CNN’s Maeve Reston discusses the network’s obsession with Russia even though voters ‘don’t care’

CNN political reporter Maeve Reston confessed that her network is obsessed with all things Russia, a Russian conspiracy, but but at the same time conceded the voting public simply doesn’t care about the “Russiagate” conspiracy.

Reston was discussing voter sentiment with CNN’s White House Correspondent Sara Murray on Sunday’s ‘Inside Politics’ show when she made the surprising on-air remark.

“I’m so interested to see how the Russia investigation affects things, because so far, out in these districts when you talk to people about Russia, and that’s all we talk about at CNN basically, they say they don’t care,” Reston said.

Check out the video below.

Reston didn’t address the lack of evidence, the fake report on Trump linked to the DNC, but rather stated that  the alleged “Russian collusion” doesn’t have any effect on people’s lives. Reston also said there’s less fear about the state of economy today than during the 2016 election campaign. 

“You are starting to see that uneasiness about the economy sort of dissipate,” she said.

CNN’s own analysis asks if the “Is the market too hot?”: “The rally is so broad because hopes are high for strong earnings by companies across the board. That’s partly because the healthy economy is keeping consumer demand strong….But the lower corporate tax rate will help, too. Companies are touting bonuses and pay raises that they plan to give to workers with their tax savings.”

Translation: confidence in Trump, the direction of the economy and the new tax cuts which greatly benefit companies.

CNN has been regularly called out by Trump as a ‘fake news’ outlet for their reports tying him to Russia.

The network doesn’t seem interested in setting the record straight when they get it wrong. For example, CNN ran a story claiming Donald Trump Jr. received advanced exclusive access to documents published by Wikileaks via email. The report was debunked when it was revealed the network got the date of the email wrong.
