A recent Jeopardy episode showed just how much that CNN and other media have failed to impress upon Americans their Trump/Russia collusion narrative.
And CNN was not happy about it at all.
The contestants were asked, “Which ex-national security adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI?”
One contestant guessed White House chief of staff John Kelly, another guessed former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka.
The correct answer is former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. But it had nothing to do with any Trump/Russia election collusion. It was about his contacts with Russians after Donald Trump won, during the transition period, trying to set up contacts for future, something completely normal to do.
CNN’s chief national correspondent John King was perturbed with this failure of the contestants to know the right answer. And he covered it in a segment on CNN, whacking on the lack of knowledge of the contestants.

From Biz Pac Review:
“Only the smartest of the smart get to be on Jeopardy, right?” King asked rhetorically Friday afternoon. “So what does this little exchange last night say about the nation’s focus, or lack thereof, on the whole [Robert] Mueller Russia meddling and collusion investigation?”
Perhaps it says that sane people don’t give a hoot about an investigation that’s not only produced no convincing evidence against the president, but that’s been accused of being corrupt?
“I would bomb on Jeopardy, but I’d get that one right,” he condescendingly added.
How clueless and lacking in self-awareness can he be?
Here’s your answer, John.
How many hours, hour after hour, have you guys pushed this?
Yet despite the fact that your network has pushed Russia around the clock, smart Americans don’t care because they know it’s full of nonsense and just a media narrative.
Like Tablet magazine columnist Lee Smith sarcastically noted on Twitter, “CNN’s John King wants to know what ‘Jeopardy’ contestants were doing when they should have been watching thousands of hours of CNN’s Russiagate coverage.”
Actually learning about, doing and concerned with worthwhile things?
The smart people on Jeopardy aren’t alone. A 53 percent majority of all Americans say the investigation is politically motivated, according to a CBS Poll that was published in May.
