Media Beware of Your War On Sebastian Gorka

In their desperation to bag another National Security Adviser, Sebastian Gorka, the media has stooped to new lows of false news manufacturing. They will use such tools as guilt by association, or just outright lies. Instead of destroying Mr. Gorka, they seem to be hell-bent on self-destruction. This will not turn out well for them. 

As Written By Richard Miniter for FORBES: 
Tomahawk in hand, reporters have been hunting Sebastian Gorka, a national-security advisor to President Trump, for more than a week. They are scalping themselves instead.
Media attacks on Gorka are wide-ranging and, seemingly, coordinated. Some are straight-up character assassination, such as trying to tie Gorka to anti-Semites by playing six-degrees-of-separation with Hungarian populists. Others contend that Gorka has an “extreme” view on Islam and seeks a war with its more than one billion followers—ignoring that he writes in his 2016 book Defeating Jihad: “We are not at war with Islam.” Then, there is the major media’s respectful coverage of a weird Twitter storm touched off by a self-described “terrorism expert,” who has virtually no credentials, who nevertheless contends that Gorka is “unqualified.” Finally, there are the attacks on Gorka’s 2007 dissertation for having too few footnotes, among other trifles.
All of these accusations are treated as news and amplified by TheWashington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and other major outlets. The aim? Bring down another Trump national-security advisor, after National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and would-be National Security Council spokeswoman ……
