still operating under their own agenda here.

Nothing to find on the far Right. Perhaps they should look at the communist Left.

They can't seem to find anything incriminating, so they will keep going and going until all avenues are exhausted.

Funny! Also think about how everyone would freak out if Trump invited the Kremlin to Mar-a-Lago, as he did with Japan and will do with China.

Oh my god will this never end? Doesn't the FBI have enough on its plate? What about all the sites where potential terrorists are living? Either lay all the evidence out or put it to bed.

Comey needs to go...send folks to the White House petition...100 thousand signatures makes the President look at it. Comey should have been gone a long time ago.

Great first comment, Joyce. Welcome aboard!

It seems to me that what's going on right now is a kind of reverse McCarthyism from the early '50's. Except this time it's the Commies going after the patriots. Round them Commies up and hang 'em all !!!

The hearings made clear that the investigation of Trump since July 2016 was ordered by and only reported to Whitehouse staff and Obama's Attorney General. Thus leaks would have to been from the same. The Russian thing is bogus. The real issues are intelligence misuse and criminal leaks. Let the chips fall and corruption be exposed.

they just want to deflect the guilty party and try to bring down the ones who are bringing the truth.. because we all know that the russian issue was a false flag, the CIA created a false program and used it against its own state and are now making it look like russia was involved.. but blaming it on alternative media because they have too high of a followship .. hmm....competition anyone?

Well I guess this is how it's going to be. Anyone not falling in line with the liberal agenda is going to be under investigation by the FBI.

Pretty sad the FBI is down to combing through garbage versus doing their job! Could it be they have no balls? Some suggestions for real investigations--Fast and Furious; Holder lying to Congress; Benghazi and Obama/Hillary Role; a real and true investigation of Trump being wiretapped and Hillary emails and classified documents. Oh that's right, your a pro Obama agency. Maybe we could ask the real investigators out there like the local, state and military police to do the investigating and save you yet again!!

Time to move comet over and out. Cut his budget and eliminate any employees that you can. Comet may have a 10 year guarantee but not the rest of the FBI. Comet works for the o.

Why isn't the FBI looking into the media and allegations they don't seem to get right? Comey has come on with some pretty blatant that have been proven untrue. Embarrassing to have a
gov't agency so out of touch with reality. They are hurting us as US citizens making us look very inept in what we vote for and stand for. Time to get these agencies manned with patriots and
have them find out what is really happening, not all these fairy tales they love to weave.
