If the Trump Russian dossier story doesn't stay at the top of the news, I don't know what country we're in anymore. link
  • stevesilberman Media can only report news if it develops. Can't rehash stories for emphasis. It's public's job to keep dossier top of mind. link

  • JuneCasagrande Plenty of new related developments: link

  • stevesilberman I know. Just saying editorial decisions can't be guided by desire to make a point. We the ppl need to keep demanding answers

  • JuneCasagrande I'm a journalist myself. Obviously, advancing the story is crucial. That's what I meant.

  • stevesilberman I've made it my mission last few months to shout "Russia" to everyone I can, esp on Twitter. It's potus Achilles' heel.

  • Jim Roberts (nycjim)

    stevesilberman We'll do our part.

  • Bill Gross (Bill_Gross)

    stevesilberman thanks for your Tweet on this. I hope this gets explored.

  • patrice jones (gone_native)

    stevesilberman When added to the other stories, such as arrests in RU of FSB officers for treason, you ask what's the correlation?

  • Sarah Akin (E_c_h_o)

    stevesilberman Unspecified (non-salacious) details confirmed = hardly clickbait. But it's promising.

  • Ken M Erney (kmerney)

    stevesilberman LamkinSusan they are tossing up distractions and smoke screens. We need to persist.
