After aggressively pushing the talking point for months that the Russian President Vladimir V. Putin endorsed Donald J. Trump for President of the United States — and in fairness, with The Donald embracing words of praise from Putin in campaign speeches — the mainstream media led by CNN has been forced to backtrack over the weekend. Speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) to CNN pundit Fareed Zakaria, Putin clarified his remarks and accused (post)Western media of mis-translating or distorting his earlier statements.
Once again the Russian leader emphasized that Americans would choose their next President, while also pointing out that the U.S. Electoral College system makes it possible for the choice of a majority of the voters to not actually win:

Putin Takes CNN’s Fareed Zakaria to Task for Words “Lost in Translation”
Interestingly enough, while (post)Western media including the neocon Daily Beast and former NATO spokesmen like Ben Nimmo have accused Russia and Russian media of massively promoting the UK’s Brexit from the European Union, Putin actually questioned the timing and agenda of Prime Minister David Cameron in Thursday’s referendum, calling it ‘blackmail’ of the EU. After making his highly critical sounding remarks, Putin then refrained from saying pro-or-con exactly how he would vote on the subject if he were British. Here’s the Iranian-state funded network Press TV’s translation of Putin’s rather complicated view of Brexit, which is definitely not that of frequent RT guest and UKIP leader Nigel Farage:
A hacker named Guccifer 2.0 has released documents that show collaboration between the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign. John Iadarola (ThinkTank), Jayar Jackson, and Elliot Hill (The Lip TV), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

It remains to be seen if more voices in mainstream media will challenge the Democratic National Committee and the Atlantic Council (NATO think tank)-linked cybersecurity executive Dmitri Alperovitch who the DNC hired that insist that the Democrats’ servers were hacked by state-sponsored Russian cyber-criminals linked to Moscow’s security services for over a year. Thus far, only Adam Johnson of leftist leaning website CommonDreams.org and a few cybersecurity specialists have questioned the attribution of the hack as well as the suspicious timing of announcing it, weeks after Trump all but locked up the GOP nomination and Hillary Clinton’s surrogates turned their primary focus of attack onto The Donald. Why for example if the DNC knew that its oppo research file on Mr. Trump had been stolen weeks ago did it wait for the conclusion of the GOP primary contest to announce this fact?
