MSM Barely Covers Controversial Obama-Era Uranium Deal

 Much of the mainstream media was virtually silent on a recent report about the Uranium One scandal involving the Obama administration, the Clintons and Russian interests. 

Last week, The Hill reported that Russia engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in an effort to enter the U.S. marketplace with an aim to increase Russia's atomic energy business.

Furthermore, the FBI knew about the corruption before former President Obama approved a controversial uranium deal with Russia that gave it control over a large percentage of America's uranium supply.

Additionally, millions of dollars were sent by Russian nuclear officials to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN spent only a few minutes on the bombshell report, according to a Media Research Center study

ABC and NBC did not cover the story at all during the first week after the bombshell Hill report.

CNN gave the revelations less than four minutes of air time and CBS covered the story for just over a minute.

In contrast, mainstream evening news programs have spent over 1,000 minutes since January 20 covering whether Russia tried to boost Donald Trump in the 2016 election and whether the campaign colluded with Russia.

Around one fifth of the evening newscasts' Trump coverage this year has been on the Russia collusion theory.
