I generally agree with you that the Russia Scandal is being used as a tool by the media to push their narrative on us and keep people scared and angry. I think you are right to tell people that they should be critical of the media.
What I don’t agree with you on though, is that the whole scandal is smoke and mirrors. This is a real investigation with real transgressions by the Trump administration, probably not treasonous by current standards. But it is still very concrete evidence that Trump and his administration are lying to their constituents consistently, are willing to take be at least partially bought by foreign interests, and are generally interested primarily in power over the American interest.
One needs to avoid being pulled by propagandized tactics, but also be properly skeptical of this comically inept administration. Balance is everything.
