Your Views: Media making matters worse for a divided nation

Isn’t it interesting that even after James Clapper stated that there was no collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, the news media is still calling for an investigation?

James Clapper, the head of national security for more than six years under Obama, in an interview on “Meet the Press,” said again that there wasn’t any reflection of collusion. I suppose it’s the well used news media policy that if you repeat the same lies enough times, people will believe them.

In 2015, the U.S. State Department issued a $350,000 grant to the One Voice Movement. This money was used to try and upset the election in Israel to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom Obama did not like nor get along with. Where was our supposedly unbiased news media when this was going on?

The news media could do a great service to this country if they would work to heal the divide we have arrived at. But they are intent on making the divide even deeper.
