The mainstream media doesn’t seem to want to report on anything else outside of the Russian hacking of the DNC as proof positive that Vladimir Putin essentially assured Trump’s victory. Yet, most of the msm will not report on the fact that Russian hackers DID try to get into the RNC’s network and failed to get through its security defenses.
That’s right, the DNC left themselves wide open and the RNC was smart enough to take the right precautions. That has to be some sort of indicator of which party is the most logical.
According to CNBC, their attempts to hack into the RNC was “less aggressive” and “much less persistent” than their attacks on the DNC. Perhaps it’s because the DNC didn’t bother to take “Cybersecurity 101.” This is also from CNBC:
The report comes after a fraught election campaign where senior U.S. national security officials concluded that Russian intelligence agencies hacked the Democratic National Committee. U.S. intelligence services said they stole emails from Democratic officials, including the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Russian officials have strongly denied the accusations.
Moreover, a CIA assessment showed that “the Russian entities hacked both Democrats and Republicans and only the Democratic information was leaked.”
In fact, the RNC contacted the FBI in June after the first Wikileaks hack of the DNC. After that hack, the RNC upped the ante with their security measures.
Plus, the FBI was aware for months that the RNC was a victim of a hacking attempt. Which is probably why the CIA was all alone at first leaking statements to the media about Russia hacking and so on. This is from HotAir:
Their conclusion that the leaks were intended to boost Donald Trump are entirely predicated on the theory that the hackers had gained access to data from both parties. If the Russians had inside information on both Democrats and Republicans but only publicized the former, then one could conclude they were playing favorites. But if they didn’t hack both parties, then this goes from an operation to elect Donald Trump to a much-more plausible explanation: the Russians wanted to sow confusion and doubt, not elect someone in particular.
So, basically, some agencies are politicized. And, the beat goes on.
