Watch: Brutal Supercut of Media Pushing the Discredited Steele Dossier

With it now being an established that the claims made in the Steele Dossier, complied by former British spy Christopher Steele, have been debunked, let's take a look back at how those in the media remained adamant that the claims in the Dossier had been verified.


A supercut, complied by Grabien, shows how anchors, shows hosts, reporters, and their guests on CNN and MSNBC insisted the American intelligence community had corroborated close to everything in the Steele Dossier. 

People who defended the dossier include Jim Scuitto, Alisyn Camerota, James Clapper, Nicolle Wallace, and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA).

"I know the history of the dossier, but it has not been discredited. In fact it's been the opposite, it's been corroborated," Camerota told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) during an interview.

"Some of the substantive content of the dossier, we were able to corroborate in our intelligence community assessment, which from other sources, in which we had very high confidence," former National Intelligence Director Clapper said on CNN.

"To date, none of it has been disproven and whole big parts of it are holding up," Wallace reported one time, describing the dossier as being "right on the money."


Even with the release of the Department of Justice Inspector General's report on the FISA abuses, some journalists have defended the dossier or downplayed its role in the FISA applications.

In the Inspector General's report, investigators said that while they found no evidence of political bias for the start of the FBI's investigation and that the investigation was justified, they did find 17 significant errors and instances of omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the FISA applications the FBI used in their investigation into the Trump campaign were based "entirely" on the Steele Dossier.
