The news media has devolved from communication outlets to deliver news to public relations arm of the radical left/Islamic movement and destroyer of those in opposition to that very movement. Ilhan Omar should never have been elected to Congress…… had the people known.
Outrageous: Fixer for Ilhan Omar admits getting major Minnesota paper to kill anti-Ilhan stories — Report
By: Joe Newby, Conservative Firing Line, June 15, 2019
There’s a reason we call it the “Democrat-media complex.” A 2016 email posted to Twitter this week indicates that a “fixer” for terrorist-loving, America-hating, anti-Semitic Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar admitted getting the Minneapolis Star-Tribune to kill or squash negative stories about Omar.
“From @IlhanMN’s crisis manager Ben Goldfarb: ‘Does anyone in the team have a relationship with Blois? Someone should probably reach out to talk off the record and shut it down with him AS WE DO WITH THE STRIB’ [emphasis added],” Nick Solheim wrote on Twitter, with a picture of the email in question.
3. @IlhanMN's campaign staff is SO unwilling to go on the record with reputable journalists (Can't speak more highly of @bloisolson) that they resort to finding a fixer who has a "relationship" with Blois to "shut down" the story.
On June 14, Powerline’s Scott Johnson noted (Emphasis added):
It has now been a week since the Minnesota campaign finance board released its incendiary findings in the matter of Ilhan Omar’s 2016 campaign for the state house. The Star Tribune has published one story noting the board’s findings that Omar filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 205 with a man to whom she was not married while she was legally married to another man. Over what period of years did Omar do so? The Star Tribune hasn’t asked and Omar isn’t talking, but her refusal to respond to the Star Tribune on this point would be a story all by itself. Indeed, If Omar were a Republican, you can bet it would be.
He also referenced the email mentioned above:
I am thinking you will have to stick with us for the good stuff, such as this quotable quote from Omar crisis manager Ben Goldfarb in the Omar campaign emails produced to the board and filed under docket number 35): “Someone should reach out to talk off the record [with Blois Olson] and shut down [his coverage of Power Line’s initial post on Omar] as we do with the Strib [i.e., the Star Tribune]” (page 22).
Johnson also posted a redacted 44-page email file he said was “produced by the Omar campaign committee under docket file 35 in the Minnesota campaign finance board case.” Those emails can be seen below:

It is the conflict of our age, yet no one dares talk about it. The true story of the Islamic Supremacist war on free speech as told by those on the front lines fighting for our First Amendment rights,
Pamela Geller tells her own story of how she became one of the world's foremost activists for the freedom of speech,
individual rights, and equality of rights for all. "It's my story, it's what happens when someone fights for freedom in America today,"
Today Islamic supremacists are demanding more accommodation of Islamic principles
and practices than ever, and daily growing more aggressive in eroding our freedoms – with politically
correct public officials only too happy..
