If the media is as independent as they demand we believe, why is it they all tend to repeat the same word and/or narrative regardless if it’s accurate or not.

Of course, the names of the “congressional officials”, the “sources”, or “source” being not named is a red herring. Just take the media’s word for it and even though the Department of Justice denies that more “resources” were requested and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee that they don’t need additional resources to carry out the media’s Russia-stole-the-election-from-Hillary perpetual bludgeon, the “resources” repetition continues.
Hillary Clinton would be the 45th president today had it not been for the Russians working behind the scenes to get Donald Trump elected. President Trump is trying to squeeze off the “resources” needed by investigators to chop down the investigation into Russian meddling of our sacred; an investigation that’s been going on for many months with no evidence to prove anything. Yes, we got it.
However, there is one sticky inconvenience when it comes to the power of the president to fire an FBI director without consulting and acquiring the approval of the House, Senate, or the media.
It’s called, “the law”.
It is sometimes assumed that the President can oust an FBI director only “for cause” – that is, for some misconduct in office. But, as a Congressional Research Service study of the director’s office pointed out two years ago, “there are no statutory conditions on the President’s authority to remove the FBI director.”

We’re again supposed to take the word (“resources”) of a media that consistently violates journalistic ethics on the public sharing of sentiments from anonymous sources whose information can’t be verified, but as long as the media’s desired narrative is served, that’s all that we need to know.
