Partisanship plays heavily into how news outlets cover Russia hacking our election process and helping Donald Trump win the White House.

Okay so yesterday I decided to take my antacids and flip the channel over to Fox News for a bit, just to see how they were handling the CIA contention that Russia interfered in our election process to help Trump win the White House.

Spoiler alert: They are denying it altogether.

Not only that but they are mocking news agencies that are covering the story and accusing them of planting "fake news."

And the same holds true on every other Right Wing news outlet that I could find online.

Despite the fact that virtually EVERY respected newspaper and online news outlet is reporting the information as accurate, many using their own intelligence sources, the Right Wing is in total denial.

Of course this comes on the heels of a denial from the Trump campaign as well.

A denial that is also now being voiced by RNC spokesman Sean Spicer.

Which is weird because remember the Republican leaders in the House and Senate were informed of this information by the CIA way back in September:

The Post's report cited Republicans who expressed skepticism about the available evidence when presented with it in September, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

That is almost two months before the election, and the Republicans did nothing. 

On the other hand Democrats like Dianne Feinstein and Harry Reid were desperately trying to get the word out before  the election.

But they were ignored and even blocked by the Republicans who refused to admit that the Russians were working to hand the election to the candidate from their party. The very definition of putting party before country.

So now we have a couple of Republicans who feel compelled to launch an investigation, even though the damage has already been done.

It is pretty clear that many of these same Republicans heard that CIA briefing back in September, and yet they are only NOW getting off their old asses and doing something about it?

And because they were so reticent to undermine their party's candidate we are now stuck with a wholly unqualified megalomaniac who is currently filling his cabinet with the modern day equivalent of robber barons.

Remember that old movie from the 80's, Red Dawn?

We all laughed back then at how paranoid and implausible the film seemed.

How were we to know how easy it would be for Russia to actually invade our country and undermine our democracy?

And where were the Wolverines when we really needed them?
