The Smirnov Affair: MAGA Republicans Are Useful Idiots for Russian Intelligence

Why Troubling News:

You are able to clearly see this this article is bias just from reading the title. The author uses heated language that is very clearly anti-Republican. I was able to tell that this article would be slanted against right-wing politicians right away. The bias becomes even more clear once you begin to read the text. Mother Jones writes about how Republicans have worked with the Kremlin to undermine Biden. Whether or not this is true, the article provides minimal unbiased facts or research to support their claims. The only source they utilize is Alexander Smirnov. The author makes no effort to challenge the Eastern European man's claims. The text could have potentially become a groundbreaking investigated article if they would have just more effort into challenging and confirming certain details of the whistleblowers story. It is not enough to rely on the opinion of one person.
