I think it may be disingenuous to suggest only Trump supporters are affected.
I dont think that it would be disingenuous to say such a thing, those who would say it would really believe it because their reading matter would have conditioned them to see Trump supporters in that way.
Back at the beginning of our discussion you accused me of not being a " non- questioner".
I am starting to think that may be a more apt thing to say about yourself.
A failure to agree to your rather firm view of what happened doesnt make me a non-questioner.
I dont think that I have the definitive answer that the Russians didnt do it, it is just that the agreed facts dont prove that the Russians did it. The suggestions that they did are from those with a belligerent stance towards Russians and an application of double standards, so I dont give them much credence.
If you really want to impress your Guardian reading friends, just read Al-Jazeera and RT everyday and you can tell them tommorow's news. An important part of our press is which stories they feel are worthy of presenting, if it wasnt for external news sources forcing the hand of internal sources a lot of "inconvenient" world events would get pretty much ignored.
