Who is Josh Campbell? And do we really care?
The former assistant to former FBI Director has apparently landed a soft gig at CNN, which should actually tell us all we need to know, in that aside from embracing “fake news,” CNN is now embracing a fake “law-enforcement analyst.”
This apparently has some seasoned FBI veterans concerned, “What can [Campbell] contribute? I don’t think that he would be someone who could offer any type of, really, knowledge about what law enforcement analysts are, because, what is his experience?” said former Special Agent Jack Garcia, a 26-year FBI veteran.
Garcia and another 25-year veteran of the FBI referenced Campbell’s lack of actual field experience noting that much of his 10-years was spent at headquarters, most recently in a media relations role out of the Los Angeles field office.
Garcia lamented; “Something smells so bad about this whole thing.”
Campbell’s last day at the bureau was February 2 and his apparent task at CNN is to continue promoting “fake news” perhaps being more of a cheerleader defending both his former boss and also the unraveling scandals within the bureau, giving both a positive spin.
Moreover, his official title as described by CNN is a “law-enforcement analyst,” although Campbell has no actual experience in that capacity.
So why the big blowup on CNN of a relatively “little fish”? Perhaps the fact that Comey will inevitably be back in the limelight defending himself in the coming weeks and months will give CNN the opportunity to cash in on its investment using Campbell’s cheerleading skills in helping to rehabilitate Comey’s disingenuous and corrupt character.
Campbell noted in late January that he was proud to stand behind his fired former boss and called him a “true public servant.”
The young agent also wrote an op-ed published in USA Today defending his boss after being fired by President Trump, calling him a “servant.”
“[Comey is] a giant of a man with an even bigger heart, whose focus was always on trying to understand and improve the lives of others.”
Do you believe CNN is using Campbell to promote an alternate reality regarding the unfolding FBI scandals – basically “fake news” with a twist?
