They're just making up stuff

This is CNN.
Roger Kimball writes:
A suite of intelligence investigations that have been underway for months has revealed,  yep, nothing again. 
The mournful assumption among many of Trump’s supporters is that the frenzy of media hysteria, though almost comically baseless, is nonetheless dangerous because, on the throw-enough-mud-and-some-will-stick principle, it has an abrading, delegitimizing effect, a drip-drip-drip apodosis that is corrosive of trust. 
That may very well be the case. But I suspect nonetheless that the primary victim of the malicious static will not be Trump but the media, which has passed from carping hostility to surreal fantasy. 
Two things are happening. On the one hand, the media’s credibility has entered a death spiral. On the other hand, Trump keeps chugging along, toting up victories and setbacks, just like every other successful politician known to man.
It is clear to most observers now that the media’s “bombshells” fail to detonate because they are total fabrications. They just make stuff up.
Kimball, Editor and Publisher of The New Criterion and President and Publisher of Encounter Books, lists plenty of examples in his piece.

The goal is impeachment. And sure enough the CNN Chipmunk is hyperventilating.

Does anyone else have a problem with the name Wolf?
